View Full Version : Is Drew McIntyre holding back his true potential?

Did anybody else notice the awesome top rope suplex that Drew McIntyre pulled out of his ass on Smackdown? He went up to the top rope with the speed of a Luchadore and suplexed the guy halfway across the ring. Maybe I am marking out, but it was pretty impressive for a man his size. It was definitely the highlight move of the week. Normally his matches are nothing special, but every now and then he does something that really makes me think he is holding back some of his in ring potential.

in the wwe, they control how much potential a wrestler has.

Yeah, I do not think WWE likes for heels to do many flashy moves. The crowd tends to cheer high risk stuff no matter if a heel or face does it.

and then you may notice the same tattoos on Chimaera, listen to his voice.

l think Ricardo Rodriguez is awesome, but just imagine if he was given the opportunity to wrestle in WWE as Chimaera when he wasn't Alberto's personal ring announcer.

Last nights match between mcinytire and Barrera was a really good match

I beleive he is quite capable of pulling off good matches IMO.
When he was intercontinental champ he had some really good matches with Kofi.

there probably going to give Drew some love story angle and maybe turn him face but I hope not.

Its the same situation as when TNA had Cheerleader Melissa and made her use the horrible gimmick of Raisha Saeed. They had an excellent performer who was being wasted as a mouthpiece.

I, however, don't mind that Ricardo Rodriguez is being used as a mouthpiece. Sure he is a capable performer, but small masked luchadors are a dime a dozen. A dime a million really. Ricardo Rodriguez is entertaining on the mic, and he plays one of the most effective managerial roles we have seen in a long time, so I'm cool with it.

Sorry. I hate Drew. I never liked him in FCW, don't like him now. Don't care about what everyone says, don't care if anyone likes my opinion. He sucks. Bleah.

WWE holds back his potential. They could use him to bring back some meaning to the U.S. and I.C. belts. Those titles seem like they are worthless anymore.

Drew McIntyre has potential in my opinion. He's already a former IC champ and tag champ (although the tag run with Cody was totally pointless IMO). He still has some way to go before he lives up to his 'Chosen One' tag-line, but I think he'll get there eventually.
