They have some other ideas. One of the best ways to draw up some interest in anything related to wrestling is to add a gimmick of some kind. It might be to a wrestler or a match, but sometimes it is to a complete show. That can make for some interesting events, some of which are often better than others. Now we might have an idea of what we could be seeing in the near future.
According to Fightful Select, FOX and USA/NBC are pushing for WWE to present more themed events. This would include ideas such as a World Cup of Wrestling, featuring wrestlers from all three of WWE’s rosters and a points month, where a wrestler would receive points for things like using signature moves, winning matches, or various other things. Also, NBC is pushing the idea of more crossover events, such as tie-in with NASCAR or Sunday Night Football, such as a football themed show. There is no word on when or if WWE will run a show like this.
WWE has done some things like this before. Check out some of their other sporting ventures:
Opinion: This might sound a bit out there, but it is a case where WWE is going to have to listen to what its bosses want. NBC and FOX pay WWE a lot of money to air their television shows and it would be insane to make them mad. I’m not sure how much the fans will like these ideas, but if that is what the networks want, it is what they are likely going to get. It might even wind up working out in the end.
