The title sounds silly but JBL really was a great gem in a time that WWE really needed it. He was a tag team specialist who came from out of nowhere to become a very successful champion at age 38. McMahon even asked the guy to come out of retirement due to a bad back to work a storyline with HBK. When all the stars left, JBL was there to pick up the pieces and ultimately introduce the world to John Cena. Transitioning to Rollins or Reigns could have been a lot smoother had WWE injected a silver tongue into the lead guy role. Wade (Bad News) Barrett would have been perfect even as far back as 2013 when they chose Orton instead. Question is: How better off would WWE be if they hot-shotted a guy like Barrett to the top and kept him there like they did with JBL? Maybe there is another guy you have mind.
