As you say, the RAW roster may suck (I disagree, but that's not the point I'm making here) but as you also said, it's filled with the folks that get the big pops. Austin. RVD. Big Show. NWO. Booker T. Maven. Lita. Undertaker. The crowds love them, or "love to hate" them, and sell out venues to go see them live. To cheer or boo them. To buy merchandise.

You seriously expect Vince to toss that cash out the window? We internet fans have been huddling over our computer screens, bitching for months about how so-and-so and such-and-such should get more TV time. Or get TV time, period. The WWF has heard us, and this is their answer. We're already getting guys like Rico Constantino and Brock Lesnar on prime time, with promises of more like them on the horizon. And sure, it might be interesting to see if those guys could carry the show by themselves. But if I've got any kind of financial stake in this, I'm going with the sure sell.

What's that blue thing doing here?

But why do this mock split of the federation to get more people on tv? How about not having an hour's worth of backstage and interview segments every show? How about getting rid of dead weight and fat like the McMahons being on TV instead of getting wrestlers on there who need to be built up to help carry the company? How about giving some real direction in the booking instead of completely quarter assing the Invasion feud?

I know this was the most said line during angles like the Invasion and everything, but just give it some time..

You can NOT make the (casual) fan care about someone overnight just because we like him.
You cannot change the entire foundation of your federation in a week, and you will need to build the new style and everything.
Alas that takes a bit of McMahon or Flair and a big amount of talking, promos and sketches to introduce your new guys.

Will it work out? I don't know..recent history shows us it will not. But one can hope..

My article on local midget wrestler Lil Nasty Boy came out today in the weekly paper I freelance for. He wrestles for an upstart promotion run by Sandy Barr (father of the late Art Barr and frequent Nasty Boy opponent JR Barr).
