Here's the thing with WWE. Vince does hold guys back who organically get over with the fans. But of they STAY over in spite of that because of their tenacity and hunger (CM Punk, Daniel Bryan did it, and I feel like Ziggler is on the cusp), then he eventually gives them the ball. The problem with the current roster is that it's just super full of really talented guys that are completely happy to just collect a paycheck and never rise above the lower midcard.
I think it's also that beyond the guys you mentioned, and dudes like Cesaro, those indy guys they shit on....you have guys that don't KNOW how to overcome the bad booking. They just know what they're WWE masters taught them to do. Plus it's just STUPID to be throwing buckets of cold water on guys that are over simply because Vince wants to be a fucking child and say "oh no, no getting over unless I let you! My sandbox, mine!"
So the question is going to be... how bad do Ryback, Rowan and Harper want to impress the "Universe". From what they've shown with their run in the Wyatt family, I think Harper has the in-ring skills to get over for sure. We have yet to see what their mic skills will become, so they could actually be great if they take full advantage of this push.
Harper is very reminiscent of that Bruiser Brody style monster....plus he just has that special something that just looking at him he holds your attention and you want to see what he'll do. I was against the Wyatts breaking up because I thought there was way more money there, and because I really fear Rowan will quickly get lost in the shuffle.
As for the ending resulting in the Authority or team Cena being fired... I'm more of the belief that there's going to be some kind of run-in that causes the match to either get thrown out, or at the least result in the Authority winning on a technicality, then on Raw, Vince will come in and pull some shit like he doesn't feel like the authority proved themselves and make them work with another power figure, possibly Stone Cold.
God no, no no no no no. Yes, it's a free show if you go through the Network, but you're trying to sell subs, and that to me means EVERY match but ESPECIALLY the main event needs to have some kind of a finish, no non finishes here. You can do interference or some such, but I would not be throwing matches out or doing fuck finishes when I'm trying to convince people not to uncheck the renewal box a week from the big show I'm giving them for free.
One of my biggest pet peeves with WWE PPVs is just how often the main event is really undecided and ruined with a stupid run-in. I know that shit keeps stories evolving and draws out feuds, but people pay good money to watch a PPV and deserve better finishes. They can always continue the feud on TV the following Monday. If they expect people to actually pay for PPVs they need to quit booking them to where you could skip watching them and not miss any real story progression or conclusions.
Yup, that's why if they do fuck finishes, especially in the main, they are going to completely defeat the purpose of the free month.
