Re: Who else thinks WWE are fucked?
Business wise, they aren't fucked.
Quality wise...that's another story. Its quite evident many fans have drank the Vince McMahon kool-aid. "Forget wrestling, we have another John Cena t-shirt and more social media references!" Its kinda funny, for an 'entertainment' company that bases itself on wrestling, they make the majority of their money on things that have nothing to do with wrestling. Licensing, merchandise, media, etc. Aside from WM, PPV buy rates are down for the most part, live gate attendance is down, and there's the fact that the fewest amount of people in 15 years are watching (in other words, when it has to do with wrestling, they aren't doing well). They've done a good job of scrubbing away any ties to their shamed wrestling past, much to my, and many other fans', chagrin.
