At WrestleMania 39, WWE achieved something extraordinary for the sports entertainment industry: delivering exhilarating, high-quality performances with fans on the edge of their seats. In the main events, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn faced off against The Usos, while Cody Rhodes went head-to-head with Roman Reigns.
These matches showcased fundamentally good professional wrestling and unrivaled, story-driven narratives that captured the essence of Owens, Zayn, and Rhodes' struggles in their climb to the top of WWE. The main events succeeded in elevating the Undisputed Tag Team titles to a level comparable to the prestigious Undisputed Universal title.
This achievement marks WWE's first genuine effort to create the impression that they value the doubles titles, a claim they have been criticized for in the past. Just four years ago, the tag team division was in shambles, with the very champions defending their titles in the night one headliner.
However, WWE faces a chaotic situation behind the scenes—creative direction shifts between Vince McMahon and Paul 'Triple H' Levesque weekly. The company's recent acquisition by Endeavour is bound to change its overall look, feel, and operations.
While it won't transform into a UFC-lite, WWE will undoubtedly be a different beast than the sports entertainment juggernaut it once was.
Chasing WrestleMania 39's Success
In light of these changes, replicating the spectacular Premium Live Event main events like those seen at WrestleMania 39 will be a Herculean challenge.
Nonetheless, WWE should not shy away from striving for greatness and continuing to push boundaries in the industry. To maintain its momentum, WWE must deliver high-quality matches and engaging narratives that resonate with fans.
Developing fresh talents and empowering them to showcase their skills and charisma will be critical to maintaining a strong and competitive roster. In addition, the company should continue to embrace change and adapt to the evolving landscape of the sports entertainment world.
This might involve exploring new formats, platforms, or partnerships that can further enhance their content and fan experience. As WWE moves forward, it must stay true to the elements that have made it a global phenomenon while adapting to the changing tides.
By doing so, they can continue to provide fans with thrilling and unforgettable moments that have become synonymous with the WWE brand.
