For better or worse, modern WWE usually makes a mess of the angles, booking and promos. That just leaves the match.
One of the issues with many of the matches in the WWE is that while the work-rate is excellent they come across as a buncha moves strung together rather than a story being told.

Yup. And that’s really the biggest problem with WWE as a whole nowadays: It just seems too choreographed. Gotta get those spots in. Pair that with the bad booking and it just feels like matches are just punched into a computer and simulated. Boring.
