Evolution are set to face off against The Shield at Payback, in a no holds barred elimination tag team match.
But the big question mark hanging above Evolution will be whether Batista will be at Monday Night Raw the following night, with reports that he has fulfilled his dates for the contract he signed a number of months ago and will now leave to promote his new film; Guardians of The Galaxy where he plays Drax The Destroyer.
Batista was said to be persuaded to stay until Payback, as he wanted to leave earlier than scheduled, after the Extreme Rules event.
Now that Batista could be on his way out, a new member has been rumoured to be joining and that man is current United States Champion Sheamus.
It’s no secret that Triple H is a big fan of The Celtic Warrior, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if they did bring in Sheamus to join Evolution, but is it really such a good idea?
No, it isn’t. It’s as simple as that. As good as Sheamus is nor he or Evolution will be benefit from joining Evolution. Sheamus – whether you want to believe it or not – is a massive star in the WWE and if he joins Evolution there is no way he will be able to establish himself as a threat like Orton, Batista and even Triple H have over the years, he will take a back seat in the group.
Sheamus has already established himself as a big star in a singles career, would throwing in Sheamus make this stable even more successful? Definitely not, stables usually have one distinct leader and the rest are not top level.
Shawn Michaels was the leader of D-Generation X the first time round and then Triple H took over once DX was brought back.
The NWO had Hulk Hogan. The Undertaker was the leader of The Ministry and so on, the previous Evolution had Triple H as its leader. Now Triple H, Randy Orton and Sheamus are already massive stars, and they’re already pushing it by having such big stars and managing to be successful.
The point of Evolution is to get younger superstars over where it features the past, which we saw in Ric Flair, the present; with Triple H and the future in both Randy Orton and Batista. The group were very successful during their time together and even more successful when Evolution disbanded.
But the success of the likes of Orton and Batista comes down to one thing, experience during Evolution. Sheamus is already a big star and is not someone you would consider as the future of the company.
If the WWE still wants to go forward with Evolution then that’s not a bad idea, but having Sheamus involved is. If they continue with it then Triple H will take over from Ric Flair as the veteran, the past. Orton will be the present and we need a future superstar to represent the future.
They basically need to look for a new Randy Orton, someone who was touted for greatness as a young superstar – and exceeded all expectations. But there aren’t many great choices available right now in the WWE.
Any superstar associated with Evolution will succeed, Batista had the size but not the microphone skills but it took him to World Champion level, the WWE has fantastic wrestlers and sometimes even better talkers on the microphone. My personal pick; albeit an unlikely one, Drew McIntyre.
WWE fans – what do you think? Should Sheamus be the potential new member of Evolution? Or, who do you believe should join Evolution? Have your say in the comments section below and come discuss all things WWE with me on Twitter @RazK28.
