Speculation on WWE Rehashing an Attitude Era Stable, Rob Van Dam Banged Up Overseas

– We heard a report that Rob Van Dam may have hurt his shoulder at last Wednesday’s WWE live event in Glasgow but he has worked every event on the tour since then so he appears to be fine.

– Bryan Alvarez of noted that it was suggested to someone by him within WWE that perhaps the company is planning on doing a new storyline similar to the Nation of Domination. This isn’t a confirmed plan or anything but it was mentioned by someone in WWE when talking about how Rusev had wins over Xavier Woods, R-Truth and Kofi Kingston, and is now apparently feuding with Big E.

  • Chris E.

    I like it. The stable idea is great when they don’t go overboard. 3MB has to be the worst stable ever and they seem to make that work so they should be able to pull this off.

  • Timothy Davis

    I absolutely love this idea and I have been wanting to see a heel Kofi for a couple years now. This could be his launching point if he can pull it off.

  • Johhny

    from what i have seen they are trying to create a buzz! if you will…no blood still no chair shots ect wrestling is blood and chair shots i mean atleast in the 90’s it was …sure you had your technical guys like bret hart ect

  • john

    that would be great lol…however to many people are crybabies these days.they would have a fit but in all honesty wwe needs something because there product sucks these days

  • john

    would be cool but at least have the original theme,i mean you want to bring fans back right well here you go you have a chance…don’t blow this

  • john

    the job squad….it has been done to

  • Dan

    I think being in a “yank” company could potentially make it better, due to the fact that they get to be heels on the pure basis that they’re English, can cut promo’s on how a small island nation used to own the USA, “Britannia rules the ring!”. My only issue would be they start adding non-British people into it putting on bad English accents, though I could handle people from the Commonwealth being added.

  • Mike Wells

    I’ve said they should do NOD for a while. Big E pretty much wears the colours anyway. Get him, Mark Henry (original member), R-Truth (he’s had enough of the fans) and Xavier Woods with Faarooq as manager.

  • TheFizPop

    If done in a non yank company then yes! But we all know americans re-write history to concur with their own misguided beliefs on factual/historical accuracy

  • TheFizPop

    I bet D Sterling becomes the manager of Rusev when the Nation re-form!

  • Kristopher Robinson

    Is JTG still with the company?

  • Dan

    Forget the Nation, have a “British Empire” stable – Bad News Barrett, Drew McIntyre, Adrian Neville and Paige, managed by William Regal.

  • d_pooch

    I still like the idea of a disgruntled loser stable, which could include guys like Zack Ryder, The Miz, Damien Sandow and possibly Dolph Ziggler…

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    I’d be cool with a new Nation stable, I just don’t know how it’d work in PG WWE. If it was me i’d have

    Mark Henry (makes sense as he’s an original member)
    Titus O’Neill
    Big E
    JTG (The guy hasn’t had a break since Cryme Tyme, I’d love to see him back doing something)

    Ron Simmons – Manager

    Plus if Dwayne/Rock came back after doing a movie that’d make great tv

    This new “reality era” WWE says they’re entering is eerily similar to the way the attitude era slowly became what it was in the late 90’s. It wouldn’t surprise me if we see a lot of re-hashed ideas from the attitude era in general. It’s almost like a second “attitude” era, though I doubt it will be as monumental and shocking as the first.
