that's the thing, he's not just a WWE guy. he was an NCAA DIV I HW wrestling champ long before. the WWE offered him 250,000 dollars and that was more than he could make coaching wrestling, so he took it. i believe his exact words were, "i didn't have a pot to piss in."
he still has a lot of work but with wrestling as his base, he can dominate (as long as he stays away from Fedor)
while he fine tunes other areas. just as Matt did early on in his career.
