the former members keep the gimmick? When the Shield broke up Ambrose and Rollins had to reinvent themselves while Roman keeps the attire, move set, and music. WWE broke up the Wyatts but Erick Rowan and Luke Harper's characters haven't changed at all.Strowman seems to be the only one who has evolved a little by giving promos now.

Poor planning and half cocked decision making.

For Roman, it was by design to try and get him over because The Shield at the time had just turned babyface and were popular with the fans.

 

For the Wyatts, I just don't think a lot of their stuff it thought out. For Braun, it is clear they wanted to separate him and give him the monster push, hence the repackaging with a new look, new theme, etc.

 

For Harper and esp. Rowan, it doesn't seem like they have much direction for either guy right now. Shame, since Harper is great.

Why break up the Wyatts when they had no direction for them? That is what does not make sense to me. Bray is a much mroe effective heel when he has his foot soldiers.

I'm with this. They should've just kept them together. I like them together and the other 2 aren't doing anything on their own but jobbing out.

I like when they all jobbed out as a unit.

Bray loses enough for the three of them.

Because VKM can make 3 individual stars and sell 3 individual t-shirts and merchandise

Yeah this is the real reason. It's the reason they do everything. They have a hand stretched in every possible direction looking for more coin.

I don't know what Harper is like in real life (the best gimmicks are the ones that kinda encapsulate who the real life person is), but if they were gonna give a biker type gimmick to someone, they shoulda give it to Harper instead of Corbin.

I don't hate Corbin as much as the rest of you guys do, but Harper could pull off the legit tough guy WAY better, IMO.

Agree 1000%.

Really wish they would have kept the cult leader direction for Wyatt rather than doing all the supernatural stuff.

And this is the second time they have haphazardly broken them up. Remember like 2 years ago when Bray let them free or whatever and Rowan was a babyface for a few weeks? Now it seems Harper is in that role.

"Will this affect how much people consume our product?"

If the answer in their minds is:

Yes = they keep consistency and do some planning

No = RANDOMNESS WHOCARESTIME!

The Shield was awesome towards the end before they broke up.

And I'm not just saying this to be an asshole but Roman needs the vest because he has awesome arms but a shitty torso, a little flabby with bitch-fits.

He needs a boobie operation like his cousin.
