Remember when WWE used to be funny?
Whether it was Rocky making Lilian blush when talking about pie, Rikishi dancing with Scotty Too Hotty or DX doing their usual shtick, WWE was always pretty funny back in the day.
These days it seems like the only time I even chuckle during a WWE event is when Michael Cole says something ridiculous or someone has a funny sign in the crowd.
Yes, I said Michael Cole. It has gotten so bad that he is the funniest thing in WWE right now. Jerry Lawler used to be hilarious before the PG handcuffs were slapped on his wrists.
Superstars, non-wrestling talents, managers and announcers used to all have a sense of humor about wrestling, and now it seems as if the everyone in the whole locker room lost their smiles.
Even in a PG environment WWE can be funny, but it stopped taking those kinds of risks when a certain family member decided she needed a nicer desk...on Capitol Hill.
Even John Cena barely cracks jokes these days, and he has been the resident smart ass for years.
Take some chances, WWE. Write a few jokes and see how they play. If they don't work then write some more, but please stop making us watch these endlessly unfunny shows.
A company can only take itself so seriously when its product is based around staged fighting, and Santino is not the only person who should be allowed to make some jokes.
Thanks for reading and please feel free to share your thoughts on what WWE can do to improve the three-hour format.
