The Undertaker thinks having a good character and being able to cut a promo is worth more than someone that can do a great number of moves. I think the Undertaker is correct but to a certain point. You can be great on the microphone and have a great character created by Vince but if you can't produce in the ring you will not last long and I think its the same thing reversed if you have a horrible character, bad promo etc. What are your thoughts????

In the WWE, yes.

Moves are important, but if you have no attractable qualities than you won't get any steam. Look at guys like Lance Storm or Shelton Benjamin. They could put on a 5-star, pure wrestling, match but no one would bat an eye since they're vanilla.

The results speak for themselves.

Undertaker, Hogan, Warrior and Nash all were bigger stars than Zayn, Owens and Bryan ever will be.

You're comparing Undertaker, Hogan, Warrior and Nash to Zayn, Owens and Bryan?

I don't know what Storms deal was, when it came to personality. Ever hear his podcast? The man is hilarious! If he was the same guy from the podcasts back when he was a full time worker, he would have been a multi time world champion. It's like he is way more relaxed.

Nash is the lowest drawing champion in history dude
That is a myth.

The WWF drew a profit in 1995. They didn't draw a profit in 1994 or 1996. By any metric there were worse WWF champions than Nash. Nash's drawing power peaked in WCW, where he was a bigger star than any of your indie darlings ever will be.

Well I think in pro wrestling, it's still crucial to have a good/captivating character. Not only in WWE.
That's how they tell a really good story when they actually have a match. Look at Orton, they made him sadistic again with the Hardy ear thing and people are eating it up.

90% of the characters are not good characters in the WWE, which is why the product is so boring. (Also the shit writers)

HA! good joke buddy, i don't like those vanilla ass midgets but you're FREE to think you're some cool underground wrestling fan by liking them lmao. Pathetic, I on the other hand like wrestlers people actually know and who are uh, in shape. But you can continue to enjoy ur rings of honor or whatever the FUCK it's called
