Jim Johnston is a legendary composer for WWE who worked with the company for close to 32 years until his departure in 2017. He is responsible for composing many iconic WWE entrance theme songs including The Undertaker, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin and many more. It seems he feels bad for the current WWE talents.

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. The likes of former talent Keith Lee and Karrion Kross come to mind as well.

While speaking on the RRBG podcast, Jim Johnston talked about the current state of WWE Superstars. Johnston admitted that he feels bad for talents because they are treated poorly.


“I feel so sorry for the current crop of talent there. I feel like they’re being served so inadequately and so poorly. There are no breakout stars because they’re not putting the right combination of things together to create stars. I am sure there are stars there, I am absolutely confident. I remind everybody before Steve broke out and became one of the biggest stars in the game, he was The Ringmaster. He was a pretty low-card player.”

We certainly wonder if pro wrestling as a whole will improve their storylines, especially WWE in this case. With the company’s penchant for poor booking, it is unlikely to change anytime soon.
