Make no mistake about it, WWE is in the worst place it has been since the mid-90s. Luckily for the company there is no genuine competition for the audience to jump over to, otherwise WWE could be in serious danger.
But alas, WWE is the sole wrestling powerhouse in the world and the only option for disgruntled fans of the product is to turn off their televisions and do something else with their time - which they are doing.
WWE did nothing to help stem the flow, putting on a personalized 'how to' guide on how to effectively get your TV ratings to drop after the horrible episode of RAW disguised as a pay-per-view that was Survivor Series.
To cap off the predictable, dull and underwhelming event, WWE's response to John Cena taking a break and Seth Rollins suffering a long-term knee injury was having Sheamus capture the WWE Championship after cashing in his Money in the Bank contract, effectively making the face of the company a midcarder who has hardly been involved on TV in recent months.
RAW's ratings will continue to go down until at least the end of the year. However, the ship can be salvaged before it goes completely under.
Luckily for WWE, the ratings drop comes at a time when both Royal Rumble and WrestleMania are on the horizon, allowing for two excellent opportunities to bring the fans back to the product.
These are the top 15 ways WWE can sort out the utter car crash its product has become before WrestleMania 32.
15 Allow Dolph Ziggler Some Success
14 Heated Undercard Rivalries
13 Roman Reigns Feud With Sheamus/The Authority
12 Commit To Making Sheamus 'The Man'
11 Have Bray Wyatt Win Something
10 Push The 'Right' Divas
9 More Unpredictability
8 Promote Asuka
7 Bring Back Batista
6 Go All Out At Royal Rumble
5 Build Up To Triple H vs The Rock At WrestleMania
4 The Undertaker vs Kane At WrestleMania
3 Bring Finn Balor To The Main Roster To Fight KO
2 Have Brock Lesnar Win The Royal Rumble
1 Sign Kurt Angle Immediately
Kurt Angle's TNA contract is up in January and Angle has previously stated he is interested in taking a break from professional wrestling. However, during a Q&A in late November, Angle said he would love to work with Daniel Bryan if he could manage to get healthy. Regardless of whether Bryan is able to make a return or not, Angle needs to be signed up and placed in the main event scene immediately. The fans who are switching off from the product are bored with what has been presented and an instant way to get at least a portion of those back in front of the TV is by bringing back one of professional wrestling's biggest names. If not feuding with Sheamus, Kurt Angle vs John Cena at WrestleMania would be terrific as well.
