I'll give you both those and LAX as examples of gimmicks which have not been replaced, but not that they shouldn't have split them up.
LAX was a very solid babyface team in 2008.

And I'm talking about Sky and Angelina as TBP. Everything else after that - Garbage.

Yes, the robbies are going to end. My gawd, it's the end of everything...

Ryback\skip

Thgunomics\Cena

even if you can keep writing new stuff for it, the fact that the gimmick is so old takes away form the story
For how long The Rock is doing his shtick after everything clicked for his character? What about The Game? Almost 15 years now?
You just don't ruin good gimmicks/characters. And that's exactly what TNA is doing here. Or at least just going from something passable to 100% shite (i.e. Robbies => Rob Terry).

TNA always has to have a generic Mexican tag team, the only difference was that Hernandez and Homicide were actually a good tag team and had chemistry. They would still have been a good tag team if they were called Barry Manilow's Marching Band and wrestled in dinosaur costumes. Hernandez and Anarquia and Chavo are rubbish tag teams, and would be rubbish tag teams with any other gimmick.

I miss LAX, don't get me wrong, but they were nothing special. Its just they were replaced by LAX II, which was just stupid and highlighted how pointless it was to break up a good tag team and replaced them with a rubbish team with the same gimmick.

The reason they added new people to TBP was the same reason you add characters to a dying sitcom.



The Robbie's still crack me up and are fresh because of Robbie E's amazingness on the mic, and the bro list (earl hebner LOL), that can't be said for LAX or TBP.

The Robbies are useless together and they'll be useless separately. Only thing that'll change is they'll be in a feud with one another. Settle down and save the energy for something even remotely important.

I'm down for THE FREAK: PART II.

Seriously. I can't say I have any real feelings towards it happening. Let alone copious amounts of negative ones. It is what it is.

So splitting up the dudleys was a bad idea according to your logic?

But it wasn't dying. The original LAX was never at that point. It was the right gimmick with the right people. You can stop the push, put them on hold, push them again later and it's gonna work. You can always re-do the good stuff in wrestling.

People still cheer BEER! MONEY! on their house shows for fucks sake (and I was not against the break up btw ).

He has been decent on OVW and from the looks of it he's still gonna be on a tag team but with the other guy (no spoilers)

Yes they cheer it, how ever had they kept it going odds are they would not, an example, I'll be it ex stream

look at Flair\hogan, they kept "comming back latter" and people booed them\started to hate them

if you keep bring something back it gets stale.
