    I agree, @Mark. They can make the product look like a million bucks with pyro and LED everywhere but it’s just so awful right now. 3-hours is just too much. Hell, for as good as SD can be, 2-hours of WWE is too much right now. About the only thing they can get right these days is PPV. They need a breath of fresh air to hit that place and fast.

    Could it be that the paint by number production is finally starting to hurt them? They just don’t do anything interesting anymore. Here’s a good idea. Have a tag team championship match…the match is going along, and they go to commercial. You come back, the match is over and there are new tag team champions. People at home would by, WTF, but this allows you to push the WWE app that allows you to follow the action during the commercial break.

    Have a shocker like that happen. Thing is the WWE is in a rut. Follow Raw on twitter, see the reaction people have. You have fans during a live show prediction the outcome with 100% accuracy because the WWE uses the same formula every week in every match. You don’t always need to bring a name back to TV. Make your show at least slightly unpredictable. See if that helps.
