These are five reasons I feel the WWE is going in the same direction that WCW did in its dieing days and it could cause trouble down the road.
5: Celebrities getting involved in shows
It is getting better but the way that WCW used Leno, Rodman, and Malone is way that WWE is using some of their guest hosts.
The way that WCW had their questionable booking WWE is starting to follow the storylines are getting worse and talent is being wasted. For example on last weeks Raw you had three matches end by either interference or count out, that doesn’t help anyone and hurts both men in the match. Also the way the NEXUS were booked at Summerslam.
WWE is currently still making money but their stock on wall street is going quickly, WWE can blame it on what ever but the company is starting to fail with drawing fans in and making the money they are use to making.
2: PPV Buys
As we saw with the WCW Buyrates towards the end of WCW they were horrible and WWE buyrates this year are down 35% from last year and are still dropping
1: Over pushing talent.
With the likes of Sheamus, Del Rio, and NXTUS not working their way up the card and not getting proper pushes it looks like WWE is falling the New Blood version of pushing people too quick without getting fans to hate or love the wrestler with Shamus being champ after three weeks on raw and NeXUS in the SS Main Event. They also are pushing guys with generic gimmicks and no personality being shown with the worker EX. Dolph Ziggler, Drew McInyre, and the Tag Division.
Heres my attempt at a little lis here tell me what you think now rember that I’m not saying that WWE is going to die anytime soon.
