So, setting size aside, Fit Finlay only needed to brown-nose to Trips a few times to be remembered as the multi-time World Champion?
Nah, Finlay was too old and made a name for himself in WCW. The brown-nosing will only get a person so far if they made a name for themselves outside of the WWE. Finlay did surprisingly well for himself, despite debuting for WWE in his late 40's. He held the United States Championship, had some choice feuds, and spent a good deal of time in the upper mid card.

Drew McIntyre was just born on the wrong side of the Irish Sea? Does Vince comparatively hate the Scottish?
Actually, Vince would not have endorsed McIntyre as a "future WWE Champion", had he not intended to push him. In McIntyre's case, his marital problems and bad attitude, cost him that main event push. Still, its not to late, after all, Sheamus floundered for almost a year, following his initial mega push.
