Say what y’all want, that first shot of Mike Tarver in the crowd during the Nexus intro is a top 5 WWE camera shot for me. That moment went from “what is this?” To “Oh shit!”

They'll have a dark match and Vince will grumble about one thing and send all four back to NXT for another 2 years.

Fans of that core group of guys would call this a best case scenario.

That’d be better than suddenly making them a team, like how they screwed OVW by turning the Damaja into a basham brother.

That’s basically what they did with Rollins and Ambrose too, isn’t it?

Am saddened knowing they are most likely moving on. 🙁

I thought NXT never put Ambrose on air. Seth was a babyface at the time, though.

There's still story on the bone for Ciampa and Gargano man.

This post should come with a trigger warning just in case Cornette lurks.

Sure, there's meat on the bone. But if those chicken wings have been sitting in your fridge for two years, they've probably gone bad.

I'm curious if they call anyone up to SDL. The Undisputed ERA to even things out?

While #DIY, Ricochet, and Black have made a dull Raw better, how about trying to find something for EC3, Heavy Machinery, Lacey Evans, and Nikki Cross? I liked the vignettes. Since then? Nothing.

They were rivals in FCW, IIRC.

With everyone suddenly caring about Kofi, who are the other longest employed full time active wrestlers currently in WWE?

Truth has been there forever but he was in TNA for a while.

Have Hawkins and Ryder been consistently employed since they debuted?

Alicia Fox

Nattie

Ziggler

Heath Slater

Hawkins got released and brought back. Ryder was there the whole time.

Fuck Randy Orton.

Always the correct answer, like fuck Hulk Hogan.

Ryder debuted on the main roster about 6 months before Kofi and has been there the entire time

The Usos have been on the main roster and together as a team almost a decade which is crazy when you think about how the WWE normally handles tag teams

Heath Slater debuted about two months before the Usos (yes the Nexus angle was that long ago - Feb 2010)

Natalya started on the main roster right after Mania in 2008

Alicia was technically the wedding planner (in the Edge/Vickie angle) in June 2008 but then vanished for awhile

If we start from when Ziggler was Ziggler - then its Sept 2008 for him

Curtis Axel is the other person in the conversation as he debuted in 2010 like some of the other people on the list. Just depends on when you officially want to start counting from

But as pointed out - Randy Orton is 2002 and Miz is 2006

Random Note. At work tonight ain't was thinking how if I was booking in 2019 I would re-do the York Foundation gimmick, what with the anaylitics crowds in sports right now. And I would totally make WAR the primary stat the stable cared about, but instead of Wins Above Replacement as it is in baseball, it would be Wins Above Rotunda.

Who’s the most “replacement level” wrestler? Has to be mid card, can move up for the occasional cup of high card coffee. Good but not great on the ring. Just fungible as hell.

Rotunda is a really good choice as the quintessential 0 WAR wrestler. I was going to suggest Terry Taylor.

Of the current crop, maybe Alica Fox.

FTFY.

I feel like Alexa showed up on Smackdown one day, cut a great promo - then has kept on cutting the same promo for several years now.  I generally don't think she's a bad promo, but I feel like I saw all I needed to see of her during her first two months on the main roster.

Her talk show segments have been brutal, though, which makes me wonder how successful she'll be on a babyface.  Her babyface character didn't seem to be going anywhere when she was in NXT,

Yes, I miss baseball too my friend.   We're almost back don't worry.
