If they don't tick Vince's boxes, they get a sniff at the top spot, but the second things don't go EXACTLY RIGHT, they're considered flops at the box office. Never mind Roman, Cena, and HHH's constant chances.
Austin had loads of charisma before he became the guy. Anyone who argued otherwise would have just been wrong. Maybe he didn't show it off to that extent but he always showed it. You can't really compare him to Styles. Austin got a chance to "be himself" and took shit to another level. Styles hasn't been pigeonholed by a gimmick or anything. For all intents and purposes, he has just been himself for most of his career.

And it's not conditioning. A successful face of the company absolutely needs to tick those boxes to some extent. No one is gonna draw new fans in in droves or keep the casual fans coming back because "workrate" and that's really all Styles has going for him. All it's good for is appealing to hardcore wrestling fans who are gonna watch whether he's main eventing or jerking the curtain.
