Furthermore, yet another feature regarding the selfie promos which was discussed on the podcast is that as opposed to the traditional promo footage put forth by WWE, the selfie promos are more relatable to the audience in today’s world—what with the considerable usage of social media applications such as YouTube, making selfie promos more relatable for the WWE Universe.

Truth be told—the WWE is better off sticking to the traditional format of promos.
While the selfie promos are good in their own right, nothing beats a typical old-school WWE promo.
