WHAT DOES WWE NEED TO DO TO BRING BACK THE GOOD OLD DAYS OF WWE

Discussion in 'General WWE' started by shrayan, Jun 25, 2012.

  1. I HAVE NOTICED THAT FOR THE LAST 1 AND A HALF YEAR WWE HAS KIND OF LOST ITS SPICE AND EXCITEMENT SO WHAT IS YOUR OPINION -- WHAT SHOULD WWE DO TO BRING BACK THOSE DAYS OF EXCITEMENT
     
  2. THEY NEED TO BRING BACK HAUL PEYMAN MAKE DOLPH ZIGGLER THE WWE CHAMPION -- ACTUALLY PUT WORK INTO THEIR STORYLINES AND HAVE THEM MAKE SENSE. OH AND DON'T FORGET THEY NEED TO RETIRE VINCE MCMAHON THATS JUST MY OPINION. ANYWAY YEAH WWE BEEN KINDA DEAD FOR THE LAST COUPLE YEARS, SINCE 2008 REALLY. BUT JUST WAIT FOR THE 1000TH RAW EPISODE IT WILL BE 4 LETTERS E-P-I-C. I HONESTLY DON'T KNOW BECAUSE IT JUST SEEMS THAT THEY STOPPED GIVING A FUCK ABOUT WHAT THEY PUT INTO THEIR SHOW.

    BUT THAT'S JUST RAW, I recommend you go watch some NXT. NXT > RAW/SMACKDOWN.

  3. Vince needs to find someone else's ideas to steal and make his own,
     
  4. Write good product.
     
  5. Do you really want to bring back the "good ole days"?

    The 80s and 90s were great, but when the WWE reverted their ring style back to that of the 80s, people crapped all over it and still are. And the same stuff that they did in the 90s just got people to yell from the rooftops that TNA was going out of business.

    WWE needs to try new things. For example...

    -WWE needs to listen to their fans. They're having trouble with PPV buys and keeping fans interested when Monday Night Football comes around. Ask them what they want, at least make it feel like you give a damn about them. Right now, it feels like everyone in the WWE Offices have a Triple-H sized ego and think the fans need them. They don't.

    -The show should be treated like a sport, in the sense of that guys should be climbing the ladder to get to the ultimate prize, the WWE or WHC. There's no point to wanting to watch people getting stuck under a glass ceiling (see Kofi Kingston)

    -Who do the fans want? When I started watching in just 2008, the athletes impressed me. Jeff Hardy, Rey Mysterio, Kofi Kingston, CM Punk. When I saw WWE, I didn't see a "fistfight" or "a test of manliness". If I wanted that I'd watch UFC. This is fake, we all know it, and they have to put on a different product than that... and no, I don't mean the Five-Knuckle Shuffle or the Broski Boot. I mean the non-stop action you get when you throw a couple of smaller athletic guys into the ring together, the drama of the false finishes and pulling hard for the guys you want to win.

    -We pay for PPV's to see resolutions to storylines and to see two guys kill each other to get the World Title. Therefore, the cowardly heel character that can't win matches clean, who always makes you feel like you wasted your money just needs to go away. In a non-title match to progress a storyline, fine, and even every now and then on TV it's okay. But a PPV Main Event where The Miz only wins because someone else interfered doesn't get heat on Miz or that other person. It just pisses me off that WWE robbed me of my money. Also, they need more variety in the characters in general, especially in the main-event babyface lineup.

    -Despite it being fake, yet should be treated like a sport, the wrestling environment still exists. There needs to be a good reason that every match on the card is happening. At No Way Out, ONLY ONE match was well built, and that was a match that there was no freaking way you were giving a fuck about because it was Cena vs Big Show. Every other match had no build at all other than Santino interrupting Ricardo one day in a ridiculous segment.

    -Just put some effort into the freaking show! On Raw and Smackdown, the creative team has quit. Pointless segment after pointless segment... On Raw and Smackdown, we expect certain things: PPV build, story progression, character development, good matches, entertaining segments, and the occasional shocking moment. How many of these things are we getting every week?

  6. -They don't need to think of anything groundbreaking or revolutionary per se, they just need to go back to wrestling being wrestling. Build up interesting personalities, put two of them (or more) in a conflict - either over a belt or a personal rivarily or whatever - and have them fight and care about who is gonna win. This is the simple formula of wrestling. They just really need to execute it better.

    -Go back to letting guys come up with their own promos. Even Steve Austin has said this and it's something they rarely (if ever) do anymore. It used to be that guys would be given two or three bullet points to go over in a promo and they would let the wrestlers come up with the actual words during the interview. Promos were much better back then, just Youtube a bunch of old promos if you wanna see proof.

    -Let wrestlers have more say in their characters/gimmicks. Some of the best gimmicks have come from wrestlers being allowed to invent their own ideas or add their own tweaks to their characters. Steve Austin, the biggest draw of all time, created his entire gimmick himself (even down to the What chant and the Austin 3:16 shirt.) This is a big problem for me - most everyone on the roster just seems like another dude on the roster. There's not a whole lot of interesting personalities that stand out anymore.

    -Please do something with the Brand Split. It's just cluttering up the show. Either go back to having a true brand extension by having guys only show up on one show or the other (I'm all for bringing back brand exclusive PPVs, in this case), or end it altogether by unifying the world titles. And in that case, unify the IC and US Titles as well.

    -As mentioned, treat championships as if they actually mean something.

    In short, just book wrestling how successful wrestling has always been booked, just book it a whole lot better than you're booking it now. Easy in theory, difficult in practice, but it's still not rocket science.

  7. Well, I believe that by good old days, you mean a good product. Well, first, get Vince off WWE, he kills Creative's ideas and the effort they put into the show. Then, I think they should have different gimmicks, make championships something hard to win, thus making them mean something, cut a few PPVs so they can have longer feuds and consequently better builds for matches, and then, do something about the Brand Split as KL said, keep as far away from MMA as possible as Rain said, etc.

  8. Make cena HEEL
    Bring back a good GM
     
  9. WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING YOUR POINT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
     
  10. Apologies for that it seems like a trend on here for some.

    Anyway they need one thing consistency, you need to follow through with all your actions.

  11. Exactly, there's no continuity. Storylines are dropped very quickly. According to ex-creative members, this is particularly Vince's fault, since he says that since he doesn't remember what happened three weeks ago, no one else will.
     
  12. I miss this.
