Okay so keeping these ideas PG (sorry for anyone wanting to hear that the Bra & Panties match would shake the WWE up again!), what are some ideas that would shake WWE to it's core again. We haven't had a moment like Stone Cold trashing the boss week after week, WWE buying WCW and having the son, Shane McMahon, announce that he owns WCW instead of Vince. WWE needs a shake-up, WWE needs something monumental to happen again to get those ratings again. When would be the best time to do any shaking up? Well the 1000th Episode of RAW surely would be a perfect time do such things.
But honestly, what is there left for the WWE to do to get you going... "OH MY GAWD!! HOLY $@%*!" there's not much left for WWE to do anymore. Sooo here a couple things/ideas that would give WWE an Oh My GAWD!! moment no-one is expecting.
# 1 - WWE Announcing Ownership of TNA
Okay, this is an obvious one. None-the-less it's still a monumental idea. The story-lines for this would be extreme.
- Sting vs Taker
- AJ Styles/Jeff Hardy/Rob Van Dam vs CM Punk/Jericho/Rey Mysterio
- John Cena vs Samoa Joe, Kurt Angle vs Randy Orton (if you haven't followed up on their feud on Twitter, you won't understand why this could be so intense)
- Crimson and Matt Morgan vs Kane and the Big Show
The list goes on and on. There are so many feuds that could be worked within this idea that would draw, draw, draw and make you want more every single week. That's why I consider this to be a top idea. If WWE could make this happen ratings would sky-rocket, people would be dropping their jaws and better yet.... WWE could keep TNA as a seperate brand and have them stay on Spike instead of having them come over and feud on just WWE TV. This would draw many into this and give an invasion-style vibe that would be extremely unique and beneficial for TNA stars and WWE in and of itself.
# 2 - A Major Faction Invading
nWo, D-Generation X, and the Ministry of Darkness... what do all these factions have in common, full-scale domination of their company. We need another major faction in WWE. We need a new nWo, not a Nexus not a Corre, an nWo or D-Generation X. nWo can be PG just a DX showed they can be PG and still work around it to make it unique. This would draw in people to tune in to WWE tv, and hey even get them to do what WWE did to WCW except on other companies and "invade" them. Nothing draws in people more then controversy.
- "Controversy Creates Cash" -
Nothing is more exciting than a group of people being different and attempting to destroy one another's styles. WWE trying to destroy WCW was so unique, along with the Monday Night Wars, and DX/nWo had the top stars in their factions at the time. Why not do this again and generate cash for yourself, while secretly promoting the other's company by showing them on your TV show. Everyone's happy!
# 3 - The Boss/Brock Lesnar Becomes Partial Owner
What was one of the most talked about rivalries in 2007, Donald Trump vs Vince McMahon. What by far is the most talked about rivalry of the Attitude Era, Stone Cold Steve Austin vs Vince McMahon. Who did D-Generation X mess with and "break" in 2006, Vince McMahon. Who has the power to make himself look like the biggest a-hole and generate tons of cash, Vince McMahon.
Okay I know Vince doesn't want to ruin his wife's chance of winning the senate race or whatever she's doing now-a-days. But, Vince really does = ratings. Vince needs to do something huge. Especially seeing how we have this Brock Lesnar vs Triple H rivalry going on right now, this could be huge!! Make this rivalry last til 'Mania. Make Brock Lesnar the biggest evil-maniacal son of a B@($# WWE has ever had. Let him win at SummerSlam, let him win the law-suits. Let him even control RAW at some-point and have him hire Paul Heyman as the new RAW/SmackDown! GM. Why? Because then at WrestleMania get Triple H to go in an all-or-nothing WWE vs Lesnar's Ego match. People would speculating if this was true or not 'til the day we die. It's a unique storyline and it gets everyone buzzing and watching your program day-in and day-out. Vince would fit perfectly into this to, since he owns WWE he would have to entrust someone to do the match for him... no-one wants Lesnar vs Vince at WrestleMania for god-sakes, hahahahahaha flop-in-the-making right there! Anyways, seriously WWE drag this Triple H vs Lesnar feud out!
# 4 - WWE Splits Brands/Unifies Titles
Okay this sounds confusing so let me explain this. WWE should split the WWE or unify them completely, making SmackDown! have people like Cena and Triple H on that brand also so people actually want to watch SmackDown! If you split brands, make the titles more valuable... don't let everyone in the world just challenge for the title whenever they want, Impact Wrestling is doing a good job of making their titles relevant right now.
If you're going to unify all the titles, however. Split the brands. 2002 was a fun year, why? Because WWE had the Undisputed Championship which was defended against people on both RAW and SmackDown! And the only person that would be on both shows, the Undisputed Champion. That was interesting because it meant the champion had an even bigger target on his back because he was considered to be a co-branded superstar, he was not exclusive to any brand. This would breathe some life in WWE because it's better than the WWE Title and World Title which seem to have lost all of their value lately.
WWE needs to breathe some life into their company and re-invent themselves. They seem to just drag on now. There is nothing really interesting or different anymore, every year from 1995-2007 seemed to have it's very unique and compelling story-line, but now... we barely even get anything that's really worth buying a PPV. It's almost sad to say, I wouldn't mind a WCW One Night Stand storyline at this point....
