Nostalgia… We all love seeing things from the past come back to us to bring back memories but is WWE relying on past talents too much.
At Survivor Series a week ago Bobby Roode and Shinsuke Nakamura were both pinned by eventual survivor Triple H. Triple H should be putting these young talents over as he has done with Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins.
3 of the last 4 men in the survivor series main event were aged 47 to 48. This implies that WWE doesn’t believe that their “future stars” can hang it with the old guys.
The only “man” left that wasn’t a legend was Braun Strowman. That is abysmal. Survivor Series is normally the time you show who is going to be a future star.
The last third of that match was so slow. You could tell the legends are wearing out and they are not as fast or strong as they used to be.
The only memorable part of the match was the late Triple H turn on Angle, just to turn back onto team Raw again.
If you were to watch NXT you would see fast paced matches such as the terrific war games match. War Games was a match not seen since the 1980s and they made it work extremely well.
Pretty much everyone in that match is over now and can be taken seriously by the fans. However, how can I believe that Bobby Roode can beat the likes of Aj Styles if he can’t even pin a 48 year old man who steps in the ring 2-3 times a year.
My point is why should we care about the new guys if they are buried by guys who are older than a black rhinoceros (these are extinct).
Triple H reportedly arranged this matchup so did all he want was the opportunity to stand victorious again and by doing that did he stop the development of the future of WWE?
All WWE have to do is keep the past away from the present/future. Imagine dinasours ruining our modern earth today. This is what nostalgia in WWE is like and it needs to stop.
