Vince McMahon keen on building new WWE stars following the departure of several big stars post Wrestlemania for various reasons.
It was only a few months ago the WWE had an embarrassing riches of talent. From Goldberg and Brock Lesnar to Edge and Roman Reigns, the main event scene was stacked to the brim. Cut to day where all four are absent from the company.
More huge stars such as Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair and Daniel Bryan have since gradually taken their leave of absence. This has left the company rather barren at the top of the card. To make matters worse for the WWE, it is currently unknown when they’ll make a return.
This has left Vince McMahon, out of desperation morethan anything else, keen on building new WWE stars to carry the promotion in the coming months according to Dave Meltzer on the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Too young to be pushed?
The WWE has had several opportunities in the past to pull the trigger on certain wrestlers. They could have taken them to the next lever. However, Meltzer suggests that Vince hasn’t done so because he believes that they’re too young.
Which is surprising, considering both Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar became world champions in the WWE at the age of 24 and 25 respectively.
The Rock was a 7-time World Champion and a global phenomenon before he reached 30. While the Undertaker was only 26 when he beat none other than Hulk Hogan to win his first WWE (then WWF) Championship.
The fact that the WWE would rather have Big Show on television than to use the opportunity to build a younger star is proof of their lack of faith in the current talent pool they possess. Regardless, a lot will be forgiven and forgotten if the WWE actually come good and invest on their upcoming stars.
