Has WWE Turned Into A Million Dollar Soap Opera Bombshell?

Has WWE Turned Into A Million Soap Opera Bombshell?

WWE, also known by World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. has been around since January 7, 1952. WWE was founded by Capitol Wrestling: Jess McMahon & Toots Mondt and Titan Sports Inc.: Vince McMahon. WWE has brought you wrestling entertainment for over 60 years and showcases some of the best athletes in sport history. In the early years of WWE shows it had a simple format of the over abundance of wrestling matches, heated arguments between wrestlers, and the short and discreet backstage interviews. This formula has been used from the beginning of WWE until about mid 90's. But all of a sudden, and without warning, WWE changed the format on the viewers.

Starting in the mid 90's, WWE had turned to cheap story-lines by even cheaper wrestlers, wrestling matches were now lacking due to the need to expose the WWE Superstar's egos and showboating ability, and WWE started using more adult material to pull in a larger fanbase. WWE had no real shame in what they did when it came to exposing half naked women wrestlers for a sex appeal to the male genre and the women wrestlers would even compete in underwear matches to achieve fame and fans. WWE Superstars would cross over into battle matches with job ended circumstances or making themselves into a horrible jokes for the big check. Good old american wrestling with our iconic heroes had went to the wayside for a high speed circus of steroid-out clowns.

Yes, amazing wrestlers like Gorilla Monsoon, Charlie Cook, Gorgeous George, Handsome Harley Race, Cowboy Bob Orton, Sargent Slaughter, Jerry "The King" Lawler, Ultimate Warrior. Bret Hart, and Mick Foley were a thing now of the past to make way for the New "So Called" Superstars like Randy Orton, Triple H, CM Punk, Dolph Ziggler, John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Bray Wyatt, Damien Sandow, Alberto Del Rio, and Heath Slater.

WWE has survived the past 20 years off crude humor, over the top drama, and poor story line plots. But how long can it last? The New Generation, The Attitude Era, The Brand Extension, and The Authority Era have definitely been the worst time in WWE history. It seem like WWE's CEO: Vince McMahon, WWE's CBO: Stephanie McMahon, and WWE's COO: Paul Michael Levesque (also known as Hunter Hearst Helmsley or Triple H) are beating a dead horse and are trying every angle of the market to keep their beloved WWE company from flat lining.
