Ever since CM Punk went into premature retirement, WWE has been in a decline. Sure, Daniel Bryan and the Authority stemmed the rot for a while but the Yes-Man's unexpected injury put a spanner in WWE's plans. The WWE are in need of a big superstar who can turn the fate of the company around especially since their main man for the last few years, John Cena, is not getting the kind of support he used to earlier.
This might be the time when the baton gets passed on. For a long time, a select few superstars have been regulars in the main event scene. Now, the WWE seems to be placing its trust on a select few superstars from the younger generation.That certainly shows the kind of trust the management has on these superstars. While there is a hierarchy in that trust, the steps that these superstars are supposed to take and how they go about it, will determine their road ahead in the WWE.
His gimmick and the way Ambrose performs it has made it the best transformation any other Shield member has had yet. The aura of a renegade that Ambrose carries around makes him look even more cool. He is confident and his promos don’t seem mechanical as most of the roster. And also, Ambrose owned his new look. Jeans and all. Let's hope the WWE just lets him be.
Just like Ambrose, Wyatt has a way with his promos. He becomes his gimmick. He and his family seem creepier and a force to be reckoned with because of the way they carry themselves and the way Bray performs his promos. He has improved a lot in his matches as well. It will be exciting to see Ambrose and Wyatt going one on one on the mic. That will be great for whatever’s left of the fictionality of the WWE in this reality era. And as far as their characters go, their feud might become stranger than fiction.
Probably the coolest wrestler from The Shield. He reminds many of Jeff Hardy but the way he carries himself is so much different than Hardy did. He provided the most exciting moments in all the Shield matches and many relevant and game changing moments included. His heel turn will be remembered by the most ardent WWE fan forever. Ideally, Rollins would have been pictured as a babyface but this turn has proved that he can work well in any avatar. His promos have considerably improved but they still have a mechanical glitch to them, otherwise his wrestling persona is better than most.
He is just getting started but his overtly smiley demeanor and the façade he carries around himself of being a motivational coach only to give way for his aggression, makes him a character that one can easily react to.He is supposed to be comedic but does not seem like he’ll fit in with Santino or Fandango. WWE has better plans for him and he seems to be getting there gradually but steadily. He has not had a good match or good feud yet but his character has not suffered from that. He will rise, it seems. He is doing just fine. Bo-lievably fine.
The heir apparent is finally getting the push that was always expected and reported. After all, who can ignore those looks that are protocol to every superstar that has ever received a massive push since Triple H began taking the reins of the company.But he still has to work on his promos and matches. I mean, looks can only get you this far. His style of talking is not unique and his moves seem like they come with the expiry date that John Cena had on his moves and which he still seems to exceed. He is the chosen one, it seems. So expect more hype in the coming days.
