Re: Too many debuts in a short timespan
I never really thought about it that way but you're quite right actually. The big problem is that a lot of these guys are being called up, then being lost in the shuffle because they're all relegated to a very stale midcard scene which has little effort put into it. This all is ultimately stemming from the fact that they don't have plans for these guys. Look at the post Mania RAW, Enzo and Cass, sure, they were ready. Corbin and Crews? Corbin has a lot of polishing to do, but they clearly didn't have a real plan for him, they want to make him a big deal but they don't know how to. Crews is even worse because he doesn't even have any sort of character to run with.
Breeze is probably the worst of the bunch, he essentially lost his debut feud with Ziggler and then they totally gave up on him. He wasn't helped by the fact that their feud was lazy, and their big match was also on one of the worst PPVs in recent memory. Most people who debut, they seem to get something for a month and then they just fall into obscurity. They can't keep calling up people without long term ideas for them otherwise it's going to damage them and their talent pool in the long run because nobody will care about them.
Fair enough it keeps things fresh, and a lot of the debuting guys are talented, but there's no point in having them there unless they have something to work towards.
