I'm serious. A 30-day layoff from the end of WrestleMania gives the roster a chance to recharge their batteries, cuts down on injuries, and allows the writing team to hit the reset button on go-nowhere stories.

I mean, they obviously couldn't do it for a few years with all the advance bookings, but in three or four years, I really think implementing an offseason might be the best thing to happen to The 'E in decades.

Thoughts? Real ones.
Read that jawn....

    I don't watch much anymore but this does sound like a smart idea.

    Off-seasons have been discussed before and its a nonstarter.

    One of the reasons they can make so much money from USA/NBC is because of the consistent content they provide weekly.

    Live first run programming is worth a pretty penny, especially if it has a consistent audience. WWE has that. It wouldn't be prudent to stop running programs for 4 weeks.

    That eats into all forms of revenue. No house shows, no PPVs, definitely will affect merchandise sales, ad revenue from networks...just a bad business move.

    For the performers and creative team it could be good. It would give performers a break and give writers a chance to script shows in advance but I doubt it works out.

    They can do something like have one crew have a post-Mania sabbatical and the other can have a post Summerslam sabbatical.

    They need to do something. If, for nothing else, then the health of their talent:

    Superstars perform 3-4 times a week, which can be 150-200 shows a year.

    In contrast (not counting preseason or training camp):
    MLB - 162 games + up to 20 playoff games (Wild Card + 5 divisional games + 7 LCS + 7 WS)
    NHL/NBA - 82 games + up to 28 playoff games (7 for each round)
    NFL - 16 games + up to 4 playoff games (WC, D, FC, SB)

    And unlike Baseball, these fuckers move around all night sometimes.

    The 'E needs to figure this out.
