Legacy is what Alberto Del Rio needs to build upon his legacy.

At the Tables, Ladders and Chairs pay per view, Del Rio proved that he can hang with the big boys as he worked a title match against Kane, Edge and Rey Mysterio. While he didn't win the title, he did win the approval of a lot of the audience.

However, he needs just a little bit more.

That little bit is Legacy. The stable was once designed to be a tool to elevate Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase. The two were aligned with Randy Orton in an attempt to fast forward their pushes towards the main event scene.

The execution didn't work, but the idea still might.

The idea behind the Legacy stable was that every member was a second or third generation superstar. Rhodes and DiBiase are the sons of the legendary "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes and "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase respectively. Well, Del Rio happens to be a second generation wrestler himself, being the son of Dos Caras.

Rhodes and DiBiase are stuck in the mid card scene right now. They need someone to guide them. Del Rio has established enough screen presence to take on a leadership role. He can provide what Rhodes and DiBiase need right now.

A lot of WWE fans hate TNA for recycling stories and gimmicks, but the Legacy stable is one that might be worth revisiting.
