Sharing my thoughts, opinion, and historical facts on everything WWE both past and present
Back to Blog
Over the last couple of months I have done this series for a variety companies some where very in depth and other I surprised myself by how depth. However, I did want to cover all the companies ahead of the new year next Sunday. For this reason we are focusing now on the WWE and issues that 2017 has brought up but also the positives. The company has had quite the 2017 with both ups and downs but either way it has been an interesting year for the company. With tournaments and sights that most fans never thought possible this year has been crazy. I will say that the best way to get going with this is by focusing on the positives first before getting to the negatives.
In my opinion, the highlight of 2017 for the company is another tournament that took place in the latter part of the summer. This unlike last year was really a sight that I never thought I would see due to the idea of WWE actually giving woman the opportunity to showcase their skills in the ring. Based on this I think that the Mae Young Classic both in magnitude and just exposing the WWE fan base to new faces. Also the tournament was a great way to introduce fans to Kairi Sane and other talent that might be signed. The way this year has gone for woman has really shown just how far the division and the booking of the division in recent years.
The other positive thing in my opinion from 2017 is once again the change of pace from how the WWE had booked the tag team division in recent years. If the brand split didn't exist than the tag team division would be incredibly deep but also in a way very over bloated. Which is something in itself considering how many teams broke up this year but how many they still have. From New Day to Uso's to The Shield to The Bar the division is incredibly deep but could still be booked better. The reason I could criticize the company is because of how poorly the company has booked a number of their tag teams. Which basically is my way of saying they have the bodies but they aren't all totally credible. Even though they have the bad parts it is a lot better then it once was as it use to be very clear that the WWE didn't care about the tag teams but with the Ambrose & Rollins story being given the time it has shows how the companies perception has changed.
