Was REALLY hoping Owens was with the New Day for at least a month so as to make the turn really count.  Instead?  The angle was just a waste of time.

I kind of agree if they pushed it for like two months, it will also have a good reason for Big E to be mad at the other members in New Day for replacing him which could push a feud with Kofi.

Why would we ever expect WWE to do something that made sense?  I didn't even think of the Big E angle, probably because in my mind I would doubt that WWE would want to break up the New Day due to how much merch they sell.  It's insane how much New Day merch is out there.

So, back in the day, the drafts happened on one night, and they were pretty much permanent until the next draft, and there was some build-up and some consequences. I quite enjoyed the trade angle between Bischoff and Stephanie in 2002 as well.

Today, shit just happens for no reason. The B-Team were moved to SD yesterday. No angle, or even an announcement, just their profile changing on the website. No wonder the fans are giving up, they lasted a lot longer than Vince's ability to create compelling wrestling.

They should treat it like the territories used to.  No draft, just let them circulate.  Change it up 2 times a year, after WM and after SummerSlam, but don't announce it.  Keep them off TV for a couple weeks when they're winding down on 1 brand, build them up as coming in on the other.  You don't have to do it with the whole roster, but you have 3 brands that you could rotate a 1/3 of each roster through if done properly.
Guys that get stuck in the mid card can go to NXT for 6 months and redevelop themselves.
You can get different PPV matchups every few months to keep things from getting stale.

This year seemed to be less planned out than any other year by far.  It's like when they went live on the Monday night of the draft, they simply weren't ready and didn't know who was moving yet.  You have Vince, who is old and has clearly lost a few steps in the mental capacity department, insisting on micromanaging every little thing while also being spread too thin with business decisions and the XFL and other shit.  He just can't do it anymore.  It must be an absolute nightmare to get anything done there.  I've been driven to fits at work over the years with supervisors who weren't 25% as bad as this.

I honestly think that WWE is going to collapse under its own weight in the next few years.
