Anyway, WWE is stockpiled with entertainers who are greener than green. So they needed some even greener fresh faces to run in last night to occupy Ryback for the time being.
A lot of you WWE diehards all fought me to death on the Nexus two years ago. They were the new and improved NWO the way the NWO angle should have gone down. I argued the Nexus were nothing more than the Spirit Squad with potential. And look at them and that pathetic storyline now. It was beyond laughable much like this is. I don't really get the point of hooking the green ass nobodies with Heyman and Punk. Punk was already put together with the NXT guys before and he didn't need them or really help them. They weighed him down.
Let' s see... Where to begin??
First I'm not some WWE "diehard" but I can recognize somebody's bullshit when I smell it.
Yes, Reigns is green. Perhaps even "greener than green". But to characterize Moxley as green is ridiculous. To characterize Black as green is utterly negligent.
Moxley and Black have been ready for the big stage since they were signed. They got the mandatory stint in development to learn how to adequately water down their styles to fit into the WWE environment, and since then its just been a waiting game.
The only reason they weren't called up is because they are so good that the WWE didn't just want to randomly toss them onto the main roster without a real idea or storyline. They wanted to bring up "Ambrose" and "Rollins" in a way that gave them the most chance to get spotlight and succeed early, because both are massive pieces to the company's future.
I'm just glad that this wasn't Hero being classified by someone as green or I may have thrown my computer across the room in disgust, as he's lightyears better than 98% of the main roster.
As for your Nexxus points. Yes the WWE fucked up the storyline royally. And to that end, I don't expect huge longterm things from this new invading trio as far as a stable goes. But that doesn't mean that all three won't become main eventers.
Look at the original NXT invaders... Bryan is a former World Champ already, Ryback is a main eventer, Barrett is on the cusp of the main event, and the likes of Slater, Gabriel, Otunga, and Young are all solid midcarders with regular TV time.
The fact is Reigns has the look and pedigree to be a star. And Moxley and Black have talent that can't be denied, I'd bet the house both will be future World Champions, and perhaps may fued with each other over a world title belt for a long time somewhere down the road.
Save the green-ass nobodies shit for guys like Maddox... keep it far, far away from Ambrose and Rollins.
