This. Employing past prime goons for staged fights isn't the answer. Nasty, punishing players that can add value in this area outside their position.

Losing fights and getting manhandled hurts the morale or at least it should.
Maybe complacency is the bigger problem.

We need an upgrade in skill but we sorely need an upgrade in physicality
