People make the mistake of viewing the WWE as if it's a sport like basketball or football, when in fact it's not even close. The WWE is more comparable to sitcoms and soaps. Their success depends entirely on their ability to come up with good characters and interesting storylines, something the WWE are not exactly excelling at these days. They are safe for a while, but the viewership will most likely keep declining for the next few years and if something big happened like Vince McMahon dying, who knows where the company will end up.
I have to disagree.For a product like raw and smackdown its much easier to add new and fresh talent unlike sitcoms or soaps.Also keep in mind the characters WWE has a much more than most sitcoms , which gives the advantage of more storylines , also its much easier for WWE wrestlers to change their gimmicks and characters unlike in a sitcom.The viewer might not like the new character developement in a sitcom and while its a problem in a sitcoms WWE does that regulary by introducing heel turns / face turns.
