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.
Incorrect statements, wtf. Yes, i meant that WWE as a company earns more, but the wrestling product itself has been more unpopular than it were for example 12 years ago?
Is that incorrect you idiot?
Yes, the company earns more than before. But as i said it's because of merchandising and multimedia interest in the wrestling product itself has been going down.
It hasnt gone beyond the real of proffesional wrestling, it has just found other ways to earn money now that professional wrestling is unpopular.
The wrestling product itself is important. Imagine if they could make new boom era + to earn money they do today.
The money they would earn would be alot more than they would today.
But the wrestling product itself is unpopular because of societys opinion on pro wrestling, + poor product and + they havent found guys that can draw llke Hogan and Rock.
As long as there is money to make and imporvement to make the wrestling product is important even though they ear n money with other stuff these days. Fact is they could earn alot more with the wrestling product if they would make improvements on it that would make more interest on it.
