    I was thinking about this in the Randy Savage thread. Guys like Hogan, Savage, The Rock, Flair, and Austin truly transcend wrestling. They are guys that someone who has never seen a wrestling match in their life but know those gentleman. Everyone knows the "ohh yeah!," "If ya smell," "Woooo!," etc. You have a generation of people regardless of race that grew up in the 80's and 90's and know them.

    Is there someone on the roster presently that can become a pop culture icon outside of wrestling? I'm not talking about a guy that makes an appearance in a straight to dvd flick but someone who has never seen a Raw or Smackdown but know about them.

    I don't know if we're counting these guys but:

    1. Lesnar
    2. Cena



    Outside that, I doubt it. There aren't any characters/gimmicks that are must-see TV on some "God damn I gotta see what this breh about to do next! :damn: :gladbron: AYYY MA! COME LOOK AT THE TV! :damn: "

    With the right character maybe Roman Reigns.

    He looks like a star brother!

    I don't think Vince wants anyone getting to that level again. Rock, Hogan... those guys had leverage on him.

    Even if there is someone like that on the current roster, we would never know. They won't be given the chance.

    I don't think they are even letting anyone have a chance to even show if they could or not.

    Cena

    And they're definitely not giving anyone a chance, whens the last time someone had a catch phrase?

    I could see Big E or Xavier in a big budget comedy movie

    Now that Nakamura is in America it could be him if promoted properly

    Should have been Ambrose, I could easily imagine him popping up randomly on Adult Swim or MTV shows but his booking since the Shield split has been questionable

    In order to do so you gotta have something to catch people's attention.

    Punk did with the pipebomb. Bryan did with the yes chants.

    Nakamura has so much charisma that he can do anything, not sure about his mic skills.

    If Roman had the Uso that's married to Naomi's natural charisma I'd say him.



    There's truth to this. Even Batista lights them up every chance he gets because he doesn't need the WWE
