WWE 2018 New Year’s Resolutions for Superstars


Take some time off.

I hate saying that, as I’m a big fan of his and someone who has been a supporter even when it was cool to hate on him, but he needs it so both sides can take a breath.


During his time away, he can decrease the bitterness he’s felt, while WWE can start to miss him, and when his return happens—be it later in 2018, sometime in 2019 or even in 2020—both will be much happier.

Jinder Mahal

Dude, you went from 3MB to being fired to being a rehired jobber to holding THE title in WWE, and you still couldn’t figure out how to do more than cut one single promo on repeat?

That’s unacceptable, particularly when you have writers who can help.

Take some acting classes and flesh out more aspects of your character so if you ever get another opportunity, it isn’t merely one catchphrase every week. Better people haven’t even gotten away with that in the past.

The Fashion Police

Get some rookies and interns to help you out on cases. Otherwise, keep it up.


Don’t let WWE forget about the glow in the dark title belt! You could be getting another title reign and they could get some decent merchandise if you can figure that out. Bug them.

Absolution / The Riott Squad

Just one: stop being copies of each other. Figure out some way—any way—to not appear to be the same generic idea copied and pasted from Raw to SmackDown.

On top of this, though, Paige needs to stop making the types of bad decisions that will adversely affect both her in-ring career and her personal life. It’s time to grow up and stop trying to be the rebellious teenager. Don’t date people who are toxic. Don’t do drugs. Don’t seek attention all the time. Don’t be a brat. It’s not cute, and everyone’s patience will wear thinner and thinner.

The NXT crop from these two stables merely need to work on improving themselves all around. They’re still somewhat new to this whole thing, so it’ll take time, but they can’t lose sight of that just because they’re already on the main roster. This isn’t the time to get lazy and rest on your laurels, it’s the time to make major improvements and prove that you were worth the company betting on you.


Come back from this injury sting with some major intensity and hopefully some character, or you’re officially as dead in the water as Buddy Murphy and Wesley Blake seem to be.

Zack Ryder / Curt Hawkins

I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing a reunion of The Major Bros. I’m sure Hawkins feels the same. At this point, I just don’t think Ryder will get a singles push either, so pairing these two up again could at least help the tag team division.

Mae Young Classic Competitors

For all the women who competed in the Mae Young Classic, the biggest resolution they must have in 2018 is to make sure WWE does not forget about them.

Some of them will assuredly still be on the radar due to their popularity and stellar performances, but others might fade away into obscurity, losing their opportunity for a future contract.

Of course, someone like Toni Storm has nothing to worry about, while Candice LeRae will find it easier since her husband, Johnny Gargano, is connected. But when it comes to someone like Kay Lee Ray, generating buzz and getting more positive attention on yourself can only help speed up your chances of coming back to WWE.

Cezar Bononi

Pick a pronunciation to your name and enforce it so everyone says it the same way instead of a million variations.

I’ve heard SEZ-zer, Sez-ZAR, SEE-zar, SAY-zar, Say-ZAR…

I’ve heard Boh-NOH-nee, Boh-NAH-nee, BAH-nah-nee, Bah-NAH-nee…

If you can’t get everybody to say it the same way, change your name. Nobody gets “Chad Gable” wrong.

The Street Profits

Save some of that swag for the rest of us!

Daniel Bryan

Let’s end on a serious note. With the way Daniel Bryan has been talking in interviews, he seems dead set on wrestling no matter what the situation, which may or may not be for WWE.

Even science isn’t an exact science, and it’s impossible to know whether stepping back into the ring is something that could be especially harmful to him or if it’s perfectly within the realm of safety.

Every doctor in the world could tell him that it’s too dangerous and he could wrestle 100 more matches and be perfectly fine, but just as easily, if not more likely, those same doctors can give him the go-ahead and he could wind up suffering horrible injuries, or worse.

None of us know the true extent of his damage, including Bryan himself, so while we might want him to get back in the ring, we have to be okay with the idea that it might not happen.

Bryan has the next few months to make the decision, but he needs to carefully weigh all the options from all the possible angles.

Does he figure out a way to convince WWE to let him wrestle, or does he wrestle elsewhere, knowing that he reaches a wider audience with the juggernaut, but has less creative freedom?

Does he risk his safety and the well-being of his family for his own passions, or does he bite the bullet and stay in the position he’s in so as to maintain his health while still remaining connected to the business he loves?

Nobody has the right answer, but in 2018, it will be crunch time for Bryan to make whatever judgment call he deems necessary, so he needs to go into that decision making process with a clear mind about all the possible avenues.

Those are my suggestions, but what ideas do you have in mind, particularly for the wrestlers who didn’t make my list? Do you have any resolutions for yourself this year? Drop your thoughts in the comments below!
