Look: 4.5 (very shrimpy guys, but the outfits and facepaint look cool)
Skill: 6 (athletic jump-y guys. The should do more high-flying)
Charisma: 5 (they can only barely get the crowd into their chants. it doesn't help that they never speak otherwise)
Overall: 15.5 (basically average)
-I really don't care about these guys. No personality to them, they just yell and jump around, and they do highspots that aren't even up to the level of WCW's Cruiserweights. Yet now the tag division is so shitty that they're the default champions. Blech.
Look: 4 (looks like a straight-up pussy next to the entire roster. Apparently he's good-looking, though)
Skill: 5.5 (okay-ish. I've heard he had some good stuff, but I've never seen it)
Charisma: 7 (easily the most punch-able face on the roster, which is something. Just gives off a wave of smarmy, needless cockiness. I've never seen an even passable promo from the guy, though)
Overall: 16.5 (I don't see it with him)
-He'll go down in history as the worst Main Eventer in WrestleMania history, unless they eventually do something EVENT STUPIDER than Miz/Cena. It's too bad, because he's hardly AWFUL, he's just nothing special in the ring, and not as charismatic as someone in his position should have been. I actually see him as a very Honky Tonk Man-ish guy, who looks like a pussy and acts tougher than he is, which is a perfectly-acceptable wrestling character. But Main Eventer? No way- he has nowhere near the credibility.
BAD NEWS BARRETT
Look: 8 (actually way bigger than I initially thought)
Skill: 5.5 (does okay. Big brawler. His finisher stinks)
Charisma: 7 (actually got his stupid gimmick over in an entertaining manner)
Overall: 20.5 (actually higher than I thought)
-He seems like a classic IC-level guy from the old days. I don't see him ever Main Eventing again, but he'll be okay for the Sheamus level.
Look: 4 (looks like a scrawny pussy next to actual wrestlers, but is pretty and has an interesting look as Stardust)
Skill: 7 (very fast and smooth as a worker, but he never really BRINGS IT on a big level)
Charisma: 7 (got the potentially career-ruining turn as Stardust over before the company fucked him)
Overall: 18 (quite decent)
-I see Cody peaking at IC level, but there's nothing wrong with that. Given his ability to get some AWFUL angles over, I see him getting over even with stuff meant as archaic PUNISHMENTS. Which is a big compliment, actually- Cesaro couldn't do it.
LooK: 7.5 (odd- he's stocky as FUCK, and anyone who knows anything about real combat knows he'd be a monster in a real fight, but his physique and size are unimpressive, so he's lower than a Monster Heel should be)
Skill: 7 (a very good Umaga-style brawler)
Charisma: 4 (Incomplete. Has a "Talker", which is good for him)
Overall: 18.5 (a Monster Heel with an unknown upside, I can see him Main Eventing)
-They keep fucking with this guy- he should be TEARING through the roster, raping guys left and right. And yet they make him wrestle competitive matches against losers constantly, and he often loses by DQ. I have no idea what his peak could be, but he'll probably settle into IC-level after LOLCENAWINS.
Look: 5.5 (tall and lanky like Edge was, but not as good-looking. And OH MY GOD THAT FUCKING PURSE-LIPPED FACE I WANT TO KICK HIM IN THE TEETH)
Skill: 4 (has shown basically nothing. Utterly tanked in the ring)
Charisma: 4.5 (took what was a big hit on a small show and bombed with it live, and came off unlikeable and overly-effeminate for a babyface on live TV)
Overall: 14 (below-average)
-What a disaster this yutz turned out to be. Bad in the ring, bad on the mic, and with an Indie-level gimmick that failed to get over in a big show. Just a giant failure, and he's already basically been buried.
Look: 8 (muscular, handsome and strong- what hairy bald guys like me aspire to look like)
Skill: 8.5 (got over purely on in-ring work- he was probably even better in the less-held-back Ring of Honor, but I've not seen it. If left to go all-out Main Event Style, he could easily be a 9.5 or a 10)
Charisma: 3 (shitty English skills, and needs to get over with awesome moves and timing)
Overall: 19.5 (if he learned to talk, or got his mouthpiece back, he could be Main Eventing in a week)
-Possibly the most-disappointing part of last year, even compared to Bryan's getting injured. This just took the wind RIGHT the fuck out of my sails- Cesaro was READY, got Heyman with him, and could have been Main Eventing... but instead they de-pushed him for no fucking reason and ensured he wouldn't get over all year. They took away his most-over offense and had him lose constantly. Why even bother watching the program if someone like Cesaro isn't let hit his peak?
Look: 7 (bulky and chubby, but kinda scary-looking. Without the whole "Bearded psycho" look he'd be lower)
Skill: 6.5 (he looked like shit in enough matches that many fans were just assuming he was a poor worker, but has showed a few more things lately. Tough to assess, as they've deliberately kept him out of the ring)
Charisma: 8 (he lacks the "big promos", but like everyone's said, when he talks, people listen. A bit too... "I'm just gonna keep saying vague stuff so you'll think I'm more deep than I am")
-A Cesaro-level disappointment from last year. Though it's odd- he was legitimately pushed to the top against guys like Bryan & Cena, and often beat them. But the never-ending push of Cena eventually winning just cut his balls off, especially after he followed it with a weak feud against Jericho. And it got WORSE as his promos just became same-old same-old rambling stuff. His act is getting tired, and that's gonna be a disaster for a guy who needs them to stay over.
Look: 8.5 (no physique, but big and distinctive)
Skill: 4 (standard Big Plodding Brawler, but a good bit faster and more sell-happy than most)
Charisma: 5 (just stands there most of the time, but is getting over)
-An unknown upside, but actually got over pretty well on his own as a Weird Babyface. Who knows?
Look: 8 (looks as crazy as anyone with the big beard, and he's a good-sized dude)
Skill: 7 (actually looks the best out of his team- he had a few good singles matches a while back)
Charisma: 6 (intense and creepy)
-Actually, of the whole stable, Luke could end up having the biggest upside if he becomes a better talker. He has a distinctive look, good size, and he's the best of the stable in the ring. A few more killer moves and he could be sub-Main Event level in a second.
