... the Miz haz been a better in-ring performer, worked harder, sold better, and had better ring psychology than Daniel Bryan for at least 2 yearz, and haz alwayz been better on the mic and been more entertaining, and dezervez to defeat him cleanly in a high-profile match.

I think when the dust settles in the title scene, he'll be right there in the middle of it as is. I compare him to "Rapping Cena" fairly often.

...in the same vein...

...Luke Harper should have been positioned in the Roman spot.

If Luke was a little bit tidier, he could have been.

R-Truth deserves a spot amongst the top. Probably not "THAT guy"...but his shape and agility for his age and career deserves mote. Not to mention his charisma and the man has SHOWN he can do so much more at a higher level than what he's been doing.

crazy to think that he was a world champ in CMLL, but WWE out a porn gimmick on him and pretty much hinder his chances.

Gonna try to be positive: "I may be the only person in the world who thinks this but..." If Big E stops doing shitty comedy, he could be world champion material with a good month's work.

I've always said he could be so much more on his own if he just stopped all of the kiddin' around. The New Day? As Hank Hill would say..."that's just asisinine."

You are not the only one who thinks this. Now KOFI on the other hand. I think he could be world championship material if he stopped soding sh*tty comedy. I don't think he SHOULD get the belt, but I think he COULD carry it well if given the chance.

I don't think Kofi was ever quite given a real chance to sit at the big boys table. He's part of that "lost generation" with Miz, Punk, JoMo, Swagger, MVP, Mr. Anderson, Carlito, Shelton, Cody, Ted Dibiase Jr., Lashley, Drew, Ziggler, etc (you could even throw Wade Barrett in here but he doesn't quite fit in with the timeline) where they mostly just kept sabotaging guys in favor Cena/Hunter/Orton/Batista/Edge/Taker (and, to an extent, Rey). Yes, some of those guys (notably Lashley and Anderson) were hampered by injuries, but most of the others get hurt by backstage stuff, be it Vince's cold feet or a reputation getting injured too easily (and, of course, Cena and Orton complaining about Anderson's dangerous sloppiness). Aside from Miz and Punk, that's an entire generation of midcarders who should have been ready for main event status in 2010-2012 and other than Punk and Miz, the few of them that ever got pushed there wound up getting sabotaged by bad booking (Dolph doesn't get a real main event chance until 2013 and Vince gives up on him seemingly right away after his concussion), and it's not until later that Vince starts taking chances on newer guys (Sheamus, Byran, Del Rio, Barrett to an extent) because he's desperate more than anything else, and even then, all of those guys except Del Rio wind up getting immediately shoved down the card after Vince decides to cut their initial top run short, with Bryan getting even more over precisely because the fans were so angry about this, which, when combine with Cena's injury, all but forced Vince to go with him.

Are you just parroting what I said about all if Cena, Orton, and Hhh's title reigns from the RAW topic a few weeks ago or what here?

Kingston just isn't THERE. He could be higher up, but I don't him as that guy either.

Christ Masters should have theoretically been world Champion. If 'NO ONE BREAKS HIS MASTERLOCK...", Then why isn't he the champion?

It's kind of like the Mark Henry thing...if one truly IS "The strongest man in the world", with "the strongest slam in the world"...how does he ever lose and why is not undefeated for like ...ever?

Not even close. You were complaining about guys having a lot of title reigns and gave examples of people who they actually did put the belt on, almost all of whom came up/returned to the company after WrestleMania XXVIII (we'll count Ryback and Skip Sheffield as different people because they basically kayfabe are). You even complained about them putting the belt on Punk. The time you were complaining about is nowhere near the most egregious time of inflating title reigns (other than the women's division, which you never mentioned). What I'm saying is that the generation before never really got a fair shot. You noted the symptom (inflated reigns for Hunter/Cena/Orton/Edge). I'm noting a cause.

In Masters' case it's partially because he's a heel and would often cheat in his Masterlock Challenges or was outright lying and some babyfaces were able to break it (Lashley, Cena), while others he refused to put it on (Big Show), or others he let the hold go on his own when he saw they wouldn't give up and assaulted them (HBK).

Also with both Henry and Masters, in order to hit their move, they have to be able to hit someone with it. If you don't get caught in the move, the move can't hurt you. Also, you might not appreciate this, being a muscle-lover and all, but muscles don't mean sh*t when faced off against a sufficiently skilled submission wrestler. That's the whole story of the early UFC shows.

To be honest, I wish New Day would go back to the reason they got together in the first place “overlooked disgruntled black wrestlers”.

And now they’re just bouncy bright smiley happy black wrestlers who sell mercy and throw pancakes.

Well as for the first section...you could say our ideas about those two split periods of time are one in the same because they pretty much just carried over the same problems from one period to the next. Cena, Orton, HHH and Batista to a lesser extent and The Undertaker-Fuck everyone else and no one gets a real chance about around 10 years or so and "accomplishments" and number of reigns go crazy. There's like two full time periods of wrestlers who never got, at LEAST, well deserved TRIES at or near the top just because they should have chanced on...MVP and others...they refused to put the belt on Cody Rhodes over and over for example and refused to take him to the next level. Beat Randy Orton clean. Fuck it.

He's not not going anywhere though.

Second bit...it's just more something I love to laugh and joke about...if YOU'RE "THAT STRONG"...nothing else should matter because it all takes is one slam.

Back to the matter at hand-

I just reminded myself-

I REALLY thought "Undashing" Cody Rhodes, (with the clear mask and hood) , should've been and was going to be world champion.
When they come, they'll come at what you love.

Beat Randy Orton clean. Fuck it.
I completely disagree that those time periods are one and the same. As I illustrated in the first post, you do eventually start to see people getting pushed relatively quickly into their careers (Del Rio, Sheamus) and new permanent top guys being created (Punk, Rollins, Reigns, Ambrose, Del Rio, even Bryan if you want to give Vince credit for him). Is this mostly out of necessity because Batista and Edge retire and Hunter and Taker only wrestle twice a year? Yes. But the internal sabotage/never giving them a real chance that plagued the Kofi/MVP/Anderson/Swagger/McIntyre/Cody generation is mostly gone until about 2015 when they start mishandling people people again.

I REALLY thought "Undashing" Cody Rhodes, (with the clear mask and hood) , should've been and was going to be world champion.
This was definitely a thing that could have been done.
