It'd be interesting to see where he'd be in a timeline where he didn't marry into the family. I imagine somewhere in between Batista and and a less work ratey Kurt Angle.
I would also like to think that he would have been forced to be more creative with his character. Helmsley has done some interesting things over the years, but for me there have been far more please just go away moments.

Not that it wasnt already obvious, mind you. Then I wondered if there was someone in the original segment they didnt feel like giving TV time to? I cant remember who else was in it.
I say yes, and my hope would be that such a performance is then followed by a push to prove that they simply didn't get lucky in one match. I'd rather have all the roster names be a genuine threat to competently win any match.
