He's still young and has been continuously relevant. He gave Sheamus, one of the golden boys, a long fight tonight. Rhodes' injury has derailed him a bit in the short term, but I don't think he's done by any means.

Regarding the new trio: I'm really excited by Ambrose and Rollins. Reigns makes them look credible too.

He was gonna work TLC with Bryan and Kane and his partner got injured, shit happens.

It unfortunate that for the time being, he's likely going to be "that guy" that gets random wins over midcarders, and gets random losses to upper midcarders and main eventers who need a win.

That doesn't mean he's buried for life though.

I personally think it has something to do with those trips Punk made down to NXT, where he fought Ambrose and fought alongside Rollins. Maybe he went down there to scout talent.

I like this. Great point! The best thing about Reigns is his look and presence which definitely elevates the group.

It doesn't matter, he lost. That's all anybody remembers, that's all anybody cares about, that's all that matters.

So you bury the guy because his partner gets injured? That's a telltale sign the company doesn't value someone. Anybody who they want to push is going to be pushed regardless.

We'll see. You know what this company does to real talent by now. The best thing you can do is to never invest in any new talent, because they'll more than likely fail. It doesn't make any sense and I'll never figure out why, but WWE LOVES having their talent fail, they specifically set people up to not get over.

What was the reason that the people were supposed to get behind him, other than the company just saying "phht, well, he's...in school".

Anyway, I was a little disappointed with what WWE did with these three tonight. I hope they properly introduce them with mic time next week, Ambrose at least.


:ksi2

So you want Ambrose, by far the most talented man in the group, to be the joint least relevant?
Hey man, everyone has a role to play. If he can prove himself as a tag guy the there might be a chance they'll let him fly solo.

Not sure how yet though.
Maddox is the leader. Maddox infiltrated by being a ref and the other 3 got as security guards. They're paying back Ryback for what he did to Maddox. It works out fine.

What they should do is book those 3 as equals and place them with Punk in a stable and Maddox can go to smackdown and be recycled.
The story is already in motion with Maddox having no affiliation with Punk, wanting to get noticed and getting annihilated by Ryback. Having his friends back him for retribution makes perfect sense. And you want these guys to be presented as equals? Remember how Nexus and the Corre ended up? Someone has to be the top of the chain the group and the rest gets relegated to their supporting roles. Ambrose is clearly not the leader in this group.

I hate to admit it but none of these guys have had a 'debut' yet. Right now they are just run-ins to change the scope of a current situation. Until they have actual matches either in singles or tag-teams they are no better off than maddox was with his little moment of fame.

I hope I am wrong but I don't think for one second that WWE creative has any real plans for them. Doesn't matter who they are or how good people think they are. All that matters is if creative has a place for each of them and we all know that creative doesn't have the best track record for new 'talent'.

Though, seeing how creative has been in the past few mos. I don't give them anymore than to bury each of them very soon. Having 3 nobodies (according to casuals) jump a face (ryback) won't turn out well. They should have had a build and a work up to it. A surprise attack like these won't make them. Only time will tell now.

It's all speculation. No one here knows how this will play out, you can guess, and if you're right saying you knew is just stupid.
