Nobody, really? So we're pretending that the opportunities that were given to Rusev he somehow didn't knock out of the park? And the reasoning for him no longer even making shows is because he just didn't make them successful, right? FOH
Rusev is exactly the type of guy Corbin is talking about- he WAS given opportunity but him and his wife blew it as she posted engagement ring on her IG in the middle of a feud between her and him , ruining the entire storyline.
Could you imagine back when HHH and Austin was trying to murder each other that HHH posts a pic with Austin hugging each other and drinking a beer at a bar together? No chance In hell.
Also his wife have been known to be a brat backstage and pissing people off .
Finally Rusev is exactly the type of guy who tried , didn’t work out then then just went on social media bitching about his position in the company and so on.
Corbin is spot on in about everything in this interview- look at guys like Wyatt- he started as Wyatt family , didn’t work out as planned but instead of bitching he kept pinching ideas and redeveloped himself and is now the hottest act on Raw.
Granted some guys are more marketable by default and will initially get more favorable booking but if someone is persistent and keeps trying and shows to work without bitching , they usually do get opportunities.
Rowan is another good example of a guy who never complained and was always put in jobber spots but him being a good company guy now earned him a good opportunity to show everyone what he is capable of.
