D'Lo Brown's career

  1. D'Lo had a great run for a while in the WWE. He was the Eurocontinental Champ at one point and was pretty over with the crowd. Then tragedy struck and Droz was paralyzed during a sky high power bomb. After that incident D'Lo was, and quite understandably so, never the same. He was young, talented, and over. He seemed to have great potential and was a lot of fun to watch. My question is, if the Droz incident never occurred, do you think he could have been a main event player? Or do you think that he was a mid-carder at best who just caught a bad break, and wouldn't have amounted to anything anyway?

    Forgive me if this is in the wrong section. I'm writing about a TNA employee's WWE career, didn't quite know where to put it.
  2. A mid-carder for life. Which isn't an insult or anything, as the grand majority of guys who come through in every era would end up being mid-carders, even if they have potential to rise to the top. There's only so much room at the top, and that's pretty much why D'Lo never would have broke through. With Austin, Rock, Triple H, Foley, Undertaker, etc., there really isn't much room for D'Lo Brown to break through and become a big player in the main event scene. Keep in mind that some people were complaining about D'Lo being somewhat stiff and clumsy in the ring even before the Droz incident. That probably made the Droz accident that much worse for his career.

    D'Lo might have also pissed off the brass by bragging about going to WCW (and getting that big Turner ironclad contract) only when he realized he had a year left on his WWE contract. Oops. (That's what I read anyway. I think it's quite funny.)
  3. He's the VP of Devon, Brisco, Bischoff, DOC, Anderson and Knoxx!
  4. I always digged the guy, personally. I don't know if he could have been a main event staple or the main guy, but he could have been a lot more than he was.

    I think the fact that the lead guys and the lead guys that followed were going to be in the spotlight if d-lo rose to the top or not, and they would have overshadowed him anyway.

    I just enjoyed the hell out of his theme song and his head shake.
