Re: Why do we as wrestling fans give a damn about ratings?
I'm fairly sure I'm the only that thinks this but here it goes:
I care about ratings because it's a sign of justice for me. WWE in 2012 is really awaful. Bad writing, non existent characters, constant shilling for "charities" (separate discussion: "You're not supposed to brag about giving to charity"), and really at least 10 other things.
When someone does something bad in life, whether it's robbing a bank or something of that nature, people want to see that person get in trouble and if extremely bad may follow the trial on TV to see the verdict of the criminal going to jail.
To me (and again, only speak for myself), Raw getting a low rating makes me happy because they deserve it. Just like someone watching the bank robber go to jail, it does not affect me at all, but it makes me feel good that justice prevailed.
I'm more annoyed that people blame Monday Night Football when ratings are down in 2012. NEWS FLASH: Football was NOT invented in 2012. Now, that is an argument that I will never understand.
In regards to WWE, we are not in the PG Era. We are in the Watered Down Era!
"Triple H fans will say that everything is true if it has to do with making him look good. And if it's a bad rumor, it's not true because "it's from the dirtsheets"."
Triple H fans are the worst!
