I want to talk about a serious issue that I think we as wrestling fans all thought of. The lack of build-up for future main event talent. The issue is that, the current writers are pretty much stuck on the same ideas, and they seem to be unable to come up with new ones. They recycle Cena's happy-go-lucky main event matches.
They don't go anywhere with someone like Sheamus. Sheamus is just there, y'know. He just stands there as a World Heavyweight Champion, that's pretty much sums up his entire WWE run. He doesn't develop from holding the title. He doesn't become anything more than another stale persona.
Sheamus started at the WWE as a heel, which fits him PERFECTLY, but apparently the WWE decided that he is a good 'face' character. They don't do anything constructive with him. They don't develop his character... NOTHING. He just feuds with people for some stupid ideas. Like his recent feud with Alberto Del Rio, which was such a load of cr*p. Not only did this feud not get both of them anywhere, it actually pushed Del Rio 10 steps back.
I see a lot in the future of Alberto Del Rio, and his future supposed to be NOW. He is supposed to be the one holding the title, and not Sheamus. Alberto Del Rio is very talented and very giving character. And he has a good delivery on the mic, despite his common use of Spanish. He can really bring it to the crowd, and the crowd likes him for the reason he sells his villain character well. The reason why Sheamus is awful, is because he has no delivery as a face. He had a better delivery when he was a heel. As a face he just stands there and shouts: "I'ma destroy you, FELLA!" And that's pretty much it.
WWE writers are in lack of knowledge of what the professional wrestling used to be like. They seem to be recycling the same corny 'good guy vs bad guy' storylines over and over, untill we get sick of them. For once, I would like to see a 'heel vs heel' match. Let's say CM Punk vs The Miz. Now that's something I would pay money to see. But c'mon now, getting stuck with this 'good guy vs bad guy' thing is starting to get stale, and people are starting to get sick of them. Because most of the time it's the same happy-go-lucky ending for every feud.
Let's say this: Cena announces every 3-4 months that he is going fora long goodbye, but yet he comes back after that and wins the belt. That's what makes it all predictable. I know that his recent farewell is because of his injury, but give me a break, he will come back, and he will win. That's what happened with Barrett, that's what happened with The Miz.
The writers need fresh Ideas. They need to start using gimmicks, otherwise it's a waste of time. There aren't many gimmicks in the WWE anymore. For example what is CM Punk supposed to be? A 'Angry boy' character? What is The Miz supposed to be? "A arrogant angry boy"? I mean, you get my point right? There aren't really that much of gimmicks, like it was during the 90s and 80s. I miss those times when everyone was different. When you had place for all type of wrestlers: fat, skinny, average, black, white, chinese... whatever, you had place for all of them. Because back in the day they could build gimmicks around them, but now? No one really knows what is the gimmick of those people. You tell me? Now we have this type of matches: 'Angry Pretty Boy' and 'Angry Tattooed Boy' vs 'Superhero Boy' and 'A Bad Ass Pretty Boy'. You get my point? That's as stale as it can get. The only different wrestlers I've seen built are Ryback and Sandow. Sandow is a BRILLIANT character, because he created HIMSELF. Ryback is now being pushed as a future main eventer. I wonder what is in stored for this two.
