While I can see where you're coming from don't go overboard. It's not Lawler's fault he didn't get to wrestle his prime in a unified, global company putting on four televised shows per week, with virtually no competition, and with something as crazy as the internet on standby so fans of his could watch any of his matches whenever they wanted. It's true that Lawler was primarily as big draw in one territory out of dozens, and a decent one in others, but it's not like Bryan has done anything really all that special in WWE. He was such a poor champion that he wasn't even built up to be a legit obstacle for Sheamus at Mania, and lost the title in 18 seconds. He's yet to hit his wrestling prime. Lawler had his and he's got a HOF ring to show for it. Bryan's accomplishments at this moment in his career aren't enough to get him by Lawler.
