Attitude Era fans should be smiling from ear to ear as John Laurinaitis continues to build the 2012 version of Vince and Shane McMahon's Corporation.
In 1999, the Corporation was a fearsome heel stable that helped ignite some of the greatest feuds, moments and angles in wrestling history.
Despite some attempts in previous years, WWE just hasn't had that one supreme and dominant authoritative faction that many of us grew up despising. We're finally getting it back, as Laurinaitis has the likes of Big Show, Eve, Lord Tensai and David Otunga joining him as he runs both RAW and SmackDown.
Many people are starting to take notice, and part of the fun over the next few weeks will be to see who else he can get to join his group. Perhaps the likes of Cody Rhodes or even newcomer Dean Ambrose will cement their affiliation with Johnny Ace.
Let's face it—wrestling is always better when the heels are in control. We love to hate them and even more, we love to see our heroes fight tooth and nail to put them out of their misery. We pay to see the heels get beat down. Even John Cena haters have taken a bit of a backseat as he feuds with the boss.
It may be under different circumstances (Vince and Shane owned WWE, whereas Johnny Ace just works for higher management), but it will still be effective. With monsters Show and Tensai, a legal expert in Otunga and a seductress in Eve backing him, this is one of the most well-rounded stables created in more than a decade.
This is exactly what we needed in 2012, and it will bring back nostalgic moments of the Attitude Era as we see the likes of Cena and CM Punk try to take down the regime.
Sit back, folks, because this is going to be a hell of a roller coaster!
