<p>Yeah, build them gradually on Thunder.</p><p> </p><p>

Here's an idea I really liked back when it was posted in 01/02 on 1wrestling.com:</p><p> </p><p>

WWF had just won the war with ECWCW and had huge numbers of workers under contract. The suggestion was that the storyline be written with Scott Levy as the representative for all of the cruiserweights in the company. He'd negotiate contracts, matches, and so on - basically being the business manager for the whole group.</p><p> </p><p>

With Levy as their mouthpiece, the company could really put over these guys who were something brand new to WWF (the LH division was in no way as big a part of the company as the cruisers had been in WCW). Having the GM (Flair at the time) really making a big deal out of trying to get the cruisers to be a part of WWF after they were almost all 'fired' would have got them over big time. </p><p> </p><p>

So, a variation on that could be to have your youth movement be spearheaded by a respected veteran (Curt Hennig? The Cat? Even Levy himself) with mic skills and overness. He negotiates for appearances for the young guys on Nitro in return for favours - bigger names appear on Thunder to help train up the younger guys, for example, or PPV title shots. Have ultra-babyfaces like Mysterio or Goldberg supporting the move because it gets these kids the chances they deserve. Heels like Luger and Nash can exploit the kids, either as disposable layers of protection or as an 'in' to the next generation if they worry about being passed by.</p>
