If we take a little trip back to the Monday Night Wars. WCW vs WWF Entertainment. That was some great television and not so great television which had WWF Entertainment really pushing to be the best. WCW beat WWF Entertainment for a good two years at one point in ratings. Resulting in Creative to result to desperate measures. Some say it got them to really desperate, as the show became raunchy, even to the point of pushing their stars to the point where they endangered their lives (Owen Hart). I personally think that WWE got far too desperate when they forced Owen to perform that stunt, and it completely changed from standard Face vs Heel wrestling to someone entertaining storylines, HBK & Diesel was won I did enjoy & The DX Invasion. WCW lost ultimately with the decent in 1998. Since 2001, they haven't had competition as they bought out both WCW & ECW. The Alliance was an interesting storyline but predictable ending to it all. Evolution brought some life to it, The cruiserweight division was something that was entertaining, but lost that much air-time they retired the title. Now there is no competition at all. And as a result of this, WWE have gotten sloppy, they have some gold feuds: Orton vs HHH with the whole attacking the McMahon Family. Another was Nexus another was Rock vs Cena. Smackdown back in 2002, was a gold show. Rock & Y2J were awesome. Benoit & Angle were so entertaining. Lesnar and McMahon were also entertaining. Despite Goldberg & Lesnar's departure, we still had some gold times, Guerrero's title run & JBL's title run, Evolution, Kane's gold feud with Shane. But gradually WWE have put so much focus on 1 star, John Cena and forgotten some of the new guys. Then result to desperate measures to promote new guys, ADR is one that comes to mind. A new guy with hardly any build wins Rumble & Title in his 1st year. Show's debut was a great one back in the 90's, he was great then in his prime. TNA is probably a serious contender for WWE. I personally believe if TNA had the financial backing and moved to primetime television in a few years, they would overtake WWE in ratings easy. The past 2 years of TNA have been so good, they have well established stars and divisions. WWE how ever sacrifices a tag division to boost John Cena's career and he kills it whenever he wins the title. Daniel & Kane have brought an interest back to the division, but TNA Tag division is so much better. Great Tag Teams, all well established and certainly are better than any tag team on WWE. They still value the cruiserweights on TNA, WWE killed it off and have hardly any crusierweights left, Rey Misterio & Sin Cara are the only ones I can call. WWE bookings are repetitive. CM Punk is a fantastic guy, but his gimmick is so darn cheezy and dull that has been done over and over. If creative could stop oogling and fapping to Divas and start actually brainstorming some great ideas, these guys are required to have 3 years writing experience. Do they just employee barney the dinosaur writers? I hope that TNA becomes a major competitor for WWE soon and pushes it to become a better show because of it. I see no need for Smackdown now. Smackdown has become The RAW Highlight Show. I recall one show came back from commercial, played a 3 minutes raw replay and cut to commercial. Invest in it, bring back cruiserweight division to it, do something with it, TNA has 1 Live Show, Xplosion which is the equivalent of Heat/Velocity from WWE.
