A followup from the question about 3 wrestlers you thought would become big stars, but didn't: Who are 3 that you never thought would make it big, but did?
I never thought Bryan Danielson would progress past indie star, that's for sure. Definitely not multiple time World champion level. Ditto CM Punk, who I was first exposed to as Raven's flunky in 2003 TNA. And of course our poster boy, Hunter Hearst Helmsley, who seemed like a ceiling of Intercontinental champion midcard goofball and somehow managed to reinvent himself multiple times.
