Backstage News on Vince McMahon’s Return to WWE TV, Creative News on Heel Beatdowns

– While Vince McMahon was reported to be returning several times over the past few months, word now is that his return was always planned for January 2014 and they didn’t want to bring him back early but figured they would have to in order to help bump ratings during football season when things really started to dip. With John Cena back, Vince may be kept off TV for the rest of this year.

– Regarding WWE ending RAW with heels on the giving end of a beatdown, WWE’s creative team is booking it with the idea that if it happens at the end of a show, it makes sense for no babyface to come out to make the save because they’ve already left the building.

    Yea and the bigger problem is vince who many ppl that have worked closely with him over the yrs have stated in interviews and various other outlets that he believes if he cant remember something happening then the fans wont remember it either, which is just insanity. Granted Vince is doing 10 million different things on any given day so I don’t blame him for being forgetful, I just don’t understand how he doesn’t realize that the fans aren’t, all there focused on is the weekly happening of there tv shows, so chances are were going to remember things that happened just a few months ago.

    Yeah, in the end its the wwe “our audience has the mentality of a 12 year old, forget rational thinking”

    Well technically once there match is over there off work and have completed the task there paid to do. But realistically who actually thinks that the 15-20 baby faces on the roster just leave immediately after there matches, we all know they don’t and that they watch each others matches and hang out with each other backstage. Why not just say the more logical reason, which is why would anyone want to help the guy who for weeks had no backbone and just went around knocking out anyone and everyone the authority told him to, including a defenseless 60yr old man.

    Because the faces have already left the building??? That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. No, the reason they do it it is because “creative” (which as everyone knows is anything BUT actually creative) either thinks that EVERYBODY loves to see 3 or 4 or 5 on 1 beatdowns, or that NOBODY likes the see the face come out and save the day (think “here comes the cavalry over the hill!). I mean, having the face run out at the last minute and save the day NEVER gets any kind of pop from the crowd.

    “So the face’s bunk off work early? yeah that’s a good reason lets go with that…” 😛
