I like the idea of the swerve type deal. And it would finally give an explanation for this BS of "a higher purpose". But the only way I would want Orton to be the leader of Nexus is if he kicked Wade, Otunga, Gabriel & Slater out of the group changed the name to something better and added Ted & or Cody.

Randy being the leader of a bunch of schmucks would be worst than the let down of Legacy never being booked to look good.

I think that Randy being Nexus' leader would completely ruin his character, and screw the fans, rather than Cena, as who would be the company's main face for the kiddies? And not just the kiddies, Randy is everyones face at the moment.

And Randy should NOT get back together with Ted and Cody. This would be a no-win situation, and pull them all down, and prevent Ted and Cody from having separate feuds. They only broke up 8 months ago, and Ted and Cody will lose all their momentum.
Why do people think they need to get back together? Triple H didn't bring any DX members to Evolution, and Hulk Hogan hasn't brought any nWo members to Immortal (though if Nash comes back, they might half-arse it). Pretty much all dominent factions that try to reunite have failed.

Rated, not taking a shot or anything, but u said in an earlier blog (WM27 picks) u want Legacy to reunite. Were u big fans of them or something?

I believe (and hope) that it is Randy who gets screwed by Cena, and Cena fully joins Nexus.

Option 5: After outside interference by Miz who has come out to screw Orton, Cena counts the 1 2 3 on Orton. Cena raises Barrett's arm in victory becoming free of Nexus, but turns it into an AA. Miz enters the ring giving his briefcase to Cena and Cena counts to three and the Miz leaves SS World Heavyweight Champion. FREE Screwjob: Orton and Barrett are screwed by Miz and Cena

I have stated hundreds of times that I want Legacy back together. I'll probably say it hundreds of times more. They had in my opinion the coolest gimmick a stable could be given(multi-generational superstars forming a faction to dominate because they were born to be in the business and born with that raw talent and born better than everyone else). The problem I have and what makes me want to see them get back together is how horribly they failed with that group. They completly dropped the ball and it never was what it could've and should've been. So I want them to be given a second chance and get the push they should've gotten the first time around. They would be much more successful and therefore I believe that it wouldn't be a step down for any of them because they would be going back and re-writing a less than stellar point in their careers.

And as for Triple H bringing a DX member to Evolution or Hogan bringing an NWo guy to Immortal... I never said anything about bringing a guy from another group Orton was in to Legacy. DX & NWO have reunited on a sh## load of occassions and although maybe not as good as the original they have been money makers and interesting parts of the show regardless. All I'm talking about is putting the original 3 back together with one or two guys added. Give them all the titles and let them be the dominate group in WWE that runs RAW and comes out in suits and "brings class" to the WWE. They were never a unit(allies) they were always at eachothers throats and never got along, it was all about Randy and having Ted & Cody help him win and retain the WWE Title. Randy was the member who didn't need the push while Ted & Cody were put in the group so they could be brought up to the main event and they didn't do that with either of them.

How would it be a step down for either Ted or Cody to be involved in a scenario like that when they haven't done anything since Legacy. Cody won a Tag Title that is not important with a guy he should never have even teamed with. And Ted up until Monday has been wasting away as a guy who doesn't appear every week and came out with his fathers old gimmick.

Roam you actually have a pretty good thought yourself. I was kind of thinking the same thing. Although I figured it would go that Cena would help Wade win some how just so he could keep his job without turning heel or looking like a bad guy(somehow Orton would get distracted and Wade would capitalize and Cena would count the 3). Than afterwards Cena would AA Barrett and Miz would come down and cash in to become Champion.



And I'm going to throw in option 6(I believe thats what we're up to) lol. This one wont happen in a million years but this is what I would love to see happen and I'm going to expand it to past Survivor Series.

At Survivor Series Orton defends against Barrett and Orton hits the RKO. Cena looks reluctant and starts to count. He stops before 3 and Orton stares at him. Cena says he can't do it. Orton RKOs Cena and stands over him annoyed. Wade would connect with Wasteland and go for the pin. Cena is still out and Wade waves to the back. Michael McGuillicutty runs down in a referees shirt and slides in. He makes the count 1... 2... and he stops. Wade & McGuillicutty stare at one another as Wade yells what are you doing? Wade gets up and yells at McGuillicutty and tells him to count to 3. Ted DiBiase(winning the US Title earlier in the show) runs down and hands Randy the WWE Title. Wade turns around and Randy cracks the title over his skull. McGuillicutty makes the 3 count. Randy wins and Ted & Michael raise his arms in the ring.

Otunga, Slater, Harris & Gabriel run down and circle them. Wade gets up and joins in the circling. Wade orders the attack but Harris turns and clotheslines Slater. Wade, Otunga & Gabriel are distracted by this and Orton, Ted & Michael jump them. The four third generation stars beat down Nexus and stand tall in the ring. John Cena gets to his knees and realization sets in. Randy grabs a mic. and asks whats wrong with John? He says you know Survivor Series is famous for Screw Jobs. And going into tonight they were guaranteed a screw job. Either Cena would screw me out of the WWE Title or Cena would screw himself out of his job. Well John I came up with a third option... I screwed you John. I put you out of the WWE. But you should really be thanking me Cena because now you atleast get to go out with all of your fans knowing that you never gave up. Randy declares that these people here tonight are a part of history... tonight marks the re-birth of the Legacy. Cena walks out upset as Legacy celebrates to end the show.

The following night on RAW, Legacy comes down and Orton talks about how he set this plan in motion months ago. Shortly after the debut of the Nexus and that he recruited Harris & McGuillicutty while they were still on NXT season 2. He got them to join the Nexus and help drive Cena into the match at Survivor Series while manipulating Barrett and Nexus. And now he has finally gotten rid of Cena. His greatest rival is gone from the WWE and its all because of his Legacy. McGuillicutty & Harris are given time to explain themselves and say that while they were put on NXT season 2 the WWE changed their names so that they would own them. They knew we would become huge stars and they wanted to make sure they could make all the money off of us. They reveal their real names are Joe Hennig and Duke Rotunda. Nexus would interupt setting up an 8-man tag later in the night which Legacy would win.

At TLC, Hennig & Rotunda would defeat Slater & Gabriel to become WWE Tag Team Champions.

The following night on RAW, Legacy would come to the ring and Orton would talk about them controlling all the gold and being the most dominant faction in WWE history and that they have done everything they have set out to do. But tonight he wants to welcome the newest member of the Legacy... a multi-generational superstar and a man he knows quite well. Hes coming over from SmackDown! through a loophole in his contract... making he return to the Legacy... Cody Rhodes. Cody comes to the ring and stands in line with Hennig, DiBiase & Rotunda. Orton paces back and forth infront of them and says they will continue to dominate RAW and that there is just one thing left to do. He stops and RKOs Rotunda. Randy says that Duke was never one of them, he used him to orchestrait this whole thing and that Duke could never be one of them. Hes a fat, redneck slob... and the Legacy is all about class. Randy tells them to get him out of his ring. Cody & Joe throw Rotunda out of the ring and Randy picks up the Tag Team title. Randy hands it to Cody and says that everything is exactly where it belongs. They line up and hold up the titles in the ring.

From here Rotunda could come back and take one of the titles. Randy would demand the RAW GM have it returned but because he is officially one of the champions the GM decides to make a match at the Royal Rumble. Cody & Joe against Duke and a partner of his choosing and the winners would be the WWE Tag Team Champions. Duke's partner would be revealed as his brother Bo. And at the Royal Rumble Ted would held Cody & Joe become Champions. Legacy would dominate RAW and hold all of the titles up until WrestleMania where Cena(returning at the Rumble) could beat Randy in the epic one on one encounter to become Champion and get his revenge. They could continue to dominate RAW for another year or two after this.

This would create two new tag teams, a much better faction than Nexus and a much better version of Legacy. It would create a lot of buzz because of the swerves involved. And Orton & Cena could finally have their epic one on one encounter at Mania.

Never gonna happen but a guy can dream can't he.

I see not one but two screwjobs this sunday.Orton is gonna hit the RKO and go for the pin but Cena will be reluctant to count 3 and either will not count at all or count really slow for Barrett to kick out.Cena and Orton start arguing and Barrett takes advantage .Barret hits wasteland ,covers Orton and Cena counts to 3.Screwed Individual # 1-Randy Orton.

As Barett's celebrating,Cena attacks Barrett ,AA and STF.The Miz comes out with his briefcase and a referee of his own .Cena is forced to vacate the ring .The Miz hits the Skull Crushing Finale and wins the championship with Orton watching standing near the announce table.Screwed Individual # 2 -Wade Barrett

As Miz is celebrating,Orton slithers in the ring and hits the RKO to end the show.

Great ideas! i totally forgot about the Miz... I love the option 5 added above!  Am i right that the Miz currently does not have a match at SS?

Option 6, while also great is unlikely i think... Barrett is a natural heel, he aint turning face anytime soon (which is what would have to happen for option 6 to come true)

LOL he could be heel still. He would get screwed by another heel(Orton) just like in option 5(Miz). Legacy wouldn't feud with Nexus really. By TLC Nexus could disolve after losing the match at SS, losing the Tag Titles, and 2 of their members. The group would break up and Barrett could go on to be a singles guy in the mid-card... or move to SmackDown!

Just a quick thought to add into the mix (as I'm pretty tired right now) I've heard Cena is taking a break so don't be shocked if Orton picks up the win and Cena gets "fired" Vince isn't one for taking risks anymore and whilst it would be great for Orton or Cena to turn heel again I really doubt he would do that for Cena (his biggest seller) plus the hype for a return would be huge

There was rumors not long ago about Y2J returning around December, maybe they will have him return early to screw Orton for punting him in the head, allowing Barrett to pick up the win. Like KingOfKings said, I doubt Vince would risk his merch sales and one of the biggest draws. I would mark out if he was to return early!!

I disagree.
Yes, this would be a good gimmick, and yes they did it wrong, but bringing them back together wouldn't solve this, and they didn't push the idea enough that they are born into the business.

You say Cody and Ted haven't done much. They have. Cody has been given a massive push as a singles competitor, which was briefly held back by the thrown-together tag-team reign, but now he is getting it again. Just cause he hasn't actually won a singles title yet doesn't mean he hasnt done well.

Ted has not been pushed as much, but more so than when he was in Legacy. I think HE would be the ideal one to lead the faction of the 'fortunate sons', as per the original storyline plan, possibly after Nexus disbands. And they have learnt from their mistakes, so they may pull it off properly this time.

Think about it, how can they go back to factions/tag-teams again, when they were in for their entire WWE careers until this year? That would just further delay their singles success, and they'll have to start from scratch again when it ends.

BUT it may work for Ted if he is the Leader, and still gets a singles push.

Randys character would be destroyed (changed again for 4th time) if Legacy reforms.

This is my view, and thats yours. They're sorta the same, but u want the original Legacy for furtunate sons but i want different people.

I actually like the name the fortunate sons a lot better than Legacy. And I would agree that if they put them back together and did the same bs they did the first go around that it would be a step down for all of them. But if done the way it should've been the first time all of them would be more important. If you look back at the history of Tag Teams most teams that spun out a successful singles guy were together for a good chunk of time. Cody & Ted have a good 15 years ahead of them. Why must they be singles guys that entire time. Allow them to be built up to that point. They could be ten time tag team champions and 5 time IC Champs before they ever become World Champion. Look at Edge... the guy had about 8 years in the company before he was given a world title. Pushing Cody & Ted to the main event right now is not needed. I think if anything it hurts them, because after they win the World Title what is there left to do? Win the World Title 20 times? It would be pretty pathetic if in 5 to 10 years we've got 20 guys with 20 world title reigns under their belt. And with the rate Cena & Orton are going it looks pretty likely that that'll be the case.

So Ted & Cody taking a step back and becoming Tag Champs again and winning them like 4 more times together and staying together for 2 more years as part of the most dominant faction in a decade(if pushed right) and rebuilding a division that has been lacking and could really use the push that these guys would be getting(if done right). They could bring the division back to the forefronts and they could be getting pushed more than they are now by doing so. The Hardys, New Age Outlaws, Dudleys, E&C, etc. were all bigger stars than either one of Ted & Cody are at this point and they were in Tag Teams for quite some time before splitting up.

It doesn't hurt them to be in Legacy again if they actually pushed them the right way. Hell Batista went from being World Tag Team Champions with Flair to being World Champion as a part of Evolution. Ted & Cody could be spun out of Legacy into the World Title picture if they were with Orton for 2 years and held titles throughout those 2 years and actually got to look good.

I think if Ted were to lead a group after Nexus disbanded it should be Money Inc. 2.0 with The Rotunda Brothers. The sons of the original Money Inc. forming a team would be cool in my opinion.
