    Alberto Del Rio was only headlining the biggest Mexican promotion for 10 years is all....

    Anyhoo, that term no longer exists the way it used to. There isn't a territory system anymore. You don't work your way through the territories until you make it to a major company.

    I want to add that with John Cena, Miz and Sheamus is that they have payed their dues, but not because they are fast learners. These three guys are incredibly hard working! At one point, the miz was appearing at shows he wasn't even scheduled at just to learn, something sheamus has been doing recently (Think it was Bret Hart that said this). Maybe there's more to it that that; Kaitlyn was a swimsuit model (or some kind of model anyways) so it's hypocritical for the divas to have heat with her when Kelly Kelly was actually found in the exact same way!

Then there are guys like Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio, Jack Swagger and Wade Barrette (not sure if I spelled his last name right) who clearly have not been around very long and yet they have already been champion or won the Royal Rumble or simply have had main event matches within months of first appearing on Raw and Smackdown. Talented and skilled they may be but what have they done to earn any of these things? There are plenty of talented and skilled men who have been around WWE for a while and yet are overlooked for newcomers like those I have mentioned. Does anyone really have to "pay their dues" anymore?
    Exactly. Paying your dues doesn't really exist in today's wrestling thats why i'm wondering why Kaitlyn is being called out for not paying her dues. I get that she got sign less than six months and is an inexperienced wrestler but she can get better in the future. As I recall it, Trish Stratus was an inexperienced wrestler when she debuted in WWE not to mention that most of the WWE Divas came from the Divas Search. This doesn't just go for Kaitlyn, this goes for guys like Cody Rhodes, Drew Macntyre, and Wade Barrett who people say that they got handed everything and didn't pay there dues but its not like they aren't getting better and better each and everyday so you can't blame the E for going all out with them . This term is a poor excuse sometimes.
