With great hype comes great expectations. With great expectations comes the potential for great disappointment.
When word broke that Mistico was on his way to WWE, a lot of fans, many of whom had never even seen his work in Mexico, began proclaiming his greatness. Now known as Sin Cara, he has failed to live up to those lofty expectations, and a lot of fans have chalked him up as "a disappointment."
Based on the initial reaction from the Internet Wrestling Community, there's a lot of hype and expectations towards Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose after they attacked Ryback at the Survivor Series. With some fans going as far as to say that a new era has been ushered into WWE, there's a high potential for disappointment.
Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose established themselves as superb performers on the independent wrestling circuit, and Roman Reigns has family ties to the Samoan wrestling families. They're more than likely going to do well in WWE, but it's going to be virtually impossible for them to live up to the hype that has already been created by the fans.
A few fans have already begun comparing this yet to be named group to the nWo, which just happens to be one of the most compelling wrestling storylines of this generation.
If Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns aren't involved with CM Punk and Paul Heyman on Monday Night Raw, you're going to figuratively hear a collective groan from the Internet Wrestling Community tonight.
WWE isn't purposely setting these guys up for failure, as that would not be beneficial towards the business. However, they're now in a delicate position to where they may inadvertently do that.
