The WWE hasn't created a single star and deflated whatever stars they had.
I'm talking about Stars from other promotions, global stars like AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Shinsuke Nakamura and Kevin Owens.
At first they did capitalize on AJ Styles' tremendous talent but as of now, he's really being wasted on someone like Cedric, just so a bunch of boring as fuck guys like Rollins and Strowman could mainevent and the ratings are historic lows isn't it?
Kevin Owens wasn't the next Austin but at least he could have been booked properly but we all know what they did with him instead.
The WWE right now has all these tremendous performers/wrestlers only ON PAPER, but in reality, none of them is a star, only barring Roman, AJ and Daniel Bryan(Top Tier), with Kevin Owens never really reaching his full potential, and Joe, Elias, Rusev, and Bray Wyatt and even Cesaro just being buried over and over, or booked inconsistently. That's five fucking guys who are NOT STARS, all because of the WWE and their folly.
Now the one guy that arguably is a star is Roman but even he hasn't been consistent owing to an untimely Leukemia remission, return and lukewarm midcard feuds since that return.
Meanwhile, one of the most atrociously boring, bland, and overrated guys in Seth Rollins (and people thought Reigns sucked, but it was Rollins all along, because frankly, Roman vs AJ in 2016 was awesome and interesting as fuck, but none of Rollins' matches or feuds are interesting) is BURNING IT DOWN..the product sucks, the ratings suck.
And let's not even say anything about female Seth Rollins aka Becky boring Lynch and her annoying crap, and the whole bunch of women or the women's division, which couldn't even retain viewers let alone draw new viewers, and in fact the overpushing of a bunch of fucking women and saturating Raw and SDL with women's wrestling plays a part in the historically low ratings. Reason? Women are NOT stars, never were, never will be, unless if you consider Sable and Debra doing whatever they did, 4-5 minute segments on Raw in 1998.
Yeah Sable was a star, but not an Austin-mainevent-star. Is Becky? I don't think so. I wouldn't even watch a bunch of women wrestle in mainevents if they paid me to, as long as Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns, and AJ Styles were around. Because in Wrestling, Men are the stars, and if they're not stars, nobody cares, which is evident in this currently grim, wasteland of a WWE TV scene and deadened interest in the product and diminishing viewers.
So women never were stars and Becky stuff is flop, and men aren't stars(owing to Vince's own folly, inconsistent booking, pushing Rollins), and so where do we go from here?
Brock isn't going to be around forever(and his schtick has been repetitive and ad nauseam itself), and not even Uncle Austin and Uncle Undertaker's appearances help at this point. Where are the stars? Who can be the next big star(Male, that is), and will the WWE capitalize on that person? Could it have been Kevin Owens?
For now, the only three guys I see as the true stars of the company are Roman, AJ and Bryan.
And then you've got a midcarder-for-life pancake-throwing ridiculous goofball as your WWE champion. Yeah, Kofi Kingston sucks and will never be half the star as Randy.
