It looks like WWE’s plans to debut a new stable are moving forward as scheduled.
Last week I first reported about plans to have MVP to manage a group of Superstars that have been underutilized with the idea being that he will give them the confidence to focus on winning championships.
This week on Raw, MVP teamed up with Brendan Vick and Shane Thorne against R-Truth, Cedric Alexander and Ricochet. MVP’s team lost when he was pinned by R-Truth. After the match, Bobby Lashley attacked Truth and he and MVP decided that they would have a talk backstage. Earlier, MVP spoke with Lashley about getting his confidence back and setting his sights on winning a major championship, which is something he hasn’t done since his first run over a decade ago.
Based on this, it looks like Lashley will be challenging for Drew McIntyre’s WWE Championship in the near future with MVP as his manager. It remains to be seen who else will join the stable but, as I reported last week, the current plan is for Apollo Crews to turn heel.
If the plan is to elevate some more underutilized wrestlers for the stable then Cedric and Ricochet would be great candidates. I should note that it was not told to me that they would be part of the stable.
On a related note, Lashley and MVP were aligned in 2014 as part of The Beat Down Clan along with Kenny King.
