It seems the abundance of badasses are growing thinner and thinner every year. Whether you think thats a problem is up to you but imo, it flat out sucks and to me makes the product look too "teeny". The only real badasses left are The Undertaker(who I'm sure is retiring soon), and maybe CM Punk but other than them 2, who else is there? I guess you can say Randy Orton but imo, its sometimes hard for me to see him that way given all that baby oil, and that sort of clean-cut look he has. I mean rewind the clock only 5 or 6 years ago and you had:

Kurt Angle
Batista
Chris Benoit
Triple H
Shawn Michaels(post back surgery he wasn't nearly as "sexy boy")
Umaga


plus a younger Undertaker and Kane. I get the whole PG thing and Vince wanting to cater to a younger audience but all those guys I listed can work/have worked in a PG environment. I know Daniel Bryan is getting over with this "nerd" gimmick and I'm happy about that but at the same time I was kinda sorta bummed they didn't stick with his whole technical wrestler who can "Kick you in the head" thing. I don't really follow NXT but most of them seem like MTV pretty boys besides Brodus Clay.

Re: Who in your mind today is a "badass"?

Beth Phoenix and Michelle McCool are badass for diva standards. For the men, I'd say Ezekiel Jackson, Michael Tarver, and Randy Orton.

I have a feeling we aren't gonna see Tarver again. He just seems like someone the WWE wouldn't give a real opportunity to.

Badasses in general are decreasing. The business is being cleaned up. Gone are the days or Harley races and Stan Hansens.

Cena :lmao:lmao:lmao:lmao:lmao:lmao
I do see Cena vs. Punk at WM27 and I am hoping its a submission match. Granted neither are technical wrestlers but both could carry that match. I think Cena will surprise much he like he did last year against Bautista and like he did against RVD at ONS. One of Punk's problems could be Cena is not "extreme enough" and that would set up a match were they beat the living tar out of each other. But, I am just a pion and don't write for the WWE, they know so much more then I do and we will probably get Cena vs. Orton 17 for the strap at WM27

I think Barrett is a badass in an atypical sense. He carries himself with so much confidence and has a commanding presence.

OMG,GOD FORBID.The world does not need a submission match involving Cena.We got enough problems with polution,slave corporations and mainstream brainwashing.

Wade Barrett and Michael Tarver were the closest things to badass in current WWE. Too bad they're both heels.

Does Finlay even wrestle anymore? I thought he's a divas trainer now?
He's backstage... Something.

Big Zeke is the only one I can think of.

Finlay? Really? I just see him as an old man and I think most of the people on this forum (without knowing what anyone looks like) can beat Finlay's ass, just based on how he looks.
