Which WWE star of today can make it in 1989 - 1997 WWF?
 
Do you see the following WWE stars make it in the WWE 1989-97?

AJ Styles
Bailey
Charlotte
Rusev and Lana
New Day
Kevin Owens
Sasha Banks
Alexa Bliss
Roman Reigns
Dean Ambrose
Seth Rollins
Finn Balor
Samoa Joe
The Miz and Maryse
American Alpha
Bray Wyatt
Becky Lynch
Nia Jax
The Shining Stars
Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson
Braun Strowman
Sami Zayn

Imagine how they can fit in the company in that timeline.

Sure. Besides Bray Wyatt, they'd all have made great jobbers..

Idk I could see Seth Rollins and AJ Styles battle for the WWF World or Intercontinental titles say 1993.

From that group, remenbering how the wwe was during that period, I see roman reigns would have been a huge star durig that period, he has the look and the character tjat was really huge back in those days.

Bray wyatt would have been a huge heel also because he could have live the gimmick alot more and keep keyfabe a lot easier then today.

Outside of that, maybe strowman because of his size, but the rest of them would have been jobber or on the lower mid card back in the day because it was the land of the big guys during that period and the mentality was to feed small guys to those big guys to make them look impressive.

As for the girls, they wouldn't even have been employed by wwe because back then, wwe didn't cares about woen wrestling because at that time, women wrestling was still considered like a special attraction

Then Dolph Ziggler would be jobbed to anyone in that era or end up in WCW.

Orton would have been a monster heel. His style is perfect for that time period, against guys like Bret Hart, HBK, Austin, etc.

I think most of them could've gotten over to some extent, just not in the same way.

Few of them would as the AE basically shaped them... you're talking one or two tops.

Finn Balor would have been a WCW Cruiserweight who crossed over, like Rey... but the body paint probably wouldn't have been available then or prohibitive to do, taking away his big appeal in that era.

The one guy who would have gone over huge would have been Wyatt - in TV14 they could have gone more into the Manson-esque aspects of his cult... probably had someone like Daffney or Lita as his Linda Kasabian type. You could imagine him writing things in opponents blood etc...

The new day would have endedup as part of the nation but there gimmick reminds me of the new generation...

They also would have been managed by sunny at some point...

I think a less-creepy Bray Wyatt could have made it just fine in that era. There were lots of characters in that day who didn't fit the big-guy mold. Bossman, Earthquake, Hillbilly Jim, Hacksaw, etc etc.

I think he would have been right at home, just with the creepiness dialed way back. That era wasn't ready for all that.
