Default Part-timers

What happened to the days when part-timers were actually part-timers? Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, Ric Flair, Hogan, Nash and Hall... All these guys were part-timers because they didnt work a full schedule. But they did wrestle matches or tag matches on Most Raw's or SmackDown.

Nowadays the part-timers (Brock, Rock, Triple H) wrestle every 3-4 months. Why not have them wrestle on the Raw's they appear on? Get them in a tag team match where they can interact with today's superstars. These guys are world class athletes they're very unlikely to get injured wrestling a hot tag in a 10 minute match. Look at Chris Jericho as an example.

Couldn't agree more, rock should be wrestling on raw, triple h should wrestle on each raw now, Brock lesnar should demolish people on raw every week, this stuff frustrates me with the wwe

There are various levels of part-time. The Rock is a special attraction now as is Brock Lesnar. Triple H is semi-retired.

The Rock and Brock Lesnar only wrestling PPVs makes WWE more money than if they wrestled on Raw and in PPVs.

More people will buy the PPVs to see them if they are only wrestling there. WWE doesn't make a bunch of extra money if a Rock or Brock match adds half a point or a full point to the ratings on a given night. Meanwhile, selling an extra 50-200k PPVs makes them a FUCKLOAD of money overnight.


While you may not care how much money WWE makes, and only care about what you watch, perhaps you will at least understand why they hold them out, and not complain about it anymore since it should be understandable why they only wrestle PPVs. We're talking millions of dollars here.

Shawn Michaels wont be back full time wrestling.

As for Taker, he will be back at Mania to defend his streak.

I think i'd still complain. Good product and making money should come hand in hand. They shouldn't be focusing on making money so coldly. Personally, I couldn't imagine tarnishing my creative reputation the way WWE does for the sake of business. Truly baffling.

Hopefully Lesnar's new contract required him to make more RAW appearances.
