I dont disagree with him. I’ve always thought we should get mostly squash matches, with maybe the main event as something decent. I probably fast forward 95% of matches in WWE and only watch the promos/angles.
The problem with Vince is his mindset in that regard doesn’t match his match making. If you don’t want to put much into TV matches then top talent should face other top talent. It should be upper and mid card talent against Jobbers. If you are having top talent face each other then you need to put something into the match otherwise you just kill the excitement around the matchup. If Hogan and Warrior had faced off 10 times on TV in nothing matches prior to their wrestlemania match then who would be excited for that match.
Also given that TV is their money maker these days I’m not sure how well the model of show squashes on TV and matches on PPV really would work. Especially with them putting most promos on YouTube. If the TV matches are skippable why tune in. I think they would need a much better midcard than they have (build wise not talent wise) to go to a show where you have lots of squash matches or midcard matches.
I don’t think it’s an either/or proposition, though. You still need t.v. matches that are good. But jobber matches are also needed. This idea of top star A vs. Top star C with 7 screw job finishes to hype up a pay per view is the worst possible strategy
