The WWE should be more real

Seriously,I think this is one of the reason why the WWE don't get high ratings like in the past.They aren't that real like ... the UFC for exemple.
People don't take wrestling seriously today,in fact,now,they take it as a joke and the same goes for everything.The stage are too much clean,...
I am not talking about making the storylines real like in UFC but they need to put more heat and real bad guy.

I mean,we can just take a exemple with the Brock Lesnar's match.Maybe they weren't great and everything but it is was wrestling is about.Two guys who fight to the death.This is why Lesnar vs Cena and Lesnar vs Triple H are so great,they are believable and I'm sure that if more match were more like these one,the ratings would be better

Re: The WWE should be more real

That's what WCW did, and became very successful, WWE followed.

WCW went bust and now WWE just went back to cardboard superhero crap and are on cruise control because of no competition.

Re: The WWE should be more real

I'm not sure if this is where OP is getting at, but I think more believeable characters (charisma, looks, presentation combo) and more intense storylines would definitely help a lot. Most characters are too basic currently and won't be remembered in 10 years time, same for most feuds bar few.

No. Wrestling needs interesting storylines. Not ''I just dislike you'' types of feuds.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

" I am not talking about making the storylines real like in UFC but they need to put more heat and real bad guy."

I don't want real storyline like in UFC but I want something where there is a real hate between the guy.Just look Daniel Bryan vs CM Punk or Del Rio vs Sheamus,It's not believable that these guys hate eachother and want to kill eachother.
And yes,fight who are more real could help the product.Violence is necessary in wrestling because that makes people believes it's real.

You have to have talent both in ring and acting wise to pull it off. So I wouldn't hold my breath with this current roster. You'll have to watch some old NWA(Magnum vs Tully FTW) if you want to see some realistic heated matches guys today aren't skilled enough to pull it off.

Re: The WWE should be more real

does the UFC have real "storylines"??? really??

the UFC is a real competition, and the competitors are real athletes who want to move up the roster and challenge for a championship - this is what makes UFC a successful sport. their athletes are fighting for the ultimate prize in the game, the championship title and the "glory" which comes from being a champion

professional wrestling doesn't have this, and that's what makes the current era pale in comparison to the eras of old - up until the 80s, wrestling was all about the championship and challenging for the titles of the relevant divisions (with the odd storyline on the side to mix up the interest)

WWE today has no interest in making their champions seem like a genuine sport star, all they want is the TV and entertainment industry to accept WWE as an entertainment product, not a "sports" product which is what UFC is

wrestling today just needs compelling television, and enough of a hook to make people want to pay money each month to watch the various storylines progress/end etc

Re: The WWE should be more real

Ok, nobody will by the WWE as real. You do know that that are cooperating with each other during their match so that way their match would look good. Trying to make wrestling "real" would only lead to more injuries, terrible/botchfest matches, and wrestler's doing their best to make the other look terrible. As far as storylines being real, every storyline in wrestling is fake to begin with. Plus with kayfabe all but dead, the audience would just say that it's part of a storyline if a storyline blurs fantasy from reality.

Re: The WWE should be more real

Everybody knows pro wrestling is scripted, so there's no point to make it more real. Nobody is going to take it anymore seriously then they already do, and in my opinion, I think most wrestling haters are just content to hate on the wrestling and not give it the time of day.

Besides I don't know how more real you could make WWE. We're basically in the reality era now.
