WWE Needs To Start Using Their Legends Properly

• WWE Needs To Start Using Their Legends Properly

I think it’s about time someone brought this up – WWE needs to start using their legends properly!

In the main event segment of tonight’s Survivor Series 2020 pay-per-view, The Undertaker had his Final Farewell.

Before The Undertaker came out, a long list of legends came to the ring for the Farewell. What did they do during that segment? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

That’s right. WWF Old School legends made their entrances (which was great for nostalgic reasons) and then disappeared as soon as Vince McMahon appeared in the ring after Taker’s tribute video ended.

Below is the list of legends that appeared:

– Shane McMahon

– The Big Show

– JBL

– Jeff Hardy

– Mick Foley

– The Godwins

– Savio Vega

– Rikishi

– The Godfather

– Kevin Nash

– Booker T

– Shawn Michaels

– Ric Flair

– Triple H

– Kane

A lot of fans were disappointed with all these legends just disappearing, as fans had very high hopes from this segment, which should’ve been like Ric Flair’s farewell from 2008.

As if The Undertaker retiring in the absence of real fans in attendance wasn’t bad enough, WWE dropped the ball with the actual segment as well.

Some would say it was short & sweet, and to be honest it had some great moments, like Vince McMahon choking up, Undertaker’s epic final entrance as The Deadman and Taker paying tribute to Paul Bearer, but those Legends should’ve had an interaction with The Deadman.

WWE did something similar back in 2019 during the RAW Reunion episode, where they advertised a ton of legends, and they got utilized horribly. Some fans would say the same thing for the RAW 25 episode back in 2018 (apart from Stone Cold Steve Austin & Undertaker’s segments, as over 40 legends were brought back for that show).

Not only is this bad from the fans’ standpoint, but this will soon begin to hurt WWE’s business too.

Right now, WWE brings back Legends to get an increase in viewership for their weekly shows every now & then, but that plan could stop working once fans begin to realize WWE isn’t going to do much with them.
