New Year’s Resolutions. No, that’s not the name of WWE’s newest January pay-per-view – those are given far more descriptive, often disturbingly phallic, names. Like Great Balls of Fire. Or Crown Jewel(s).
No, I’m talking about the common year-end tradition of undertaking to change an undesired trait or behaviour, in order to accomplish a personal goal or self-improvement. Whether it be to spend more time in the gym, to work less, eat better or visit family more often, we’ve all got designs on how to make next year even better and more productive than the last. After all: new year, new you and all that!
Although the practice is normally reserved for individuals, surely we could all agree that corporate conglomerates stand to benefit just as much from changing a thing or two. Possibly even a thing or twelve if that company happens to be WWE.
Speaking of which, I’ve conveniently picked out twelve such areas in which WWE could improve itself in 2019. Go figure. This is not an exhaustive list of course, as there are countless ways in which the company could do better in the coming year. Don’t have people indiscriminately piss on things, for starters.
Instead this is meant to address only the major areas of concern, those which could have the most immediate impact on the product going forward. Although there is no guarantee that WWE will take any of these ideas on board, there is nevertheless no better time than the present to introspect and make some considered choices on the path forward. For as Mark Twain once so eloquently said about New Year’s Day:
“Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself, Marky T. Let’s get the ball rolling with something we can all agree on.
