Daniel Bryan and Wyatt family mean WWE have run out of ideas

The WWE is suffering from short-term memory loss.

On Sunday night the world sat down and watched WrestleMania XXX and on the card was a match which was dubbed as the 'Attitude era vs New Reality era'.

I refer of course to the Shield's match where they defeated the New Age Outlaws and 'Corporate' Kane.

Now I enjoy WrestleMania as much as anyone but this year, a sickening thought hit me. Are the WWE running out of ideas?

The more I thought about it the more the evidence just began to pile up, it started when I predicted the outcome of pretty much every match except the almost impossible to predict Andre the Giant Battle Royale.

Then I started to think and of course the big name coming out of WrestleMania was Daniel Bryan, who had one gruelling match and then had another gruelling match but SOMEHOW, walked out with two title belts *cough* Chris Jericho at Vengence 2001 *cough*

Bit on the nose really but ok, what about the current storyline between Bryan and 'the Authority'?

Surely that is nothing more than a clear imitation of the Stone Cold Steve Austin v the Corporation storyline of the Attitude era?

One rebellious superstar who has a cut-throat, 'I can do it' attitude against a cruel, evil and sadistic boss?

Its not just Daniel Bryan who is representative of what could be called 'WWE Deja'vu'.

What about the always interesting, disturbing and strangely popular Wyatt Family?

A group of three superstars who dress strangely, perform acts that force the commentators into a state of shock and also have a gimmick that hasn't really been explored before, yes the Brood were awesome.

Wait, did I say the Brood? I meant the Wyatt Family, oh well they're pretty much an imitation of the Brood anyway aren't they?

What about the storyline that pretty much no-one will be surprised if it happens? the reformation of Evolution.

Batista, Randy Orton, Triple H and Ric Flair once formed the supergroup and even though the Nature Boy is no-where to be seen right now, we pretty much just need them to come out to the Evolution music for it to be complete.

We always have rumours of the return of Degeneration-X but not for a long time have we had three ex-members of DX all active superstars at once.

Now with Triple H heavily involved and the New Age Outlaws back in the fold, its another thing that wouldn't really surprise anyone if it happened.

Two big names were lined up for appearances in a WWE ring following WrestleMania, everyone's favourite high-flyer Rob Van Dam returned to Raw on Monday.

RVD came back and I won't lie, I loved it, he was always a popular figure in the WWE/WWF.

The second big name is a man who many feel could be passed his best, who they thought would be the one to take on the Undertakers streak next year at WrestleMania, a man who has been in both WCW and TNA previously, Sting.

While we still sit and wait for Sting's appearance he is the only none return/ imitation in this list.

So why is he on it? Well he was one of WCW's best, a big name in TNA but always seemed to just be living out his career and now WWE pursuing him is another seemingly backwards step.

So there are six different things the WWE appear to do which has pretty much been done before so the question now comes up, Have the WWE ran out of ideas?
