The Bullet Club is the answer to WWE's ratings problems

Football News

It is no secret that WWE currently have a serious problem with regard to their viewing figures, especially over the past few weeks.

Record low

As The Wrestling Observer has reported, the go-home episode of Monday Night Raw for Payback set a seasonal record-low with just 3.12 million people tuning in.

This figure is even more damning when you consider that, as well as WrestleMania 32 being only a few weeks ago, the show came outside of American football season, meaning there was competition for viewership.

WWE must, as a result of these poor ratings, look to The Bullet Club as a solution to its problems as they will prove the ideal catalyst in order to spark interest for any casual fans.

It is fans such as this who, at present, have nothing fresh or new to be excited about. A stable such as The Bullet Club would generate a huge amount of excitement from a whole new batch of professional wrestling followers.

Ultimately, overall, WWE is currently in a state of repetition, as there are two McMahons in charge in Shane and his sister Stephanie and the company is continuing to push Roman Reigns for what now feels like the hundredth time.

The Bullet Club

As a result of this, it is stars such as Bullet Club member AJ Styles who lose full-deserved focus despite being considerably more popular than Reigns will ever be.

In addition, WWE currently have the key members of the successful Bullet Club at their disposal, with the inaugural leader Finn Balor waiting patiently in the NXT wings for his imminent main roster call-up.

Alongside Styles, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, WWE must soon incorporate Balor and have the faction triumph over the rest of the company's current roster.

Don't waste time

The Bullet Club undoubtedly have the talent to prove their dominance over many WWE superstars and the company must not waste much more time in allowing them to do so.

Vince McMahon and his creative team should look to bring in Finn Balor as a new, cool and interesting dominant heel which in turn would capture the attention of the WWE Universe and ultimately make WWE cool again.

McMahon will also be aware of the comparisons which can be made between the future success of The Bullet Club and the success of the NWO in the 1990s.

This stable defined how successful introducing a new team could be with regard to improving ratings, as it took the company to new levels with regard to viewing figures.

Making a comparison such as this would also increase the interest of committed WWE fans, who would welcome seeing something which replicates the success of professional wrestling at its peak.

Ultimately, introducing The Bullet Club to WWE would merely be the start in what could prove a hugely successful method for not just WWE as a company, but members of its Universe who are tired of seeing the same stars week in, week out.
