Re: Goldberg says the spear 'is coming', and not to WWE
it began to fizzle out when it took so long to unmask anyone. At this point, I think the only thing that could save the whole thing is a Goldberg reveal... I've been thinking that for months now too.
How? It's still going pretty strong as we are all constantly floating theories and posting rumors of who could be one of the unmasked wrestlers. If A&8s went and unmasked everyone tomorrow the angle would be over. There'd really be nothing left to follow, no more surprises, just a bunch of mid-carders in vests randomly attacking people and shooting terrible promos (Like the Shield).
The anonymity the masks add give far more interest to the angle, even if the guys behind the mask have been mid-carders. There's still the intrigue that someone big could be hiding behind one of those masks, but we have to wait and see.
In the meantime, the mysteries behind the masks are basically all everyone is talking about with this stable. That's hardly "fizzling".
