• Vince McMahon Reportedly “Disgusted” By WWE Product, Changes Coming
According to Slice Wrestling, Vince McMahon wasn’t impressed with how the WWE product looked as of late and was reportedly “disgusted” by the overall feel of the product.
This led to Vince hiring Bruce Prichard, Jeff Jarrett, Shane Helms & Abyss as WWE creative team members / producers to help the WWE product. WWE officials are trying to make the product edgier and increase the TV viewership for both RAW & SmackDown as we head towards the biggest show of the year, WrestleMania 35.
As we have noted before, Vince isn’t happy about WWE’s TV viewership hitting record low numbers as of late and doesn’t want these type of numbers to continue, especially heading into new TV deals later this year.
