“I named them, and I’ll probably tell you that another time or two just to be clear,” Anderson said. “The goal and this group of guys – there was a decision and Vince had us all in there when he listened to us. This was back at a time prior to Randy, Batista, or Cena getting their push.
“He had all this new talent he’d brought in, and he said, ‘Guys, who are gonna be our stars of tomorrow? Who do you guys think so far that have it?’ And it was Cena, Randy, and Dave. That’s what everyone pretty much agreed on.
“Cena was gonna be split off by himself, and I think the company saw an opportunity to take Dave and Randy, who needed to have a more seasoned talent guiding them which could be Hunter and Ric, and they saw an opportunity because those guys looked like a trillion dollars together when they came through the curtain all dressed to the nines.
“It was just a good combination of old and new, and you had a chance to get a couple of new guys over really quickly. I thought that concept worked, and I thought those guys worked really well together.”
