5 reasons why NJPW has an upper hand against WWE
- NJPW is garnering more attention than WWE has in the last five years
The Legacy, D- Generation X, The Nexus, Straight Edge Society, Evolution are all examples of some of the best factions that WWE had during its course of the run. It's not about Attitude Era and blaming that Attitude Era has well-surpassed anything that WWE can ever achieve today is but a baseless excuse.
The Shield was a very good attempt at a faction which fought for justice and has done well to each of its members. Preferably more to Roman Reigns but it's okay. The Shield never leaves a chance to come to help its teammates and that is what is best about them. But that was 5 years ago, though it still makes sense, WWE has struggled to come up with another faction as good as this. The Wyatt Family disappeared into something very lousy, and while it did manage to stir some emotions, it never lived up to its expectations. And in later years, only got boring.
Ever heard of Bullet Club, Chaos, The Roads Warrior, Suzuki Gun - That's what NJPW does best. They make that extra effort to think different and do differently. Probably every wrestler in NJPW belongs to some faction, and this is not about crafting a mimic and being bonded by blood and family, but just like-minded people coming together. It works for them, and in so many ways has garnered more following than WWE. Remember AJ Styles and Finn Balor doing the "Too Sweet."
