Not really the case...Johnson tagged Peters I believe in his first or second year in the league but I think it was his rookie season... Regardless, Peters was good for several seasons after that...
As far as Lessard goes I am pretty sure he opened up with Rosehill because Rosehill is a journeyman HW and is not considered heavy handed...Lessard used to be a warrior but he seems to have lost his will to stand and bang away with a top guy...It happens to alot of guys...BGL was considered the champ by many and it somewhat happened to him so its not like its a rarity....
