Recycling: Good for the Earth but not Wrestling.

Ever since resource shortages which were caused by world wars, the world greatly encourages recycling. But does that mean the wrestling world should do the same?
From the typical "bad-guy good-guy" to the old WCW NWO stables, the two biggest wrestling promotions of today (TNA & WWE) have reused the stables and story-lines that have made their companies bigger and better.
Two wrongs definitely do not make a right, but when TNA tried to repackage NWO and the Four Horsemen, they certainly earned the right to be more wrong than WWE.
When I look at TNA, I think its WCW all over again. You have Fortune who are suppose to be The Four Horsemen, and you have the NWO which are Immortal. The only BIG difference is that you have a druggie as the supposedly face of the company.
But when all else fails, TNA sure knows how to get rid of the WCW look alike Era. I'm sure WWE Attitude Era is right up their alley.
Not only do you have the WCW stables, but you have Attitude antics which were kind of similar to Eric Young, Orlando Jordan, and Shark Boy (For Shark Boy, VERY SIMILAR).
WWE on the other hand does not reuse stables. Instead, they reuse the same rivalries over and over again. John Cena vs. Randy Orton will most likely be Wrestlemania's top pick. It also looks like Triple H will duke it out against Sheamus once again at Wrestlemania. Until the WWE creates NEW superstars, we'll never get out of that era of "Old is New".
There are many great talented wrestlers that WWE is hiding from the viewers. For those who don't know, WWE has a developmental promotion known as FCW(Florida Championship Wrestling). And the roster for FCW is overflowing with talent. The faster WWE gets all of these new wrestlers to the TV screen, the better for WWE and the viewers. If you think that Dave Batista look-alike from this Monday's RAW was new, wait until you see Seth Rollins.
So far, WWE has already started the NEW year off with an OLD rivalry for Royal Rumble which is Orton vs. The Miz.
If the WWE wants something better, why not do John Morrison vs. The Miz for a last man standing match? What ever happen to the match type anyway?
I guess next year they'll come out with a PPV called Last Man Standing. I bet you'll never guess what that PPV will be about.
With the demanding fans of today, it is completely useless to reuse anything in the Wrestling World, especially when your product attracts 8 to 15 year olds.
