WWE: Doing What’s Best for Business & the WWE Universe

Written by  Published September 5, 2013 08:21
For the first time since the departure of Stone Cold Steve Austin the WWE is finally not to be missed. Since the August 18th Pay –Per-View event Summer Slam the WWE has been more compelling, more fan centric and ring savvy than it has in a decade. With top story lines like the Triple H going corporate and forcing the giant Big Show and his personal enforcement force The SHIELD to suppress the voice of the locker room talent and all the while torturing the underdog and most sensational ring tactician since Triple H - Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson).


Bryan is the best babyface in years and that face strangely enough is covered in daniel bryana lumberjack like beard and the “can’t be the face of the WWE” tag brings fan to frenzy levels in arenas because Bryan brings the fan support and his counter Randy Orton (the current WWE Champion and corporate heel) brings the derision.

In the absence of John Cena for the first real extended period of time the WWE is making good on the opportunity with some real future properties.

Add to this the most intriguing of the new acquisitions the dastardly and spooky Wyatt Family and their brainwashing of the monster Kane. With a reveal little and destroy much approach the WWE directors, writers and producers are in full stride and it feels like a new golden age is dawning in the world of pro wrestling or more accurately sports entertainment

shieldThe talent in the current pool is deep and Ziggler, Rhodes, Christian, Jericho are names well known but the introduction of the SHIELD has made the tag team divison reminiscent of Evolution or even the Horsemen. Add to these the Diva’s champ AJ Lee and her cray cray skip dance and there is a plethora of fun for everyone.

CM Punk, Curtis Axle and Brock Lesnar keep the Heymanverse intoxicating, Undertaker is biding his time and to top it all off we have the return of RVD. This is wrestling. This is top product as promised.

But that isn’t all the WWE has branched out again – into reality TV. But this time instead of the usual ‘watch as we look for talent” show like previous endeavors like Tough Enough (which gave us wrestling gold in superstar The Miz) but a look into the world of the new glamor…the Divas.


WWE Total Divas Brings All Demographics behind the Curtain in Compelling Reality TV

Why is a grown man watching reality TV called Total Divas? It is something Itd ask myself as I set the DVR for Sunday night in anticipation of the next episode.

What is going to happen with Arianne and Vincent, will it be a train wreck? Will Naomi (Trinity of the Funkadelics) and her boyfriend Jon Fatu (Jimmy Uso one half of the tag team The Uso Brothers and one of the twin sons of ex-WWE great Rikishi) get married? Will Natasha see that she can just…well ,do way better in the man department and most of all WHAT NEW SECRET MOMENT WILL A MAJOR WWE STAR REVEAL THIS WEEK?

The WWE and E! have made Total Divas irresistible to WWE fans to which the show smartly and deliberately catered without pretentions of design on any other audience and actually acquired some interest from many national news shows, ET and of course the afore mentioned me on my couch fumbling for the remote.

This is about what it takes to be a WWE employee at the highest level and why everyone can’t do it. Im in, I recommend the WWE like at not time in recent memory.
