1 per round...
I gotta go with Kerry Von Erich. Yeah, he did GREAT for the promotion in TEXAS, and he had the classic fight wtih Flair. He was a "GREAT" in Texas, but on a grand scheme of things, he had just got his feet wet with Vince. The Texas Tornado came and beat Perfect in under a minute, blew it away for the I_C strap. Kerry Von Erich was on to major major things. You could tell the script would be easy to go along with him, i Mean for God Sake he was a legend in the longhorn st..
Go ahead with Eddie Guererro, he won a heavyweight strap for Vince "up north". Like I've stated, the Texas Tornado didn't have enough time unfortunately to blow the roof off.

Was he great? Sure, if you go by titles and merch moved.
But think about it.
Lazy. Vanished to go play softball on several occasions.
Imagine if he tried-
Bigger than Hogan
A magnatizm that STILL gets him work
Pretty injury-free (until he went off the top rope)
Pretty well-liked by Hogan, Flair and Dusty until he went to Germany

Sid was GREAT...
reason why they brought him back a couple weeks ago..
"ONE MAN BAND" ring a bell?
Sid has been the main event to WRestleMania TWICE.. against Hogan and against the Undetaker in Chi-town.
"ruler of the world"..
my next pick..
the only reason I'm saying he's not great, is because he's not in Vince's hall of fame..
the Ultimate Warrior.
Now talk about a sour puss. If the Ultimate Warrior wasn't so full of himself, and wouldn't have held out for financial reasons, he could've been the GREATEST ever, greater than Sid. Ultimate Warrior has his main event in Mania, but 1x to Sid's 2x.

Peach, Main-eventing Mania is not the bookmark of greatness. Bobby Lashley Main Evented
As did my second pick
Bam Bam Bigelow
Started before Vader, got a huge HUGE run at Survivor series
Had a monster look
Pretty good on the Mic
Yet- did squat in the WWF, even after the LT bout. Barely got a shot at the Macho Man for the IC strap.
Bam Bam looked awesome, didn't even need the smoking helmet.
To your guy, I'm not sure UW was all he could be and more. Sting was definately the better half of that duo.

yeah, Luna Vachon was quite scary.
Bam BAm was one of my favs.. He was a very athletic big man, I just wish he never fought in mma. He got JOBBED>
if you havn't seen it, try youtube. ________ search: BAM BAM MMA
anywho, for my last pick..
I think Vince screwed the guy with the "Model" gimmick.
He had a hell of a career in AWA, I believe.
Martel late in his career had classic battles with Booker T, in frkn WCW.
This guy put in time in the business.
There wasn't a flaw, but damn, he didn't reach the heavyweight title ranks in the big big promotions.
Rick Martel, broke up with strikeforce, then went mid-carder 4-life, all he need was a PUSH from the writers.

Hey Peachy, it would have been too funny had you picked Hulk Hogan as your third, your reasoning being he needed better hair.
Considering the current state of FN, you still got this easily enough.
Anywho, I don't think the Model had much more potential than he realized. Unless by untapped potential you mean "born in Newark"
As for my third. I'm just going with someone that was miscast by his trainer. Miswritten by multiple bookers and taken away from us too soon.
