5 Overlooked Problems WWE Must Fix ASAP
May 20, 2018 - WWE
WWE has finished a good pursuit of building adult names like Braun Strowman, Seth Rollins and AJ Styles in 2018, though a continued struggles of Roman Reigns to win over a assembly is one of many problems now plaguing a company.
The controversial engagement of Reigns, a doubt surrounding Brock Lesnar’s destiny and a muted engagement of SmackDown are only a few examples of some of a rather apparent issues that are spiteful a WWE product. But for any unmissable difficulty WWE is traffic with during a moment, like a Reigns and Lesnar conundrums, other reduction apparent problems are fast snowballing though still drifting underneath a radar.
Sure, it’s easy for WWE to disremember these issues during a time when revenue is sky high, a massive TV understanding is looming and the association is uninformed off essential events like WrestleMania 34 and a Greatest Royal Rumble. But it’s time for a association to take off a blinders and comprehend that, while business might be booming, that doesn’t indispensably meant all of a biggest obstacles have been overcome or that improvements don’t need to be made.
In fact, utterly a conflicting is true. Here are 5 ignored problems WWE needs to repair ASAP before they turn out of control.
The Actual Booking Of The Women’s Division
There’s been copiousness of fad surrounding a women’s multiplication over a final few years when WWE’s implausible garb of womanlike talent has finished story on churned occasions, like it did with a first-ever women’s Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber and Money in a Bank matches.
WWE has positively finished good strides in a approach it pushes women’s wrestling as evidenced by WWE officials divulgence late final year that a women’s division, that now creates adult some-more than one third of a roster, generates clever TV viewership and WWE Network numbers. But mislaid in all of a hoopla and unrestrained of saying WWE’s womanlike superstars being presented as equals to their masculine counterparts is a loyal hearing of only how bad a engagement of a women’s multiplication has been, how ignored some of a stars are and how there is still copiousness of room for alleviation when it comes to emanate constrained stories.
The stars themselves, generally names like Alexa Bliss, Charlotte Flair, Asuka and Carmella, are doing intensely good in building their characters, improving as in-ring performers and apropos bigger mainstream stars. However, a engagement hasn’t finished them any favors. For any good moment, like Flair finale Asuka’s streak, there has been another controversial artistic decision. Take, for example, a once sizzling prohibited Bayley vs. Sasha Banks argument that has strike a wall, a litany of nonessential 3-on-3 tab group matches or a finish failures to do anything estimable with Becky Lynch and Naomi.
Stephanie McMahon pronounced final year that 40% of WWE’s assembly is now female, a large series that is expected a top series ever and one that would lead we to trust WWE would make some-more of a accordant bid to sufficient pull a women’s division. Yet, a engagement of a womanlike performers has been, during best, a churned bag, and during worst, a finish and complete sight wreck, that has singular a really gifted women’s multiplication from reaching a full potential.
Interest Always Plummeting After WrestleMania
A demeanour during Google hunt for WWE Raw and SmackDown shows that seductiveness in a product takes a nosedive after WrestleMania any and any year.
TV viewership for both Raw and SmackDown also tell a same story, as does a WWE Network subscriber count, that plunges any year post-WrestleMania immediately after hitting a rise subscriber count. Of course, there will be some fading and issuing to seductiveness in WWE, quite in a form of TV and WWE Network viewership, though WWE has supposed a fact that ratings and a subscriber count tumble off a corner of a precipice after WrestleMania as an karma and is doing remarkably small to forestall that dump from happening.
Generally speaking, a bid that goes into engagement must-see storylines on a highway to WrestleMania isn’t there after a pay-per-view itself. That was clearly demonstrated during a roughly comically bad Backlash, that was unfortunately timed due to a Greatest Royal Rumble, though was an positively mess. Again, that’s on WWE. No matter what logistical obstacles might be in a way, it’s a pursuit of a artistic group to find a approach to book interesting storylines via a year and not only say, “Hey, we know that fans aren’t going to balance in for a subsequent few months after WrestleMania, so let’s only mail it in.”
WWE has finished a bad robe out of resting on a laurels and patting itself on a behind for all a success during WrestleMania that it mostly forgets that a late open and early summer can still be pivotal times for a association as well. Until WWE realizes that, a peculiarity of post-WrestleMania programming will continue to fall, and TV viewership as good as a WWE Network subscriber count will go down with it.
