Cokeboy forgets that they're not Hollywood actors. :francis:

and the roster is as swagless and corny as they come, so maybe the no ad-libs is a good idea :jbhmm: The marks are now in the ring, they spend their free time playing video games and watching comic book movies, would one really want to see their real personalities?

This is what we have to look forward to from here on out. And it's only gonna get more rigid.

Cant take any chances on adlibs due to sponsorships, tv partners etc

It's "live & unpredictable" but basically dead & predictable. Other than the occasional Titus eating dirt on the ramp, nothing else is a surprise.
I bet moments like that are what they touted to Fox in order to show how "anything can happen" in the WWE

I agree. Nothing feels live and unpredictable on WWE TV anymore tbh. The promos are scripted with no space for ad libs, the TV matches go to commercial in the middle yet a match never ends during commercials, even the backstage selfie promos have WordArt going along with them so you can tell it's pre-taped too.

At this point the only surprises are the finishes to non-Roman matches at PPVs.

Vince writing scripted promos for all the wrestlers is worse than when Mr. Burns was writing the scripts for The Simpsons

Having a "no adlibs" rule in pro wrestling is so antithetical to the spirit of pro-wrestling.
None of the biggest stars in the history of the business would have been created if they had to rigidly follow scripts to the letter.
That’s the point. They want the brand to be the draw and for nobody to feel like a larger than life star or a must see attraction. Hurts their leverage at the negotiating table.
