WWE Under A Microscope: A Unique Look At the Traits that Make A Main Event Superstar

Traits of A Star

A WWE Superstar is always under the microscope. They are critiqued and analyzed constantly by members of management and fans alike. Do they have the potential to main event one day, or will they just be a mid-card or lower card wrestler for their entire career?

Many aspects of the wrestler goes into deciding the status that will define them. So today, I will take a unique look into the traits a superstar must have before reaching the top of the card. With each trait, a superstar from the past or present that proved to have that trait in abundance will be highlighted.

About Ryan Frye

Wrestling is real, people are fake.I enjoy messing with people's emotions, and that's what writing and wrestling are both about. So why would I stop? It's way too fun.
  • Brett Chandler

    I’ll leave a larger comment when Disqus works, but for now, great stuff.

    • Ryan Frye

      Could be positive, could be negative…. I don’t know. Thanks anyhow.

      • Jacob Waring

        It’s good, definitely up there in-terms of your great articles. Just feels like I’ve seen you write on this in the past, or something.

        • Ryan Frye

          I haven’t. It’s similar to some stuff I’ve done that people liked, but I haven’t written on this exact topic.

  • Ryan Frye

    Sorry for all the changes made to the look of this article. Encountered many problems in the editing of the headlines and transformation into a slideshow. It’s finally good now though.

  • Billy Weber

    really amazing article

    • Ryan Frye

      Thanks Billy.

  • Shayan

  • Eric

    really really enjoyed this article. The black and white pics were a nice touch

    • Ryan Frye

      Thanks Eric.

      I didn’t want to use the same people twice and really the only other candidate that entered my mind for mic work was Roddy Piper, but I opted to go with Foley. Honestly, it was probably biased since I’ve watched more Foley than Piper, but hey…

  • Randy

    Wow. Great job with this Ryan. I can’t disagree on anything you wrote here, and all I can say is this: It is rare these days that you find a wrestler with all of these traits.

    • Ryan Frye

      Yeah, it is. Cena is one of those guys though, and that’s why he’s at where he’s at. Thanks Randy.

    “His smile is enough to melt you”

    Looks like we found the one guy Ryan loves more than Kofi Kingston…. But for real, great article, & it’s a 2013 Wrestle Enigma Article of the Year candidate hahaha. The black & white pics was a nice added touch too.

    • Ryan Frye

      I actually got that from Selena Gomez on the Once in a Lifetime special WWE did for Rock/Cena haha. Won’t even lie.

      Thanks Chalie.

  • Louie_Babcock

    Talk about a perfect formula, man you hit all the traits on the head and if the world ever sees a wrestler that has all this in one package it will be incredible. Great article. You are on pace to win that $100 bounty :)

    • Ryan Frye

      Thanks Lou. That’s my goal.

  • SiD
