Kanyon, Kanyon, and Kanyon. He could do everything at a high level.
No S.D. Jones love?
At least he went out on a high.
Carlito for sure, and more recently Kaval (Low-Ki) should have been used properly he could have had some amazing matches with some of the talent they currently have.
douglas would have been pillman light; aside from that he lacked the work ethic of a wwe superstar.
Light? No, Douglas was considerably bigger than Pillman and Pillman had a fused ankle so he couldn't do much anymore.
Just because Vince calls any entertainer who works for him a "superstar" doesn't make it so. ECW was built on work ethic. ECW fans were the most demanding fans in the country; they wouldn't settle for a WWE style match. If they would have, there would have been no reason for an ECW to exist and no way for it to thrive.
You didn't see the Douglas/Pillman angle did you? Pillman did something so dumb it could have ended the entire company. I'm interested to know if you even know what it was.
light in the attitude department; not weight.
threatening to piss in the ring? attacking the fake fan?
at the end of the day, douglas wishes he was half the hot take that pillman was.
No. They did an angle where it looked like Douglas was going to hit Pullman with a chair. Pillman ran into the area where the fans where and Douglas followed him up to the barricade. What was supposed to happen was Douglas was going to turn away for a second, pick up the chair and swing the chair at Pillman who was going to quickly pull hide behind a fan right before Douglas hit him. Douglas would have to stop the chair in mid-swing to avoid hitting the fan. Basically the idea was to show Pillman was too afraid to fight Douglas.
So Douglas turns, grabs the chair and starts swinging it as he's turning back around towards Pillman. Just a little ways before the chair connects Douglas stops the chair right as he sees Pillman didn't hide behind a fan. Pillman's still standing there and holding a baby in front of him that he grabbed from a fan. Had the chair hit the baby Pillman and Douglas would have gone to prison and the lawsuit would have bankrupted the whole organization. Of course the angle was abruptly ended and Pillman did nothing else for ECW except cut a few promos.
When in the history of the business has being the best "wrestler" meant more than fuck all? Taka couldn't carry the ballbag of Muta or Tajiri as an overall performer. Taka was basically the Japanese Jerry Lynn.
At every point in the history of the business before the WWF overtook the AWA? But hey, that's a whole different discussion. The point of the thread was discussing people you thought were great but didn't get pushed.
Taka Michinoku was and is a great performer. Same can be said of Muta and Tajiri, certainly. But Taka's amazingly talented, one of the best ever and he was a jobber in the WWF/E. So I think he constitutes one of the greatest skill to push disparities in wrestling history.
Actually, the fuck up was right before he dropped the belts to Edge and Big Show. He was arrested July 2nd, dropped the belts on the 3rd and 4th, and then was suspended for 30 days.
Bundy should've put him over
The lisp held him back
Longest 7 Seconds in history.
How could you say British Bulldog. He had a HUGE career even if he never held the world HW championship. He held many titles and was pushed very hard and was extremely over with the fans.
When I hear "the opportunity" in the WWF/E, I think World champion.
Beefcake had a horrible facial accident which bascislly killed his big push and in some sense his career.
WWF was about to give him a huge push in the 80s and a storyline had to be changed around because of his accident. It was not the same when he came back. He also was very over with the fans. They loved him.
