The WWE once again finds itself in a position where a young unknown is made to explain his actions after a shocking attack.
This is status quo for the WWE, and as recently as Brad Maddox, the WWE has employed this technique form time to time to introduce new talent.
With Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins making their WWE debuts recently by attacking Ryback at Survivor Series, WWE.com is teasing their mildly-anticipated explanation as the three assailants will make their speaking debuts on RAW.
The speaking segment will be very telling as to whether or not the WWE has legitimate long-term plans for these three mystery men. There's still a strong chance that this trio is nothing more than a prop to keep Ryback busy until WrestleMania season blows over and the WWE can safely experiment with a world title run for the rising star.
Should the speech adopt the thesis of "wanting to make an impact" or "trying to make a name for one's self," the three-man attack gimmick will be destined for failure. Such clichés are uninspiring, will be easily tuned out by fans and these otherwise fresh superstars will be lumped in with every other superstar trying to do "make a name for himself."
The three young stars already have somewhat of a head of steam based on rave reviews from their work on the independent scene and/or in WWE developmental, so the WWE may have some serious potential for a dominant stable that could launch three promising careers.
Given the WWE's track record for debuting superstars only to repackage them months later, however, very little should be expected from what appears to be a makeshift group that could be expendable this time next month when Ryback gets done with them.
