Thought of the Day: WWE Has NO Idea What They’re Doing

That seems to be the general consensus I get.Today I saw yet another article talking about how WWE needs to stop using part timers.  This year’s Wrestlemania will be headlined by matches including HHH, Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, HHH and Batista (not a part timer but that’s the general consensus).  Yeah Wrestlemania has been making a fortune with Wrestlemania, they’re going to make a fortune on the TV rights, they’re making a fortune off the Network and they’re giving the fans what they want with Bryan more than likely walking out of Wrestlemania as WWE Champion, but they clearly need to plan for their future because they’re headed for a cliff because of the part timers.

Why do people think WWE is blind to this idea?  Yeah, these guys are part timers now but here’s the thing: the current roster isn’t going to be around forever.  One day John Cena, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Sheamus and so on will be part timers and they’ll be headlining Wrestlemania just like the previous generation is now.  It’ll make money, WWE will continue to reign on high and crush whatever “competition” comes against them.

Now go and tell me that I can’t prove that and write three paragraphs explaining why so I can poke holes in it using logic and common sense to counter the argument of “I think it might go this way because I say so.”

    I actually enjoy the use of part-timers, makes Mania feel special.

    I don’t blame them for using part timers, I like the fact I get to see guys like Lesnar, Taker and Rock wrestle again, they just seem to rely on part timers a little too heavily at times.

    The only complaint I would have with using part timers (which really has nothing to do with the part timers themselves) is it makes the creative EXTREMELY lazy at times (which is my same issue with lets say MITB and the rematch clause). Once again that has NOTHING to do with the part timers themselves but a little too often they go the part timer route so they don’t actually have to think of something new people want to see, they can just say “Taker returns to RAW” and then call it a day.

    Are you really such a blind wwe fanatic that you can’t say. That the wwe has made poor choices and has seemed not to know what it’s doing at times?

    At times? Sure. With this, no.

    Well if you insist, You can’t prove that.

    I think the only logical argument against using part time wrestlers. Is that if something should befall them. They don’t have a backup plan, and it also suggests they don’t trust their current roster for the big shows.

    I’m not saying I agree with that point of view but at least that argument is valid.

    I highly doubt if someone got hurt that WWE would just stand there and do nothing until Wrestlemania. They would swap the roster around and figure something out.

    Call me crazy, but I’d rather watch Brock Lesnar vs Undertaker at Mania as opposed to Ziggler vs Swagger.
