10 Epic Million Dollar Ideas WWE Refuse To Use

How can they not book Stone Cold vs Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania?

WWE are in an era that is calling out for just one big idea to ignite business. It has always been that way in wrestling history, with boom periods hinging on creative genius or technological innovation. Just look at how the arrival of pay per view opened up huge money, or how the risky storylines of the 'Attitude Era' gave Vince McMahon his most successful years. That's what today's wrestling scene needs, a bold new vision. The WWE Network was an attempt at that. McMahon believed pay per view was a dead business model, but the irony is that 2015 has been the most successful year in pay per view industry history. Floyd Mayweather set a high of 4.4 million buys for his fight with Manny Pacquiao, and UFC are having their best PPV year since Brock Lesnar left. Fighters like Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor are doing near million buy rates. So the WWE Network idea hasn't really panned out, with disappointing subscriber numbers, and the remaining PPV industry on revitalised fire. The big shame is that WWE actually have a genuine PPV star in Brock Lesnar, but he's now stuck on a $9.99 streaming service. However, the next big success is only ever just around the corner. The following are epic million dollar idea that could be WWE's real answer to a boost in business, but for reasons that will be explained, the company will never do them.
