WWE’s condition reportedly ‘couldn’t be worse’ right now

Triple H Vince McMahon

WWE needed to make some big changes and for that reason, they brought Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman as Executive Directors of SmackDown Live and Raw respectively. How big a difference that will make is still uncertain.

According to a report by Fightful Select, a source revealed that WWE’s condition is so bad that it could not get worse. This says a lot about the company and change is definitely needed. However, with Vince McMahon still having the last say in everything that goes on in the company, the changes might just be superficial at best.

One said things “couldn’t be worse” than they are right now, and another noted “Vince is still in charge, so that should tell you everything.”

So the new roles for Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman might ultimately not make much of a difference at all. However, we do hope WWE improves its product eventually.

    It’s almost like these things are a business, and exist for the purpose of making money, not making a niche fanbase happy. If Star Wars catered to the leftover fans of the original trilogy, maybe it would’ve been better recieved critically, but it would’ve been remembered as a commercial flop.

    The effects of this is more long term. You end up turning off a lot of the hardcore fan base. And once you lose your hardcore fans, it’s only a matter of time before you lost most of your fans. Corporations love short term gains, but rarely take into account what effect their actions have long term.

    I don’t think either Paul or Eric would accept these jobs if they didn’t have a lot of control over the product. Neither of them need the money, especially Eric.

    I mean, hey, since buying the franchise, Disney has been crapping out one awful, half-assed “Star Wars” film after another, at least one per year. And most of them have made a billion dollars or more, even The Last Jedi, regardless of how lackluster or outright genuinely garbage they are. So having or making tons of money doesn’t exactly speak for quality. And it certainly doesn’t speak well for the audiences who keep pouring all of that money into bad products.

    I wish my condition “couldn’t be worse” while being with 5 billion dollars.
