Replace doucheness with the word personality and this is how the WWE pretty much creates all of its characters.
Not anymore. Not in the past 7 years or so. In that time, its become so unbelievably scripted to a t. Every wrestler has the same set of writers writing their promos in the same style, all across the board. And the wrestlers have to follow that written promo almost directly. It makes every single wrestler the same boring ass character, with the same boring ass personality.
Before, people were just told to go out there with a bullet point on what to cover, and sell their match, THAT was when people could up their personality level 10 notches to create characters like Stone Cold, or The Rock.
The only person to really escape the promo clone factory is Cena, and thats only because he has a boatload of charisma, and is good enough to turn that boring drivel that the writers throw out there on a constant basis into something decent.
Why Miz is a breath of fresh air, and why WWE is getting better, is because they seem to be relaxing the "SAY THIS WORD FOR WORD, AND SAY IT HOW THAT GUY OVER THERE SAID IT" mentality thats been turning the business into the Randy Orton clone factory.
And its not "all characters are themselves, turned up 10 notches", its "all the BEST characters are themselves, turned up 10 notches". Theres plenty of people whos characters are nothing like themselves, and that rarely works out.
