the difference is that the shield came in fresh, people hadnt seen them before on television and they didn't have existing gimmicks.
brisco and bischoff have been on tna television, establishing gimmicks and such, and now they're in a biker gang. unless you're an established name, then it usually doesnt work. we've seen bischoff made to be a bitch, brisco being a kurt angle cocksucker. now they're in a biker gang. if they had debuted in the gang they would've had a chance to be legitimate looking. instead they're 2 little bitches who are suddenly in a biker gang.
