Unfortunately the poor guy never really had a chance. He was incredibly gifted in the ring, and I remember getting really excited when he had those early matched with HHH. But he was horrible on microphone and that natural charisma is something you just can`t teach. Another reason that may or may be the reason he never got to touch the brass ring was that he was black. A friend of mine pointed out that Black WWE wrestlers are doomed to stay in the mid card.
I was quick to point out Booker T and The Rock and he retorted that Booker established his name in another company and The Rock was WWF royalty (Not to mention a great in ring performer and virtuoso on the mic). He then pointed out that nearly every other black performer was a stereotype that the WWE`s largely white audience would feel comfortable with.
That aside, I don`t think Shelton has the presence or charisma to sell out arenas. Thats too bad considering a good Shelton Benjamin match is just as exciting as anything his more successful counterparts can put on.
i agree with the black thing look at cryme tyme a bunch of thugs that got nowere Mark henry is a joke elijah burke was a joke mvp is mid carder for life R-truth is a joke a nd i can go on for days
In an old van with no windows, passing out free candy.
actually he was and still is a great role model and great wrestler. ( you never heard a bad story about the guy) I think he finished Law school too so if rasslin doesn't pan out he at least wont be working at the nearest gas station or stealing pills from his neighbors.
