Santino Marella’s on-going search for the general manager may or may not be to your tastes, but it represents something that WWE needs to do more of.
When you mention the Attitude Era, there are some who swear by it and some who call it overrated. In reality, it had its good and its bad. Of that good, it had “Stone Cold” Steve Austin at his best and a drive from WWE to keep the audience tuned in for every segment.
In trying to keep fans from switching to WCW, one tactic they often used were stories that played out throughout the night.
In every show on TV, it works.
The only on-going moments in WWE today, for the most part, are wrestlers setting up a match in a promo and then wrestling later on.
This really doesn’t count because matches could just as easily be made without the promo setting them up. Beyond that, it is so routine that is loses all impact.
WWE really should focus on those on-going stories that don’t make a show, but they fill in the gaps and round out a show.
Also, just wondering, but when Santino approached Chris Jericho, am I the only one who thought Chris Jericho looked a lot like Steve Regal?
