Ryder was in a match (I think with Tommy Dreamer) on Superstars and I thought: Why the hell is this guy only on Superstars? He had a great gimmick, a great energy and charisma, and was ACTUALLY TALENTED in the ring. Likewise for the other two. CM Punk was heel at the time, and was playing top dog on SmackDown! after Jeff Hardy left (maybe it was 4 years ago...damn I'm old). He was starting to get over and become a face or at least tweener. The main event featured Morrison vs. Punk, and that Milwaukee crowd knows their shit. I can say this because they ALL chanted for Morrison to win because they knew that Punk was already on his way up as a heel. Morrison surprisingly, and to the fans' delight, pulled out the victory against the then champ. All of them were able to wrestle, but they had the charm/charisma to go along with that in ring ability. Too bad Morrison gave it up.
