#4 Indie Talent

Snapping up names like AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura underscores a paradigm change in the WWE’s thinking

Much like how WWE bought out WCW to end the Monday Night Wars, the WWE has wisely chosen to cut the legs from underneath its main competition today – the independent circuits – by poaching the best talent from various promotions.

Don’t get me wrong.

No single promotion today, unlike WCW back then, poses the same kind of threat, or even caters to the same demographic as WWE does. However, today more than ever, pro-wrestling fans worldwide are spoilt for choice when it comes to the availability of myriad kinds of programming to dip their toes into.

This diversity is something that the WWE has chosen to deal with by acquiring the top talent from other promotions like NJPW, ROH or TNA; a ploy – propped up by Vince McMahon’s formidable chequebook –  that seems to be working soundly in their favour till now.
