Well, I am sure that everyone is happy that WWE is pushing young talent and trying to get more ppl to main eventers. This is a good thing, but I feel they should chill and actually spend sometime building the lower card (I mean midcard and possibly even undercard). Now I am aware that some ppl are gonna hate on this idea, but at least hear it out.
I know the main event is where the big money is at, but the midcard is where ppl should build interest in themselves, it should be the stepping stone for those that do not have the luxury on WWE backing them right off the bat in a mainevent feud. Now, I am not saying ignore the mainevent or anything like that. I am just saying that the midcarders should be showcased more, have ppl actually want the midcard titles, throw the occasional main eventer into the mix. Anything, just spend sometime shining a spotlight on the midcard.
Why? because that is where the future main eventers come from. I am all for the youth movement, but I feel all that effort should be directed towards the midcard and tag division and less towards rushing ppl into the mainevent scene.
So far all the attempts to make a new main event star have failed, the new guys are only being featured on PPV because there is no one else to put on PPV, outside of Cena, Orton, Edge and Rey there are no consistently present maineventers, add Big Show and Kane and that is about it for credible veterans. The only attempt that seems to be working is the Miz and if he loses the title to Cena at WM I fear he will soon be joining Sheamus and Swagger in the failed prospect line waiting to make a comeback. ADR certainly will be joining them if he wins the title.
If they want a successful youth movement imo, I think they shud start by putting these guys in the midcard and invest a year at least on them b4 trying anything mainevent. I mean a year of them hunting and winning midcard titles feuding with other midcard, in relevant feuds in a setup similar to wat the main event feuds get, maybe not as much time but at least 10 mins. The champ or his challenger always gets 15 mins of the show as promo time give the midcard champ and challenger even just 7 as opposed to having a random Mark Henry or Khali match. The quick push does not work, it just makes weak champs that no one cares about and how can you blame them for not caring (its not even the wrestler's fault they just have no history).
Well, that is about it for my rant, I think they should spend time heavily featuring the midcard if they are serious about the youth movement because so far rushing doesn't work, the only person that could have pulled off the rushed mainevent push, based on crowd reactions he was getting was Barrett but they put him on the back-burner and now his crowd reactions are shrinking.
What are your thoughts?
