They can if WWE are smart about it. Like, make wins/losses matter. Where if you win, talk about the "winner's purse" or how they're closer to a title shot or something. Just kayfabe it. But they don't even try!!

Yeah, you & me both. The Khali match is baffling to me, I guess maybe it is just the freak show appeal? I have no idea. I am really outside of the target demo. too, which is honestly kind of sad as it feels like I have been forgotten as fan despite supporting the company for over twenty years. I suppose I want a more realistic, sports feel to the product, like old Crockett or NWA days, which I think C.M. Punk would fit in with perfectly. To achieve that though, wins/losses have to matter, continuity has to exist, there should be repercussions & consequences to things & the titles need to be prestigious so that people chasing them makes sense.
