Be fair to Sean Waltman.

He was number four (or Syxx) in the two biggest groups in 1990 wrestling; both DX and nWo. He had programs with former world champions, and should receive credit for that.

People forget Roma, Ole, and even Arn Anderson. They were on no higher a playing field then Sean, but they started with lower expectations.

Lightning Kid was before his time, and when time caught up he was forgotten, or worse trampled on.

        In the far recesses of my memory, I recall a WCW face stable from the early 90s called "Dudes with Attitudes." The only members I can remember are Paul Orndorff and JYD.

      I do believe that Sting & Luger were a part of the group as well, as it was Sting that basically "formed" the stable.

    The Dudes With Attitudes were the Steiners, JYD and Orndorff, and their last appearance as a unit was in Sting's corner at the Great American Bash. They were originally called The Super Heroes.

Wait a tick...didn't Foley's first book say that Shane Douglas was part of this stable...complete with the pink shorts and never-used skateboard?

Star wipe, and...we're out.

I completly agree but now which should be the peak of his career, he's become a 'where are they now' case.
Also on the Batista thing, i think Batista has top potential but he is never used in Evo and looks to be going the way of the others. Obviously Evo is the rising star (Orton), the champ (HHH), the guy who can promo and bring some reputation to the group (Flair) and the big guy (Dave).
Unfortunatley, he always seems the least important of the group which should be Flairs job. Evo is definatley NOT the Four Horseman in making careers power but we already knew that. They should level it out a bit and give Dave some sort of push that actually looks like its going somewhere and not just a push for the sake of a push (which it seems the WWE has been doing alot lately - Holly, JBL anyone?)

I thought briefly there that Batista was going to get the IC push right after Orton dropped it to Edge. In fact, of the Edge/Jericho/Batista match, I pictured Batista being the one to take that and have a monster run, only to be taken down by a returning Shelton Benjamin. In a perfect world, anyway...

As for stables, I must admit I have little interest in seeing an HBK-led group. A new NOD on Smackdown sounds a bit intriguing, but I can't see who could create much drama there, despite Long's rumored involvement (plus, that would involve a heel turn I'm guessing? Was the NOD ever a face faction?).

I also vote against (for what it's worth) an Angle stable on Smackdown, even if it did give some direction to the Bashams or Haas. We already have a dominant heel stable in the WWE, or we did, and that's not what's needed, really, is it?

No, that was the Dynamic Dudes, the team of Douglas and Johnny Ace. But both were equally lame if that helps.

Also, going back to the Dudes With Attitudes, I think Rocky King (pre-Little Richard Marley, ugh) was temporarily part of The Dudes. As well as El Gigante. And I'm sure Robocop was an honorary member :)

I really can't believe that Vince is sitting there watching Nash/Triple H and thinking that this is going to draw him money. I really can't see anyone in charge of a business thinking this. The logic, or lack there, of just totally bogles my mine.
