Paul Wight worked in WWE for over twenty years and is well aware of how the company has changed over the years. He is also aware of its flaws.
While speaking on Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette, Paul Wight talked about some of the issues that continue to plague WWE. Wight noted that competition is very important for the growth of pro wrestlers and so they can reinvent themselves elsewhere.
Wight then added that WWE doesn’t properly utilize their talents.
“I don’t care if this pis*es people off or not, but I’m going to say it: you need competition that’s not in the same house. You need another brand, where if someone doesn’t find out who they are on one brand, there is still another company where they can reinvent themselves and try again. I think that’s the problem when WWE was the only game in town. Sure, you had all the talent, sure, you had this great plethora of talent to work with. I think that’s one of the problems that WWE has now is because they have so much talent, that they can’t really maximize on all that talent.”
WWE has been criticized for having far too many talents than they know what to do with and Paul Wight agrees with that sentiment. We wonder whether WWE will take steps to rectify their problems.
