WWE Is Paying for the Last 8 Years
with the 2.5 rating and the overall poor numbers they have done this year, its there own fault

who have they pushed in the last 8 years, a guy who is clearly not over but dominates every week

when lesnar is brought in who does he face, hhh who is not a full time wrestler, if they go ahead with the rematch is does nothing except fill hunters ego

undertaker facing hhh AGAIN does nothing for the future, we saw that match twice at mania before but they go ahead with it again, 2 guys in there 40s who don't even wrestle anymore (barely)

with the rock and lesnar and taker all at mania, its drawing big number anyways, so why not start pushing new younger talent and build for the future

wwe has done nothing for the future, cena and punk are the only 2 guys on the roster who can draw, both are aging and worn out with nagging injuries

so where does this leave the wwe right now, ryback is going to be a bust, if thats the guy there banking on i feel sorry for them

vince will probably rush cena back, but that is a short term fix and will not address the real problem this company has

vince should of pushed younger talent atleast 3-4 years ago and turned cena heel last year if not before that, now there screwed

Star power is definitely missing right about now with the impressive talent that we have today. Orton and Jericho could only do so much. The day could happen, but it's not gonna be at this moment in time.

Re: WWE Is Paying for the Last 8 Years
OP is pretty much right on everything - especially Taker vs HHH, I really get the vibes HHH thinks he's on Undertaker's level and booked this match so it'd look that way. My biggest gripe about this match is when people say "well, there's no other stars that are credible enough to face the Undertaker"... yeah, because the booker's have been doing horrible jobs with writing storylines and sticking people with bad gimmicks, and HHH is one of the guy's with the most power in the company right now... go figure lol.

Also, I think you are right on the money with the Ryback thing as well, I personally get annoyed with the guy because his gimmick is a blatant rip off of Goldberg, but beyond that I do think there is star quality there - he's a big, scary looking guy, but when he has trouble lifting up Tensai, that makes things look really bad. If Goldberg wasn't able to lift up the Big Show in the Jack Hammer, I think it really would've fucked up how fans perceived him.

That being said, Goldberg goes from beating people like Heath Slater to feuding with CM Punk, it's like the WWE is pushing the guy, but in a bad sort of way, he was just getting out of the low card divison, he should be feuding with a few mid card guys first. Not to mention that the guy has been in developmental for a long time and it still appears that he can't really wrestle that well.

Johnny Ace was a poor successor to JR in talent relations. They should never dropped OVW.

They have the talent, they don't have the creative team. Anyone who says they don't have the talent is not watching the same show as the rest of us. It's an issue of creative not using them properly, shitting build ups to matches, bad feuds, lack of feuds, caring more about merch sales than a good product, which would naturally boost sales.

WWE is trying to eat their pizza without baking it first.
