It's sad when you consider that, of the six guys involved in that match, only Edge managed to make a career out of himself. (Christian did pretty OK, I guess, but not on Edge's level. The Dudleys are still currently puttering around in TNA, right? And we ALL know what happened to the Hardys...)
Well, all that depends of a lot of things. Out of those guys, only Edge and Jeff Hardy were really charismatic. Christian as well, but as you said, not on Edge's level. The Dudleys are a package, they went a lot further as a tag team than they would have as individuals. I don't watch TNA (but I might start if Raw keeps going the way it is. WWE sucks now. They really dropped the ball with Lesnar.) so i don't know what they do. They Hardys? Yeah, that's a sad story. I think that even as a tag team or as individuals they had a lot of promise. They fulfilled some of them. But, they let the WWE abuse them and take advantage of them with all those TLC and Ladder matches and stuff, and now their bodies are paying the price. And the usual result is that they get hooked on painkillers and other stuff, and that's what happened to both of them. I think Jeff is worse off than Matt. I always thought that they could have turned Matt into a clean-cut Bret Hart-type character and wrestler. He even looks like a young Bret a little. But yeah, considering Edge, where he has been and that he ended up in the HOF, he definitely did the most with what he had. And a lot of people are begrudging him and the WWE the fact that he is in and a lot of other "deserving" old guys aren't. I think Edge deserves the HOF, and the other people are kept out by politics on both sides. It has nothing to do with recognition of talent.
