WWE legends are the answer to the company's serious problems

There is little argument that WWE have a huge array of talent at present, but are simply not utilising it in the right way.

Now more than ever, it has become apparent just how many incredible athletes make up the company's main roster, given it is currently dealing with so many of its biggest names being out of action.

With the likes of John Cena, Seth Rollins and Randy Orton all taking time away from WWE at the same time, it should be the perfect opportunity for the mid-card wrestlers to be given a deserved push.

This, however, does not seem to be something those in charge of WWE care enough about as fans have become even more familiar with the repetitive story lines and average matches. 

Having experienced this state of despair for some time now, the WWE Universe appears to be giving up hope on the company which they once loved. It is unquestionable that WWE needs to turn to the people who put professional wrestling on the map and who now proudly represent what it really means to be a WWE superstar.

Foley's Words 

Many of these WWE icons now make up the prestigious WWE Hall Of Fame and the most recent legend to air his views on the current state of the company was none other than Mick Foley.

Foley is known for being a professional wrestling icon for a number of reasons and is often vocal about his feelings towards the several situations the business has been faced with of late. Given his latest Facebook Post was entitled 'Final Raw For Foley?' however, it could be a while before we hear more of his popular opinions regarding WWE.

What was perhaps most interesting about Foley's latest post was that he seemed not directly angry at WWE's latest content, but more sympathetic at how different it is from when he was one of the leading names.

As the 50-year-old legend stated, "Today's WWE Superstars (I'm including the women here, since the term "Diva" had its time, and that time is done) are at a distinct disadvantage in some ways." Foley went on to say how WWE's PG rating has such a detrimental effect on both the story lines and WWE superstars themselves.

His words are doubtlessly true in that the lack of blood and colourful language, as much as it may be more child-friendly, means the WWE creative team are left limited as to how far the talents of the men and women on the roster can be stretched.

This struggle has resulted in several repetitive story lines and forgettable editions of both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown.

Simple solution

In turn, the short term answer for WWE would surely be to promote some kind of return from a number of ex-WWE superstars and legends.

The feud between The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar went down so well with fans that having several WWE legends involved in a number of ways with the current roster would surely be a hit with the fans.

After all, this would mean incorporating experts when it comes to professional wrestling, who would surely bring a creative spark and fresh insight which those in charge at WWE now, seemingly do not have.
