So how come everyone that comes from "NXT" is unstoppable? that'd be like Iron Mike Shark coming out in today's wrestling and winning the WWE belt

Because the WWE hasn't been able to build a star in a very long time. So all of them have to be starts now to see which ones stick. It's HHH's way of doing things.

i think that's been one of the better developments in the last year or so. One of the biggest knocks on the WWE has been lack of new main eventers. I really like how aggressive HHH has been signing top end indie talent.

The Shield are great. Ryback (even though i hate him) is a legitimate main eventer. Big E is good in his role. Then you have the Wyatt Family coming in soon, which is good... Kassius Ohno will be on raw very soon... I don't see Sami Zayn staying off TV very long... and, i read that it was officially announced today that Sami Callihan was signed to a developmental contract.

they are kind of in the 'throw it at the wall and see what sticks' mode right now, but their track record has been pretty good as of late.

The Shield is excellent, I agree. Ryback needs more of a flamboyant gimmick to be a top star. He is too dry right now to garner much interest. It worked for Goldberg because you don't often see a face who is that bad***. If you're going to go with the "I can destroy anybody" routine it dries up quickly for the guys who are heels.

i didn't say he was a good main eventer, just that he is a guy who is credible in that role.

I agree with this 100% I also think if they want to build up Curtis Axel then he should beat Cena clean tonight. Well here comes Ryback as I type. :thumbdown: :thumbdown:

Yeah, seriously if they want to push the guy have him fight dudes who don't care about losing via pinfall or submission. Jericho would do it, I'm sure a guy like Orton wouldn't have the clout to say no etc.

you're good. it's a fair point. it's a big chunk of why i hate ryback, and the invincible booking in general. it makes for one note characters. I really hate ryback. i think he's sloppy, gets gassed way too fast, has a crap finishing move, isn't a particularly good talker, etc...

Nah. Power plant was a school. NXT is getting guys who already know what they are doing ready for tv.

they have been on NXT for a while. The one on the left went by Brodie Lee in the indies, and is really damn good.

Cashing in on the Duck Dynasty craze.
