So, let's say the WWE Network bankrupts the company. Do you think such a thing is even possible? And if so, what happens to all that footage they've collected over the years? Does a Hulu, Netflix or Amazon buy that content in an attempt to lure the 600,000 WWE Network subscribers to their service (or to pay for an additional service?).
1. I know it seems like WWE just cut a lot of dead weight, but do you think maybe they should have hung on to one or two of those guys? McIntyre seemed pegged to be THE guy at one point and probably could have been rebuilt with distance from 3MB (and some actual effort, so clearly I'm deluding myself). Camacho never really got much of a fair shake at all, and Brodus was screwed from day one by a comedy gimmick with a limited ceiling and then never got the courtesy of even getting to appear on TV to test the waters after the heel turn. Would you have given any of those three (or any of the others) a stay of execution, or were they all just too far gone to be reclamation projects?
2. Do you think we'll ever see any of those guys again? Personally, I think Bourne will likely receive a hero's welcome back to ROH, and McIntyre could be a top guy for Global Force when and if that's ever a viable option. Hawkins/Tatsu/JTG would all be solid hands in the X-Division if any of them want to get on TNA's sinking ship. Where do you think some of them will/should end up?
3. Even though none of these guys are tremendous losses to WWE, how are they going to cut McIntyre and Clay but keep useless slugs like Khali and Otunga employed? Or are there more cuts coming? I know if I were Zack Ryder or Justin Gabriel I wouldn't be sleeping very soundly for a while.
So, I figure I’ll make this its own thread.
In tonight’s Raw Rant (down there), I reviewed the Raw Pre-Show. I’m happy to do it, but if you think it’s not necessary and just detracts, I understand.
So… should I or shouldn’t I? Please vote below. Voting stays open as long as I can remember it.
Well you knew this would happen.
I believe this might make some money. Just a hunch.
