    Razor had the potential to become WWF world championship caliber yet the company went in another direction. Make no mistake about it during that time period everyone was getting over and receiving pops. So while he is one of my personal favorites I also understand his case of hypothetical “what if” can go both ways.

    The guy was charismatic, 6'5" jacked up, with a resilient hairline and he could work with anybody. Its hard to understand why he never got pushed to the top of the business as a solo act. He was pretty much a featured performer for 10 years, always commanded full attention and never seemed out of place hanging out around the champ but not in contention for the belt.

    I tend to think if a guy like that debuted today, he'd get a decent trial run as world champ.

    Watched a Sean Waltman shoot where he said that Scott was the best of the Kliq when they got together. "Shawn is the best ever, right? That's how he got so good. Working with Scott. That's how we all got better."

    If he came in now? With that talent, that talk, a million dollar body and handsome as ten movie stars, mayne? He'd be The Guy... or given a pirate gimmick and curtain jerking on NXT because he scoffed at the proposed incest gimmick.

    The Cuban drug lord gimmick was too niche for him to ever be the face of the company IMO. He should have had a heel run with belt though.

    Maybe, but he kept the character without the gimmick and stayed good

    The guy had the look and the persona, great in ring performer and killer mic skills.
    I don’t think there is any one who doesn’t like RR sadly his own demons got him bad for a few years.
    He was never the top guy but man he was so fucking cool and ahead of his time, the most time it passes the most i admire RR. I can only imagine how BIG would be if prime RR would be on wwe right now

    he wasn't the top guy because he stepped aside so his best friends could take turns being the top guy.

    If he keeps up the healthy living, he may see a mention for Hispanic heritage month before Pedro Morales does.
