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.
I know it all comes down to Vince McMahon micromanaging everything but isn’t the whole problem that they actually do WRITE five hours of TV? They could probably cut that in half by just telling the talent what to accomplish in every promo, match finish and angle – then let the wrestlers work with each other and the agents to do it “in their own voice/style”.
Did Vince Russo and Ed Ferrera intricately script every single minute of every single episode of Raw they ever wrote? I doubt it.
I’m clearly all for the hard questions so without putting NXT into the mix, which WWE PPV/Special event would you consider to be the best from this year?
Hell in a Cell? Wrestlemania?
I always thought Bret did a great job of celebrating but making it look like he just was in a fight…..maybe because it was all real (in his head).
Bonus question – with the roster they have now – shouldn’t every “network special” be filled up down the card with 3.5-4.5 star matches??? Why the mediocrity with so many talented performers on the roster???
It’s the same reason is bringing back the XFL. If you make content, people will pay crazy prices for it. It doesn’t have to be good. Is the content bubble going to burst? Sure, but who knows when that’ll happen. 2022 maybe?
We can bitch about the product and not like what’s happening on the show, but WWE isn’t going anywhere. Just wait until Disney owns the entire thing one day.
That’s ~30mins of some amazing character building stuff that could easily start or end a RAW. Do a character each week and work your way through the roster, rinse, wash, repeat. Great stuff.
…or just keep writing Baron Corbin segments 🤷♂️
