The Stryke Zone: The IWC. A non member's opinion

Now the IWC has become a important part of wrestling. However what started as a collection of everyone has slowly evolved into a group of hate mongers who will flame superstars and cream their pants over others. The IWC has become such a sentient life form it has taken the true meaning of IWC away.
The Internet Wrestling Community was original meant as anyone who talks about wrestling on the internet, DUH. But slowly the IWC became a collective of fans who became notorious with hating wrestlers, IE; Randy Orton, Kofi Kingston, Cena, etc. While praising others to no mercy like CM Punk, Zack Ryder, Dolph Ziggler, and Dean Ambrose.
Now I will admit I tend to go against the IWC when it comes to who they say are the best. Like take Dolph Ziggler for example. Do I think he is talented? Yes. Do I think he should be world champion? No. I see Dolph as the epitome of top mid carder. A 2013 Mr. Perfect. I could see him setting records as the US and IC champion.
Then there are wrestlers that the IWC will crap their pants over like Dean Ambrose. I personally can't see how anyone can like the man. I've seen him wrestle before the hype and he was god awful.
Now lately, with the arrival of El Generico into the depths of the WWE, the comments section has become a mad house of hate. While few specs of hope and understanding has bled through. it's quickly blocked by the hate of anything the WWE does with him.
First, they decided to unmask him and give him a new name. Saving Generico the trouble of trademarking his old name, allowing him to compete as El Generico if things don't work out. That's is genius on both WWE's and Rami end.
Think about it. What makes a gimmick get over? Is it the actual gimmick? No. It's the man behind it. If you gave the Millon Dollar Man's gimmick to say Hulk Hogan it wouldn't have worked. Ted Dibiase made that gimmick. And Rami Sebi has a chance to do the same with this Sammy Sane gimmick.
The man is clearly a talented wrestler and can have a talented career. But the IWC has to put aside their petty hatred and let the chance for something new grow. Don't bury it before you see it.
