10 Evolving Changes That Haven't Been Good For WWE

10. Lack Of Competition

Ever since World Championship Wrestling went to the wall in March, 2001, Vince McMahon has largely had the pro wrestling market all to himself. On the surface, it may have looked like all was rosy in paradise, mainly because McMahon now owned what had been his biggest competitor, but it has had an adverse effect on WWE overall. Since 2002, TNA have tried to paint themselves as the other biggest fish in the grappling ocean, but the fact of the matter is that they have never once come close to properly going head-to-head with WWE. In 2010, the company tried to reinvent the wheel by trying to revisit the 'Monday Night Wars', but it was an unmitigated disaster, and the promotion were quickly found out for being relative minnows compared to the monopolistic WWE. This lack of real competition has hurt WWE, because there's little to keep them on their toes. Previously, when WCW introduced Monday Nitro and started kicking McMahon's ass from late-1996 till early-1998, the then-WWF had to stay sharp, because there was a real threat of going out of business if they didn't. That's not the case now, allowing WWE to be lazy with creating new stars and coming up with original ideas.
