The latest word is that WWE creative is working on a major angle for the summer. They are working on an idea that will be big, similar to the original NEXUS angle in 2010 and the CM Punk angle last summer.

It is said that there is a lot of pressure to come up with something, partly because of the low ratings and partly because of the state of the current product.


Attitude Era guys vs. PG Era guys?

Re: WWE creative under pressure to deliver MAJOR angle

They need to think of something quick because a lot of the more interesting things they've been doing is becoming stale very quickly.

An angle similar to Nexus? So, they'll build a stable of guys for Cena to bury. Sweeeeet!

Nothing is going to be bigger than Lesnar/Heyman/HHH anyway so that's irrelevant.

not even an angle with the Attitude Era guys vs PG Era guys? I bet this angle is gonna start on the 1000th episode of RAW.

I can't wait to see how they screw up whatever big angle they come up with like they did with Lesnar's return, Nexus, Punk's push to the top, etc.

Re: WWE creative under pressure to deliver MAJOR angle

Its the SummerSlam build up. I'm guessing Vince pushes hard for a good SummerSlam angle. They were able to deliver two years straight w/ Nexus & CM Punk's face turn.

I'm thinking Orton heel turn to either stare down Sheamus (and officially make him SD's face) or CM Punk (who is more likely to be facing Big Show).

Brock Lesnar kinda proved not to be the money generator they had hoped but he will definitely help the SummerSlam bottom line w/ a superfight with HHH.

Regardless of what it is, if Cena and HHH aren't in the angle, it won't be as big as what they are doing at the time.

That is how it'll be booked anyway.

Do people actually pay for this 'insider info'? I could've fucking told you they need a major summer angle, anyone with a brain could see that.

Please yes.

And it's happening.
I really hope not. I'd prefer a PG era vs Attitude era storyline. This would be much more appropriate to introduce the new 3-hour Raw season and highlight the 1000th episode.

Re: WWE creative under pressure to deliver MAJOR angle

Brock and HHH is the big storyline of the summer.
They need to be there every single week for this to be THE big storyline.

The angle needs to shake up the product. It has to top the last 2 years and make it count because an Orton heel turn ain't gonna cut it when he was a heel just over 2 years ago(unless he gets involved in something bigger), nor another basic storyline like Punk/Hardy or HBK/Jericho. Make it grand to the point where the product goes into a more serious, cutting-edge direction.

I don't know what this storyline will be about, but I know one thing:

Cena goes over.

Exactly this! What is the Observer charging you subscribers? I will charge you a quarter of that and produce the same storys for you. :lol Another vague, obvious story posted by the Observer, brilliant!

Hello, the "Creative Team" is always supposed to be delivering "major" storylines, its their JOBS! Eventhough, its pretty evident that its all on Vince right now b/c everything goes through him.

Plus, w/e "major" angle (outside of Brock/Heyman/Lesnar) they come up with it will:

A. involve Cena
B. Cena will be put over by it (although Punk last summer and Rock at WM make this the shakiest of my predictions)
C. Will be horribly rushed to create a small "pay-off" at a minor PPV, rather then letting it develop properly and produce pay-outs at multiple PPVs.

At least prior experience would lead me to beleive these things.
