It kind of changes things. While their product might not be the greatest thing in the world right now, WWE has figured out how to make money like no other wrestling promotion has ever done. As a result, the company is virtually guaranteed to make a profit, no matter what they present. It seems that WWE has learned that too, and it will be changing how things are done going forward.
During the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed night one of this year’s WrestleMania 38 doing well, even without a World Title match taking place. As a result, WWE feels that it does not need a World Title match on every show, as it will continue to draw well no matter what. In addition, WWE receives the same amount of money from Peacock no matter how well the show does, meaning a World Title match is not required.
Opinion: This is not something that you want to hear as a fan, as while it means the company is doing well, it also means that WWE does not need to try that hard to make their shows that good. If WWE is going to be able to make the same money with minimal effort, there is no reason for them to try that hard. That might make sense for them, but it does not exactly make for the best results for the audience.
