2nd and 3rd Generation Wrestlers

Is it just me or do 2nd generation superstars struggle to find their footing in the company or fail to reach Main Event status (see [I]Cody Rhodes, Ted Dibiase, Carlito, [I]) while 3rd generation superstars acheive a lot more success (see The Rock, Randy Orton). You know, megastar level.

Rock and Orton were starting out at a time where the writers knew how to build guys.

DiBiase and Rhodes haven't had that luxury. Maybe over time though.

As for Carlito. Someone just seems to really have it out for that man...

Hence why he is destined for greatness and it's funny how quickly forget how much Orton jobbed before he became part of Evolution and came in the same time as Brock Lesner and he was pushed to the moon.

I think it's a lot harder to gain footing if your gimmick itself is "I'm a second-third generation superstar" and you're lacking the other intangibles. You can only ride that train so far. It's one of the reasons I don't think Cody Rhodes isn't going to be a mainstay in the WWE. His gimmick so far is this: that he's Dusty Rhodes son, and that his father's legacy has created connections that have gotten him to where he is now, which is a group based completely on that "Legacy". But take that away from him and what does he have? Bad mic work, a lisp, and no knee pads. No, I'm definitely interested in what will become of Cody Rhodes once his Legacy feud is worn out.

Oh yeah. That too.

And oddly, he's much closer to being a realistic star than Cody.
