Agreed... Which is why the E shouldn't take people like Henry for granted and wait until the final 3-5 years of a career before showing their talent credit for the amount of blood sweat and tears they have put into the business. It's amazing to me when there are so many younger guys on a roster that people claim should have already won a belt 3 times, yet you have veterans who have put in the work to earn it, but they weren't given a legit shot until the candle was on the final inch of wick. As much as people bitch about WWE pushing the likes of Cena and others without allowing the youth to have their spot, there are many who deserve a final "dominant" run with a belt that have yet to have it... I would put Kane into this category, even though his reigns have been interesting.
Sure, Langston wasn't anywhere around 3-5 years ago so there was no one for Henry to give the torch; but the absence of a valid superstar at the right timing doesn't mean you give it to a superstar who isn't ready just yet, nor has proven himself a reliable commodity.
