Hey Scott, big fan and all that. I've been thinking a bit about Wyatt, and I'd like to think I saw the problems with his gimmick a bit earlier than other people (e.g. he can't do any of the stuff he promises, the gaspy promo is repetitive as hell). So my question for you is this, has there been a time in which a good deal of people were raving about a wrestler and you had a strong feeling that they just wouldn't work out and then they proceeded to fizzle? Who were they and why did you know that it wouldn't work?
Well I knew Raven was going to die on the vine in WWE, but then that was hardly a Nostradamus-level pick. I knew they would give up on Bo Dallas pretty quickly and that's exactly what happened. There's tons of cases in WCW, but that was different animal, where typically it was because WCW fucked it up and not because of anything they did. I can't think of any other cases specifically off the top of my head, though.
