Many fans would agree that WWE’s product has fallen a lot when it comes to quality. The current product has a lot of flaws including 50/50 booking, feuds that don’t go anywhere, teams splitting up for no reason and storylines not making sense. The disinterest of the fans is reflected in the dwindling ratings of Monday Night RAW over the past few years.

This is only the start as fans are also tired of how NXT talents being called up to the main roster are treated, with Karrion Kross’ plight being one of many blemishes on WWE’s record.

On the other hand, AEW has all the momentum in the world right now thanks to the debuts of CM Punk, Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole. Many talents simply choose to go to AEW now in hopes of better booking compared to WWE.

While speaking on a Facebook video, Mick Foley talked about the various problems WWE has and how AEW is shaping up to be a better alternative to aspiring young talents.


”WWE is no longer the place for talents to aspire to. Part of it is because AEW is doing a great job of attracting great talent, proving talent, creating storylines, but part of it is a problem of your own making. I think the younger talents see the way that the development characters are cut or left by the wayside or by the way of Karrion Kross, greatly watered down or even made a joke of when they make their debuts on the main roster. It’s not broke, don’t fix it. If I was an aspiring talent now, I’m not sure that I would trust WWE Creative would do the right thing with my career. Until that changes, WWE – you got a problem.”

We certainly wonder if pro wrestling as a whole will improve their storylines, especially WWE in this case. If WWE does heed Mick Foley’s advice, perhaps there is still hope left for the company.
