The WWE has a ton of money at their disposal right, the ratings and fan morale is down the toilet and getting worse.
The big reveal Monday was basically the McMahon family is going to be more hands on now……..JESUS!
Why not throw whatever $$$ it would take to bring in Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks even CM Punk for a year as an nWo style group call them "The Illuminati" or something and have them run riot clearing out all the dead wood in the process.
The Elite are all under contract to either ROH or New Japan or a combination of both, and WWE will be trying to do exactly what you're suggesting once they're free and clear to do so. Which is shortly after Royal Rumble.
