Remember things can change in a blink of an eye. The US used to be a powerful country at one time too before the became China's bitch.
Thus the power of sponsors. One of the key reasons ratings and live gates dont matter anywhere near as much they did 10 or 20 years ago
These are long term guaranteed large business schemes that provide guaranteed revenue. Same applies with all that crap and toys with the WWE logo on it
Stocks may fluctuate, gates may go up and down, buyrates could change, the roster could change, but its all essentially designed to turn the company into a machine, where the wrestlers are just cogs. Even Vince is just one. And the gears will keep on turning. Not to mention all the capital Vince has available to him if needed
Unlike in the end of the 80s, the 90s boom provided so much money that Vince was able to lose millions on the XFL and not even feel it. He then levied that money into trying to turn the WWE into something stable and efficient, which unfortunately also means, kinda dull
Which is what John Cena is perfect for naturally. Machine is a rather good way to describe him. Most of the rest of the roster, and maybe even John himself, as interchangable
