Wrestlers playing video games instead of shooting up and playing blackjack or whatever really wouldn’t make a difference if the product wasn’t garbage. To try and join up the two is just wild. Almost anyone that’s tried ANYTHING to get themselves over or had it happen organically has had it thrown back in their face. Rusev day, Zack Ryder, Fandango, Cesaro etc, all had the carpet taken out from under them.
This company now makes so, so much money that everyone outside of Roman Reigns is pretty much expendable. They’ll happily jist have contracted wrestlers sit on the sidelines if they piss the wrong people off. To try and spin the talent behaving like literally any other locker room/team in sport as a reason for WWE being in the state it’s in is just insane. They have the most talented roster in the history of professional wrestling. They do not know how to use it.
