That’s an odd criticism. There are several different pieces that have to come together to make a wrestling show work. While the in-ring action is going to receive the most focus, there will also be various events, such as promos or segments, that are used to make people care about the matches. Now we are hearing about some shows that set someone off in a strange way.

During the latest edition of The Extreme Life Of Matt Hardy podcast, Matt Hardy revealed that Vince McMahon would occasionally say that there was “too much wrestling” on a show. Hardy did not list any shows where this happened or what McMahon would have preferred to have in its place. McMahon is also known for describing his version of WWE as “sports entertainment” rather than professional wrestling.

There have been some shows with a lot of action before. Check out a few of them:

Opinion: I get the thinking behind what McMahon said here, but at the same time, it is one of those things that does not make sense on the surface. Just hearing a wrestling promoter saying “there is too much wrestling” does not make a ton of sense. At the same time, having nonstop wrestling is only going to work so far without a reason to care about what you are seeing.

What do you think of McMahon’s comments? What kind of match/segment balance should a show have? Let us know in the comments below.
