I asked Tito if he did that. He said no.

Pre 1990 it seemed that very few adults over the age of 20 ever played any console games and they almost all looked down on it. It wasn't until maybe 1993 that I first met an adult past their mid 20s who was an active gamer.

This right here.  If WWE gives you your name, your gimmick, writes all of your lines for you, and books you to lose half of your matches, I'm not sure how anyone can blame the talent for much in the way of not being a mega star who transcends the business.  It probably matters less now than any other time who the individual talent happens to be.  They've set it up so they can just plug in a new guy and keep going.

Problem with this kind of thinking is that even if we believe all this, then why hasn't anybody else created any real star power outside of WWE ? Where are the breakout stars ?

Remember that NBA roasting of AEW's show & Jericho's fat ass from couple months ago ? That's what casual viewers think of today's wrestling presentation. An embarrassing joke

What other company has been in a position to do so?  AEW basically had a few months before Covid hit and everyone else is so minor league that no one would ever be able to catch fire to the level of Austin or Rock. TNA was a management disaster even beyond WWE and ROH at their best was never meant to be more than a niche player.
