They don't care much right now because there's no believable competition, they are alone in the #1 spot.

Well stuff like MMA imo has put a dent in professional wrestling as a whole. It probably won't die for a very long time though.

If WCW could fall, so could WWE. And seeing as how they're emphatically following in their footsteps, it might even be inevitable. It might take longer seeing as how they have no real competition, but like I said... 10 years. Tops.
I beg to differ.


WCW never really made money but had a man in charge with deep pockets from other much more successful ventures (TBS, TNT, CNN, Atlanta Braves) and he didn't care about the company. While WCW may not have made money, it made his networks big money. Not to mention, WCW was so disorganized that even Jesus couldn't save it.

Not saying that WWE won't fail, as any business could fail. But, don't categorize them with WCW. One was poorly ran since '88 and killed the NWA off for good, while the other has had so much success, it's going to take more than shitty booking, lack of competition or making a champion out of a guy everybody hates, for them to go out of business.

So, unless something horrendous happens that has an affect deeper than pro wrestling, such as the things I mentioned in a previous post, I wouldn't be surprised the world comes to an end before WWE does.

To kill pro wrestling you need to kill the WWE. The only way that's going to happen is something REALLY fucked up, like a Vince McMahon lead paedophile ring.

Re: Is there anything that could kill the WWE or pro wrestling for good?

The WWE are on the verge of killing themselves. The WWE isn't a real sport like football, basketball or hockey, it's entertainment. It's closer to sitcoms than it is to any sport. The WWE need to come up with good storylines and characters in order to stay in business, something they are not doing a good job of at the moment. Just look at their ratings and buy rates for the last 6 years, they have gone down every single year. As for pro wrestling in general, I can see it becoming less and less popular to the point where it virtually becomes non-existent. One day the biggest wrestling companies will be no bigger than the likes of ROH.

I can't really think of anything because WWE has been through quite a bit and found a way to survivor everytime. It might take some like a live murder during a match or something like that maybe.
