    No one is over in WWE *on purpose*. If the product is based on the attraction of a star, then the company is vulnerable to the loss of that star. If everyone is the same, the attraction is 'Come see WWE!', which they can own and control. Even though it sucks.

    That WWE performs so badly is a miracle by any stretch of the imagination. Their social media network is the wet dream of any corporation big and small, yet they seem not to benefit from that: they keep on ignoring the fan's feedback and input year in year out to a point where they embody everything that a wrestling company shouldn't be.

    I just want to be clear. NJPW is on cable. Its available to many homes... but no one watches. If NJPW is so great, why is no one watching... could it be you over value what you're seeing or you live in your own reality???

    "Kazuchika Okada, the reigning IWGP champion sits atop A-block with 10 points accumulated across 5 undefeated matches. That's pretty unusual"
    And yet every single champion in the past 2 years did the exact same thing. Okada was undefeated for 6 matches straight in 2017 and Omega was undefeated for 6 match straight in 2018. And as of now Okada also lost his undefeated streak after going undefeated for 6 matches. Wow, so fucking unpredictable right? You need to be really stupid to not see this predictable pattern.

    The G1 tournament format lends itself to creating so much drama based on standings alone, then add the undercard tag matches to work up some heat, and let the wrestlers tell their own stories in the ring, and you get an actual sports-focused product that is both stripped-down and impressively complex.

    1) That thumbnail for this video rocked my world lol well done. 2) 0:53 Long term planning is needed for WWE to learn from this and implement anything similar. WWE can't seem to plan for an hour from now without Vince scrapping the plans and rewriting them (twice) between now and then. 3) You nailed it on the explanation of the two companies and the comparison, couldn't have said it better myself!

    Why this wrestling know it all compare NJPW to WWE? WWE is an American promotion while NJPW is purely a Japanese promotion, they are at far ends of this world apart. Pro Wrestling is treated as a real sports in Japan theres no other storyline than fighting each other to win its also the reason why NJPW has never conquered America or the world like WWE, what Wrestling as everyone knows it today is started by Vince and WWE when it left the territory days, Kayfabe exists it is driven by storyline and characters, fans are as invested in promos as much as with the matches, wrestlers shine when they are unique characters. America and the world knows wrestling is theatre and predetermined they non fans even calls it fake WWE make stories behind characters and matches to keep people tuning in otherwise theres UFC

    They could they have it set up with raw and smackdown, raw could be the a block and smackdown could be the b block and it would span through out the month with monday and Tuesday being the raw nights while Thursdays and fridays smackdown would have their show for their "g1"

    I think that the disadvantage WWE faces is the need try to advance storylines every week to reach PPVs every month. That and Vince rewriting shows 90 minutes before airtime.
