WWE recently has been in a pretty unique situation. Their top star (Cena) was gone for a lengthy amount of time, they were pushing a new guy to replace him or at least be on that level, they turned one of the top company faces (HHH) heel which formed a hot corporate stable which spread into other various storylines. So, why not use this spotlight and lack of Cena to push new younger talent? They must have knew Orton vs Bryan wasn't going to get consistent Cena-like numbers for the length of time those two have been feuding? The exact same thing applies to CM Punk and Paul Heyman, right? They could have used that time to have Shield in two stories (bodyguards for stable, tag-team title feud) where they could drop the titles ASAP (holding them down). They could have debut talents from NXT. They're going with the angle where HHH is doing legitimate shit for business, why not use that excuse to debut various NXT talents to make RAW seem different? Currently, under his charge, the only change is that he wants Orton to be the face of the WWE. Make the story more realistic WHILST debuting new talent which creates OTHER STORIES. The latest PPV's have been so one dimensional because so much focus has been on the main event with no other interesting stories going on. IMO: the reason the corporate stable has gotten stale is because it's overshooting the same angle. The angle where HHH is keeping Bryan down via various heel antics. A corporate stable idea is only ever going to be hot for a long period is if they transform the company. TNA sort of had the idea at the beginning of Aces & Eights with Ray as its champion when they defaced the website and had it under A&8 control. Those touches matter. They could have had it so the HHH/Orton/Bryan story was the main event, Big Show's shitty part was a sub-plot to said main event, Shield losing the titles and putting focus on the new tag-team champions/division having a part (or two) on RAW, new faces from NXT appearing to join the "rebels" to HHH's regime which would basically mean debuting FACES from NXT. They could have heels from NXT appear who were picked under the boss' (HHH) order, which gives them instant heat from the set go. For example: Ascension could have feuded with the new face tag-team champions. What better tag-team from NXT is there to play the fucked up role where only HHH would see money in them? I'm kinda ranting so excuse the rushed grammar, but does anyone else agree that they missed a pretty big opportunity here?
