The WWE CAN put out a great product in this era.

In this current era of WWE we're currently in, the booking & storylines are aren't very great, & it's NOT because of the TV-PG rating, here's why. Two years ago, we saw 2011 WWE Hall of Fame inductee Shawn Michaels challenge The Undertaker week after week, attacking The Undertaker in the process. At one point even going far enough to mock the The Undertaker by dressing in a white version of The Undertaker's trenchcoat & hat. And it all culminated in a classic match at the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania, filled with great false finishes & even a 'suicide dive' by The Undertaker. Now, fast-forward to the WWE Extreme Rules P-P-V 2009 event, where Jeff Hardy defeated Edge to win his first ever World Heavyweight Championship. However, only seconds later, Hardy's celebration was interrupted by then 2-time World Champion & back-to-back Money in the Bank winner, CM Punk. Punk took advantage of the defenseless Jeff Hardy, & cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase to win his 3rd World Championship. This moment would lead into fued of the year (2009) & one of the greatest heel turns in quite some time. This fued was filled entertaining moments, thrilling twists, & ultimately Jeff Hardy's "retirement". This fued MADE you want to tune in next week to see what happens next in this fued. Another reason this fued was successful IMO is the conflict between the two wrestlers. One was a Straight-Edge Superstar, who had a no nonsense attitude, while the other did drugs, & lived live in the fast lane. These two types of elements is what makes a fued great, is when you have conflict between two people, who are polar-opposites of each other, & the CM Punk/Jeff Hardy fued of summer 2009 is a perfect example of this. And these two fueds happened all in the "PG Era". These fueds are perfect examples of the rating not being a major issue, but rather the WWE writers. I'm not sure if the WWE needs a new team of writers altogether, or they just need the writers of the fueds mentioned to come back. Those are my two cents. Please leave a comment.
