Evolution were dominant 10 years ago. Now, the group has lost all of their recent PPV matches.
Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista dominated the WWE for many years. Even when Batista went on a four-year hiatus, Orton and Triple H continued to hog the spotlight. That is until 2014 when fans started to rebel against the WWE, wanting to see some new faces.
Ever since the Royal Rumble, the WWE started to elevate new talent and guys like Evolution started to take a backseat. Triple H lost cleanly to Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania XXX. Orton and Batista also lost to Bryan on the very same night. The fans were sent home happy.
The next month at Extreme Rules, Evolution took on The Shield. Evolution reuniting after 10 years was a huge deal. It seemed like they would dominate the WWE again. That didn’t happen as the Shield beat them cleanly. It seemed evident that they would get their revenge.
A rematch was set for Payback just one month later. I was certain that Evolution would win this encounter. Also, this was an elimination match, so all members of the team had to get out. The Shield won that match in brutal fashion without even losing any members. Evolution surprisingly took the fall in three straight PPV events. Not to mention, Batista is now gone for a few months.
My question is where does Triple H and Orton go from here? They’ve looked like jobbers ever since WrestleMania XXX. Do they continue facing Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins, or they they find new opponents for themselves?
