Latest decision proves WWE have run out of new ideas

Published 5 Comments

With WWE as it is now often being blasted as being no comparison to what it was some ten years ago, two huge announcements have been made regarding some additions to the industry.

Firstly, Triple H revealed the highly-anticipated news about the comeback of Tough Enough, the professional wrestling reality show which had a tenure of some ten years prior to being cut in 2011.

As if this was not big news enough, it was then confirmed during Sunday night's Extreme Rules pay-per-view event at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont that the King Of The Ring tournament would be making a return, starting during this week's episode of Monday Night Raw.

Rewriting history

Whilst both of these announcements will be welcome news to many WWE fans, they all but confirm the notion that WWE is heavily relying on what it had in the past in order to maintain interest and excitement levels now.

This is not to say followers of WWE are entirely unhappy with the latest storylines and goings on within the company, but more that it does not quite have the same impact on its Universe prior to the current PG era.

As a result, the inclusion of additions such as this will surely be a good thing and for the company's target audience of youngsters, it will also be something new and exciting to them by way of a different kind of WWE programming.

Interesting ideas

As for Tough Enough, this was the show which helped introduce us to the likes of Ryback, The Miz and WWE Diva Cameron through their involvement as contestants on the popular show.

Considering the number of seasons and thus contenders it had, however, Tough Enough did not exactly help pursue the life-long dreams of the majority of the wannabe WWE superstars as so many of them now have been forgotten about.

This makes it easy to question the overall success of the programme, but with it having had a break of a few years it may well bounce back as a new and improved and most importantly, interesting show which will boost the ratings of WWE programming.

As for the King Of The Ring tournament, this should provide a positive stage for those on the WWE roster who are yet to receive the push they deserve in terms of in-ring time.

Good decisions?

With it having been released as a pay-per-view event for nine years, it is clear there is a lot of potential which lies with this tournament, but its success overall will doubtlessly depend on those wrestlers who are involved in it as well as the outcome of the matches they take part in.

The last King Of The Ring was Sheamus who, following his part in the laughable 'Kiss Me Arse' match at Extreme Rules last night, should be seen as a good example of the successful nature the King Of The Ring tournament can have.

Ultimately it remains to be seen whether the return of both of these WWE brands will go down well with the current WWE Universe but there is clearly still a struggle within the company in terms of creating new ideas, as this decision certainly demonstrates.
