The Undertaker Vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin
WWE Backlash - April 21st, 2002
The perfect beginning to a great match between two of the toughest bastards in the WWE.
Yes. I fully believe in that, and I wish that more superstars would take the initiative needed to become that guy rather than work hard and hope people notice. Shawn Michaels is a perfect example of this. In Shawn’s book, he talks about how he worked his ass off every week to be the best guy on the roster, and when no one took notice, he walked past everyone into Vince McMahon’s office and said “Hey, I’m your top guy and you know it.” The rest, as they say, is history.
It’s literally the only reason why certain guys have been in the WWE for as long as they have and have never gotten that shot. Especially when guys like Sheamus debut and within 6 months, become the WWE Champion. Granted, Sheamus is a great performer, but you always hear about guys like Billy Gunn and Hardcore Holly who DIDN’T take the steps to be THE guy. It’s easy for anyone to say “Oh, Sheamus had Triple H on his side.” Yeah. Triple H saw something in the man and helped make him a champion. Triple H also helped guys like CM Punk along the way, and has brought some of the best of the indies into the WWE.
I digress. The point is, no one on Earth is going to notice a single damned thing you do until you say “Hey, stop doing that and watch me. I won’t disappoint.” “Greed” has nothing to do with it. People need to take PRIDE in their work.
The Rock works out at public gyms and screams ”FOCUS” when people stare at him to keep them focused on their workout instead of him.
