News broke this week of Degeneration X's possible induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. Degeneration X was definitely instrumental in shaping the wildly successful attitude era. But with group inductions now in vogue, the Hall of Fame figures to be the latest in a string of WWE entities to become devalued.
The WWE seems to struggle with discretion. Many successful ideas seem to be one themed pay-per-view away from dilution, with once novel concepts suffering from overexposure.
Diluted WWE properties lose meaning through an addition of sort. The unwarranted increase reduces once precious entities to mere sideshows.
