How to fix Monday Night Bore?

The Monday Night Bore

This is my first blog ladies and gentleman so bare with me on this one!

If there is one thing we all have in common its our frustrations with the current state of the WWE and its abysmal 'product'. As i sit here watching Raw i seem unable to enjoy it because even the smallest details frustrate and annoy me. I just want to walk backstage and tell Vince how to run the show, and here are the things i would say:

Introduction to Raw-
From the moment Raw's broadcast begins i find myself annoyed with the theme song. The theme songs to Raw have gradually degraded but this one takes the biscuit. the WWE has always stayed true to its rock and metal routes, its what its always been about, the music goes with the destruction and chaos that SHOULD explode on a monday night. The current theme song does not only apply to the main stream status-quo but it can not be related to professional wrestling whatsoever. WHOOPS did i say wrestling??
That terrible Recap section at the start of Raw that makes it look like a episodic soap drama also needs to go.

The Ropes!! - This one is simple the ropes NEED to be RED end of.

The Set-
Sometimes less is more, and in the case of the set this really rings true. HD screens as far as the eye can see. Strobe lights, lasers, flashes and bangs. The Raw set we all once loved now acquires more lights and props than the Las Vegas strip. A show that was once about feuds and pure professional wrestling is now about how expensive they can make the set look. It really takes away from the matches when the set makes you think someone has slipped you some LSD.

John Cena- What can i say. Give us a break and take some time off. We all need less super Cena for a while.

The Divas Division- The womens wrestling in WWE took a turn for the worse once Trish and Lita left and there are no signs of improvement. How can the audience relate and get into the Divas when they have no airtime. Even when they do its just thrown together into two minute matches that have no storyline or meaning.

Where are the Monsters? - Everyone loves a monster. Someone who would come down to the ring and when you saw them coming down the ramp you knew shit was about to go down. Ryback is the closest thing nowadays to a monster but its hard to feel his character when his dialogue solely consists of his requirements for food. And for anyone who has kane on there mind as they read this section, his reputation as a monster was destroyed a long time ago.

Time To Step Up-
After seeing Randy Orton, John Cena and the Big Show in the main event picture for so many years i have started to know them in the ring more than they know themselves. The key to wrestling is suprising the audience and leaving them on the edge of there seats. All these guys cause for me is a YAWN. Time for Damien Sandow, Dolph Ziggler and Codey Rhodes to move up the card.

I feel like i have let some of my anger out now its in writing and thank you for reading. But i dont want to end this Blog on a negative note. So do i have anything positive to say? Yes I do.

Thank you to CM Punk for carrying the WWE over the past year. He and Daniel Bryan are the only reason i have a tiny bit of Faith left in the WWE. As long as true Wrestlers like this stay alive in a WWE ring we are safe.

Please comment and tell me what you think about the current state of the WWE, positive or negative i would love to hear your opinions!

Until next time!

    No offense man but this seems like a "What I would like to see WWE do" thing rather than a "What would fix the WWE" sort of thing. I agree with some of your points but I don't think Cena taking time off will fix anything given the fact that he DOES draw in the highest rated segments. Instead of giving him time off, why not give him feuds with other mid-carders to elevate him more? Not in the sense of demoting him but rather making wrestlers such as Dolph Ziggler and Damien Sandow look like promising main eventers, working with a top draw such as Cena. Cena does indeed need a break with all of the hard work hes doing currently but they need him more than ever right now and the lack of depth in the roster right now shows.

    I'd like to graciously welcome you to the our little blogging community. That being said, I'm glad some of my friends have already decided to rip into you and your first blog lol. I guess it's kind of a "welcome to the gang" thing we've got going on.

    Introduction; As T-H35 stated, "Want to be loved" was the revolutionary RAW theme song IMO. This new crap ass song is absolutely horrible. I personally enjoyed "Burn It to The Ground", but the E' is all about moving with the times and changing. So possibly a shitty song for a shitty program is suiting.

    The Ropes;
    I've always been a fan of the old school red, white and blue. But I can live with the whole red theme you've suggested. I mean the pink rope ordeal is kind of suiting what with the whole breast cancer theme. I personally think wrestlers supporting the pink arm/wrist bands is enough.

    The Set; Who cares.... It's not as if any show or ppv is any different.

    Cena; Time off?!?!? Hell I'm not a fan, but he's one of the only things keeping fans in the seats. Raw needs Cena..... The E' needs Cena... Enough said.

    Divas Division; When the E' decides to take a page out of the attitude era and finally realize that sex sells, than, and than only will people care for the Divas Division once again.

    Where Are The Monsters? Wrestling is a whole evolving process. Give it time, soon enough you'll see a transformation. The day will come when Brodus evolves into the monster we all were hoping for in the first place.

    Time To Step Up;
    Even if the stars you've suggested or even others attempt to step up, the E' will totally blow the opportunity to transition these wrestlers into surreal superstars.

    I'm leaving it at this;
    The Land of the E' may have taken a decent twist this past week on RAW. What with some stating the whole Punk/Lawler segment was tasteless and un-called for, I personally thought it was sheer GOLD! We finally for the first time in years got a taste of the Attitude Era, and there are some out there ALREADY bitching about it!!! Linda's Campaign being an absolute fail yet again, can mean one thing and one thing ONLY.....

    E', PLEASE capitalize on that sh*t!!!

    Good intro blog, keep em' coming.

Cena=sales, sales=money, money=Vince. Why would you have the top merch seller take time off? If you think Punk has carried the company this year then you've not watched enough WWE this year.

    Someone please call Vince and tell him to make the ropes red. That way WWE will be saved. WTF does the color of the ropes have to do with anything?

    Bottom line is if you're so unhappy with WWE then watch something else. Vince is not holding a gun to your head and making you watch. WWE will NEVER go back to the attitude era, nor will you ever see WWE like it was in the past. So people can accept it like I have and continue to watch, or they can change the channel.

    I 100% agree with you. people need to stop trying to wish for the attitude era back and just embrace what it is now

    I can see where you're coming from. There are not many good wrestlers on today's roster...but the trend in WWE seems to be, who can get the crowd going and who can trend on twitter, rather than who can actually wrestle. I'm not sure how much you've read of any of my old Abdominal Stretch blogs, but I don't favor Ziggles even a little bit. I still think he sucks and always will. I personally wouldn't include him in a top 15 talent in WWE, let alone one of a marquee 4 names like you mentioned here. I do like Tyson Kidd and yes, Daniel Bryan can wrestle, but like I said, Kane is the one carrying that Hell No storyline. They could have started with anybody on the roster in place of DB, but it would've gone nowhere without Kane.

    While, I don't like the new theme, anything and I mean ANYTHING, is better than Nickelback!
