Five things WWE should change immediately
1990s and early 2000s were the glory days of wrestling. During this time, missing out on the action of Raw or SmackDown was impossible for fans because of the high-quality content, WWE delivered every single week. However, nowadays WWE seems to have strayed from this path. In the same light, here are things which WWE can learn from its past.
The 'anything can happen' attitude
Even after the McMahons came out and promised fans that they would revive Raw and SmackDown, they have not been true to their words. Earlier, Raw or SmackDown used to be thrill-rides, with intense stories, power-packed promos, and bookings one would never anticipate. Now everything is so streamlined, it feels extremely rehearsed, and the raw (pun intended), intense nature of the shows is missing.
Not everyone needs to be WWE Champion
During the late 90s and early 2000s, three or four superstars were able to hold the top titles. We had periods of glorious runs and brilliant feuds between The Rock, Stone Cold, Triple H, and Undertaker. These days, WWE fails to make people stars as it keeps rotating the championship titles. Not even a single star has a loyal fan base.
Overuse of special matches should stop
Earlier, matches like tables, ladders, and chairs, Hell in A Cell had a special appeal as they were rare. Wrestlers themselves acted shocked when booked in such a fashion, thus aggravating the hype surrounding these formats. Just because these formats gave them success, WWE started overusing them, and even the matches are not that gruesome or intense anymore.
Continue storylines at pay-per-view events
Another thing WWE can learn from its past is how to continue storylines during the pay-per-view events. It doesn't seem realistic that if a feud is going on, it suddenly halts because the event is too big for it. Earlier, WWE showed backstage footage, brawls, and even brought out storylines in matches, something it never does these days, thus making pay-per-views quite bland.
The great commentating in the matches
With the introduction of the panel of three commentators, WWE lost the appeal it had when Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler lit up Raw with their voices, each supporting one of the wrestlers fighting. But with heavy scripting being followed by WWE and the three-member team, the exchange between commentators has been lost. It would be great if they bring on a dynamic pair.
