Ryback if anything he is the next Goldberg, this man can go in the ring much like Goldberg did, both men being really intense in the ring, both men just physical and downright rugged, Ryback if he is built up right, could be the next Goldberg

Click for Spoiler:


Please just take off your nostalgia goggles.

I wish people would stop this whole comparing nonsense; you should judge today's wrestlers for who they are, and not who they're like.

If you rely too much on building up a superstar in your head as 'the next x', you'll get that idea stuck and end up being disappointed because Ryback didn't get 173 consecutive wins, or Sheamus doesn't win 10 world titles, or John Morrison doesn't get a 5 star match rating. (And honestly, that one was ridiculous, Morrison isn't fit to even clean HBK's drains).

Think of it this way, when Shawn Michaels, Curt Hennig, Rocky Maivia or Bret Hart debuted, were they being touted as 'the next so-and-so', or being compared to someone from the past?

I agree with Diet Soda. If you look at Stunning Steve's Debut in WCW, nobody would bet a penny that he'd be the face of the WWF's Attitude Era. Same with guys like Rocky Mavia, Cena in his chain gang days, Hunter Hearst Helmsley, etc. I'm sure people who watched these guys debut would never expect them to become who they are now.
Nothing gets me more mad than when people say that guys like Punk, Bryan, Ziggler, etc will never be what to Austin, Bret, Shawn, etc are now.

If I compared a rising Austin to Bruno Sammartino in the early 90's I'd prob get ripped apart.

If people wan't to compare a legend to a rising star, let them be, but to degrade a current star to a wrestler who's had his legacy made is crazy.

BTW, a comparison I see is Bob Backlund with Daniel Bryan. Both similar in stature and great technical wrestlers.

I see the same thing with HHH and Roode. Also, Flair managing Roode isn't that bad of an idea... but Roode may be better off alone.

I dont know whether Im the only one to think this but to me Daniel Bryan resembles more a kurt angle than a benoit.

1) He's got the chant. Angle had "you suck!", DBD has the emerging "YES!" chant which could be as big as angle's chant.

2) As a heel they're both characters which act better than everyone else but will take any win on offer. All the while berating their achievements constantly.

3) The most obvious, they're both incredible technical wrestlers. Im not gonna say DBD is better than angle was, but he isnt that far off imo. He is a great great technician between the ropes.

Personally an all RoH stable with the KoW when they come up, where he mentors them all the while main eventing, a sort of team angle but not as obvious, more along the lines of legacy without the twisted nature of legacy. That would be my pick.

Oh and roode for me is evolutions HHH, i totally agree with whoever said that.

Cena to me is a hogan rather than a rock type, he's the company man, just like hogan was.

The Miz also draws comparisons not just to Chris Jericho but also draws comparisons to HBK and The Rock even but Miz out of those 3 wrestlers he reminds me the most of The Rock

Cena - the Orginal Sting, just not as technical
Punk - Bret Hart; talking about pipe bomb after what he said and did to VKM after the screw job
Ziggler - Mr. Perfect (maybe a little Rick Rude aswell)
the Miz - Jericho; gimmick wise only
Orton - Jake the Snake Roberts
D. Bryan - BoB Backlund; the look to the wrestling ability and skills
B. Clay - Rakishi (also could go with Big Daddy V a little)
Alberto - Tito Santana
W. Barrett - William Regal; by the way they wrestle w/ a brawl style)
Cody - Kevin Von Erich
Santino - Jim Dugan

Cena actually reminds me more or less like The Rock in terms of both of them being mega stars inside and outside the ring, both having catchphrases, both being popular with merchandise and what not, and both of them do movies, so it's not that far of a stretch

Punk reminds me a lot like Bret Hart but also reminds me more or less like Stone Cold Steve Austin in terms of both men not caring about authority, standing up to authority like how Stone Cold did to Vince like how Punk is doing with Johnny Funkman Laurinaitis, both of them anti-heroes, makes perfect sense especially after Punk's pipe bombs and his shoot promo

Ziggler reminds me a lot like Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig in terms of having the beach blonde hair, blue eyes to match as well as the cockiness, the arrogance, and the all around wrestling ability but also everything Ziggler does in the ring is perfection much like how Hennig was, but Ziggler in other senses reminds me a lot like Rick Rude mixed in with HBK sort of

The Miz reminds me a lot like Jericho too, so I am glad we have that in common

Bryan actually reminds me a lot more like Bob Backlund but also reminds me a lot like Bret Hart when Bret turned heel

Brodus Clay has the potential to become the next Big Show but also reminds me a lot like Rikishi too

Del Rio is like a Mexican version of JBL mixed in with Tito Santana

Barrett reminds me a lot like Regal too, so glad we have that in common

Cody Rhodes more or less reminds me a lot like a young Randy Orton

Christian in a sense he reminds me a lot like Roddy Piper somewhat, I can't quite put my finger on it, but also reminds me of Edge too in some ways

Santino is like Hacksaw Jim Duggan mixed in with the Bushwhackers
