The WWE will never change so the onus is now with the wrestlers

We see now the the WWE has lost its way and is never going to let these guys have free range to be themselves and get organically over.

I'm not a SCSA/CM Punk fanboy but I'm afraid its going to take more wrestlers saying "NO" and having the balls to either refuse to sign with the WWE(which most of them either want or need the money, so I don't fault them for needing to make a living) or to sign with the WWE and either put the squeeze on them at the beginning and say "my way or the highway" OR get in there and just say "fuck it" and be the character they want to be and wrestle the style they want to wrestle.

Eventually a conspiracy of wrestlers in this manner could potentially force change whether its them refusing to sign and having the balls to say "no you are just going to feed me to old guys and Cena" or better yet "NO, your promotion is too kiddie for me"

I am talking about grass-roots change. The WWE is built on its wrestlers. If the real talent would just tell them to go pound sand, the product would either improve or they would be forced into using inferior talent(besides Reigns and Cena that is) and die off anyway.

WWE is making record amounts of money. The product is family-friendly and fun for everybody.

Such a radical opinion probably won't go over too well on this place...

Re: The WWE will never change so the onus is now with the wrestlers

Dont get me wrong, I like a good entertaining gimmick, but the roster is so gimmick heavy right now that besides one or two people, everything is so plastic and scripted that its tough for me to enjoy. I get the feeling these guys arent even really given much free reign with their respective gimmicks besides Wyatt. Let these guys cut their own promos and wrestle their own style. The natural talents will rise to the surface and the offal will sink.

It is far to scripted and soulless because it is a corporate America product now. Wyatt does have their trust to write his own promos but he doesn't know the booking so he ends up sounding like a fool most of the time.

Re: The WWE will never change so the onus is now with the wrestlers

You're right OP, they won't change.... until they lose money. The wrestlers could do something about it but they watched firsthand what happened to the last guy that tried that we know of (Punk). That turned into a hot mess. Imo, those guys are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

In the meantime, if you aren't liking what WWE is putting out, go give LU a try. There's still time to catch up before season 2 comes out. The only thing we can do as fans is dictate where our money, views, and support go. I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for a WWE union of some sort.

This. Ratings continue to decline, because people just can't stand that much fun 3 hours straight. Vince let it go a little.

It's not the wrestlers that need to do something about it. It's the fans. Stop throwing money at them.
