WWE has seen a loss in ratings, and if the same is any indication, it means that the boss needs to take effective measures to put things into perspective. The chairman of the board Vince McMahon addressed the same in the company's fourth quarter 2018 earnings call.

While it sounded like a beat around the bush tactic, or him playing a blame game, we know that the Chairman has seen more bad days than this, but he needs to pull up his socks and bring things in order. In an attempt to do so, he needs to get rid of his believed agenda and set new benchmarks just like he did in the attitude era.

The Boss is back in charge, and we did see some changes in WWE programming, but if you are spearheading the team, and it doesn't perform well, you can't put the blame on your subordinates.

In accordance with the Vince McMahon blame game style, I take note of 3 reasons why this loss in ratings is all The Greater Power's fault:

#1 Part Timers ruling the company

No more defending champion
No more defending champion

Vince McMahon likes muscular guys, and it's no hidden fact that this is the reason why Roman Reigns became the face of the company, to begin with. Another such muscular person that is currently reigning, (not) defending Universal Champion of the WWE, Brock Lesnar has brought more shame to the overall WWE product and its coveted title.

The chairman was so involved in giving part-timers good space at the grandest stage of them all, that he even booked a match between Brock Lesnar and Goldberg at Wrestlemania.

You can't have part-timers rule the competition, especially when they aren't showing up time in and again on TV, because it infuriated fans that don't want to see a part-timer on TV.
