Lots of new talent getting the spotlight

Discussion in 'RAW' started by Stopspot, Nov 19, 2013.

  1. Am I the only one who has been noticing this lately? How a lot of younger talent are getting showcased regularly in the upper card now, instead of it being like it was in 2012 when it consisted of Punk, Cena, Del Rio, Big Show and Kane with Bryan getting a semi rub through feuding with Punk. Now we have the shield, Real Americans (via run ins and matches with Cena), Usos, Super Rhodes bros and the Wyatt's all being showcased in the main event alongside established guys like Orton, Bryan, Punk and Mysterio and more. They aren't pushed straight in but rather tested out, giving multiple smaller rubs rather than one major and expecting to flop. Seemingly getting the crowds more used to these guys hanging around in that scene/on that level.

    Am I the only one seeing this and enjoying this? They might not be guaranteed to create new top stars out of this but they are creating believable cornerstones, establishing some depth in the on screen roster. IMO at least.

  2. I've recently started to notice this and it's truly awesome to witness. It seems as though that as Triple H gains more power the WWE are taking more chances with their newer talents. It's something that'll definitely pay off in the long run.
     
  3. If last nights main event wasn't showcasing young talent I don't know what is, tbh all of last nights show was filled with young talent. Miz and Kofi vs Real Americans, Axel vs Big E, Ryback Vs Big Show as Ryback is still young talent just not good, Ziggler Vs Sandow, Xavier Woods debut (marked). The spotlight is there its just time for them to step up.
     
  4. Good thread. I've spotted it too. They're spreading the show out around the roster as well, instead of so much focus going on one guy (usually Cena). Obviously that doesn't apply during build ups to stars like Bryan recently, but younger and hungrier talent getting spotlight can only be good. RAW has a good future imo.

  5. Yeah, it's awesome.

    Funny how the two world title pictures (Orton/Show & Cena/ADR) contain the established stars who supposedly carry the company, yet both angles are the worst bits of a RAW. Seriously, I'd rather see a Kofi/Miz segment than either of these two. Until the newer guys that have been mentioned break into the title pictures, nothing has really changed. Ziggler's WHC reign was a disaster and it looks like Bryan is out of the WWE title picture.

  6. I did notice it during the main event when I stopped to think about it, it's pretty awesome. This is how wrestling should be, building stars for the future. Great stuff.
