Could have been a serious player but was the victim of a stacked era. It's hard to stand out on a roster that featured Goldberg, Hogan, Kevin Nash, Ric Flair and Scott Steiner.

He had a great look and more charisma than 95% of today's "talent".

Too bad he was pretty poor in the ring, especially worked against him when he debuted because WCW was still in-ring based.

He was fine in the ring. He wasn't Ric Flair but he could get by. He and Steiner were a great tandem in the the late 90s

His match with Booker T on RAW was terrible though.

Bagwell was his own worst enemy. WWE were going to give him a try, even after the Booker T match. However, he came into WWE with attitude problems. Example being, getting in a backstage fight with Helms, which Bagwell lost by the way. Also having his mom call in sick for him afterwards didn't help.

Had he came in humble, he could have been something in WWE. Would have definitely had potential to main event some of the split brand pay per views against Cena and Lesnar.

Here is his full shoot interview below. I think he was his own worst enemy but I don't believe most of the locker room crap and that locker room was shit towards Mike Awesome as well.
