Their budget is so low and the ratings are so bad. WWE has to rely on cheap gimmicks to get the lowest possible denominator. Yeah, Attitude. But Attitude was innovative, shocking and entertaining. This new stuff is just boring and unoriginal.
- Short matches
- Main focus on Evil Authority Figures
- Top Faces doin Heel things
- Divas being regulated back to being oogled instead of put in wrestling matches in order to drive ratings
- Evil Foreigner Storylines
- Non-existent tag teams
Rejoice friends! The Attitude Era is back!
HERE. WE. GOOOOOOO~
Summer of 2013 into Summer of 2014 were garbage. WWE has never let me down so consistently in all of the years I’ve been a fan. I don’t know what their problem was. From the Summer of 2011 into the Summer of 2013 were golden. I think this Night of Champions is truly the “season opener” PPV and it will say a lot about the next year’s quality. So far, nothing exciting is booked besides the Cena/Lesnar rematch. I hope something absolutely crazy happens. Maybe Heyman will turn on Brock and this will set up Roman vs Brock. Or Sting will debut and set up Sting vs Cena. Or maybe they just have an amazing match where Cena’s character finally becomes a badass. Just something to change the feel of the company. It’s now or never.
The Shield broke up, Evolution reunited, CM Punk retired, Ultimate Warrior died, Brock Lesnar won the WWE title, Vince lost millions of dollars in stock, the Network debuted, Sting is in talks to sign a contract, Undertaker lost at Wrestlemania, Daniel Bryan finally had a title run and WWE signed KENTA, Devitt and Steen.
The problem is NONE of it has panned out successfully or been entertaining yet.
2015 will have to be a comeback year for WWE or they are dead.
