    Is JR right?

    On Talent Making Their Own Breaks: With all that said, I am a firm believer that talents largely make their own breaks especially today with no territories with which to pluck established, main eventers. How much one is willing to invest DAILY in one's career is the difference in getting to the Promised Land OR choosing to use their lack of effort and initiative to blame the business, the establishment, creative, etc for one's failure. Some who read this will disagree with my assessment, which is fine. Unlike many keyboard warriors on Twitter or those who become tough guys on internet message boards, success, no matter what field it may be, is largely dependent on the person who one sees daily in the mirror. That's simply my opinion.

    The argument I would have is this, when I look back at the WCW dvds. All I heard was how the only man in WCW to get a break was Goldberg. You hear talents say, if you arn't friends with the head man you wouldn't be able to make it there. JR was one of people who stated something similar to those statements on those WCW dvds. Is he trying to tell me the likes of Rey Mysterio, Jericho, Benoit, Malenko, Bret Hart, among others had poor effort? Was it truly their fault why they didn't get over? Hell, Mean Gene said it himself why WCW wanted him was because how over he was in other countries like Germany. Don't let us try to pretend either that WWE didn't do the same holding back great talent like Raven, DDP, among others jokes who were great in other organizations besides in the WWE.

    I don't have a problem with JR at all. My favorite announcer all-time is JR. I just wanted to hear others opinion while voicing my own.

    I believe JR is right. Nothing is handed to you as a wrestler you must make your own break. Sure there are those that got a head start but still they had to be able to do it. Wrestling fans will not take a forced package and no matter how big the initial push if a talent does not make their move on their own they will not be a top tier talent. No wrestling company truly hold back talent unless they keep them off tv. If a talent makes their move and connects with the fans they will be on TV and will go to bigger things. Wrestling is about money and if you can draw you will be on TV.

    On the one hand you have a member of the drive by IWC, who's specualting on what he think he knows happens or happened in these companies.

    On the other hand you have JR who has spent years in the business, working for different companies, in many different roles the majority of which were recruiting and developing talent.

    Yeah I think I know where my hat lies here.

    It's almost like JR is right and Wrong, I do think if someone is lazy and doesn't work on there carer they will fail and they can't get mad at others but surely there are many talents who worked so so hard but never got anywhere
    I wish I was sad and lonely enough to spam hate

    That's just a fact of life though. Lol. Someone can work hard but never really go anywhere, while another person can just be spoonfed everything.

    What he means by that is if you are happy enough with your position and don't try to improve yourself you won't go anywhere but the FE'd list.
