My name is Pravin Singh and this is my debut article here on Bleacher Report.
It is a fact, that WWE is experiencing a crisis right now. Ratings on both shows (especially Smackdown) are low, many of their biggest stars, such as Shawn Michaels, Batista, Chris Jericho and Edge have left the company and pay-per view buy-rates have declined dramatically.
I do not fault the wrestlers/entertainers for this, I think the majority of the blame lies with the executives. Head of Talent Relations, John Laurinaitis, has been under fire lately, for failing to get stars to re-sign, while WWE creative has been criticized by the IWC (Internet Wrestling Community) for being dull and predictable.
Another issue in my eyes, is the state of the WWE announce team. Michael Cole is a cliche heel announcer, Jerry Lawler is a cliche face announcer and Booker T is just cliche, period.
The only good announcers they have, Matt Striker and Josh Matthews, are being terribly underused in favor of the three guys above.
Now, the criteria for the list are:
1. What the person has accomplished during his/her time in the industry and how good they were in the role I've specified that I'd like to see them in.
2. How much of a difference he/she can make in today's WWE.
Oh and by the way, the person must be physically healthy enough to do the job, so don't expect to see guys like Bobby Heenan on the list.
So, without further ado, here are five non-wrestlers I would love to return to WWE, either in a televised or backstage role, or both.
