Re: This roster has the potential to be great and even equal the attitude era.

I think the roster been starting to grow on me as of late. The problem is it has taken too many years. These guys should have been built up much better and much faster... now im not sure if i like them for their talents or because they're kinda of like vets in their own rights... I mean Ziggler's been here how long now?

...
(1) Road Dogg (2) Kurrgan (3) The Godfather (4) Goldust (5) Kane (6) Val Venis (7) Prince Albert (8) Billy Gunn (9) Grandmaster Sexy (10) Steve Blackman (11) Al Snow (12) Raven (13) Perry Saturn (14) The Honky Tonk Man (15) Tazz (16) Crash Holly (17) Albert (18) Scotty 2 Hotty (19) The Rock (20) Big Show (21) Rosie (22) A-Train (23) Rob Van Dam (24) Mark Jindrak (25) Bobby Lashley (26) Tommy Dreamer (27) Sabu (28) King Booker (29) Rowdy Roddy Piper (30) Jimmy Snuka (31) John Morrison (32) Dolph Ziggler (33) Santino Marella (34) Finlay (35) Matt Hardy (36) Ezekiel Jackson (37) The Great Khali (38) Daniel Bryan (39) CM Punk

WHO'S NEXT?

Just like 2012 was supposed to have a very strong roster with MVP, Mr.Kennedy, Morrison, Carlito, Bobby Lashley, Brian Kendrick ...

Re: This roster has the potential to be great and even equal the attitude era.

I admire your optimism, and there are some hot names to watch like Ziggler, Ambrose and Cesaro who are all on their way up. Not to mention a re-invented Del Rio who is showing great signs of becoming a top face.

But apart from that, the roster is just too stale, consisting of mostly bland and generic performers who don't stand out and don't make much of an impact with the audience and the casual fans. I still think the E needs a few new stars (or at least one) to really break the mould and set the place on fire again. That is, if Vince allows them to do so.

If there was the magical chance for a fresh start, then I would agree. Most members of the roster are too well established as bland to change that.

Re: This roster has the potential to be great and even equal the attitude era.

They have the best mid card talent that they've ever had. They have about 10 guys who have the potential to be main event level guys. It's just whether they make the commitment and if the WWE brass doesn't fuck em up like they have with a lot of guys in the past.

One problem that I seem them running into is tag teams seem extremely shitty at the moment and that's a problem. It's a good break in the singles action *if* you have the talent. Unfortunately they have a really shitty tag team roster and it's an expensive investment for niche matches.

Re: This roster has the potential to be great and even equal the attitude era.

Today's major stars, I think, are Cena, Punk, Sheamus, Orton, and Del Rio. The guys who can rise and hopefully shake things up are Dean Ambrose, Antonio Cesaro, Dolph Ziggler, and Wade Barrett.

I'm absolutely convinced that Dean Ambrose can be one of the greatest all-time heels. Lol seriously, he's just so good. No one else sounds like him, and he's real and he's psycho and he's evil, and he's just 27. He could be the next Triple H, he'll be the big bad guy for SOOOO many yrs. Watch any promo of his on the internet as Ambrose or Jon Moxley, he had it when he was in preschool.

So to me, my issue is: Can the WWE find a top face, the quality of just John Cena (who has been a bit of a flop, he's just so divisive), let alone the quality of Rock or Austin. If they could find one good guy as entertaining every night as Rock or Austin, based on crazy unpredictable stuff they do, or just great, great promos every night, then the WWE will be great. Rock is my all-time favorite, and even he was kindof the same every night, he just barely changed up his promo like a comedy shtick for a new opponent/town, AND I LOVED IT EVERY NIGHT. Can they find another Rock? WWE has a great enough roster to support that guy, but it needs that ONE guy. If not it'll just be this great roster we know about and enjoy, but nothing really special, and no growth for the company. He'll have CM Punk, Dean Ambrose, and Dolph Ziggler to feud with.

Can Randy develop into some unpredictable badass who raises hell every night, with the right writing and rivalries? I'm actually not his biggest fan, but he's pretty good at every aspect of the game, and has the looks and the credibility of a sadistic bastard. Stone Cold says it takes ten yrs in the business to figure it all out, and although I shit on Orton a lot, he's ALREADY got great delivery, been in a ton of storylines, has great matches where he plays his character well, and probably gets the biggest pop of the night that doesn't come with a "sux" chant. And he's just 31 and he's been on the roster learning forever. Can he churn out crazy good storylines with Ambrose, Ziggler, and Punk, and make Raw must-see TV? If you can ever have a top face without great mic skills, its someone with the credibility of Orton feuding with the mic skills and shenanigans of Ambrose or Punk.

Thoughts? I'm so high on the roster overall, I just think its one this one missing piece, and the roster already has multiple great rivals for him.

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
Del Rio, Orton, Bryan, Ziggler, Wyatt, Usos, Cesaro, Mysterio, Kane
DGPW: Doi, Yoshino, Tozawa, Yamato, Dragon Kid, BxB Hulk, Ricochet, Super Shisa
NJPW: Okada, Nakamura, Styles ROH: Briscoes, Fish and O'Reilly, Young Bucks
All-Time: Rock, Punk, Lesnar, Angle

Re: This roster has the potential to be great and even equal the attitude era.

Oh, and I love Punk, and will unconditionally support him in all the things that he does, but he's not the next big face. He got a bit stale as a face, no longer having anything to rebel against, and is perfect as a heel. He should be selling the next big star, I don't think he can BE the next big star. Maybe him and Shield can make Raw fun and unpredictable like the nWo, but he'll never be the big face.

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
Del Rio, Orton, Bryan, Ziggler, Wyatt, Usos, Cesaro, Mysterio, Kane
DGPW: Doi, Yoshino, Tozawa, Yamato, Dragon Kid, BxB Hulk, Ricochet, Super Shisa

I doubt it. Current wrestlers just don't have "IT", they feel like precooked products with little character or personality.
