In my opinion, the stable that would eventually become Evolution is one of if not the greatest faction in WWE history second only to Degeneration-X. The stable consisted of Randy Orton, Triple H, Batista, and Ric Flair, and for the better part of two years dominated Monday Night Raw. In the summer of 2004 though things began change as cracks formed in the group after Randy Orton did what Triple H couldn't and that was beat Chris Benoit for the World Title. The night after Orton beat Benoit he was kicked out of Evolution and immediately thrust into a feud with his former stablemates.
Though the feud was a great idea it failed in practice for many reasons namely the fact that I'm not sure Orton was ready to be a good guy right away and that maybe slowly turning him would've been a better idea. Either way we will retrace the steps of WWE creative from Summerslam 2004 to Wrestlemania 2005 and try to do it better. Think about this after the failed face run Randy went on and had the best run of his career as a heel and plus he gave The Undertaker is best match/feud since returning as The Deadman.
