Re: WWE Is Paying for the Last 8 Years

Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to respond to OP's excellent points one by one.

vince should of pushed younger talent atleast 3-4 years ago and turned cena heel last year if not before that, now there screwed
Wrestling's golden years were from 97 til maybe 03. Ratings would've gone down regardless, but I see what you're saying. Worst thing is when ratings are exceptionally low (by today's standards), that's when they shove Cena down our throats even more. It happened at this time last year. Cena is WWE's comfort zone and, sadly, it isn't working anymore. He is still human and will eventually wear out or, God forbid, get seriously injured.

I still cannot wrap my head around it. The man gets booed by a good percentage of the crowd, yet he's still "the man". He'll stoop as low as to exalt and complement the crowd that boos him just to try to get more people to cheer for him. Happened in Chicago and it made me sick.

WWE made a HUGE mistake by feeding Lesnar to Cena back in April. Imo, it has been WWE's biggest booking mistake of 2012 thus far. Cena gained nothing from it, but Lesnar lost quite a bit if you ask me.

WWE is in quite a predicament. They can't explicitely say that Attitude Era is better than current era, but they constantly lean on Attitude Era stars in order to boost ratings and PPV buys. Rock, Taker, Michaels, Stone Cold, Edge, Foley, even Hart... all Attitude Era people.

so where does this leave the wwe right now, ryback is going to be a bust, if thats the guy there banking on i feel sorry for them
WWE is scared. Aside from Cena, they have no faith in their current roster. They are starting to put more weight on Punk's shoulders, but even now it's still difficult b/c Cena is recovering so currently Punk is solely the one with the company on his shoulders.

100% corrent. Cena is 35 and Punk is 33. Orton is 32, but it's a known fact that he's had enough of the terrible schedule. Again, this is why WWE relies so heavily on Attitude Era stars. They are already old, the 3 names mentioned are aging, and WWE still has no one to "pass the torch" to. They need to get to work fast.
