Even the staunchest WWE loyalist will admit that WWE television is in something of a rut right now. Historically the months between WrestleMania and SummerSlam are a time of place-holding and treading water, but this lethargy seems to have been around since the end of 2013 and Daniel Bryan’s perpetual screwing. RAW in particular has become not just boring, but legitimately difficult to watch.
Predictability in itself isn’t always bad, but there’s only so many times a show can follow a formula that was tired from the beginning before you simple decide to switch off.
This isn’t to say the situation is unsalvageable however. In many ways, WWE is in a great position, it just hasn’t managed to put the pieces together for a while. In the following article I will look at five ways in which WWE can put together an objectively better product.
It’s easy to slip into fantasy booking with such articles sometimes, so I will resist the usual unlikely options and stick to realism. John Cena isn’t turning heel, RAW is sticking to three hours and Dolph Ziggler will rule the midcard for years to come. Let’s get into it.
Born in the middle of Wales in the middle of the 1980's, John can't quite remember when he started watching wrestling but he has a terrible feeling that Dino Bravo was involved. Now living in Prague, John spends most of his time trying to work out how Tomohiro Ishii still stands upright. His favourite wrestler of all time is Dean Malenko, but really it is Repo Man. He is the author of 'An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery', the best book about the Slavic people that you haven't yet read. You can get that and others from www.poshlostbooks.com.
