I just don't see how people can still act like they know with certainty how a guy would do in WWE one way or the other. Owens, Zayn, Nakamura, AJ, Seth, Dean, Bryan, Joe, Asuka, and on and on. There are countless examples of guys who everyone was sure was gonna be "ruined" or "be a jobber" or "get turned into a joke" in WWE, and yet there are a lot of those guys that went on to have success and be pushed. Now of course there are guys who they fuck up and fail with, tons of them, but that doesn't invalidate the successes.

All I'm saying is we can never be too presumptuous.

- Owens is fine.

- Nakamura just had the worst match of this career, crowds are already going dead when he comes out.
- AJ was fed to Cena and then turned into a midcarder despite being the best talent they have.
- Seth... you can't ruin what's already awful.
- Dean has been wrestling The Miz for like 17 years straight.
- Bryan they tried their hardest to ruin, kudos to him for overcoming that.
- Joe had a real bad start, but they've turned it around. We'll see if they actually maintain that or not.
- Asuka is fine, but then again Vince doesn't have his shit stained fingers in NXT as far as I'm aware. Let's see how it goes when she joins Raw.

I mean it's a job in which your end game is being horribly hobbled physically, suffering from some amount of brain damage, and the odds of you getting through all that with any kind of money saved up for retirement is slim to none.

Yeah, Zayn, the guy who is on TV every week and wins more than he loses, is buried.

Crowds don't care about Nakamura? What show are you watching? The reaction to the announcement of him against Cena was big. And that's going to be a hot match. And he's selling merchandise. Far, far, far from dead.

"Fed to Cena and turned into a midcarder". Uh huh. That's why he was in a featured WM match, held the world title for five months, beat Cena clean, and main events TV basically every week. Real midcarder there. Was Cena "turned into a midcarder" by holding the US title?

Seth and Dean are still over regardless.

Joe is made now. Crowds love him and react to him and Vince likes him.



The bottom line is that whether WWE is trying to ruin them or not, some guys succeed there that people expect to fail. Whether it's because of WWE or in spite of them. Success is success.

Because it's really tedious/really not worth it to argue if someone's legitimately doing fine or not if it can immediately be countered with "well, they're getting a reaction!"

Reigns is getting a reaction too, so it can't be argued that he's over. He's gotta be doing fine too then.

Brooklyn Brawler always got a reaction.

Silence can be considered a reaction, so Maria and Bennett are getting a reaction. Anything can be a reaction, so everyone's doing just fine and nothing needs change or improvement.

Well my main point isn't that everyone is doing the best they can be. It's simply that there's a space somewhere between "ruined"/"buried" and "used perfectly" that still constitutes success. And I think most of those guys occupy that space.

Sorry if my arguing bothers you. Or anybody here for that matter. Not trying to do that. Just trying to have discussion.
