Re: Wrestling isnt even WWE no.1 priority.
This is nothng new. The show will never be centered around the act of wrestling, because that is simply not the aspect of the business that has mass appeal. Just look at who the most popular wrestlers ever are. Hogan, Rock, austin w/ 2 bad knees, Sting, goldberg, warrior, whoever. Flair was a great wrestler, but that wasn't why people tuned in for him, it was because the ric flair character was awesome. This has pretty much always been the focus, even prior to the rise of wwe really. The rise of workrate-based indys in the last 10 years has skewed people's opinion on wrestling, but the companies with TV were never wrestling-based like that. hell aside from a horrendously shitty raw this week, wrestling purists should be pretty happy with the product right now, with guys like punk and bryan holding top spots. The big problem is that the storylines and characters just suck fat fucking cock.
