WWE, the company that revolutionized Wrestling and has banned the word from being used on their show? Changed their name from World Wrestling Entertainment to just be called WWE. Has become a form of Entertainment and doesn't want to be known as a wrestling company or sports entertainment company. I've realized maybe, this is WWE's downfall.... Have you noticed as you watch RAW or SmackDown! you sit there, extremely bored and then you skip a match by watching a different channel to go back and see one promo that's decent just to stop watching because it's too "vanilla."
WWE has lost all their values. They are known for bringing in popular people now, possibly to stay afloat? Look at this year's WrestleMania... the main event featured The Rock, one of the most popular people during the Attitude Era. Could this have been a draw to save WrestleMania from the terrible one last year, along with bringing in older fans to try to get them to watch their new watered down form of entertainment? WWE has currently been trying to bring back Legends also leading up to their 1000th episode of RAW which is becoming a "Pay-Per-View" style set-up.
My idea is that most, if not more than all of WWE's older fans, believe that WWE has become completely watered down and nothing more than a commodity designated for little kids. We haven't seen anything to big this year besides Brock Lesnar coming back, and even that was okay at best. Brock Lesnar vs Triple H is scheduled to be the main event at SummerSlam though... which seems to be just another case of a popular person in pop culture headlining a "BIG" Pay-Per-View.
Speaking of SummerSlam, Metallica is being considered to play it?? I understand Metallica's a popular band, but seriously come on WWE if this idea falls through what happens, you lose millions and your Pay-Per-View becomes a flop again. Lets just hope this is as much of an abomination as the Megadeth concert WCW got to promote Bill Goldberg's return... disgraceful and a little mediocre none-the-less.
WWE seems to just pull out the biggest pop culture names to support their companies name now. Maria Kanelis, Metallica, Brock Lesnar, The Rock, Flo Rida, MGK, the Legends we've been getting each and every week of RAW, WWE needs to pick up their A-Game a little bit and try to do something with the people they already have instead of pulling pop culture names out of a hat and hoping for the best.
There's plenty of people and ideas WWE could capitalize to make their company better, they just don't seem to want to do this anymore. WWE has become nothing more than just a commodity for pop-culture superstars and matches that are hyped way be-on its existence. Personally, I wished WWE would try harder to promote the people they have instead of trying to just get others outside of their company to make them money. But then again, business is business right?
