10 Evolving Changes That Haven't Been Good For WWE

Remember when the Royal Rumble used to mean something?

World Wrestling Entertainment stands tall as one of the most continually-successful touring brands in all of the entertainment industry. One need only look at the repeat success Vince McMahon's wrestling juggernaut has during regular jaunts over the Atlantic Ocean to the UK, WWE may not be quite the beast it once was, but it's still - without a doubt - the biggest dog in the pro wrestling yard. That's something which may never change, and there are a lot of things the promotion do right. Read any internet wrestling forum or opinion piece, and it's unlikely you'll get through without something negative, but the fact of the matter is that WWE must do more right than wrong, otherwise they'd struggle to reel in the viewership and ticket sales that they do. On the flipside, that's not to say that there haven't been problems with the company over the years, of course there have. The wrestling business is a different animal now than it was 20 years ago, entertainment in general has changed. The big question is, just how have WWE kept on top of things? There have been nuances of the product which WWE haven't addressed, something this list focuses on. Others listed have been forced issues, things WWE have simply had to put up with in an ever-changing industry, but they haven't necessarily been good for the business overall.
