Why WWE Reveals Their **SPOILERS**

-- Joey Styles, who runs the WWE.com website, responded to fans on Twitter who asked him why the company was releasing spoilers on their own website.

Styles responded to a fan who wrote: "@WWE and @JoeyStyles spoil SmackDown because they'd rather you get the spoiler from them than a wrestling news site." Styles wrote "Bingo!" in response.

Re: Why WWE Reveals Their **SPOILERS**

That's what I was thinking about it. They got fed up with the spoilers ending up in dirtsheets faster than on their web.

Are you ready? #undisputed

Re: Why WWE Reveals Their **SPOILERS**

The thing is that I can avoid dirtsheet spoilers easily. When WWE reveals what happens, it isn't a spoiler anymore - it's something that's become well documented. And that's almost impossible to avoid.

" Hey, there is all the nerds, you know, thoses guys who almost don't count in our ratings, well they know, our results, why do we do ? Just don't care ? No. We tell it before them like that, ALL our audience know the spoilers before the show "

Oh and here the PATETIC reason of why Alberto wins the title


" Hey, how do we build Alberto as a big face ... Oh, I don't wanna work today, let's just give him the title ..."

Re: Why WWE Reveals Their **SPOILERS**

I posted exactly that somewhere yesterday.

Of course that's the reason.

Re: Why WWE Reveals Their **SPOILERS**

i see it as instead of beating other people making spoilers, its a preview.
ADR won the WHC? what the fuck, i have to watch to see how that happened

Re: Why WWE Reveals Their **SPOILERS**

I understand WWE wanting people to go to their site over some other wrestling site to get info like that, but why can't WWE just find a way to not spoil it for people who don't wanna be spoiled.

I'm guessing if Zigglers MITB cashin happens on SD(or a taped Raw), WWE will mention it all over twitter,facebook,their website and everything else possible?

Why couldn't they just be like: "Results from Smackdown! Shocking news from main event!" or something like that. So people who want to know, can find out by clicking the link, people who don't wanna know, won't find out.

That and make the fans go something like this "Oh good golly, Del Rio won the world title? I gotta watch that to find out how that guy beat the world's biggest athlete!!, I gotta tune into Smackdown this week.!"

Re: Why WWE Reveals Their **SPOILERS**

Also, if WWE announce it then they're likely to draw people to their site and get people to go out of their way to watch Smackdown, something which they need to do because Smackdown's contract is up soon, so they need to start getting strong rating in so they command more money from networks when renewing.

Re: Why WWE Reveals Their **SPOILERS**

Its harder to be excited about the rocks return when you hear cold say "the great one, the rock returns tonight live on monday night raw" four times before he comes out, ruins the effect of a return and makes the pop less loud, I never looked at the spoliers for WWE when the rock came back and I marked out to fuck, but when WWE tell me he's coming back I dont bank an eyelid
