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.
