For serious reasons: They want the brand to be the star, but shady deals and scummy practices ultimately damage the reputation which causes ratings to fall. They don't have the megastars to keep them stable.

Blaming 1 star is the equivalent of saying if only we had 80 chairs instead of 79, then the titanic wouldn't have sank.

If they put the belt on Lacey, WWE won't need to worry about AEW because they'll be losing to Impact.

Reap storylines from the past will damage it, not letting the wrestles do what they have to do to put on a good feud, refusal of building up stars is also damaging the company. CM Punk's words are still in my head on that podcast. Mox is right on the money, Vince kills whatever he touches.
The problem with your argument is that there is no correlation between product quality and audience numbers. Things like The Voice are garbage products but they draw big ratings. You need a hook or a person that draws attention to your product. How many well acted well written TV shows get axed every year because people aren't watching them?

Sheesh.
Absolutely. And I'm not even a big fan of women's wrestling, but Lacey has everything you could want in a top star. If they use her right and implement her marine background into her character more they could even put her in intergender matches which is something that hasn't been done much by mainstream wresting promotions.

As long as they don't put her in there with some monster like Brock or Braun she could believably beat a good chunk of the roster including the 2 current mens world champs.

That would be a fresh idea that would get a lot of media coverage and bring more eyes to the product.

B-but Becky is over. Look at the pops she's getting every week.

You're clearly not a women's wrestling fan if Lacey was your answer to solve the company's woes. Since there's, you know, women miles ahead of her in every facet.

The only thing Lacey has going for her is her character work and how to dedicate she is in it but that's simply not enough to all of a sudden make her the face of the company, let alone a Women's champion. She's terrible elsewhere.

Even if we go by those reasons why she should be elevated, then why can't she simply be a valet or TV personality then?

Lacey is a heel. They have too many faces and They will use her to take the belt off of one face and transfer it to another. Just like the rock and stone cold needed HHH.

You are all fucking delusional to believe any women can have any effects on ratings to begin with.

I am not sure why people suddenly forgot women wrestling doesn't draw and has never done it, they are just a filler part of the show.

What the fuck is this serious discussion about who should get what title came from? NONE ON THAT SHIT MAKES A FUCKING DIFFERIENCE.
