Stars in Progress: HHH Era, Shelley, JTG Wins, SummerSlam

Chris Cash

WWE SummerSlam is tonight and I'm forcing myself to expect very little. I figure that's the best way to get more than I expected. Be sure to tune into "VOW Reaction" tonight, immediately following the pay per view, as Nick Paglino and I run break down the show. Visit VOWLive.com for more details.

In the meantime…

ALEX SHELLEY — One Step Up

It's a step up, but a small one for now.

I really like Alex Shelley, but I absolutely loved the Motor City Machine Guns. Two very good individual wrestlers creating magic when put together. I'm afraid there might always be something missing in my eyes when the two are separated. I hope that's not the case.

How will WWE handle Shelley? That's another big part of this equation. He is a "TNA guy" by now and without an X Division equivalent or a tag team partner, it wouldn't surprise me if he gets lost in the shuffle, and fast.

Maybe Chris Braden-Walker-Harris could give him some pointers.
