When a season ends in major sports, fans are forced to wait for a new season to see what will happen next. That could possibly be a big case to happen for the WWE, after reports from Roman Reigns came out that he was looking to see if the WWE would give their wrestlers an offseason.
It may be a good idea for the wrestlers, but if you think about it, it may not be so beneficial for the WWE. Both Smackdown Live and Raw hold full rosters with men and women who perform all week, but some don’t receive the same attention as someone such as Reigns does for example.
It’s very obvious that the brand split isn’t working right now, and the reason for that’s due to WWE putting their same stars on both shows, instead of sticking to their brand split and focusing on who they could mold into their next star.
Whenever the WWE overuses stars such as Reigns, Seth Rollins, or Drew McIntyre, fans tend to tune out. When the news broke that Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman would be the new executive directors of Raw and SmackDown, many saw it as the possibility of underrated stars getting the chance to shine.
The WWE does not need an offseason, but what they need to do is give their top guys a break to build newer stars. Wrestlers such as like Samoa Joe, Cesaro, and Ember Moon deserve this opportunity. You could make a huge list of names deserving of the opportunity, but that would take a long time.
With New Japan, they tend to have a lighter schedule for their wrestlers before they’re involved in either a tournament or a tour. Considering the WWE is more of a global company, they need to find an alternative to giving their wrestlers an offseason.
Plus with AEW debuting on TNT on October 2nd, the WWE will be trying to keep their fans loyal to them, or it could possibly be the start of a decline for WWE who’ll against what may be their newest competition since their Monday Night War’s with the WCW in the 90’s.
If WWE were to ever consider this, it’ll be seen as something that fans may be forced to get used to, but if they do use this opportunity as a way to build new stars, this could be a huge help for both the WWE and the talent signed to the company.
