Sgt. Slaughter has said he ‘wouldn’t change anything’ about the current product in the WWE.
In a recent interview with The Baltimore Sun, the WWE Hall of Famer said the WWE is an amazing product and he wouldn’t change anything.
He said: It’s a really amazing product. Look at how many matches there is a week. One thing I’m really happy about is that the divas are starting to make their mark now. They’re showing that they can be right there with the guys. … These days you have to stay in great shape.

“Back when I was coming up, you didn’t have the trainers and doctors and all the people that assisted you. You just had to take care of yourself. It’s great that now if you have a strain or something, there’s someone there for you, instead of just jumping in the car and getting to the next show.
"I tip my cap to everyone involved, from the writing and production team to the guys, because it’s an amazing product. I wouldn’t really change anything. It’s a new era now. This is the way they’re trained from when they go down to Orlando by the producers and trainers. That’s the way that the product is now.

“You have to keep up with the changes. I will say it’s a faster pace than I would really like to see it. But that’s the way the product is these days.”
That is the way the WWE is these days, they have to keep up with the times and change accordingly.
The WWE noticed this especially with the Divas division and reacted accordingly by introducing divas from NXT to the main roster. They also noticed this with how well NXT stars are being appreciated, and they reacted by pushing them up to the main roster as soon as possible.
One major thing that needs to be improved upon though is the mid card picture. They started doing this with John Cena becoming United States Championship and adding glamour to the card with the likes of Kevin Owens, Cesaro, and Neville.
However, it seems to have taken a backwards step recently with the ignorance of the WWE towards those three superstars, as I believe they have not been given enough title shots. They have shown in matches they can deliver the goods, so why not given them a run with a championship around their waist?
