Ummm pretty sure nxt takeover blows away most wwe shows every fucking time they go on during big weekends . Been a ;ife long fan since 86 and have pretty much zero interest in WWE. Still believe they have amazing talent and only hope for the best with AEW getting big and making WWE cut back on the silly sports entertainment and go back to "pro wrestling".
They are not better.Does this really surprise anyone? I got back into wrestling awhile ago due to the amount of pure talent they have gathered but quit watching again due to frustration with them wasting that same talent to chase the same trends and gimmicks they have since the eighties and nineties, ie, the same things they have always done because Vince is in control and is an old dog refusing to learn new tricks. I’m really waiting for him to either honestly retire or get pushed out and Stephanie and H to take control for real and not just the camera, I bet you the product gets 10 times better.

Nah he really is just plain bad. Can't cut a decent promo, can barely wrestle, looks like a moron. One of the many reasons i've not watched raw in months now.
Not really saying they are, but they do seem to be next in line and I would rather not condemn them until they make decisions without Vince have final say on everything. They may ruin the product just but for know we really don’t know.
Is this a work or a shoot, I can't tell
I mean, they've held a near monopoly on mainstream wrestling in NA for the past twenty years. And they've done shit-all with it. They have mad money, an amazing roster of workers (both men and women) and like a billion hours of television to showcase as much good talent as they want. And they're putting out fucking garbage. So when you have people that clearly love an artform like Pro Wrasslin and see it denigrated into this formulaic illogical mess of garbage, mad people are gonna be upset by that. If Transformers-era Michael Bay was the only one allowed to make blockbuster movies, people would be cynical and complain about that shit too lmfao.Wrestling threads on era always seem to boil down to some dick waving contest on who'se more cynical and over it. It doesn't make you an interesting or clever person.
Anyway, I'm not sure how AEW will do. the general public's appetite for pro wrestling comes and goes, and given that the indie scene seems to be somewhat healthy, it could be time for a second national promotion to gain a foothold. Its obvious that WWE isn't offering anything that is capturing people's interest, especially that younger demographic that they made bank on in the Attitude Era
Some notes regarding different things of late. Paul Levesque, while never saying anything publicly, those close to the situation say he’s very frustrated with how things are going on the main roster. One person noted that a big problem isn’t Vince not being open to suggestions, but that they believe he’s far too open these days to suggestions and that it ends up watering down all the original visions and storylines. We’re told that there has been too much input from too many people on the team who haven’t figured out that when you change something in a story, it has a ripple effect on every aspect of the story. He solicits input on so much from so many people that it leads to things being watered down. There is a question of how Vince is going to cope with things early next year once the XFL starts. I can recall in 2001 when everyone doing both was just exhausted during football season. For better or worse, Vince’s workload is crazy now. He’s often in the office past midnight, close to 3 a.m. at least once a week and Friday’s his easy day, he’s working until 8 p.m. It’s mostly work and lifting weights, and occasionally watching some football on the weekend. The feeling is once the XFL starts, even though he says nothing will change, that it is simply impossible that’s the case unless he spends little time on the XFL. And since he’s got so much riding on the XFL, and is spending so much money on it, I can’t see him staying out of it. Regarding the family, Levesque picks his spots to talk with Vince, but never does it in front of anyone. Stephanie has nothing to do with creative. Shane does pitch ideas for himself but they rarely get used
Yeah... I really struggle with the heat guys generate today, and I can't tell if Baron Corbin is 'fuck off heat' or not. Like, "get the fuck off the TV" heat. Where as, the heat of a heel 15-30 years ago was legit dislike but the fans wanted you to stay on stage/ring/TV to boo you.That is true; with the current shows, having blood probably wouldn't help. I'm not expecting it to be CZW tournament of death every week with JEEZUS Zandig, but at least some heat. For as much as I hate him, Baron Corbin does draw legit heat during his promos; if his wrestling were as good as his promos, he would be outstanding.
