Monday Nights Need Help
Ratings are down, attendance is even lower and the question is appearing on the doorstep of the wrestling world what is wrong with WWE. I've addressed this more than once and will address it over again that WWE needs help and they need to step back and rethink perception and problems. With talent cycling out the door like they were expired coupons. Now we step back and try to think of the best way to step forward against the current perception of the promotion.
The biggest question on Monday Nights right now is who will Brock Lesnar drop the WWE Championship to and will it happen at Wrestlemania. In nine days the "Road to Wrestlemania" will kick off with the Royal Rumble. In my opinion, the company needs to go the shock and awe route with the winner of the Royal Rumble. Kevin Owens, Riddle, Kofi Kingston or The Miz would be perfect shocking victors for the Rumble match this year bringing forward a crop of fresh matches.
The one focus I would have is on Riddle who is just coming off his recent run with Randy Orton as a member of RK-Bro and I'm not saying they should break up the team, but capitalizing on momentum wouldn't be the worst idea. It would also drive an interesting wedge between Orton and Riddle if they do intend on eventually breaking up the tag team. Giving AJ Styles a Rumble win would be both shocking and deserving for a veteran winding down his career still in need of this one achievement.
Giving someone on Raw the title victory and sending them on a collision course with Brock Lesnar will not be the answer to all the problems, but it will help change the perception. It isn't helping having the two World Champion feuding and that's why it's a good thing that according to latest reports it doesn't seem like Brock and Roman will collide at Mania. However, seeing Brock against AJ Styles, Riddle, or Kevin Owens getting the chance at the WWE Championship as it would be something new for programming. The plan needs to be long term to fix the staple of Monday Nights and this could just start things in the right direction.
