I completely agree with this. I think my biggest issue with the current product are the titles and the tag and women's divisions. First of all, WHC and WWE title need to be unified. This is so stupid and obvious. There are no longer two brands. It's confusing to have a "World" title and a "WWE" title. Also, bring back the hardcore championship.
I'm honestly past the point of thinking that WWE are capable
of fixing their problems. I don't think that they can anymore. I don't think they have the talent, knowledge or ability to do so. At this point, I honestly wish they would just scrap those divisions completely! Yes, despite all the history of the tag team titles, I would get rid of them & the division completely. All they are doing is tarnishing the legacy & making their current fans (especially the newer fans) grow accustomed to tag team wrestling not mattering & being nothing but jobbers. I certainly wouldn't bring back the Hardcore division, which was awful the first time. What, we need more generic comedy in the undercard? Who is clamoring for Santino Marella: Hardcore Champion with The Cobra hitting people with trash can lids? Not me.
I would get rid of Smackdown too! It's a complete waste of time. Hardly anyone even watches it. It has no bearing on the direction of WWE whatsoever. That's why WWE do Smackdown re-match three days later on RAW, so people will actually see them.
So many people around here talk about the things that they want but everything they talk about it just going back & trying to recreate the past. "Bring back the Hardcore division!" "Rebuild the tag team division!" "Do another brand split & draft!" "Bring back Steve Austin/Rock/Batista!" "Bring back TV-14 & The Attitude Era!" "Give The Shield a leader!"
What we need is NEW
shit. That's the problem!
We don't need
a Divas division. We don't need
a tag team division. We don't need
"B" shows. We need a fresh product, that is entertaining, that makes people excited & spreads word of mouth. We need a reason to tune-in, the actions of the superstars to have consequences. Wins & losses need to matter. Champions need to matter. Title switches need to matter. It needs to stop being so goddamn paint-by-numbers. What we don't need is to blow on the ashes & hope we can rekindle a little flame for a month.
