You can easily see popularity of pro wrestling has gone down by looking at todays society. You dont need a master grade in science to see that.
Ratings may not matter to some guys, but buyrates does. And buyrates shows that interest of wrestling in recent years has gone down.
Fact is pro wrestling is unpopular in today's society either you guys like it or not.
You're probably very young, because clearly you have no idea what you're talking about.
The WWE is more popular worldwide today then it was 10 years ago. They have a publicly shared IPO and their stock is decent. They've expanded beyond the realm of "professional wrestling" and into a successful conglomerate beyond being the monopoly of Sports Entertainment.
You don't understand the semantics and logistics, beyond just ratings, earning sheets, annual merchandise sales vs. demo's in various countries, marketing in demo's that 10 years ago weren't even plausible, endeavors outside the ring for the wrestlers, partnerships with YouTube and other web based networking outlets, etc. The company, per it's annual statements, is netting more revenue now then in previous decades.
Do a little research before you make incorrect statements.
