Video: Dr. Shelby is a bigger star in WWE than half the roster

It's really quite amazing to see who does and doesn't get over in front of WWE audiences. Take Dr. Shelby, for instance, who has proven to be a bigger star than half the WWE roster.

This is the kind of thing that always amazes me about WWE. You can never tell who is going to get over and how they're going to get there.

Take Daniel Bryan, for instance. Here's a guy who has all the talent in the world, a skillful technician who put the time in to become a master of his craft but stands small in stature and had to fight the current just to get a chance at Titan Towers. Once there, it took an 18 second world heavyweight championship loss at WrestleMania to really shoot him into the ranks of the elite.

He's so over, in fact, that he's consistently been part of some of the most entertaining segments on Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown despite the fact that he's been working a mid-card tag team with Kane, of all people.

Which brings us to Dr. Shelby, the anger management therapist who was never supposed to be much more than a bit comedy player who occasionally shows up for a few laughs. Somehow this man has gotten over to the point that he's getting "Backstage Fallout" interviews and proving to be just as over as nearly half the active roster.

And he doesn't even wrestle. What a wacky, awesome world.
