You're big Drew fan, it's been very well documented.

- Pushed too soon and too hard, but ironically, it never had a big or meaningful payoff.

- He didn't connect well with the crowd for some reason.

- His run as a tag champ reign with Cody was ruined/overshadowed by the Cena/Nexus angle, which was going downhill anyways...

- He was overall average in most aspects, and stuff like his accent didn't help.

- Vince was removed from TV by the time he most needed his big sponsor, both in realistic and kayfabe terms.

- Back to the way he was pushed: Why did he become an Intercontinental champ, instead of the WHC?
Basically, WWE introduced Sheamus and he was pushed to the moon, and he became the WWE champ...
Drew's push is nothing in comparison.

NOW, Drew is one of best wrestlers on the roster and he has really perfected "the small" things, facial expressions, movements, doing the "little things".
Have in mind that he has now been wrestling for more than 10 years!

He still may lack the mic skills (he is just average) and the accent may still "hinder" him, but the biggest issue is the "lack of charisma", ie the "classic Rock charisma".
I still think that he can eventually learn how to convey/channel his charisma better.
Him flirting with women in the crowd and sitting on the announce desk and taunting the commentators is a good start...

Too bad no one watches Superstars. :/
