Actually, I would have liked to see a mega-heel Canadian faction consisting of the Un-Americans, Benoit, and Jericho. That would have been great, but it probably would have left SD! in a bad way. (Not like there were any plans to bring these five guys together anyway, I don't think) :)
David Crockett sez it best, folks: "Look at 'im! Look at 'im, Tony!"
I don't think Styles is going to putting over a lot of guys, I think they just don't have a tv show right now so the only people watching are the people who already like Styles, so a loss is not going to hurt him.
