Maybe I'm just a sucker for hard luck cases, but I honestly feel Brad was the most underrated guy in WCW throughout almost its entire existence. Particularly when he first debuted in the company he seemed like a can't miss prospect; he had a good body, not super muscular but still strong and fit looking, he was handsome with the 80's rocker hair (still in style a the time), but above and beyond all else he was GOOD in the ring. I think a major reason he ended up as a perennial jobber was because he was actually able to make other guys looking good in the ring, some of whom definitely had far less talent than he did. But obviously his biggest weakness was that he just wasn't good on the mic and really didn't know how to work the crowd. If he had been put with a tag team partner who could do the talking, maybe someone like Konnan, Bagwell, or Ernest Miller, I could easily have seen him holding one of the tag belts more than once. Or if he had been put with a manager who could do the talking I could definitely have seen him as TV champion having awesome programs with the likes of Jericho, Benoit, Booker T, and others. I could maybe even have seen him go as far as US champion as a solid upper card worker. He just never seemed to really get his chance to show what he was really capable of.
