WWE are masters of creating something huge out of the ordinary. At this point of time, WWE creative needs to take some big risks in order to get the raw ratings back where they belong. If rumors are to be trusted, the ratings are rock bottom considering last 18 years of Raw.

The need of the time is to take some bold steps, may be similar to the attitude era where they did everything to win Monday night wars. Here are some ways to go back on the top of mountain:

Push The Mid Card Talent

Back in golden times of Monday night wars the mid card talent was indeed special. Every other guy had the hunger to become champion.

The talent of Cesaro and Kevin Owens is world class. The Wrestling moves are just insane. The strength of Cesaro and his overall in ring skills deserves a push. Maybe not too interesting with the pipe bomb, but as a wrestler he is right there on top.

The other mid card guy who should be in the title picture is Kevin Owens. Yes, he is carrying gold round his waist but owes to have more. From in ring qualities to his overall attitude, Owens is best for business. With the pipe bomb in hand, Owens is unmatched, the perfect bad guy who has all the skills to become a future hall of famer.

The Timing involving The Shield

The three members of the Shield are the focal point of every big story. With Rollins suffering from injury, it’s about time another Shield member turns heel. The time was perfect for someone like Dean Ambrose to show his back to Roman and create his own identity at Survivor Series.

It feels that Roman is on the verge of becoming the next John Cena. The never give up attitude along with some limited moves, Roman is seen as the next face of the company. However, Roman caught all the hype as a nasty member of the Shield where he was ruthless and did every bad thing. His life as a lawbreaker was indeed much more enjoyed than this anticipated hero avatar.

Separate The Two Titles

Everyone wants gold around the belly and it's one way to push superstars to the next level. It not only works as motivation but also helps create a new story. To unify the title was a good idea but it’s about time the separation takes place.

Whenever a feud involves a title, it gets more exciting and fun to watch. Some mid card talents might also become part of the story for the World Heavyweight title. As Rollins got injured, the authority had the chance to bring back Heavyweight title but the opportunity wasn’t utilized.
