You need the right people. There are a lot of people involved in making a WWE show work and several of them are not often seen on camera. In addition to the wrestlers you see in front of you, there are also the people who help put the matches together. WWE has a large group of producers who work with the wrestlers to make the matches as good as they are, but one of them has not been around as much lately.
According to Sean Ross Sapp during a Fightful Select podcast, TJ Wilson, better known as Tyson Kidd, has not been backstage at recent WWE events. As a result, several women were not interested in appearing in the women’s Royal Rumble match as Wilson would not be producing it. Wilson is still with WWE, though there are conflicting reports on why he has not been working. One underlying reason seems to be frustration among Wilson and the women he works with over how the women are presented. Fit Finlay was brought in to help with the match instead.
Opinion: I’m not sure what is going on with Wilson, but it continues the theme of someone having problems with how WWE is being run backstage. While it’s true that WWE is making a fortune, there might be some issues with so many people being unhappy. At some point that is going to become a problem and last weekend’s Royal Rumble did not exactly come off as the best backstage situation.
What does this mean for WWE? What did you think of the women’s Royal Rumble without Wilson? Let us know in the comments below.
