In 2017, WWE has booked various huge storylines. Like, return of Kurt Angle, and John Cena vs. Roman Reigns. The goal behind them is to create interest among the crowd and to boost the viewership. But, that did not work out much as the company thought. WWE Rumor Roundup reported that viewership/T.V. ratings of both the shows Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live have been decreased very much.
WWE Network also lost approx. 186,000 no. of subscribers between the second and third quarter of current year. And this is the big problem in the way to the success of WWE. WWE Rumor Roundup reported that, if WWE wants to increase its viewership and want to achieve its goals for WrestleMania 34, then WWE should have to stop making storylines like Jinder Mahal and WWE Championship reigns and like that.

5 Huge Matches, WWE must book in 2018 to increase its viewership
Braun Strowman’s First Ever World Title Win
Braun Strowman was at the point that he can be our new WWE Universal Champion. But because WWE wants Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns for the WrestleMania 34, thus it has not happened yet for the Braun Strowman.
According to WWE Rumor Roundup, that must be changed in 2018, if they want their top attraction to go the same way. If they will not do it in 2018, then it will be too late for the Braun Stworman. Because currently, Braun Strowman is among the top attractions in WWE. A couple of years back, Bray Wyatt also was one of the top attraction in WWE. But WWE has not used him right. And the result is he is not covered from that yet.
So if WWE will not giving Braun Strowman what people think, then it will be not good for the future. WWE has already done a couple of mistakes like absent of Strowman from WrestleMania 33 and his loss at WWE No Mercy 2017 pay-per-view. One more mistake is not expected. According to WWE Rumor Roundup, one more mistake will result in the dis-interest of fans.
AJ Styles Vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
Aj Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura, both were one of the major attraction of New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s Wrestle Kingdom 10 in 2016. If you don’t know, NJPW hast equivalent to WrestleMania. So if Aj Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura come again in a match then it will help in attracting a lot of viewership. Also, this is one of WWE Dream Matches.
WWE has started to set the stage for this match. Aj Styles is currently holding the WWE Title. And as per WWE Rumor Roundup, he is not going to drop the title any soon. Also, WWE is planning for Aj Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura at WrestleMania 34.
It is a very necessary step to be taken. As SmackDown Live is suffering more decrease in the viewership. No Doubt, that Aj Styles is one of the top attraction at SmackDown Live. He comes on 3rd number in the company after John Cena and Roman Reigns. Shinsuke Nakamura is also a good draw, but he did not get the push that he deserves. So it will be the right place if this dream match happens at the grandest stage.
The Cruiserweight Division Should Integrate With The Main Roster
The WWE 205 Live show is not getting much viewership. WWE Rumor Roundup reported that it is even not coming among the top 10 shows of the week. Due to this, WWE has recently sent a survey to WWE fans for their views regarding WWE 205 Live Show.
There are a lot of skilled and best performers at 205 Live show. So if WWE has decided to shut down the show, Then they can integrate the show with the main roster. They can bring the superstars like Cedric, Rick, Ali, and others. These superstars can work as the best middle card performers for both the brands. So as per WWE Rumor Roundup, if WWE will merge the 205 Live Show with Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live, then it will be good for both 205 Live Show and main roster.
The Shield Break Up
If you don’t know, All the members of The Shield have come at the top merchandise seller in WWE. In 2014, they were in the sixth place. And In 2015, they were at fifth place. Also, they were at the second place in 2016 and still continues to become the top merchandise seller in WWE.
Come to the point, I want to say that, WWE has lack of Star-power. Thus they can’t go with The Shield for a long time. They have to break up the Shield once again if they want to make some huge heel in WWE. Earlier there were speculations that Roman Reigns will end up to do so. But WWE Rumor Roundup also reported that it could be Dean Ambrose who will come up as the end of the Shield.
But so ever, WWE should have to break up the Shield in 2018, when no one is thinking about this. This will surely turn some heel up as per WWE Rumor Roundup.
Daniel Bryan’s Return To The Ring
Daniel Bryan has many times give his intention to in-ring return. But medical staff did not clear him. As we know his contract with WWE will finish in September 2018. According to WWE Rumor Roundup, Bryan wants a match before his contract expires. He was the second top guy in his time. But his health did not allow him and forced him to take retirement from the wrestling career.
But WWE Rumor Roundup reported that soon he may be cleared from all the medical tests. And will come in the ring to fight. But there are only 20% chances that he will wrestle in WWE. He can wrestle with some other company like “Ring of Honors”. But if in WWE, then his opponent may be Shane McMahon, Aj Styles, or Miz.
The Bottom Line is if WWE wants to get some success in the year 2018, then it have to books the match like above. So that it can attract the people. At the end i want to say you that if you like these matches then don’t forget to share this article with others.
