Re: If the Rap/Hip Hop game were in a WWE enviorment?
The Shield would be Black Hippy (specifically Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, and Schoolboy Q.) Three young guns looking to make a name for themselves in the WWE. Their profiles have people clamoring them as the next big things in the business. Their raps can be considered better than 90% of rap put out today like how the Shield is going over all the top guys in the WWE. I would say Ambrose = Soul for their lyrical (promo) ability, Jay Rock = Reigns for their powerful words (or strength in Reigns case), and Schoolboy = Rollins for their technical prowless (Q's producion = Rollins in ring style)
Sheamus could equal Nikki Minaj. Not trying to be gender specific but think of it like this. When they first came out, their attitudes on the mic (or in the ring) where brutal (in a good way), in your face, and intense. Young guns that maybe people didn't want to get behind but you knew they were going to be huge when they began to rise in stock. As the time passed and they started doing stuff they didn't need to do (Sheamus turning face = Nikki going pop), their personalities and uniqueness started to become stripped from them and are just phony acts of what they once are, despite becoming now mainstream stars in their world.
Randy Orton is Drake. Yes just like how Cena, Sheamus, and Orton are the WWE Superfriends, the same goes with Drake, Wayne, and Minaj as the YMCMB people that are the top of the game. Orton/Drake were young studs who you knew had a future in the business but got opportunities that some can see as way too soon (Drake's abrupt transition from Degrassi to Rap = Orton winning the WHC in 2004). Despite it, as they grew older and wiser, they became more talented. Drake's run with Thank You Later could be equated to Orton's Legend Killer run in 08/09. However, now they're being portrayed as these tough individuals they never were in the beginning and people are calling them out on their phoniness.
Dolph Ziggler and Kendrick Lamar are like Peanut Butter and Jelly. Two young guns who have always been great for they do in terms of technical ability (lyrical prowess) but never got the recognition for it. Whenever they looked to get any look at them, they're always passed on for someone else that's bigger. Until they had a breakout year or moment, the fans grow larger and they are just getting started in what they look to become. Always have had a underground (IWC) appeal to them and still do. Great masters as a relative young age. Future star potential.
