Re: Should/Is WWE a popularity contest?
Wrestling can't be a pure popularity contest no more than it can be a pure athletic contest because in both regards it's a rigged contest.
Booking, storylines heavily influence overness. I do think it's safe to say that when someone has been given fair opportunity to get over and has fallen short of exciting the crowd, that person should definitely drop out of the contest - Drew McIntyre for example
That being said, I've enjoyed plenty of wrestlers who weren't over. A talented performer should always have a place to showcase, even if they don't get loud reactions. They just shouldn't be in the conversation for FOTC
