Changing the Big Show's character again shows a lack of direction

Published 13 Comments

The WWE have been going in a very strange creative direction for several months now and even the fans have gotten on their back about.

From the re-emergence of the Authority in late December to the controversial ending to the Royal Rumble, the WWE Universe have had a lot to complain about.

2014 was filled with moments that the fans will be talking about for years, Seth Rollins turning on the Shield, the Undertaker's unbeaten WrestleMania streak ending and Sting finally appearing in a WWE ring.

That final one saw the Authority removed from power back in November and gift the WWE with the unique chance to start everything afresh.

That chance was wasted however as the Authority were back in power just over a month later with WWE failing to capitalise on their golden opportunity.


There have been countless face and heel turns in WWE history and tonight's Smackdown may have harboured another one.

A superstar known to change his allegiances quite often is the Big Show who's most recent heel turn came at Survivor Series.

Tonight in the tag team turmoil match when teamed with Kane against Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns, he and his partner were having some problems.

The match ended after the Big Show delivered the knock-out punch to Kane but received a spear from Roman Reigns.

Out of ideas?

Yet another character twist from Big Show could be an showing that the WWE really don't know what to do with the Authority.

Two character turns in less than three months is a remarkably quite time frame and even though it is unclear if tonight's events completely take the Big Show out of the Authority, it still shows a lack of direction.

Removing a character from the Authority may show more than just a lack of direction, but perhaps a lack of faith in their own product.

It wouldn't be the first time in the short year that is 2015 the WWE have changed their plans.

The original plan for Roman Reigns to win the Royal Rumble was thought up months ago but when it happened and fan favourite Daniel Bryan was eliminated so early, the crowd were less than pleased.

Rather than sticking to their convictions, they then tried to appease the fans by pitting Reigns against Bryan at Fastlane with the winner moving on to headline WrestleMania.

By doing this they put themselves in a difficult position of either having Bryan lose at Fastlane and see another PPV end in a chorus of boos or risk doing an exact repeat of last years WrestleMania.

They could always book both Reigns and Bryan in the main event at WrestleMania but Bryan losing would surely cause the biggest stage of them all to hear boos whilst Bryan winning a tripel threat match would literally be a repeat of WrestleMania XXX.

So what will the WWE do? Who knows, their creative path is always somewhat of a mystery and they are currently faced with their biggest challenge for several years.
