I thought Landell was mediocre. Never seemed to have what it took to be a top guy.

Could be decent in the right spot but was too "southern" to have national appeal, IMO (and I am a Southern boy).

NEVER seemed to get that the Nature Boy gimmick Flair and Rogers was supposed to be a superior talent, silver spoon in his mouth, aristocratic type that had real athletic talent and should be able to beat anyone. Landell came across as a "poor" boy trying to act like the aristocratic heel, but having neither the talent, nor the aristocratic background to pull it off. Basically he seemed like a parody.
