I honestly felt like watching Raw last night was more of a chore than a form of entertainment. With the exception of the Jim Ross/C.M. Punk segment, everything felt so vanilla that it was really hard to sit through live. You can almost see the bookers and writers operating off of some kind of flow chart in the back that is labeled low card, mid card etc. Also, the attention to detail is almost non-existent. For instance, I might have been somewhat surprised at how easily Cesaro defeated Brodus if not for the fact that Brodus Clay's entrance which makes up for 99 % of his diminishing appeal was left off TV which is never a good sign. So instead of turning Clay heal and seeing how he runs with it, all those wrestler burying squash wins he accumulated over guys like I.C. champ miz, all that heel squashing was for nothing. Since Clay's squash run happened such an eternity ago in the minds of the short sighted writers(2-6 months), creative has already forgotten about it. I would go so far to say that if you figured a ratio of creative team members to quality of product, then the WWE is producing the worse wrestling in the history of the business(comparitively speaking). Can you imagine if Paul Heyman would have had access to the wwe budget for writers and agents? How about Bill Watts in the Mid -South days? I don't even think that Memphis could have produced the poor quality of crap that the WWE produces these days. Am I in the minority in my thinking on this issue?
