Evolution: Any process of formation and growth.


Let this be a note to WWE decision makers, a young fourth member must be added to Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton's alliance for this comeback run to be successful. Evolution is what got Orton and Batista to be believable stars. Now it's time to pay it forward.

I like Evolution. They were a success when they were around and were a success at what the group set out to accomplish. The same goals should be applied to this run. In addition to adding someone, they need to help put over this roster of young guys, many who are on the verge of breaking out.

There are a few options as to who could be added to the group.

The most likely and realistic option I think is Bo Dallas.

The NXT star has been teased for his main roster re-debut for a few weeks. His catchphrase is BO-Lieve. Triple H's final words to The Shield on Raw were “believe in Evolution.” It would make a lot of sense and certainly do more for Dallas' career than a two week feud with Wade Barrett.

A more creative and flashy move would be the swerve of a Dean Ambrose or Seth Rollins joining the group.

It would do great things to fuel the fire and build to an eventual Roman Reigns versus Triple H match. However, with Rollins and Ambrose having been in an original stable for the past year and a half, I don't know if joining another one which is on a comeback tour is the best decision for their career.

A wild card pick which could be tossed in the fantasy booking hat is Charlotte.

Yes, a WWE Diva in Evolution. But she's not just any Diva, she's the daughter of Ric Flair, an original member of Evolution. This would be fitting due to who her father is, but also fits with the freshness WWE is trying to add to the Divas division. Calling up Charlotte to be in Evolution and letting her go after the Divas' title would certainly be favorable booking for that division and championship.

Put over The Shield, namely Reigns, and put over a young talent by association. Those are the two goals. If those goals aren't met, the 34, 44 and 45-year-old being back together in a group whose gimmick is centered around being generations of the business represented is pointless.
