WWE is going to go "kayfabe".

The WWE is going to change the model for professional wrestling by making it known that everything is a work. They'll then put on kayfabe-oriented shows.

How they plan to do this is through the WWE network. They'll show clips from shows during the PG era that'll be intertwined with storylines in the future. For example, this clip with Austin, JBL, and Cole.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiftrC5IaSs

Pay attention to Austin giving the bird during the PG era and how emotional Cole gets when Austin signs the contract. He literally starts crying! This is going to be a clip showed in the future to spawn a storyline with Jack Swagger (Cole's guy) and whoever Austin's guy will be.

The WWE will be manager-based, with all of the managers being guys from the Attitude Era (SCSA, JBL, etc.). The job of the managers is to put over their guy (the younger talent), by being in their corner, and being their mouthpiece somewhat. Don't be surprised if Paul Heyman comes back to the WWE at some point to back CM Punk and all of the guys who've claimed to be "Paul Heyman guys" over the years.

Take a look at this clip,


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdBSofk1c-Y

Listen to how Vickie greets Stone Cold in a backstage manner, and also listen to the way Stone Cold talks to Dolph (who looks extremely young here). They're talking about rising to the top, and how Dolph is Vickie's "project" and her "guy."

Another example currently in the WWE is Abraham Washington. He's been going around building up clientele for a while now.. Expect him to be the mouthpiece for some up-and-coming talent.

Here's another clip,

(fast-forward to 4:30)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R25FZLMVj6k

Listen to what Stone Cold says to Miz, talking about Miz being able to "talk" and Alex Riley being a bigger superstar someday (foreshadowing a future feud?).

Re: WWE is going to go "kayfabe".

Does this all take place before, or after, the TNA merge that you said was going to take place after Cena lost to Lesnar at Extreme Rules?

The gist of it was that the WWE will acknowledge that wrestling is scripted, and it will change formula to a show about managers trying to put together the best stables. This, in his mind, is why Abraham Washington has been scouting talent. Not as complex a theory as their WWE/TNA merge, but equally as farfetched.

I never claimed there'd be a merger..

I was wrong about Cena losing, but as you can see, I was right about him getting screwed. Johnny's screwing him and he'll make the jump to TNA before you know it.
