I've been watching a lot of 90's WWF lately and man, Bret and Shawn were able to pull some amazing matches out of big, lumbering workers (diesel, Sid etc). Who do you think were able to get the best matches out of big slugs? I'm sure Ric, Bret and Shawn are up there.
Shawn is definitely up there. I'm gonna go off the path a bit and say that Bruno was underrated for his ability to work his match with whatever giant goof of the month they sent his way. They would throw some truly awful monsters at him and he seemingly always got something watchable out of it. Of course I can't speak to his original title reign because there's no footage, but at least for the second one.
