Shelton Benjamin coming back would be awesome. Give him a manager and make him an upper midcarder. Would be awesome.
Why would it be awesome? The guy is great in the ring, but he has the charisma of a potato sack. He is boring as HELLLLLLLLLLL! Great wrestler, but boring character. I never understood why people liked him so much.
Because hes a great wrestler! Give him a manager and put him in the upper midcard.
Honest question here: Did you like Chris Benoit?
Honestly, I have always thought he was boring as hell. Great wrestler, but the character couldn't generate any emotions out of me. That's the way I feel about Benjamin and I think he is twice the charisma black hole Benoit was.
Oh, I don't "hate" or even "dislike" guys like Benoit or Benjamin, they serve their purpose. But to me, these guys are easily replacable, they don't bring anything unique to the show. I can't get excited for the return of a guy that outside of good matches, gives us nothing. There are a multitude of wrestlers that can do that. Maybe not at that level, I do agree, but they aren't "awesome".
I don't like body builders without charisma like Bobby Lashley for the exact same reasons. He is a physical freak, but he has the charisma of a banana peel. I need to be emotionally involved with the characters to trully appreciate them. I love guys like Sandow, Punk and Ziggler because they bring a complete package. I also like Ambrose (don't know what to think about Reigns and Rollins yet). But I can't get emotionally involved with guys that have no charisma at all, even if they are good wrestlers.
Like I said, they serve their purpose, they can elevate other talent, but I don't think they are "awesome". At best, they make others look better and that's about it.
