Kurt Angle’s first run with WWE was with a totally different backstage regime. When he returned to WWE a decade later everything had changed. Angle can see how this situation is not what it used to be.
While talking on The Kurt Angle Show, the WWE Hall of Famer discussed the creative process in WWE. They don’t even have the WrestleMania card together this year, but in the past it was practically figured out by December. That is not the way things used to run at all and he discussed how WWE works now by mentioning his final WrestleMania.
“It was really hard to guess who was going to wrestle who. Things weren’t structured out as neatly as in prior years. You know they usually [in the past] had the WrestleMania cards by December, at the very latest. If they were gonna have WrestleMania in March or April, they would have been prepared by December. They would have the card ready. This one? It wasn’t ready for quite some time. I don’t think they put together the card, the whole card entirely, till the week before WrestleMania.“
The blame for this situation can be placed on several things. The flow of information in WWE isn’t what it used to be either. Vince McMahon has set up a structure that doesn’t provide the same creative flow of ideas that it used to, especially with Bruce Prichard as Executive Director of both shows.
