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?)
True intelligence is the ability to admit you know nothing (or something like that)
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 :)
Right now, I think Taz and Cole are the only ones who add to the in-ring product. Even when Lawler and Ross are being entertaining (which isn't often, in my opinion) they detract more than they add to the in-ring action.
