Squared Circle: Six Months after... Leaving Evolution vs. Leaving Legacy
Armageddon 2003 - Evolution Holds All The Gold

I think most of us made the comparisons throughout last year.

Legacy were the new Evolution. Yet, apart from Randy Orton being in both teams, they were nothing alike.

Evolution was successful and came over as a true stable. The team collectively won six World Championships (Five with Triple H and One with Orton), two World Tag Team Championships (Flair and Batista), two Intercontinental Championships (One with Orton and One with Flair) and a Royal Rumble (Batista in 2005).

They came over as a well-oiled unit.

Now compare this with Legacy's success. Three WWE Championships (Orton) and a Royal Rumble (Once again Orton in 2009).

Unlike Evolution, which built up their younger stars' reputations during their time in the group, Legacy was all about Randy Orton. He won all the championships, while DiBiase and Rhodes were left to take the beatings.

What the teams did have in common was a goal to get their two young stars ready for main-event status some time in the future. This article will look at Orton and Batista's first six months away from Evolution vs. DiBiase's and Rhodes' first six months away from Legacy.
