Yes but that is exactly what we see with Morrison.

I can't understand why this guys is enjoying a resurgence!

He looked very good on film/paper, but consistently failed to deliver on that promise in the ring, like so many fighters that have looked good on film/paper.

There is absolutely no reason to think that he would have got a different result in another era.
