Obviously, it's all on Vince at the end of the day. There's definitely been an increase in bad, dated tropes since Bruce's return though, with loads of cartoon gimmicks and comedy from 90s kids tv. Shorty G, King Corbin, dog food, The Viking Prophets and all that. His return last February also coincided with the hot women's division falling off a cliff. Then there's the bickering tag partners, the endless rematches, the feuds that go on forever. The chronic inability to build a hot heel. It's got lazier than ever since his return.
