....wrestling is at it's best when the mid-card is strong.
it's suprising how many HOF/legends were essentially mid-carders their whole careers, or a good majority of them. It's the check & balances of the WWE really.

... when the protagonist of the company isn't someone about whom the audience is, at best, ambivalent.

... when bookers are on the payroll.

... when matches/PPVs/titles actually fucking mean something.

... when it's '97-'04.

Wrestling is at it's best when there is competition.

Competition is what makes people do their best work, without it, you can pretty much half ass it because there is no legit threat in taking WWE's spot as the number 1 wrestling company in the world. Competition equals better booking, logical storylines and some of the best work WWE has ever produced. History has proven that.

....when Raw is in Miami, NYC, Montreal, England, Chicago or Boston, and the crowd is good.

That, truly, can make a mediocre Raw fucking awesome. It is the most important element to a good wrestling show - a good crowd. After that, it's having wrestlers who can work the mic and be funny.

Toronto has good crowds too. But yeah, major cities usually have better Raws and bigger storyline angles are played out.

Wrestling is at it's best when something unexpected happens, either the beginning of a storyline or a surprising (but good) ending to one.

...when the midcard, tag and women's divisions are strong...and booked properly, not just tacked on as filler afterthoughts to the John Cena/Sheamus show.

They were the divisions that I was far more into as a kid and still maintain a dogged interest in to this day.
