WWE Exec Comments on Chris Jericho, Building New Stars

– WWE Chief Operating Officer Donna Goldsmith read a prepared statement at today’s investor conference call where it was noted that the transition in talent had an affect on the company’s latest financial results.

Explaining the company’s soft business, Goldsmith noted Shawn Michaels and Batista retiring following WrestleMania, The Undertaker and CM Punk missing time with injuries, and that Chris Jericho was “temporarily out of the ring.”

Goldsmith said the company is focused on developing new stars, specifically naming Wade Barrett, Alberto Del Rio and The Nexus.

In regards to WWE Studios projects, she noted their productions set for 2011 will have smaller budgets compared to before.

    Actually Wade is a better wrestler than most of their new guys. But I wouldn’t expect someone who can’t speak English to understand that.

    All their young guys with any talent get buried though. They make them into stupid heels like Legacy, and have them go no where, and they job to Cena. Of course their young guys don’t sell merchandise. Who wants to buy t-shirts for guys who lose to Cena and Mysterio every single week?

    Wade Barrett actually can’t wrestle better than most of their young guys. at least not the superstars that haven’t had a proper push either. he is a typical power wrestler. he is someone who must be put in the ring with the right person… which isn’t necessarily a bad thing but it is when WWE plans to have him feud with cena and orton for maybe.. the next 5 years. because WWE for some reason thinks its a good idea to push the same handful of guys in the main event year after year after year. guys who are more entertaining in the ring than Barrett are Christian, Evan Bourne, John Morrison, Kofi Kingston, Kaval, Alberto Del Rio, even Justin Gabriel, Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger (even though he is overrated i admit) but still had a fluke title reign thans to WWE

    and those are just the superstars that haven’t had a proper main event push really…

    as far as Drew Mcintyre.. the guy speaks very low on the mic, shows no expression, says things that are nothing to get excited about, and is as entertaining in the ring as the Big Show.. NOT EVEN
