Steve Austin - great promo, great matches, unique character but for whatever reason I just never cared about him. Even as a kid, I'd want the Austin action figures to complete a full roster but he never inspired me. There's not a specific reason I can think of, but I just never cared much about him

Jeff Hardy - outside his stuff as the Obsolete Mule Brother Nero

and I never connected with Goldberg

And I'll say Reigns has some level of talent so him too.

A huge amount of top guys in WWE for the internet fans are guys I missed when I was out of the wrestling loop in between my teen phase and my phase now so I have no real emotional connection to guys like Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins, CM Punk. I am not disputing their in ring ability at all I respect all of them as workers but that deep emotional connection the fans have to these performers... I guess you just had to be there.

Of more current talents, I thought Balor and Asuka were over pushed in NXT and so that killed my interest. I also think the Gargano/Ciampa feud has been incredibly mismanaged so I do not have the emotional investment in this feud like I did with them when they were a tag team.

Dean Malenko
I know that he is talented, but when compared to even Benoit he lacks any character to make me interested in him

In Morden times, Finn Balor, he was only really interesting when he was acting like a Chav in NJPW, the fact that he calls himself the Rocknrolla pisses me off because the movie Rocknrolla is one of my favorite of all time
I agree w/ Dean. I was never interested in him and found him to be incredibly boring. Only time I had any interest was when Jericho was feuding w/ him back in WCW.

Jericho knew how to make Dean's Stoic personality a strength

other than that, when he faced High Flyers it was interesting to see the contrast between Jo's style and there's, especially when he had a lot of counters to flippy moves

Aj - terrible babyface on the mic, just boring, great wrestler

Becky - don't see her appeal, decent in ring

Bliss - tiny girl who looks like she shouldn't be in a wrestling ring, but has a solid character

Reigns - all the talent in the world but when he opens his mouth he sounds like a goober

Charlotte - outside of her daddy's name I just don't see it, does a great moonsault

Seth Rollins. I just can't connect with him for some reason. I don't know what his deal is besides burning it all down. I think I preferred him heel.

I can't help noticing that despite his incredible athleticism I just don't believe his work for the most part, and I hate the fact that he personifies this modern day style of no-selling - case in point the superplex to falcon arrow. Superplexes have always hurt both guys to an extent, somehow Rollins is immune.

Just going to go with current guys NXT/main roster because beyond that it's irrelevant. I have never felt a connection to Daniel Bryan in his time in WWE. I have no connection to Riccochet immensely athletic but beyond that, I see and feel absolutely nothing. Bayley is another one.

There's a few, but I'll list my top 3.

Sami Zayn: While he's a fantastic performer and is over with the crowd, I just can't get into his character. It's so boring and I have issues connecting to him on a profound level. I hate it because he's so talented, but what can you do?

Sasha Banks: Fucking phenomenal performer, great on the mic, is over with the crowd. All the ingredients that should make you love a person. I. Literally. Fucking. Hate. Her. I cannot stand her. She's just frustratingly annoying and the whole "I'm legit, I'm the boss" thing pisses me off more than anything else in the WWE. I really want to like her, but I cannot.

The Revival: There's literally nothing to complain about with these two. They're the embodiment of perfection when it comes to tag team wrestling in the WWE today. I can't get into them or connect to them on an emotional level. I hope I can somehow get past that barricade someday, but for now, I'll just silently dislike them, haha. :(

I'm a little bit afraid to say this out loud but Daniel Bryan.
Fucking reported.


I enjoy Daniel Bryan but the only time I legitimately cared about him was when he was with Wyatt and when he had his crowning moment. Before that, and even now... I just don't care.

For me its Balor. I have never been a fan of the guy but there is no denying he's got talent.

I blame bad writing partially, his character is a complete mess and he is at the point where he annoys the hell out of me whenever he comes out. The Demon thing is pretty cool when they use him that way and he's got an awesome theme, probably my favorite in the company right now. But I just can't get into his work overall, I think he's overrated.

Daniel Brian: Tons of talent, but I just get bored with him.

Charlotte Flair: She's very talented in the ring, but she also bores me. Reminds me of Lance Storm.

Rick Flair: Never liked him even though I can see why others do. To me he has always come off as an annoying old man, even when he was younger in WCW.

Roman Reigns: He may eventually win me over, but his early career booking just made it really really hard to like and appreciate him. But watching him in ring I have to say he has improved immensely.

Sasha Banks: She's got some talent and probably deserves some more high profile matches, but I find her annoying and not in a good heel sort of way.

Ronda Rousey: She's not great, but she's better than I expected. But the way they are putting all attention on her is giving her Roman Reigns syndrome with me. She could improve over the next few years and become amazing and I will still have trouble enjoying her on screen.
