1.No actual storylines/Storylines get finished too fast/They make no sense-Nexus,Anonymous GM etc

2.Lack of pushing main-event wrestlers-It's either too fast(Ryback) or no push at all(Barrett)

Batista in 2005 was the last guy to have that perfect push

3.Crowds are dead.Great crowds make average shows look great

4.Championship belts mean nothing.

5.PPV caliber matches are shown on free tv

Punk vs Sheamus(Champion vs Champion) was shown on free tv and it wasn't even on the main event

6.No Pushing mid-carders

Zack Ryder is over with the crowd and is very passionate abt this business.Yet he is buried every week.He could be perfect as the underdog midcard champion/contender

Just about everything. I can't stand who they push versus who they don't. I hate Cena more than any wrestler ever, and VM Punk I just don't like that guy as a person though I don't find anything wrong with his talent level.

Too much Titantron and fireworks has killed it's overall effect. Too many promo "rap offs" or whatever where both guys get a mic and proceed to bore the hell out of everyone with cliche's.

The "what" chants, which means I hate the average WWE fan these days for not letting the dumbest thing ever die its rightful death.

Big Slow as champ - whatever. The 1990s called and said you can keep him.

The music, they haven't used a decent song since the early 2000s, but I can't fault them 100% for that as the music industry as a whole has sucked balls for at least a decade. I have to relay upon the Euros to get some decent metal every now and then because the USA music scene is all about two things: 1) Hip Hop that has long since worn out its welcome as a genre and should have died out in the early 2000s (at least hair metal and grunge had the good graces to die out after they became tired), and 2) dub step, auto tune pop crap sandwiches.

Probably the biggest issue I have that made me stop watching completely other than clips from youtube linked in the WWE forum was the asinine way in which the Lesnar vs Cena match was handled. Couldn't take it after that.

End of personal rant... get off my lawn!

What DONT I hate?

You know theres a major, major problem when your product makes WCW circa 2000 seem entertaining in comparison.

There aren't any stars. No one on the entire roster is "must-see." The show feels like it is just a way to pass time instead of something to become emotionally invested in. RAW itself is just one big 3-hour WWE commercial.

If you so desire, you can read my blog here where I have talked about both the lack of stars & WWE not listening to the fans anymore.

I guess WWE are just hoping things get better when football is in the off-season & The Rock comes back? They're certainly not trying to make things better themselves.

Too many complacent WWE wrestlers who are clearly not good enough in the ring or in terms of charisma
Not enough star power
PG era
Vince Mcmahon turing into the George Lucas of pro wrestling.
awful writing
3hr raw
lack of hardcore matches, particularly on the non PPV's
roster is too thin
the home grown talent because they all have the samish style and they get rewarded for failure.
Cardboard cut out characters.

Them wasting so many potential money making matchups on free TV that I have far less interest most of the potential "ME" matchups now than I should. It cuts deeper than most of the other problems in my opinion since not only does it go against the very POINT of wrestling, building up to big fights, it seems to have a hand in many of the WWE's other problems:

-The undercard is so weak because WWE's overreliance on the uppercard to carry the televised wrestling aspect (at the dilution of their PPV drawing power) has made the midcard/lowercard guys redundant.

-Its hard to feel most of the uppercard talent is particularly special when the company is so casual in giving away pointess matches between high tier talent on free TV. Perception is EVERYTHING in this business.

-A big reson why the top heels struggle to be consistently strong is because most of them are often fed to top guys in pointless TV matches because the company "needs" an opponent for the main eventers to face and the top faces are "too good" to be wrestling guys like Darren Young or Titus O'Neil of free TV.

One of the reason I like Ryback so much compared to other main event faces is that they know how to hype him up and make him seem like a big deal but are careful to not throw him in pointless competitive matchups with other top guys just because they need something to fill the show with. I just wish they had this mindset with most of the top guys and let the midcard/lowercard carry most of the wrestling aspect for TV while relegating the top guys primarily to promos and buildup.

Pretty much all the points you've mentioned. Along with:

- The oversaturation of an already stale product
- Social networking overkill
- Lack of competition
- Reliance on the stars of yesteryear because they've realized how much they fucked up in booking their own talent

What I hate the most isn't actually WWE's fault.

I hate how they can put on a really crappy product (like now) and I'll still want to but Royal Rumble and Wrestlemainia.

A lot of problems.

- Boring champion that needs to drop the belt. It was fine if Punk was champ until May or something, but all year is just stretching it and pretty much killed my interests by the end of this summer.

- No meaning to anything. Outside of the main guy(s), everyone else has no storyline going for them. They just come out every week, wrestle a random match and if they have a "feud", their rival interferes or distracts them. Or is on commentary. THAT'S it.

- Nothing ever happens. Pretty self-explanatory.

- No star power. Seriously, outside of Orton and Cena, I couldn't care less about most of this roster. I like Sheamus but he's not enough to make 5 hours of boring TV passable.

- Plus more I can't bother mentioning.
