I remember Bret Hart mentioning that there was a wrestler named Tom Magee that the WWF was building up to be it's next star but it didn't work out because of his lack of wrestling skills.

I just found this match on youtube were Tom Magee takes on veteran Terry Gibbs and although you can see Magee is green, it wasn't the worst I've seen.  The guy definitely had the look, build and athleticism to be a star; he just didn't have the experience and wrestling ability.  I think the WWF should have been able to make him a star even if he couldn't wrestle. 

Bret Hart said that they thought Magee was a star because Hart made him look good in his match with him.  The thing is, hasn't that been done since the beginning of time?  The idea is to create the illusion that this person is a larger than life character.  When you have someone with the look and athleticism of a Scott Magee you should be able to capitalize on it because after all, it is sports entertainment.  Here's the match:

In that match he was wrestling in All Japan which is not a league for someone who's just starting out.  I bet the Ultimate Warrior or Goldberg would probably have just as bad as a match if they wrestled there early in their careers.  I've seen matches early in The Ultimate Warrior's career that were easily just as bad but look how successful he turned out.

Tom Magee was someone who needed to be carried but did prove that he can be carried by a more experienced opponent.  His match with Terry Gibbs was pretty good and was actually entertaining.  If he just stuck with the basics and threw in an occasional acrobatic move (like he did with Terry Gibbs) I think he would've been very marketable.

I know it's a typo but lets not confuse Scott McGhee with Tom Magee.  Scott was an amazing wrestler, Tom Magee was not.  I agree though that Magee had potentially.  If Jim Helwig made it, he certainly could have.

He actually looked no worse than Lex Luger as a rookie in Florida in this match.  He was very stiff looking, no fluidity at all.  But it's amazing that with the look and size, that they didn't try to make *something* out of him, somewhere.  He must have really not given a shit or pissed somebody off.
