Re: WWE has failed at..
You say that as if they don't have stock holders they have to appease with profit margins, that analyze losses, a problem they didn't have to worry about in the years of the past. No company is ever "too big." WWE is still gaining money but their revenue streams are dropping rapidly & it looks like a sinking ship. They need to start plugging holes as they can't coast on Vince McMahon's verbal boardroom bullshit to an uneducated audience forever. That's just reality. They're making money. They're still financially stable. But when you're losing money in areas that used to gain massive profits and you're looking into new areas to try to make up that revenue, you're not problem free.
It's a bigger problem than either marks want to admit or accept. WWE is fucking far away from worry free. If the Mattel line goes away. They're fucked. If USA stops backing them? They're fucked. If they can't sell a Wrestlemania card due to having no names? They're fucked. These are real problems. You can't sell merch or PPV if you have no TV. If you have no TV you have no audience to cater tickets to. If the ratings continue to drop, they lose TV. It's not impossible. Even if they're still the highest rated on USA & people can blame all the excuses they want, DVR, Monday Night Football, whatever. End of the day, USA is a business too & contract negotiations aren't too far off.
