What are some examples in wrestling not just in WWE but unanimously in the business as a whole were there moments where a booker was trying desperately to promote someone but something universally shitty happened and ruined any serious chance that wrestler could have had

Now before you start dart boarding the obvious examples like Roman Reigns and John Cena I was thinking more so stars that perfectly fit the narrative how either the audience notices he has something and they wanna see that wrestler develop or said wrestler is more so a passion project for one of the guys in back really hoping to get this person over.

A couple of examples are Bobby Lashley. One of the two times ever Vince actually paid attention to what was happening over at the Ohio Branch since he didn't get the record until later how much merch money Cena could sell at a theoretical level. The whole Bobby Lashley ordeal was the straw that led to Cornette quitting OVW much like how Heyman essentially quit on the ECW reboot after Lashley won the ECW Championship

Other examples include Cesaro. His moment was most likely the segment where he botched the "4 ropes. 4 sides" promo. There is Ryback who had his push killed by trying to show off also being a "sensitive" person when he's not in the ring and had segments of him promoting his shit self help book. A big example being Alex Riley and how Kevin Owens buried himself so hard into the core of the planet but there was no point in doing this since Kevin already gave Alex the shovel.

Kronik's leap to WWE was most certainly an attempt to get them over.

That one match they had with Undertaker and Kane killed that attempt so dead, WWE gave the Kronik music to Stevie Richards.

Undertaker was having a fucking field day just burying and hazing anyone who came and made their success from the WCW brand. Remember after that burial of the WCW Tag Team Championships (which wasn't hard since Nash and Hall essentially buried them before Taker really tore into how fucking worthless they were) Undertaker went and fucking shitcanned Dallas Page's push because Taker didn't wanna run an angle about his wife

That didn't stop the Kane x Matt Hardy x Edge shitshow from happening tho.

Alex Riley throughout his career in the WWE felt like his push was hijacked during the second season of NXT even when The Miz and John Cena couldn't put him over which was never the intention of doing so he felt he deserved to be put under the same monicker of worth of Daniel Bryan which was laughable

His belief in this came from how before any wrestler was transfer over for a Season of NXT they would have had to gone thru their hazing ritual thru FCW and Alex was essentially the world champion of FCW but his run is looked in regard as Bo Dallas's NXT Championship run

It also didn't help that even as a low card guy Alex was really fucking trash in the ring not even capable at a developmental level and Vince witnessed this and gave Alex the Corey Graves treatment and told him "I literally never wanna see you wrestle again...ever"

Alex HATED being a commentator especially a commentator for the brand he debuted in and after months of nonstop bitching Vince gave him one chance and gave him a pitful brief push where Kevin Owens absolutely proceeded to get babyface heat despite being the heel World Champion because its fucking laughable that you would look at someone of the monicker of Alex Riley and think he was anything other then a low card heel

Kevin took it a step further and instead of wishing Alex luck on his future endeavors after Vince shitcanned his contract Kevin told him the only job he would ever find is working at a Gas Station.

Taker was maximum asshole during that time it seems. There are plenty of stories that get swept under the rug as well. He fucked with Simon Dean which pisses me off the most. Simon Dean being Nova and a vet at that point. All he did was tell Piper his ideas for the Pipers Pit segment and Piper was okay with it. For some reason Undertaker decided it wasn't okay that Simon Dean was telling Piper his ideas and put his gear in the shower with the water on after kicking him out of the locker room. Simon was removed from television shortly after.

That is fucking shitty man.

The first story I heard of Taker fucking with someones career was Mike Awesome during the invasion (influenced the office that he couldn't work). Taker was a childhood favourite, but the subsequent shit I heard about him being a massive douchebag changed that, way before him overstaying his welcome erased memories of his prime.

Reminder that the 4 ropes flub was immediately followed by getting squashed by Wade Barrett like 3 minutes later. I can't imagine that was supposed to go anywhere

How do you think Cena reacted to this?

While he does anything asked to him, he must've deep down known how bullshit this was.

I will always be behind Cesaro, and I truly hope this Alesiter Black match/feud/whatever it ends up being is more than just the three-week build he's got until this point.

When the APA beat the shit out of Public Enemy on Sunday Night Heat or when The Ascension got buried by those legends because JBL took offense to a promo they cut saying like they're better than the Legion of Doom or something. JBL really likes burying wrestlers.

Not that he had any push to begin with, but Mike Knox getting Sweet Chin Music'd and eliminated at Survivor Series in about ten seconds, followed up by HBK very openly asking Triple H "Who was that?". Might as well have handed him his pink slip that night for how bad it tanked any future prospects of him being any kind of credible competitor or threat in WWECW.
