With the top-tier talents of WWE who have been at the top of the stage for years, beginning to age and the tunnel to their careers coming to a end...it is finally time for a change!
In the past two years, WWE has been pushing hard to add on to the roster and provide more depth with young, inspiring talent.
We now have a group of talent that can and will do incredible things inside the WWE ring.
Just to name a few:
- Daniel Bryan
- Evan Bourne
- Tyson Kidd
- The Miz
- John Morrison
- Ted DiBiase
Even more names could be presented as the young talents have consumed the Raw and Smackdown rosters.
With Tough Enough starting back up; NXT still going; and FCW developing and building future stars, we just have begun to see what's to come from the new era of WWE talent.
But this could also be seen as a bad thing to some fans...as many fans see that proven veterans have not received a fair shake at the top.
As the rise of fresh new talent has begun, this means the end to the hopes of some veterans to be in the main event scene coming to the end.
This might not be a problem to some, as some may see it as a positive to help grow and mold potential talent.
But we just recently saw that WWE's idea of building new prospects did not sit so well with others. Others being like Matt Hardy.
Matt Hardy even went to the video sharing outlet youtube.com to vent his frustrations and thoughts. Matt continued to state that he kept receiving the green light to be pushed, but in the end, he was ultimately shot down all around.
We also hear frustrations from fans stating that guys like Chavo and Christian should get a push. Maybe we will see this happen when speaking about Christian, as many speculate he will have a huge role at WrestleMania 27.
As for Chavo, his chances seem grim and disappointing, as he has put in a ton of work and effort as every wrestler does, but he has done a lot to earn a top spot, some fans believe.
Like stated before, WWE has pressed the panic button already, for the Undertaker, Big Show, Triple H, Kane and even Edge's careers are almost near the end.
Not only that, WWE wants to get more athletic and young as they are no longer requiring/hiring talents over the age of 30.
As currently reported on sescoops.com:
"– A number of older independent wrestlers were informed by World Wrestling Entertainment officials that they are solely seeking to hire talent under the age of 30, especially those that would enter the company’s developmental system.
Is WWE going the right direction with the rise of young talent? Also not by hiring over the age of 30?
While not an official edict, more than four wrestlers were told this in recent weeks when looking into potential work with the organization.
– WWE.com announced today that Florida Championship Wrestling, the official developmental territory of WWE, is holding a four-day talent evaluation clinic March 4-7 in Tampa, Florida.
NXT season three contestant AJ Lee and Raw Superstar Darren Young are the most notable wrestlers to land contracts with WWE via FCW’s talent evaluation clinic. Both signed developmental contracts immediately following a tryout in May 2009."
This can be a major plus for WWE, as this will generate new scenarios for the roster and overall format of each program. This will mix up match-ups and change the stakes for performers in WWE.
What do you think of WWE's new direction? Is it a good thing or a bad move that they could have passed up some great vets that would have done great at the top? Express your thoughts and oppions with a comment below.
