Re: Black Cell?
WWE should have its own identity instead of copying TNA's black cage. A blue cage might be a good idea for WWE actually, since that was the color of the cage pre-Attitude, although the look of their cages is one of the least important things to change to freshen up WWE's product. Their set has been basically the same for 15 years and they've basically used the same logo for 14 years. WWE is basically still using the Attitude Era set and Attitude Era logo, but are presenting a product that resembles the pre-Attitude product more than it resembles the Attitude era product. If WWE is going to continue targeting pre-teens as their core audience, they should adopt a cartoonish look for the product, as they did the last time pre-teens were their target audience. Colorful outfits for the wrestlers would help as well. The problem WWE has is that they want it both ways. They want a pre-Attitude era product that superficially resembles the Attitude Era. If WWE wants a cartoonish product reminiscent of the late 80s or early 90s, they need to fully commit to that direction.
