Now potential is almost always an interesting subject within the wrestling business and normally is a cause for discussion among wrestling fans. Most fans don't agree that a lot of names in WCW had potential to be in a top spot for whatever even though with some love there were some. In my opinion one of those names that could've broken through the glass ceiling is Mark Jindrak. I know that some might not agree but there is no doubt that Mark had the athletic ability and skills in the ring, but never really made it with the charisma. At first the WWE did really see it in Mark and gave him the opportunity at first, it never really went anywhere. I would honestly put this on the table that Mark was always better in a tag team as opposed to being a singles wrestler. However, had the WWE given Mark a manager from the outset and spent time to invest in him then it could've worked a little better for him to find his potential.
For those who don't really know a hidden story when the WWE was putting together Evolution stable there was a possibility at first that Jindrak would join the stable. Pick your jaw up off the floor and understand that yes, Mark Jindrak at one point was considered to be a member of Evolution. The decision was close enough to getting off the ground that Mark actually shot promotional footage with Randy, Ric, and Hunter. If your surprised you maybe also thinking what happen and why Jindrak was removed from the group. Well the simple reason is that Mark was removed as he put it due to "Immaturity" but I also think it could've had something to do with just a loss of faith or something to that affect. Not to worry though as Mark would become a big star in CMLL under the name Marco Corleone following his WWE depature.
However, it is always fun to wonder what could've been had the WWE not chosen to swap Batista into Evolution for Mark at the last minute for whatever reason. It is also puzzling to think if number one the stable would've been as successful and if Jindrak would've been put into the position that Batista was eventually in. I guess this just another reason why the phrase "What if" is one of the more popular phrase in the world of wrestling.
