Let’s be real here and not sugar coat anything- the quality of WWE’s product at the moment is really not at its very best. The WWE continuously relies on part time wrestlers to drive the ratings upwards, with wrestlers like Sting, Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker continuing to be used as rating boosters. In addition to this, so much attention is focused on these part time wrestlers, as opposed to the ones that are present every single night. This is just the beginning of many other problems that we will touch base on in this article. Other problematic areas range from overused and abused storylines, to simply meaningless programming. There is no doubt that today’s product is in need of some big time changes. With that said, here are 12 things wrong with WWE’s current product, and that desperately need to be modified or changed completely.
12 Storylines Dragging On For Way Too Long
11 3 Hour RAW
10 Tag Team Division
9 Intercontinental Championship Picture
8 Eat. Sleep. Tag Match. Repeat
7 The Death of Smackdown
6 The Hall Of Fame
5 Production Laziness
4 Too Many Live Events
3 Meaningless PPVs
2 Loyalties To Wrestlers
1 PG Rating
At the end of the day, many limitations to the program are caused by the PG rating, and many call this the reason for wrestling's demise in the past couple of years. The edgy, 'in your face' raw material that hardcore wrestling fans fell in love with is pretty much gone. Today, wrestling is much more scripted and promos are nowhere near the entertainment value that they used to be, and this is in large part because of the restrictions caused by the PG rating. Wrestling had an edge in the 90s and more importantly, you never knew what to expect. There was simply something so much more real to the product than the dry one today. It seems that all the new PG rating has done for the product is cause barriers and limitations. This has played a major role in many aspects of the company state today.
