"What am i implying with this title?" you may ask.
For all the "Smarks" out their who claim to understand WWE inside and out, some of the comments you make don't make sense.
As Al Snow said once:
“The most oxymoronic term out there is a ‘smart-mark’. Just doesn’t exist. Because how can you be smart at something – knowing somebody is lying to you, while actually believing the lie. It’s a term created by fans who believe they’re on the inside of something that they’re not really on the inside of. They’re not a part of the business because they don’t have a real stake in it.” Source SESscoops.com
The William Regals, Goldusts and Mark Henrys of the business are the guys who work their asses off for years and a Randy Orton comes by and becomes the youngest World Champion.
I don't love Randy Orton nor do I hate him, to me he is just there. In my eyes, he is a good worker but sometimes quite overrated by WWE and the IWC.
I say this because Mark Henry is someone who is constantly bashed all year round as being a slow sucker and more recently a waste of a draft pick, but continues to work his ass off to achieve the ultimate dream of becoming World Champion.
Just look at this video and see his emotions run wild: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GJf5hwVk4Q
When he talks, he talks about his weight. Tears drop from his eyes and he explains he's still intent on becoming a World Champion even at 39, soon to be 40 years old. Thats the dedication guys like Christian and Henry have. They still dare to dream on the pinnacle of pro wrestling success.
Randy Orton is an 8 time World Champion at 31 and John Cena a 10 time World Champion at 34 years of age.
From WWE television - John Cena is seen as a 5 trick pony as he regular does 5 moves, Cena can do much more (as Seen by his monkey flip on John Morrison). Cena can do moves but WWE doesn't want him to as kids are more likely to remember 5 moves rather than 1004.
Although many people on here and other websites bash John Cena 24/7 about it and its all because of what you see on television.
William Regal is always being said to be highly respect by the IWC so why is it he has 62677 twitter followers whereas Daneil Bryan has 101192 and The Miz with 235585 followers?
It's the power of what WWE showcases on tv.
William Regal is among the greatest Wrestlers never to hold a WWE World Title something that people who have abilities that aren't as good as Regal - people like Dolph Ziggler got a few minute run as World Champion in the books and even a triple crown champion.
If you follow the books - you would think Ziggler is a better performer than Regal ever was which is untrue in my view.
Ziggler is great but Regal has more of my respect and isn't in his prime can still keep up wiht the top dogs in the ring and on the mic.
Another 'Should Have' been World Champions in WWE is Carlito - the comments he gets on twitter are disgraceful.
"@carlitocolon u ever goona wrestle again?or ur new gig is to tweet and bitch?" Taken from a few days ago
another claims "@carlitocolon Ur wwe career really sucked. I think you should stick with ripping out carpets and doing plumbing:)"
The so called 'Smart Marks' or 'Smarks' think their in the inside of the industry but they are still being fooled on whats presented to them on television.
Randy Orton = Greatness
Cena = 5 trick pony
Mark Henry = Slow, old and boring man.
Carlito = WWE Reject and isn't on television.
People get these thoughts from whats on the television program they watch - Orton is seen as a 'Stone Cold II' and Cena with five moves.
Carlito is doing pretty good in Mexico and Puerto Rico but as many only see him in WWE eyes - they feel he is nothing.
The power of television of the 'Smarks' still continue.
****When I speak of the Smark marks, it's not everyone****
