WWE Royal Rumble 2018 is the first destination on the road to the WrestleMania 34 which is very crucial part of the Roman Reigns, John Cena and some abundance of the other stars.
In all likelihood, we can have the very good explanation and understanding of what the WrestleMania card is actually and post this the Royal Rumble, can be really resulted in rather disappointing WWE Network subscriber numbers last year.
Probably, this can be attributed to WWE’s over-reliance on part-time stars which, includes, The Undertaker, Goldberg and Brock Lesnar, these stars actually dominated the build to last year’s Rumble event which is finally said to be delivered rather forgettable performances at that ceremony.
The Royal Rumble is so important because it is the foundation for WrestleMania, which was the most-watched event in WWE history last year and on this year also the series is all set to repeat the same success.
This is very of the Royal Rumble can’t be overstated as this is somehow poorly booked Royal Rumble could turn fans off to the product if it telegraphs which is having a pedestrian WrestleMania 34 card.
On the flip side, a tremendous show can drive up TV viewership and the WWE Network subscriber count, that is somewhat plateaued as of late.
In other words, WWE makes sure to that this wrestling mania should have a better and a good quality of booking which will be reflected on this Sunday, especially post it will be recent news on the number of marquee storylines, which includes the surprisingly boring Survivor Series main event.
Here are five bad booking decisions WWE which can be avoided at the 2018 Royal Rumble.
Brock Lesnar Retains The Universal Title
Braun Strowman may already be WWE’s top draw, which is the company that cannot risk halting which is also regarded as the momentum again just for the sake of Brock Lesnar.
Post this, “The Beast” is one of many top stars maybe drawing nearly also which can be expected, and there are still questions remaining about both his future and his past performances.
Critics said that “Lesnar’s matches keep getting harder to watch,” which is at least at one point, was planning on leaving WWE after WrestleMania 34.
Though his contract may be extended through August, the question remains: Why push him if and if he will be left and his drawing power is limited?
There will not any mistake about it, the art of one star is being bigger than WWE as this is the long game anyway, and that applies to Lesnar.
He’s not a Steve Austin, who sold 12 million t-shirts in a single calendar year, which indicates that he is not The Rock, whose return match resulted in the most pay-per-view buys in WWE history.
The nature of the business has altered nowadays, and it’s the WWE brand which is very crucial than any particular star, which is why the apparently never-ending push of Lesnar that is also baffling at times.
The entire idea behind his push can be regarded as the eventual loss which will help to establish a new star somehow.
It is now in this case of the Royal Rumble which is the place where he can lose the Universal Championship as the best person for him to drop it to be Strowman.
As this the WWE likes to say that Asuka is undefeated, that’s actually not true.
In a classic case of WWE rewriting history which is very fit own narrative, WWE selects to completely ignore the fact which is about the Asuka which was once eliminated from an NXT battle royal by, of all people, Eva Marie.
WWE can say Asuka is “undefeated,” but it’s more like “she’s never been pinned or submitted,” which is having her lose yet another battle royal that is regarded as the massive mistake.
She is clearly hitting her pace on the main roster, where she was the second most popular new star to make debut in 2017 behind only Shinsuke Nakamura.
Asuka has the “it factor” that can’t really be explained or simulated, and she is having some potential in the world to develop into the biggest draw in the women’s division if somehow the booking will be right.
It means that WWE will not repeat the mistake which is made in NXT by having her eliminated from a battle royal, that indeed counts as a defeat and can potentially delete a plenty of the hard work which effort to put into establishing her as a must-see attraction in this women’s division.
There’s no need to throw away this The Royal Rumble, where she’ll be in front of a much bigger audience now she is also suffered her first loss in NXT, even though WWE doesn’t acknowledge it.
The real money is in Asuka progressing to run roughshod where the women’s division until WWE can build up a suitable challenger who will benefit tremendously from being the first one to win this and this is one of the most dominant performers ever in the WWE history anyway.
