Last Sunday’s pay-per-view, Summerslam, is touted as the WWE’s second biggest event of the year, only second to Wrestlemania.
The main event featured Triple H and Brock Lesnar, which was hyped to be more of a fight than a professional wrestling match.
Both wrestlers are usually not seen weekly on Raw and Smackdown since they are technically part-time wrestlers.
Similarly, this year’s Wrestlemania featured The Rock against John Cena. While John Cena is a regular on WWE programing, The Rock comes and goes as he pleases much like Triple H and Brock Lesnar.
The focus on talent that works on a part-time basis to draw a crowd, while entertaining, limits the full-time superstars’ time and potential.
The fact that WWE is using part-time talent in their main events instead of wrestlers on their full-time roster is hurting the overall product.
