Acts that turned it around


Recommended Posts

Mick Foley went from being a darling with a segment of the fan base to a mainstream attraction in the late 90s in WWF. He'd always been a crazy bumper, but the Hell in a Cell bumps became iconic but I think the main reason he got super over was his character. He was great at getting the audience to root for him. His first retirement match was emotional as fuck especially.

I expect to be in the minority on this but I genuinely thought Prince Devitt/Finn Balor was the most uninteresting, overhyped in-ring worker of his generation until last year. I don't know what clicked for him, but he's settled brilliantly into the working ace role. Far cry from the vanilla dude that would blandly run through spot to spot, dropkick to double stomp.
