But, think about how much better Orton & Batista have gotten since being a part of Evolution ...
I am hesitant about this - Orton and Batista have definitely improved quite a bit since joining Evolution, but they have TWO of the best guys in the business to learn from. Both HHH and Flair are very talented workers who also are very solid on the mic. Not to mention, both Orton and Batista were protected in the booking, and they've been given a chance to work with top or certainly upper midcard level talent. This is precisely the recipe to get someone over.
In Angle's faction, we only have one top level performer, Kurt himself. I'll be very surprised if both Reigns and Jindrak get over as a result of this angle. I hope otherwise, but one of them will fail.
my favorite "faction" in recent memory is DX. the NOA rocked as the tag team and China as the enforcer was sweet. They were the perfect size. Their skit ripping on the Nation was one of the best eva. The nation seemed unwieldy I think not because their numbers were so great, but because their talent level was so low. Too many suckers.
Angle's Team Angle was very coherent, and not even really a faction. They were his project. I loved the velour suits and everything about them.
I hate to see Kurt relegated to faction leader instead of singles badass, but he is a great leader, so I will get over it. Haas is a good fit, and they could even bring Rico (if they de-gayed him a bit) and Jackie with him. That would be a sweet faction, IMHO.

Ahh Why couldn't they name them The REAL Team Sucksquad.
Maybe not fair, Reigns has been an okay big man & better then expected mic skills when he did talk. He's no Snitsky, but not many men are!... Jindrak never showed me anything more then a good vertical leap, if he was a performer for AND 1 streetball. I might be impressed.
smark/net attack wienerville advisory holds at ORANGE alert - High (JBL is STILL WWE champion and now smarks arch enemy HHH is the World Champion. Major red threat, but the undercard seems okay. The alert holds... for now)- 9/19

It's the old WCW audience that didn't crossover when WCW died. Add to that the other old-time wrestling fans that dropped off in the past 20 years. Throw in the current fanbase. And you've got yourself a redhot DVD.
