i have noticed that lots of people on here are disapointed by the current story lines, champions, main events , ppvs etc etc.

well guys what would you like to see, who should get pushed? who should be elevated to main event? what matches would you encorporate into ppvs?

Dolph Ziggler needs a push with consistent wins over the weeks with an actual story possibly involving Christian and Cody Rhodes. They seem to be doing that now anyhow.

Get the stars to take acting lessons especially Eve and laurinaitis

Sack Tensai.

I'd love to see this:

- John Cena becomes WWE Champion
- The Miz becomes World Heavyweight Champion
- Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara feud over the Intercontinental Championship.
- John Morrison returns and wins the US Championship
- CM Punk gets fired forever
- Daniel Bryan gets fired forever
- Rock is never seen again

I would like the WWE to completely restructure their company model and launch their product into an exciting new direction. It doesn't matter who they push right now, said wrestler would suffer from being part of the show as a whole. It wasn't the push of Stone Cold Steve Austin that made the Attitude Era so great, it was the WWE's shift from familly friendly entertainment to edgy tv that reflected contemporary culture. The Austin character would've never thrived in 1995 WWF. You can push Dolph Ziggler to the moon, but if his segments are preceded and followed by lame Hornswoggle skits and meaningless Diva matches, it loses it's effect.

Yes, WWE needs to change. I'm not saying go back to "Attitude" or TV-14, you can keep it family friendly for the most part, but delivering something that feels different would do wonders. I've been saying for years they need to jack the style TNA does for backstage segments. The shaky documentary/film look makes everything seem more spontaneous than some lame ass camera that's magically everywhere.

I'd like them to try new things, like making the US, Tag, IC, or Divas matches main events. Okay, so it'd be rare to see a Divas title match headline a PPV, but with the right angle and right performers given time, then why not give them RAW or Smackdown's main event slot? But for PPVs, I'd like to see the other titles rotated into main event spots. What, are people going to ask for a refund if Cody Rhodes vs Christian goes on last? What, you'd rather see Cena vs. Big Johnny? GTFO. Give some of these guys Main Event spots and see how they perform. TNA did this in 2005 with that X-Division Three Way with Styles/Joe/Daniels and that match saved that company IMO. You don't need to always do this, but if the Main Event is going to be a ton of bull shit, then why not give people something you know will be a good match to end the show?

I'd like them to streamline the shows a little bit, trim the dead weight, thin out the roster a little bit and focus on creating some decent midcard angles. The tag team division needs a shake up as well.

Under usual circumstances i'd have a probrem with the IC title main eventing a show as there needs to be an established hierarchy with the titles, but there are times when the circumstances called for it like Bret vs Davey in Wembley.

As for Divas main eventing a show, they'd really need the right performers and feud to pull this off. In recent memory, the only Divas feud that actually deserved precedence in the main event over the guys was Trish and Mickie James from 2005. Had you given away their blowoff match in the main event of RAW, it wouldve worked brilliantly. On Wrestlemania 22 however, not so much..

If you're going to hotshot guys/girls in main event segments, it needs to be for the right reasons. I'm still in favor of gradually building towards that privilege, but once they get there and prove themselves worthy, they should be given an opportunity to reach greater heights.

Unify the titles. Both the world titles and the midcards. Expand the roster, and build every wrestler up. Stop the short fix stories. Make longterm plans, and stop having title matches at every PPV. Make the titles more important than anybody. Make the selection of the contenders a very important thing. Dont base you ME around 3-4 faces and no crediable heels. Stop the embarrassing comedy stunts. I like comedy wrestling, but stuff like Neidfart needs to stop. Richardo and Santino are excellent at comedy. Know the difference. WWE's biggest problem is expanding their timeslots, without saturating the fans. Every show should have a clear direction, and offer something different.

Another one is beyond kayfabe, but they need to think about their wrestlers. The supershows are depleting the roster, and some have looked tired for a while. More drugs to keep going and work through injuries. More time away from home leading to shaky relations. Only a selected few is doing the media circuits. No downtime or holiday for stars especial the ME stars. It hurts the product, and it hurts the look of the product. Orton is an example of this. He had his concussions before Royal Rumble. Came back and looked hurt. Worked ok, but not great. Worked through mania. Kept on working, and was inserted into the WHC fight. Orton hasnt looked good this year, and I think he never had the time to fully recover. He pushed himself back, so he could get the big WM paycheck, but used drugs to keep going. Another case would be Cenas divorce. With a broader roster, including the ME, then some of those things might be avoided.
