The Divide Between Brock and Bryan

grapplekingdom:

Blue Bar Cage offers up an in-depth look at the “continental divide” between Brock Lesnar and Daniel Bryan by tracing their careers, looking at WWE’s treatment of both men in the past and the present, and noting how WWE’s lack of star-building in the past few years (including Bryan’s eighteen second loss at WrestleMania 28) and a reliance on “nostalgia” acts (Brock, The Rock) widens the “divide” between stars such as Lesnar and Bryan:

WWE is a desperately deaf and blind company. You lose your hearing and sight as you get older, and you become less likely to take a chance on a new venture. Much like your parents watching TV Land at night for Everybody Loves Raymond instead of giving Game of Thrones a go, the more you age, the more you cling to youth, especially if that youth made a bald-headed, foul-mouthed fight promoter named Dana White into a more prolific millionaire than McMahon.

And the more WWE clings to Lesnar and Rock, and other trinkets of better times, the wider the continental divide becomes. CM Punk was able to make that Evel Knievel leap, miraculously, but the borders keep widening.

While McMahon rubs elbows with Rock and Brock and the network and his social media staffers on one continent, CM Punk stands off to the side, sticking his arm out futilely over the raging waters, praying that Bryan or Ryder or somebody can make that leap to him; he’d pull them ashore if they could just get within his grasp.
