I'll definitely have to check out RAW tonight.
Anyway, yeah - Vince doesn't really push the little guys (aside from Shawn Michaels). John Cena and Batista aren't good wrestlers... I'd even argue that Batista doesn't have much charisma (I 'spose it's hard to convey much emotion when the character is so laid back, though). I don't really mind, though.
Some of my favorite guys were never "great" wrestlers. As long as they entertained me, that's all I care about. Goldberg, DDP, Hulk Hogan, Scott Steiner, Booker T, Undertaker, Triple H, and The Rock aren't going to get confused with guys like Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko, Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho, Lance Storm, and Shelton Benjamin.
Even guys like Mick Foley, RVD, and the Hardy Boys were never great "wrestlers". They were exciting to watch, but because they did insane stuff.
Edited to Add: Just recently, Vince has banned the cruiserweights from using a few specific top-rope moves, limiting the high flyin' excitement even more that we all know and love.
If anyone wants to check out some cool high-flying moves, that TNA-wrestling has some cool stuff. I caught a couple shows back when it was on FOX-Sports, but now I think they show their stuff online now (they're moving to SpikeTV this fall, methinks).
The reason I think Jericho hasn't been able to get much of a push (aside from his Undisputed Champ. reign when Triple H was out) is because of "The Clique". The Clique is a group (consisting of Shawn Michaels, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Triple H, and X-Pac) of wrestlers that have a lot of power in booking decisions backstage. Back when Kevin Nash was booking WCW, there were rumors that him and Jericho weren't the best of buds... and when Jericho came into WWF, Nash's friendship with Trips could have held Jericho back.
...but that's just my stupid theory.
BTW, SPOILER ALERT!
...I'll type this very small, so if you're interested, copy and paste this next line into something else... or whatever. Involves Triple H and Ric Flair...
HHH and Flair are rumored to return on October 3rd, when RAW will move from SpikeTV to USA Network.
Hoo, how exciting!
Anyway, I'm done rambling.
BTW, did you Stacy Kiebler's phone number?
Another BTW, Bob Saget is awesome. Did anyone catch his cameo on Entourage
a couple weeks ago? Ah, that was great.
