The Fall of WWE
Why the WWE needs to make changes.

WWE lately has been constantly making history. They made the Wrestlemania match a year in advance. They had John Cena move to Smackdown and back to Raw all in the same draft night. In fact it seems like every time that I watch WWE I hear the announcers saying that they are “making history” tonight.
Here’s the problem with that. WWE continuously makes history, but where is the future. We are watching the same few superstars stay in the spotlight with the same basic storylines over and over again. There are too few of two things that made WWE what it is. There are too few big stars and too few rookies making impacts.
Over the past few years WWE has lost some huge stars that most of us grew up watching. The Hardy Boys and Edge have all fallen off WWE, as has DX and possibly Undertaker is soon to fall off too. So WWE has lost some huge stars. But that shouldn’t be the end of the company. They should still be able to pull in ratings enough for now while they bring in some rookies and bring them to stardom.
You have to believe that WWE has been such a dominant company of sports entertainment for so long that they have forgotten how they started. I wasn’t alive at the time, but I would definitely believe they started like every other company. They had a bunch of rookies who nobody really knew a lot about if they knew anything about them and they brought them up to stardom.
WWE is at a point right now where they need to start over in a way. They need to bring in new rookies and bring them up to stardom. Sure, they got Sin Cara and a couple of good rookies, but they aren’t exciting the fans enough to keep ratings going. WWE needs a great breakout superstar who comes in and excites the WWE universe. We don’t need to see someone come in who takes over as a heel. We have enough of those. We need some new Rey Mysterio and Hardy Boy style superstars who wrestle for the fans and succeed because of it.
WWE is exciting enough right now to keep moving, but it is really running on the same few matches over and over again. I used to watch WWE with excitement. I used to have to catch it from beginning to end because I was afraid if I didn’t I would miss something great. Now I turn it on just whenever I realize it is on. I no longer wait in anticipation for it. There is just no storyline right now that is exciting enough to get me hooked. There are times when I have actually fallen asleep during the program and didn’t even care to rewind it to see what I missed. That is how boring the show I once loved has become. WWE needs to do something about this and they need to do it fast.
About 2 years ago it would have been hard to believe that TNA had a chance against WWE, but now I wouldn’t be surprised to see TNA take over. When it comes to excitement and causing fans to want to tune in every week to see the action they are definitely winning the battle far as I am concerned. WWE needs to quit worrying about making history right now and start worrying about making a future.
