What’s Wrong With WWE?

Professional wrestling, I mean, um excuse me, “sports entertainment”, is actual the exact opposite of what it should be. The real problem with calling something ‘entertainment’ is that it should be entertaining, however, WWE seems to have forgotten this. I have no problem with a business becoming a publicly traded company. But I do have a real problem with the ongoing wave of faceless characters, faceless story lines, and washed up gimmicks that mean absolutely nothing. Now let’s be real, I know wrestling is a work. I’ve watched hundred of hours of documentary and “shoot” interviews (when wrestlers tell their behind the scenes stories). But their seems to be a real drop-off in today’s wrestling from a fun and creative point of view.

I miss the days when Hulk Hogan said his prayers and took his vitamins. I miss the days when Shawn Michaels was a “sexy boy”. I miss the days when Kane and The Undertaker were setting things on fire, literally. Now, we are stuck with characters such as A.J. Styles, Roman Reigns, and other faceless characters that have no microphone skills at all. These guys can still get it done in the ring, but who wants to see a 25 minute match between two guys that have no real story leading up to the match? Can we please get a shout out to entertaining stories that made us laugh, cry, cheer, and boo, like Ric Flair vs. Dusty Rhodes? We could almost feel their pain when it happened. Now, we sit back and stare at the television and just kinda shrug our shoulders. One thing WWE did get right, is the WWE network. Now, we can flip it on and watch all our old heroes in action and we don’t gotta be bothered with how badly the product has gotten lately. Hopefully, WWE realizes that true fans are tuning out of the current product and they can bring back some of the entertainment we want to see.
