Thinking, pondering, and philosophizing about the state of professional wrestling of today, the thing that keeps coming back to me is the 1960’s and the 1970’s, where back then, wrestling was divided up into territories. Why do the territories keep popping into my mind when I think about the current state of wrestling? I’ll go into it here in this article.
The State of Pro Wrestling
Well, I don’t think the current state of pro wrestling is doing too good. The World Wrestling Entertainment hasn’t had any real competition since 2001 when World Championship Wrestling was bought out by than WWF, but even during its last six months or so, WCW wasn’t doing too hot for itself, anyway. But eight years later, the WWE doesn’t have the adequate competition that it deserves, nothing against Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling. TNA isn’t in a spot today to challenge McMahon and the WWE for the number one spot.
Bring Back the Territories and One World Champion among Them All!
Pushing the WWE back to the northeast, keeping TNA down where the Crockett’s and World Class Championship Wrestling ran, have a company run where American Wrestling Association ran out of Minneapolis and have a fourth promotion running the west coast. And among them all, have one World Champion among them all, doing what the NWA did back in the day, having the World Champ there for maybe a couple of pay-per-views, and go on to the next territory.
“Why have four wrestling promotions Darsie? And why have one World Champion with them all?” One word fits best for that answer: competition. All four should get equal airing time in the States and World-Wide, not be under the same company, indeed be owned by four different parties, but share a World Champ. Why? For they won’t screw with each other and try to put each other out of business. Companies need other companies that do the same thing for competition sake. If there wasn’t a WCW or a WWE, the other company would absolutely suck. Look at the state of the WWE now.
But hey, that’s me thought. This is what I would love, in Darsie’s world of professional wrestling. But to conclude, McMahon, Bischoff, Hogan, Jarrett, Carter, and whoever else who could make something like this happen, please do, we fans deserve something like this. I am Eric Darsie from Minnesota, pondering what wrestling would be like if this come true, goodbye!
