Many fans feel 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 WWE Superstar Karrion Kross and Keith Lee are one of many blemishes on WWE’s record.
The company is certainly not known for its long-term storytelling as fans are simply tired of being treated like idiots. On top of that, heels dynamics in WWE are not what they used to be as well.
While speaking on Tacos With Thunder Rosa, WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley talked about an aspect of WWE that the company is doing wrong. He then proceeded to criticize Vince McMahon for poorly booking heels in the company.
“Darby Allin, if I could, if I was in my prime, I would’ve got my hands on Darby Allin. The one thing I say sometimes that’s missing, and this is, I guess, a knock on Mr. McMahon, he wants every heel to look like they’re trying to win at every moment. He’s real big on covering for everything. That’s great for some people, but Abdullah the Butcher didn’t, he didn’t go for covers. He looked like he was there to end your life. And so sometimes what’s missing is that aspect that the babyface is that he isn’t fighting for a win, he’s literally fighting for his life.”
Vince McMahon will ultimately do what he sees fit and it hardly matters to him what others think of his booking. We wonder whether the company will improve the way they book their heels or not in the future.
