View Full Version : A couple of ideas for WWE...

WWE is suffering right now, we all agree? Maybe they aren't in panic mode just yet, but in another year or so under PG TV and the continued horrible lack of 'creative' storylines, they will reach panic mode. They haven't given a 'fresh' superstar a new push to win his first WWE/World Heavyweight Championships via the Royal Rumble since Rey Mysterio in 2006, and let's face it, the loss of Eddie had alot to do with that. (RIP Eddie Guerrero, you are sorely missed.)

My first idea, starting with the 2011 Royal Rumble. They NEED a first time winner, who also has not held a WWE/World Heavyweight Championship. In my mind, there's 4 guys that NEED this win, and that WWE NEEDS to push, and correctly. On RAW, a push for John Morrison would be nothing short of spectacular, and on Smackdown, in my opinion, Kofi Kingston is ready for the big time. (Remember the feud with Orton? Just a taste of how it should have turned out.) My 2 other choices would be Christian (if healthy) on the Smackdown side and Wade Barrett on the RAW side. My personal choice would be for John Morrison to win, setting up a huge showdown at WM27 between John Morrison and still WWE Champion The Miz. With the correct build and storyline, the match for the title would be nothing short of tremendous. (2-3 years, I would have laughed at that thought, but The Miz is super over as a heel and has stepped his game up tremendously over the last few years.) On the Smackdown side of things, Edge NEEDS to be a heel. He's been one of my favorites for years now but he NEEDS to be heel. Set up a feud with a returning Christian who wins a surprise Battle Royal for the #1 contendership to the title, and have Edge regain the World Heavyweight Championship in the Elimination Chamber. Again, with the correct build and storyline this will go over HUGE. (I hope!)

The other idea is far-reaching, and may not sound like a great idea at first. PPV buys are down, right? Have been for awhile. LESS PPV'S! To make a PPV significant again, and by that I mean not throwing together 2-3 matches within the last week before a PPV then expecting results, run only 8 PPV's a year, and bring back Saturday Night's Main Event, maybe run that 3-4 times a year. You could use SNME to boost and build storyline while also building on RAW and Smackdown without having to do a PPV every 3-4 damn weeks. If you cut PPV's and make the TV programming more important they would see an increase in not only PPV buys but TV ratings as well. At least I would think so. The WWE/World Heavyweight Championships don't need to be tossed around 4 guys a year on 6-7 title switches, make those titles mean something more! It's all about the storyline, and all about the build. I hope I'm not the only one that thinks that would work longterm but if I am, so be it.

Thoughts?

Actually, not really. It has its problems, but I think WWE has been better this half-year or so than it has been for years. 2004-2008, now THAT was an embarrassment.

I don't care who wins the Royal Rumble, (although 1st time winner would be nice) AS LONG as it isn't a surprise return winner or #1/#30. Seriously, that kinda shit should be BANNED for at least five years, happens way too often these days.

Less PPVs is a dumb idea and will never happen. Yeah, it works WONDERS, (just look at ROH) but it's practically financial suicide for a company like the 'E.

They can survive if they cut maybe 2-3 PPV's. With more time to hype and sell the PPV, more time to build up feuds and get viewers emotionally invested into the storylines, You'll have more peopl wanting to buy them.

Or they'll just increase the price of the PPV. Either way, if they cut PPV's they can still find a way to make the money.

Actually less PPV's isn't so bad of an idea and maybe its unlikely to happen but these watered down PPv's go stale quick. Hell, Survivior Series needed Roddy Piper and Old School Raw to make the PPV mean something. I grew up on the 4 PPV's a year and the anticipation for each one was amazing but nowadays you always know there is some Gimmick PPV around the corner and they usually invest limited time building storylines for them so you might as well be pissing in the wind (no pun IPITS) /End Rant

Anyone who caught Kofi vs Swagger on Friday's Smackdown should clearly see that Kingston's nowhere near deserving of main event status. He's not a "controlled frenzy" so much as he is an "out-of-control botchfest". Dude's sloppier than Manwich. His timing is also all out of whack and his matches are just plain ugly. Every time he gets in the ring, as of late, it's almost like watching a fireworks display gone awry.

For starters, Vince's "billions" aren't liquid, so it's not like he actually has that much in his bank account. Second, who are you, or anyone else for that matter, to dictate how much money another person "needs"? Business owners are entitled to aspire to make as much money as they possibly want- hell, that ambition is pretty much the entire crux of capitalism for Pete's sake.

i agree and disagree a new 1st time royal rumble winner would b nice like christian or morrison, but the problem with that is after the feud with christian vs edge and miz vs morrison is after the feud is who can believe christian and morrison as champ, really..b honest unless as a heel these two guys look weak like the miz with the title-don't get me wrong i like miz as champ but the gimmik as the heel champion who can be easily beaten by facs has been done to DEATH i.e. y2j undisputed title reign and edge first wwe title reign to name a few. 12 ppvs is all they need a year i think now it's up2 14. wwe needs a womens divison bcuz what they have now is a joke. i remember actually watching molly holly vs lita and enjoying the wrestling. MAKE CENA A HEEEL this needs 2 happen and put him on smackdown. a feud with taker and heel cena would b awseome again. o and since its the pg era make the ppvs tlc and xtreme rules rating TV14 and really advertise thats it going to b hardcore and bring back first blood matches. edge needs to b a heel and big zeke needs 2 b a big time player a feud wit sheamus would b great.

True, Kofi would be a better wrestler of he toned down some of his nonsense flippy shit... but I actually really enjoyed his matches with Swagger these past couple of weeks, both were MOTN.

The entire point of working to accumulate money is to be able to afford better things. 99% of rich people don't bust their ass just to accumulate a pile of money that they intend to do nothing with except sit on until they die. Even the ones that do rest on a majority of their wealth usually distribute it to their loved ones upon their death (thus affording their loved ones things that they otherwise wouldn't be able to afford). No wealth ever stays hidden forever.

And one would be a fool to assume that Vince doesn't give away some portion of his money to charity, and annually at that. No person alive with his kind of money would pass up that opportunity to take advantage of the various tax write-offs available to them for dispensing such funds.

Firstly, appertaining to a reduction in the number of PPVs, I think it would be a good idea for a number of reasons. The first is that championships usually change hands at PPVs. Championships in WWE have lost their prestige because they are tossed back and forth from month to month. With fewer PPVs each year, I'm certain that WWE would not switch title holders as frequently. Aside from that, as everyone has mentioned, it would allow a much better time frame to build storylines so that their would be more interest in purchasing a PPV. Honestly, I had no interest in watching Orton vs. Cena at 5 consecutive PPV events. The only reason I actually saw all 5 PPVs was because I had a friend at a local radio station that hooked me up with certificates from the cable company to get each event for free. If it wasn't for that, I wouldn't have bought a single one of those events.

The TV ratinhs are ok but they haven't been getting out off this 3.1 - 3.4 range. They can do a lot better and Smackdown's rating has yet to go over a 2 or a 2.1.

I find it hard to put all the blame of the PPV numbers on illegal streams. Some? Yes, but its not responsible for the big drops they've been having. Its' partly booking problems, the price increase, viewing parties, and illegal streams.

WWE is suffering right now, we all agree? Maybe they aren't in panic mode just yet, but in another year or so under PG TV and the continued horrible lack of 'creative' storylines, they will reach panic mode. They haven't given a 'fresh' superstar a new push to win his first WWE/World Heavyweight Championships via the Royal Rumble since Rey Mysterio in 2006, and let's face it, the loss of Eddie had alot to do with that. (RIP Eddie Guerrero, you are sorely missed.)

My first idea, starting with the 2011 Royal Rumble. They NEED a first time winner, who also has not held a WWE/World Heavyweight Championship. In my mind, there's 4 guys that NEED this win, and that WWE NEEDS to push, and correctly. On RAW, a push for John Morrison would be nothing short of spectacular, and on Smackdown, in my opinion, Kofi Kingston is ready for the big time. (Remember the feud with Orton? Just a taste of how it should have turned out.) My 2 other choices would be Christian (if healthy) on the Smackdown side and Wade Barrett on the RAW side. My personal choice would be for John Morrison to win, setting up a huge showdown at WM27 between John Morrison and still WWE Champion The Miz. With the correct build and storyline, the match for the title would be nothing short of tremendous. (2-3 years, I would have laughed at that thought, but The Miz is super over as a heel and has stepped his game up tremendously over the last few years.) On the Smackdown side of things, Edge NEEDS to be a heel. He's been one of my favorites for years now but he NEEDS to be heel. Set up a feud with a returning Christian who wins a surprise Battle Royal for the #1 contendership to the title, and have Edge regain the World Heavyweight Championship in the Elimination Chamber. Again, with the correct build and storyline this will go over HUGE. (I hope!)

The other idea is far-reaching, and may not sound like a great idea at first. PPV buys are down, right? Have been for awhile. LESS PPV'S! To make a PPV significant again, and by that I mean not throwing together 2-3 matches within the last week before a PPV then expecting results, run only 8 PPV's a year, and bring back Saturday Night's Main Event, maybe run that 3-4 times a year. You could use SNME to boost and build storyline while also building on RAW and Smackdown without having to do a PPV every 3-4 damn weeks. If you cut PPV's and make the TV programming more important they would see an increase in not only PPV buys but TV ratings as well. At least I would think so. The WWE/World Heavyweight Championships don't need to be tossed around 4 guys a year on 6-7 title switches, make those titles mean something more! It's all about the storyline, and all about the build. I hope I'm not the only one that thinks that would work longterm but if I am, so be it.

Thoughts?

ur ideas are good.....but i'll think they'll fall on deaf ears, its a little late i think. They are just gonna used to the same tired old played storylines and in the end we're not gonna get anything new let alone refreshing...I hate to say it's over, but the fat lady is singing on the WWE. It'll still last, it's just not gonna be what we used to see....
