I have two questions for this thread,

Lets say we are in a smarky crowd like Chicago, New York, London, Miami, etc... and a wrestler debuted in WWE who was never contracted with WWE or WCW made their debut, what wrestler would get the biggest ovation? Who do you think would also have the longest staying power?

Samoa Joe
AJ Styles

....can't think of anybody else.

Oh, and Miami is NOT a smarky crowd btw. Don't let the mostly tourist Wrestlemania crowd fool you.

Maybe Abyss or AJ Styles.

Most of the Japanese or Mexican stars that I can think of that would get a reaction were in WCW.

Probably Samoa Joe, quite honestly. But he'd have to be a re-motivated, in-shape Samoa Joe to have much staying power.

I realize the question asks for individual wrestlers, but I think, if handled right, the Motor City Machine Guns could make for some good pop material. Lord knows the Tag Team 'Division' is in need of a booster shot of some kind.

As for individual wrestlers, I'd have to go with Bobby Roode. I could see Abyss getting quite a pop too, especially if he was to challenge Kane to a battle royale.

Only as Sunday Night Heat jobbers. They weren't contracted.
Yes they were, don't talk out of your ass.

AJ Styles, easily.
AJ Styles was in WCW...

AJ & Joe were never contracted by the WWE. They both were given trial matches on television but that was it, nothing more.

I'd go with Samoa Joe or KENTA to get a big pop from a smark crowd.

Maybe AJ Styles, yes he was in WCW, but not as a big name.
TNA's made starst arren't big enough. Nobody would give a fuck about Roode or the fat cowboy.

AJ Styles and Samoa Joe get as big a pop as is actually possible working in The Impact Zone but when TNA goes on the road or their overseas tours you actually realise just how big their pops actually are. The problem is though that the internet means nothing is a surprise anymore for the most part which would water their pop down but i think both men could be great in WWE if given a chance.

In smarky places, any big ROH guy, or guys like Joe/AJ as people have said.

Although if Raw goes to Nebraska and Utah and a big ROH dude debuts there...wanna see that.
