What if there were no wrestling matches

Imagine if WWE just stopped doing matches altogether

Filled up their shows with nothing but promos and skits adverts celebrity cameos and music videos

Its pretty clear that anything that isnt wrestling draws more than wrestling, sad i know

So even if they kept the ring up in these sports arenas will they be able to exist if they never did another wrestling match ever, EEEEEEEEEEEEEEVVVVVERRRRRR....again, mate?

Re: What if there were no wrestling matches

Well, they wouldn't. They are a wrestling company after all.

Re: What if there were no wrestling matches

It couldn't work, the point of feuds and promos is to build to the matches, and yes, they are more important than the match itself, but you still need the match. Just like how they couldn't survive if they took away promos because nobody gives a damn about two people mindlessly fighting over nothing. It's a carefully constructed balancing act. The matches don't have to be good, as long as you've got people who can entertain the crowd with the build, but they still need to exist, the conflict still needs to be resolved.

Um....no

Everything the WWE does on their shows other than matches are builds to matches so you still need the wrestling matches.

Re: What if there were no wrestling matches

I wouldn't watch the company. Everything done is ultimately about the WRESTLING.



Rusev | Mark Henry | Dean Ambrose | Stardust | Jack Swagger
Timothy Thatcher | Chris Hero | Scott Dawson | Dash Wilder | Roderick Strong
Summer Rae | Emma | Carmella | Becky Lynch | Dana Brooke

Panthers - Red Sox - Nuggets - Mets

Re: What if there were no wrestling matches

Lol what would they call the company then? WPE, World Promos Entertainment? You still have to have matches because those are what promos are about most of the time.

Re: What if there were no wrestling matches

Then wouldn't it be Impact Wrestling? *burn*

No but seriously this would never happen and it's a pretty stupid concept.

What I Want This Year
Cody Rhodes to win a World Title
Dolph Ziggler to win a World Title
A real feud over the WWE Tag Titles
Most importantly, good stories and great wrestling.

What's even the point of WWE existing without the wrestling part.
