I have been thinking about this for a while, what gives that top that something extra special to make him the best?
Coz it can't be wrestleing ability as Hogan, Rock, Austin, Cena aren't exactly the best wrestlers in the world, and it can't be mic skills alone as Cena isn't the strongest in the world at this I always thought Brett Hart was a bit wooden on the mic and still is. I'm not sure the undertaker has ever been the "top guy" and the same goes for HBK and HHH always right up there but never led the company. Charisma the Rock and Hogan have it in spades but Austin never struck me as the most charismatic, so is it boiled down to the look and the gimmick as Austin and Cena seem to have that nailed on.
So now as a theory look at CM Punk, charisma? Yes, Mic skills? Yes, wrestleing ability? Yes, gimmick? I would say yeah probably, but will he ever be the "top guy"? No and I don't think he has what it takes and I don't know why?
Thoughts not on who will be the next guy but what it takes to become him?
