They say that in WWE – wins and losses don’t matter. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Stars are made upon these wins and losses and it’s abundantly clear that the perception of superstars has a lot to do with their win-loss record. However, there have been times where stars have been made based on a loss.
The art of looking good after defeat is something very rare, but when it happens, it’s absolutely magical. Superstars can still maintain their momentum despite the defeat and have even gone on to bigger and better things.
