Re: How bad is WWE currently?


First half of 2012 was great, after Extreme Rules the product has sucked. I refuse to watch Raw live anymore, I usually record it and fast forward through all the ads/tout/Ryback squashes. Punk/Heyman and whatever they're involved in are the only things that entertain me, and 3MB of course, GOATs.

i just sit at home and watch the tickets being sold off the ticketmaster website to see whos drawing

sometimes if the show is in town, i feel extra daring and go to the arena and watch them sell tickets IN PERSON

other day i started jerking off in the ticket both at all that DRAWING and had to be escorted out of the arena

So bad that their top star was stolen from the Indy market.

It really isn't as bad as you make it out to be.

Re: How bad is WWE currently?

From one of my earlier posts:

Every week I keep finding excuses to tune in. Every week I think this is the week we'll see a Rock return/Nexus debut/Punk promo/2011 MITB/night after Wrestlemania 28 like moment that will give me hope that change is upon the horizon. But that is all they eventually turn out to be - just moments. I'm simply kidding myself if I believe these are catalysts for change. WWE doesn't care about change. They don't care about taking risks, and why should they? As long as their pockets stay full, all they care about is following the status quo, blindly appeasing to as many demographics as possible without any sense of vision or direction toward the company's future.

With each and every passing week, especially with the conversion to 3 hour programming, I'm finding it harder and harder to stay up to date. With each and every passing week, I wonder why I even tune it at all. Force of habit? Nothing else on? Storylines are illogical. The booking is laughable. The superstars, while talented, don't inspire me to care. Cookie cutter good guys. Cookie cutter bad guys. Cartoonish gimmicks with no depth whatsoever. Matches booked just for the sake of filling up time. Where is the sense of rivalry? What inner motives do these competitors have to face one another, and what is the incentive of the fans to watch them?

There is no ultimate goal. There is no buildup to something other than to hype an inevitable PPV match, then it's rinse and repeat. Nowadays, the biggest draws for the company are former superstars that show up once every few months. Do they serve a bigger purpose in a storyline? No, they are simply there to draw. More money in WWE's pockets. More money to spend on useless expansions. More excuses for fans to get suckered in and replenish their spendings. It's a never ending cycle.

Everyone wants to speculate as to what era we are in. The truth is there is no era. It's a clusterfuck of shallow, unorganized, undeveloped, discombobulated ideas thrown together with hopes of appealing to as many casual fans as possible in an effort to exploit the evolving technology that is social media. In times past, I may have been frustrated with the way a certain episode ended. I would tell myself I'm never watching WWE again, foolishly thinking that my boycott will make a difference, and the following week I'm right back to my old habits, never learning my lesson. Now that I see this company for what it truly is, it will be a while before I make that mistake again.

Re: How bad is WWE currently?

I dont think its bad. Its a bit bland at times, but you need some down time so that you can have big times. If everything was a big event all the time, they would no longer be big events. They would be normal events and we'd be begging for bigger events. Calm down and take a few weeks off. Its not bad, its just bland.

Re: How bad is WWE currently?

RAW is still watchable.... it's Smackdown that really... and I mean REALLY went down the drain a long long time ago. God that show sucks. At this point, I don't think it can ever be saved.
