A Potential Addition To The Legacy

Gevorg KeoseyanContributor IMay 5, 2009

Ever since the dawning of the current calender year, several names have been thrown around regarding potential additions to The Legacy stable currently consisting of WWE Champion Randy Orton, Ted DiBiase Jr, and Cody Rhodes.

Sim Snuka was never really an official member, and Manu just did not fit the description: When you look at the perfectly chiseled bodies of Orton, DiBiase, and Rhodes; a heavy-set Manu just does not work.

Nevertheless, several names of other multi-generational stars have also been mentioned as potential additions through various rumors and discussion boards. These include DH Smith (who is now in ECW possibly forming the New Hart Foundation with Tyson Kidd and Natalya), Shane McMahon, and Stephanie McMahon. Sure, each and every one of these names could have been added to Legacy if WWE creative deemed it necessary, but there are two other possibilities that have not been discussed that would fit perfectly.

The first possibility is Joe Hennig, the son of the late great Mr. Perfect. The PWI 2008 Rookie of the Year made an immediate impact in WWE developmental, winning the FCW tag titles and later on, the FCW Heavyweight Title. The young Hennig has the look, mean streak, and developing a tremendous ability to execute his moves ala his Mr. Perfect.

Unfortunately, Joe Hennig suffered a serious injury about a month back, so that stunts any possible upgrade to the main WWE roster in the near future. Yet if Legacy thrives and achieves some longevity, don't be surprised to see Joe Hennig added to the stable upon his full recovery.

The second of the two possibilities is Brett DiBiase, one of the two brothers of Ted DiBiase Jr. Brett, who is in FCW, may still have a ways to go before he enters the main WWE roster, but an opening lies in the Ted Jr.'s "The Marine 2" movie release.

With recent talks, including rumors that Ted Jr. may turn face to promote his movie release, who better to replace a DiBiase than another DiBiase.

I feel that The Legacy will reign supreme throughout the entire calendar year and possibly into 2010, I do not feel as though the current lineup will remain unchanged.
