    Drew Mcintyre and John Morrison

    Ok other than MITB at WM 26 I have not seen anything of Mcintyre and just heard of him because I have not gotten to sit down and watch wrestling in a while. So far from what I have seen he has the look, the mic skills and a cool finisher but nothing special about him in the ring. I was also watching his feud with John Morrison and Morrison did some great promos in this feud and I was confused cause I see on this forum you guys say he has no mic skills. So can you guys give me links to when Mcintyre had any outstanding matches?

    McIntyre hasn't had outstanding matches, and he still has a lot to prove but to me he's been pretty decent. Plus very capable on the mic and carrying himself like a pro.

    As for Morrison cutting great promos..........

    Well I thought the one he was making fun of Mcintyre in the scottish outfit was good and their face backstage was great. Not saying he is Chris Jericho or anything but people made it if he was really bad

    I actually think he's capable of being decent, as I loved his work with the Miz and even when he did the dirt sheet with the Miz during their feud, I enjoyed him.

    But in general he seems awkward and uncomfortable as a face and he needs to be the better than you dickhead who is a bit outlandish as that is what he's best at.

    Mcintyre has everything but the it factor and without it he's reach as far as he's gonna get.

    Morrison is literially the least charismatic man in wrestling history. He makes Dean Malenko seem like Stone Cold in comparison.

    If both of them died in a car crash today I wouldnt care one bit and they would be missed for about 2 weeks before everyone forgot about them. Thats how important they are.

    Re: Drew Mcintyre and John Morrison

    I love John Morrison. He has the look and the wrestling ability, but he doesn't seem passionate or true-to-himself as the face character. Much better as the cocky heel. Right now he's like a robot who performs textbook moves but when he's a bad guy there's a bit of flavor to the dish.

    If HBK weren't retiring this year and they opted away from the Undertaker rematch, I would have loved to see a heel turn from Morrison resulting in heel Morrison vs. face HBK at Wrestlemania. I think it could have been a fantastic match with great build as a "passing of the torch."

    Every time I see someone compare Morrison to HBK I die a little inside.

    Passing the torch implies being the next.

    Because when Hogan was supposed to pass the torch to Bret, clearly they wanted Hart to be the next Hulk Hogan.

    You can't pass the torch to someone that can't draw a crowd reaction.

    I don't think I had intended to make any such comparison. However, I do think Morrison being incredibly athletic and 'the Shaman of Sexy' does draw its similarities to Michaels being incredibly athletic and 'the Sexy Boy.' Add to that they both got their start in tag teams. Marty Jannetty comparison incoming: I know Mercury is back, but he could be seen as the Marty Jannetty of MNM. Morrison went on to team with The Miz and since then both have feuded and also broke out on their own as stars a la Shawn Michaels and Diesel.

    There's enough to make the comparison, but I'm not saying anyone should. I just would have loved to see a program between the two wrestlers before Shawn (my favorite of all time) hung up the boots.

    Re: Drew Mcintyre and John Morrison

    Morrison broke out as a star? I must have missed that. Considering he hasn't been relevant in months and nobody cheers him. And being athletic means nothing if you can't work the fans.

    Yeah he had a little match with Rey Mysterio not too long ago that he won. Got some shiny piece of metal for it or something.

    Pretty sure like him or not (and I don't) Morrison was getting pretty damn over during the summer/fall of last year.

    Needs a solid heel run and a feud with top guys. The Rumble could have made Morrison a top star and that's what I thought they dropped his I-C belt for but then Edge came back to play a boring "face." What a shame.

    I'd love to see a program where he compares himself to HBK and says he'll do what HBK couldn't - end the streak! Doesn't even have to go to Wrestlemania, just pissing everyone off by saying that and earning the ire of the Undertaker would be a starmaking heel run.

    He definitely needs a heel turn, or just a character change. The smiles, the forced face lines, it just doesn't fit him.

    So? Being a star means you have fans. Morrison doesn't draw crowd reactions. Other than a 2 second mild pop that completely dies right after. And everyone falls asleep during his matches.
