Superstars That Had Potential Part 1
The WWE has had there chances pushing certain wrestlers and never got it, these wrestlers have had a great start but then left for dead.
These three people that I have selected are just a few of many that should have been put on the map and been World Champions if they were put to good use.
The charcter, person, skills, and many other things could have made this person so big in the wrestling world but never got that jump start.
The picture symbolies the biggest stage for wrestling Madison Square Garden and being the main event for a superstar that knows he has made it to the top.
Sean O' Haire
Sean O' Haire debuted in 2000, he was part of a tag team with Mark Jindrak as he and then came in the summer of June, these two came into there own when they won the WCW Tag-Team Championship in September for the first of three times.
O'Haire was named Rookie of the Year by Wrestling Observer, he had everything going for him as he was tearing up his way into WCW.
In 2001, Vince McMahon picked up the contract of Sean O'Haire and things were looking up for O'Haire going into the WWE.
He made his debut in June of 2001 in the WWE as he made an impact attacking the Hardy Boys with his partner.
O'Haire after the Invasion storyline was given a Devil's Advocate, O'Haire's dark persona included a long black trench coat he wore to the ring and his obsession with spiders gimmick I was very much interested in watching and growing and hopefully evolving into something bigger and better.
He beat names like Mr. America, Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit, and Rikishi., Sean was on a role in the summer of 2003 as Piper guiding him in the right direction.
Sean O'Haire after that summer cooled off as he was doing dark matches and those sort of things as the WWE never kept that push going for O'Haire.
In December, O'Haire was in a motorcycling accident and after rehab was released for the WWE in February of 2004.
O'Haire to me could be World Champion today with that same persona but it would have been more evolved today and he would to me be a top heel or a top face but the WWE used the full potential of a man like O'Haire and today O'Haire would say to the WWE like I'm saying now.
"I'm not telling you anything you don't already know".
The son of wrestling legend Stan "The Man" Stasiak looked to be in good shape as a wrestlers.
A man that was known as Meat in the WWE as a jobber started off his career in 1999. He won some matches but he was at jobber status. The WWE gave him one of the worst gimmicks in the WWE to begin with but he would be given the name.
He became the man in his debut match for Kurt Angle at Survivor Series in a lose to Kurt.
He would be a WCW Tag Team Champion with Chuck Palumbo three times as they would feud with number of teams.
WCW was bought out by Vince McMahon and his contract was picked up and was making his return to WWE.
He made his return to the WWE in 2001, Stasiak would come back as he was in his own state of mind and thought out to be crazy and looney. He manged to win the Hardcore Championship sixteen times though.
He never got the proper push as he was used as someone to laugh at and that's not what you do with the son of a legend.
It's amazing how Randy Orton father was not that big but now Orton is bigger than his father ever would be but a man like Stan was the fifth WWE Champion and you make him the laughing stock of wrestling. He deserved a better push and a normal gimmick and he would have gotten out there and known with a push.
He was let go and then semi-retired in 2002, he worked into business but now is pursing wrestling again and is now leaner and smarter then he was back then and is looking for a WWE return or a arrival into TNA.
The man that loved speed had it all with the gimmick that he had a lot of put into. The love for bikes turned into the gimmick of going fast type biker gimmick and that finisher "Full Throttle" was good.
He came out with his promos about coming back and going fast and made his return as a face but turned into a heel but had the IT factor when he was a heel, he should have been facing people other than Noble and he would had been taking seriously but never was.
I liked Palumbo and he needed the extra push to be taken seriously and never did even though his previous gimmick with Billy Gunn worked some how as he won WWE Tag Team Championship with him and won four with Stasiak and O'Haire.
This was a guy that could have been a WWE or World Champion.
It is a shame that he got released in November of 2008 and hope if he doesn't come back to the WWE he will go to TNA.
Can you think of any?
Can you think of any that could have had the same potential as the three I picked out here.
