10 Times WWE Capitalised On Low Expectations

The times WWE had their backs to the wall, yet were still able to send the fans home happy.


It seems futile to expect anything from WWE these days.

Over the past few years, WWE have outright failed to match the expectations of their fans in high-profile matches such as Shinsuke Nakamura vs AJ Styles, and Seth Rollins vs The Fiend. Sometimes, WWE actively weaponise fan desires, such as at the Royal Rumble 2017, which inexplicably saw Roman Reigns be revealed as the 'big surprise' number 30 entrant, in one of the most obvious examples of the company trolling the fans in history.

There are other times, where fan expectations begin low, and WWE seem give up on exceeding them, providing fans with disasters such as Roman Reigns vs Triple H at WrestleMania 32, Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 34, and Kurt Angle vs Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35.

However, sometimes, our expectations of WWE are so low, that Vince McMahon and co. are able to use them to their advantage. Often, the right amount of fan ire, external circumstances or even general wisdom, can result in us fans making presumptions which WWE are able to exploit to create magic.

These such times are examples of that.
