And so much for that. There are a lot of criticisms about modern WWE and one of the biggest is that they do not seem to have a plan for a lot of things. That can create some serious issues, as you can feel like you don’t know what to expect day to day. Some of these things are more serious than others, but one played out in front of the audience this week on WWE TV.
This week’s Monday Night Raw featured an in-ring promo between AJ Styles and Grayson Waller. Apollo Crews ultimately interrupted, saying that since Styles’ original opponent, Omos, was not present, Styles could face Commander Azeez instead. Following a commercial break, Crews faced Styles instead, with the explanation being that Crews wanted to give Azeez the night off. Following Styles’ victory over Crews, Azeez came in but was taken out by Styles as well. There is no word on why WWE changed the match so soon after making it in the first place.
It was a weird way to go. Check out how the match went, plus what Styles could have faced otherwise:
Opinion: I have no idea what happened here and unfortunately I don’t think WWE has the best idea either. This was a great example of WWE seeming to make up their stories as they go and that is not going to work for anyone. At the end of the day, WWE needs to do a much better job of planning things out. If they can’t stick with a plan between commercials, how are they supposed to make it through WrestleMania next year?
What do these changes mean for WWE? How can they make it better? Let us know in the comments below.
