Would competition be better or worse for todays WWE?

Everyone obviously knows what happened last time with WWE when they had competition. WWE was forced to raise their game and brought in Attitude Era.

This time around though, if WWE has competition, would it be better or worse for them? Lets say magically ,some company came out and starts having 3-4M fans in USA watching their show weekly. And superstars in WWE knew there was another company out there that was doing almost as well as WWE, would this lead to superstars trying to up their game in order to help WWE, or might they just decide to leave WWE and go to the other company?

Would WWE writers start trying and putting on a good show, or what?

Cause in todays WWE, it seems like the writers don't try, and superstars in the company don't do anything about it if they're not being used properly. Cause the superstars and writers know that if superstars complain about their position in the company, they'll likely be buried and/or fired, and have nowhere else as good paying as WWE to go. But if another company came in with the audience and similar contract size that WWE has, they could steal away superstars.

But would that be better for WWE(cause product quality could increase) or could it hurt WWE(meaning WWE could start getting even worse cause superstars are leaving). I'm not saying if an increase in product quality will hurt WWE, I'm just saying that competition could go one way(which is increasing quality of the show), or it might just as easily go the other way(meaning quality can't increase cause everyone is leaving)

Competition is exactly what the WWE needs right now. It would make everyone at the company step up their game.

Re: Would competition be better or worse for todays WWE?

The only problem is wrestling has completely fallen off the mindsets of the general public, while competition would be great for the WWE, it only matters if wrestling matters again.

Wrestling needs awareness, much like professional boxing desperately needed Manny Pacquiao to achieve mainstream relevance again, albeit for a short while since now he looks to be nearing the end of his career.

While people may bash the Rock for being a part-timer or transitional champion at least he is bringing awareness that the WWE and professional wrestling still exist. Right now, it looks like the WWE and VKM are more concerned with just staying a float and turning a profit than bothering to be relevant again.

too bad all the awareness is only going to one company and the company isn't even a wrestling promotion anymore

Re: Would competition be better or worse for todays WWE?

It would depend on the competition itself. If its just another carbon copy of TNA then they wouldnt have too much to worry about and they would still be complacent but if another WCW happens to come along and im talking about the early years btw and they had some stars of their own and truly original ideas then i would say this may cause WWE to raise their game. At the same time though WWE would still be the better known and more popular company because of how well their marketing structure is, they still have household names in Cena/Rock and possibly Punk and Sheamus etc. WWE supserstars are always make guest appearances on shows on the USA network and Jimmy Fallon etc. Unless this other company can reach these levels of popularity i still dont see them being a threat. It takes more then good wrestling nowadays to get noticed its sad but true. You need about as much exposure as you can get.

Re: Would competition be better or worse for todays WWE?

TNA will eventually bring it. I know people see that as a joke because they are coming along so slowly but they are still progressing and have two guys like Hulkster and Sting in control.

You can say what you want about Hogan but tbe man brought wrestling into the mainsteam so unlike Cena and HHH who have done nothing for wrestling compared to Hulk, he has every right to burry guys because without him there would be no business for them to get burried in.

He knows the business and TNA will succeed. Instead of talking about anti bullying shit and bragging about their make a wish contributions, they give great matches every night!

Look at the Christian York guy, he's a stud who is now the most over guy they have after Hardy and it only took a couple of weeks. How did they mamage to do it? They hired a guy with talent who works his ass off. WWE wouldn't know talent if it was already on their roster.

Pretty much this.

Let's look at the two greatest era's in pro wrestling history:

Rock 'N' Wrestling Era: Wrestlemania launched that era, who was involved? Mr T, Muhammad Ali, Liberace, Cyndi Lauper. All mainstream stars. Hogan and Piper were also mainstream stars due to MTV spots and Hogan's involvement with Rocky.

Attitude Era: Wrestlemania 14 launched that era, who was involved? Mike Tyson, Pete Rose, Gennifer Flowers. All pretty controversial, which is what VKM was going for following the very convenient controversial incident known as the Montreal screwjob.

Wrestlemania 28: The Rock - mainstream, but mostly known for being a wrestler, Flo Rida, Machine Gun who? Maria Manounas? Wrestlemania 28 doesn't really match up, does it?
