Re: Who else thinks WWE are fucked?

Just because product isn't like it used to be, people suddenly thinks it means WWE will end...

WWE is more than just a tv show. Things other than TV ratings are important too. You don't think a sports team is like "We got 1M people watching today, though last week it was 1.2M...we're in trouble now!". They don't care as much about that, they care about making money and winning.

WWE cares about making money and that's exactly what they're doing. This is basically the most profitable era in WWE history.

Of course they aren't. Anyone with the slightest clue about business can see that they are making money. Not as much as before but that's a completely different thing than saying that they are about to crash, or even lose a TV deal.

TNA has a rating of 0.84 this week (and can barely get 1.0 throughout) and people complaining about WWE? Sure it sucks compared to previous years, but its not like its down the drain like TNA.

It's not the 1990's, TV ratings have significantly less importance today in the wrestling industry. That 0.84 was still the highest rated show on their network, thus expectations are being well and truly met.

wwe aren't in danger at all, You will know when they think they are in danger, because things will start changing again like it did in the Attitude Era, their in a safe way now financially and they know it so their not going to risk anything. They probably will be worried about the ratings but not so much so that they need to change things up to much.

I remember the days where I would use a PHONE with a wire on it to call a number I found in my local PAPER of a guy who was selling ECW tapes.

No Internet, No easy access, it was so damn hard to get a hold of these things, but it made it more special.

We're been stuffed with way too much content, and the wrestlers in the game today don't hold a candlestick to those of yesteryear.

Pathetic. Somebody disagrees with the nonesense you spout, so resort to insults and "I've watched longer so I know more", which is yet more nonesense.

That's your opinion, not everybody's. On an internet forum full of people who complain incessantly, you'll get support. But in the real world, (and not just for wrestling) that attitude gets you nowhere. Move on or get left behind.

Re: Who else thinks WWE are fucked?

It staggers me how after watching a mammoth spectacle like Wrestlemania XXVIII (just look at it) and then people say that the WWE is 'fucked'. Their 'wrestling' product may be going downhill but as a business they're thriving like no other. People can bitch and moan about ratings like no other but as someone stated earlier, TV ratings aren't the be-all and end-all these days. This is the digital age, of the internet, the iPad, blah blah blah. Hell, I don't even own a TV, what the fuck do I care?

On the plus side, their wrestling product can only get better, and I predict it will. If you don't keep that optimistic viewpoint, then why the fuck do you keep tuning in?

By the way I wasn't really having a go at you OP, but it's been a big topic as of late.

The WWE is simply in a different state, they're far from being in any real trouble.
