Re: I don't like this "new" WWE...every fan favorite wins

We complain about WWE being obsessed with HEAT on this board year round. Practically every Raw, SD, and PPV of the year of the year, especially these past few years, it's noting but HEAT HEAT HEAT. It even became somewhat of a meme on here (and other places); WWE's obsession with HEAT.

If there is one show/PPV of the year where the HEAT should get settled, it's WM. And yes, in this particular case/year, all 3 should've won. If WWE books nothing but HEAT 364 days per year, the one day of the year where it will get settled is WM. I tried telling people before WM that all 3 of the babyfaces would win, and one of the big reasons why would be WWE's recent obsession with HEAT over the past couple of years. I'm not gonna say every babyface challenging for a top title is going to win at WM every year, but this was one of those years where all of the stars aligned for it to happen. Who knows when it will happen again, but this was one of the few years where it was going to happen and was the right call.

And just because they all won doesn't mean they're all going to have long title runs. That could change in an instant, as well (which would be cool with me, because I'm not a fan of long title runs, even for my favorites).

WrestleMania is becoming a glorified Tribute to the Troops. For some reason (booking, crowd) it's impossible for a heel to win at TTTT...

All the nice guys winning all the time is not how life works. And it's really boring. Ask most actors and they will tell you that the evil characters are by far the most interesting to play. The Little Mermaid was an incredible book with a heartbreaking ending, but of course Disney had to change it into a 'happily ever after' ending. Seems Disney has done the same to WWE.
