Who else thinks WWE are fucked?

It's been brewing for years.

20 years ago wrestling was special. To the kids who don't know it was like let me explain it to you.

Here in Australia we would get to see wrestling on the TV once every so often, Americans had their Saturday morning shows, the Canadians too, Mexicans have their lucha libre and the Japanese had their hardcore style too. Many independent promotions offered different alternatives too.

Although there was so much product, we never had the internet, TV stations didn't air that much wrestling and even if they did, it was all different!

Everything in America is now under the same umbrella. It's WWE and nothing else for the majority.

It's a massive brand and they're still making a lot of money, but there's much concern for McMahon's precious baby.

1. The companies worth has deteriorated to the point where McMahon is only worth 500million - half of what he was worth 10 years ago.

2. The big time superstars are going, going or gone,

3. The new guys just don't cut the mustard.

4. Too much wrestling airs on TV.

5. History is irrelevant. No one cares about the titles, storylines end abruptly and they're never revisited or acknowledged (just look at Cena Vs. Punk, they've started a 'new' rivalry. It's the same guys, who've fought a million times before, but now...it's for a different reason!)

6. The fans are fucking lame. Wrestling was cool because the people who attended the shows were at their prime. You had a mixture of teens, male adults, kids, woman...but now you have families and families just don't provide a hostile atmosphere that WRESTLING events require. It's almost like we're going to watch The Wiggles now when WWE come in town. No longer are the wrestlers 'cool rock stars', they are children entertainers

7. Linda McMahon's campaign will prevent anything from changing.

8. The world has moved on, wrestling doesn't matter anymore. It's past it's time, there's still a market, but not for the masses anymore. People who watch wrestling now are as cool as those who listen to Nickleback, oh and guess what...Nickleback was the theme to Wrestling for years right?

9. No tag division, mid card division, cruiserweight division (oh hey remember when they got some midget that can't wrestle to retire a belt that was given such great credibility by guys like Guerrero, Mysterio, Malenko, Jericho, Benoit..)

10. The woman who are hired cannot hold a candle to Lita, Trish, Stacy and the golden era of talent that we were lucky to see from 97-03

I haven't watched since Jericho left, he's my favourite so once he went, I went with him. I don't care for the product, the wrestlers irritate me and the entire direction of the show fucking pisses me off.

After last weeks rating, the consistently terrible ratings in general and the lower profile that the WWE has in pop culture, it's safe to say that eventually you'll start to see the ratings lower more, the arenas empty more and the fans just switching off.

After all this shit, I can just say that the WWE does get ONE thing right every year. WrestleMania. Once they fuck that up too, we're done.

Re: Who else thinks WWE are fucked?

Well said. WWE is a sinking ship. Wrestling pretty much started to die a slow death after the Attitude Era but at least during 2002-2006, there were still plenty of passionate fans and interest left. Since 2007 but right now more than ever, the company and wrestling on a whole is on life support. With the increasing popularity for UFC, wrestling is a thing of the past and MMA has become the new "cool thing".

Everything is worse than before. Literally no star power, uninteresting vanilla talent, non-existent midcard and women's division, childish unappealing shows and very little interest. The families that are around will be gone in a year or two because the show is the same thing all the time and they can enjoy Cena overcoming the odds so many times before it gets boring and their kids grow out of it. Passionate fans are also being driven away save for a few hardcore ones that put up with anything. Before you know it, with the constantly low ratings, WWE may lose its TV deal and shit will hit the fan.

Re: Who else thinks WWE are fucked?

no they're not, whenever they go that far down they have their ways to come back. Their are new guys that have potential and some of the main eventers are interesting to watch, so they're not fucked just yet. They have many great feuds still upcoming. They will be fucked when there is no hope at all.

Not Removing Until:

John Cena faces Undertaker at Wrestlemania [ ]

Sheamus and Cm Punk are the 2 World Champions [X] -Wrestlemania 28

John Morrison wins World Title [ ]

John Cena losses cleanly [X]- Wrestlemania 28 Rock Beats John Cena


John Cena turns heel [ ]

Shawn Michaels returns for One More Match[ ]

Daniel Bryan beats a Main Eventer cleanly [ ]

Re: Who else thinks WWE are fucked?

By the time 2007 rolled around, I was done. The product did not entertain me at all. I am not quite sure why I returned this year, but I did. And I agree with every point you made.

Re: Who else thinks WWE are fucked?

WWE aren't going to lose their TV contract any time soon, if they were ever at threat they'd just kill off a few shows, return RAW to 2 hrs and thus concentrate their audience once again. That being said we're at a really crappy stage in wrestling almost the same as the whole cartoony era and the Diesel title reign. Something has to change sooner or later; I'm actually really surprised that WWE hasn't gone edgy again to combat UFC but I guess that route isn't available until Linda finally gives up her stupid political ambitions.

Peaked in what sense? Financially?, work wise? Depth of field? None of the above
