Anybody home? Most of what happens on a wrestling show takes place inside the arena. That makes for a pretty simple formula but at the same time, it puts a firm limit on what can happen. You can only feature so many things inside an arena, where there aren’t a bunch of options for locations. That’s why it makes sense to take things outside of the arena, and what better place to go than someone’s home?
And stay out.
WWE has posted a video of the Top Ten Shocking Home Invasions, looking at ten instances where someone took a fight to someone else’s home. These entries range throughout history, dating back from the late 1990s all the way to modern times, ranging over a variety of companies. Most of these involve a fight breaking out, but several of them are just someone showing up at a house and scaring someone.
Opinion: I wasn’t expecting much from this list but it turned out to be something pretty fun. This is an idea that works a lot more often than otherwise because it’s fun to take the action outside of the arena. Doing the same things over and over again are only going to get you so far but taking it outside of the arena is going to allow you to do something different, which is going to stand out.
Which of these is your favorite? What did WWE leave off the list? Let us know in the comments below.
