I think the Main problem with the WWE writers (not that i know anything about them). Is that i recall a story oneday about how Vince McMahon has basically gotten a few qualified guys straight from College, that, although they are good writers, they didn't know much about the wrestling industry, and they know even less about what makes fans happy.

I'm probably the one of the more optimistic wrestling fan around, but you can be sured that alot of fans have been unhappy this year. And although they have started using new ideas, they are coming too slowly, and there is not enough of them.

For instance Booker T and Goldust teaming up, is just a poor rip-off of the rick and sock connection. I think that Booker T and Golddust work well together, and it's entertaining, but it's stiull a rippoff.

Also the GM war, is just a rip-off of WWF V WCW back in the mid/late ninties. Once again, it's better television now than it was last year, but it's hardly a new idea.

I'd hate to point the finger here, but i think this is Vinces Doing.
Remember the Montreal Incident. After that occured, Vince Realised that him being an owner, and the heat that he recieved after Montreal, that Owners could be evil. He saw a real life event, and he captured it on TV.

Sure, this was the turning point of the old Monday night wars, but because Vince gotaway with it then, does not say that he can then turn another real life story into a success.

Sometimes you have to sit back and realise that real-life events can be boring.
