10 Ways WWE Can Improve In 2017
December 22, 2016 - WWE
WWE, for all it did right in 2016, still has copiousness of room for alleviation in 2017.
Relying too many on part-timers like Brock Lesnar and Goldberg and unwell to see creative’s issues with a engagement of Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens prominence only a few of a weaknesses WWE contingency spin into strengths subsequent year. Even yet there were copiousness of pros in 2016 (think AJ Styles, The Miz and women’s wrestling), a cons are always going to be delicately scrutinized by fans opposite a world.
And WWE contingency listen to those fans, who are unequivocally outspoken about ways to urge a product and simply wish WWE to stop doing what didn’t work and keep doing what did.
Exactly what should WWE do to safeguard a successful 2017? Let’s inspect 10 ways WWE can urge subsequent year and a impact those improvements could have on a association relocating forward.
10. Actually Have A Midcard
Raw has literally roughly no midcard, as evidenced by a fact that a United States Champion is feuding for a Universal Championship. Meanwhile, SmackDown basically has a revolving doorway of guys who work in a WWE/Intercontinental pretension cinema (The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, Dean Ambrose, etc.), arrange of only feuding with any other in a clearly everlasting cycle.
Both shows contingency have a improved offset label featuring feuds and PPV matches for guys like Sami Zayn and Apollo Crews, who have mostly been lost given a code split.

9. Reduce The Number Of Pay-Per-Views, Limit The Gimmick Ones
WWE had distant too many PPVs this year and will reportedly revoke that series subsequent year, that is positively a right call.
But WWE should take that one step offer and also extent a volume of gimmick PPVs like Hell in a Cell, TLC and Extreme Rules, that categorize a association into engagement gimmick matches that might not fit a feuds that are going on during a time.
After all, did Roman Reigns vs. Rusev or Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins unequivocally aver a Hell in a Cell match?
8. More Shockers Like Goldberg Destroying Brock Lesnar
Goldberg’s unilateral dismantling of Brock Lesnar during Survivor Series was a many intolerable impulse of a year, and possibly we determine with that engagement or not, it’s tough to repudiate a hum that it created.
WWE should strongly cruise engagement some-more shockers like this in 2017, possibly it’s in a form of a vital dissapoint (think Goldberg over Lesnar), a startling heel spin (like AJ Styles) or a arrangement of an doubtful fast (think Randy Orton fasten a Wyatts).
The indeterminate beats a predicted roughly any day of a week, and WWE needs some-more unpredictability subsequent year.
7. Limit TV Time For Authority Figures
SmackDown has finished a flattering good pursuit recently of not overexposing possibly Shane McMahon or Daniel Bryan, though altogether in 2016, WWE spent distant too many TV time compelling and focusing on a management figures.
Whether it’s Stephanie McMahon emasculating masculine superstars, Shane-O-Mac wrestling during both Survivor Series and WrestleMania, Triple H feuding with Roman Reigns or Mick Foley doing one of his intense/yelling promos, there is mostly distant too large of a concentration on management figures, a plan that has been finished to genocide and doesn’t need to be used anymore.

Authority total should offer as subordinate pieces of Raw and SmackDown, and their participation on TV should be as singular as possible.
