The huge problem that WWE will obviously face, is that the WWE markets outside USA are different from the US market.
Most of the fans I have met aboard, especially in Europe, aren't kids, but grown up adults and teens. They cheer for the anti-american heels and are also fans who tend to prefer wrestling to "entertainemnt".
European and most kids outside USA are rougher and ,sorry, more mature than US kids. Their relations to sexuality (nudity for example) or violence aren't the same. They tend to become quicker bored by the current WWE, than the US kids.
WWE could loss the European market fairly quickly.
From what I can read in non-english forums and listen during shows outside USA. Those fans wouldn't mind to watch more japanese wrestlers and various styles of wrestling into WWE.
I can be wrong of course.
Khali got a push.
I will shock you, but imagine WWE without Khali, it would be even more boring.
