Is the fans' stupidity the reason of WWE decadence ?

I can't stop believing that the fans who are able to laugh to Tensai in lingerie, farting Natalya, Hornswoogle, Santino, Cena's humor or even to the stupid anger management jokes are the main reasons of WWE downfall.

Seriously WWE has no incentives to create a better product (storytelling wise), if fans keep being stupid and continue to accept the lowest humor.

The wrestling part is something else, but damn those fans don't help this part too.

Because of them we have more idiotic comedy than wrestling and many wrestlers (jobbers, midcarders) have less possibilities to be built as credible, if they could. I dream about iconic stars losing clean to midcarders or jobbers.

I don't speak about casuals or die-hard fans, there can also be smart casuals who are ashamed of this current product and brainless die-hard fans.

When I see on this very forum some fans older than 20 years old who find some of the stupidiest WWE jokes funny and cool. I can't stop hating this WWE universe. They are the cancer of WWE and the cause of their own suffering.

They must stop bitching about crappy wrestling, Vince or Cena and start to think about the storylines they accept. You are welcome, but your stupidity isn't.

Re: Is the fans' stupidity the reason of WWE decadence ?

I think it is one of the reasons.

All you have to do is look at the fans on their social media sites and you will see that most of the storylines are catered towards them. Rightly so because that's where the money is. But yeah, I think a lot of stuff is dumbed down to make it easy viewing for the casuals, and in turn is affecting the current product.

I'm willing to bet that the kids that WWE are targeting these days enjoy the humor.

That being said, I don't like much of it, although the Team Hell No stuff is great.

Like most of us do yep

In the past, it was funny and enjoyable and yeah we can still hope. My problem and curse is that I have professionnal reasons which force me to watch this crap. I almost wish I could have been fired long ago.

Re: Is the fans' stupidity the reason of WWE decadence ?

You are too arrogant in your thread titling to discount what decades of mental programming and propaganda can do. Sure, we are dumb to have let WWE get here. They certainly pushed to get here and did so very cleverly.

WWE is filled with 'Good Ol' Boys' in power positions. It is just how it is, and I will keep calling WWE, Pro Wrestling in USA, as well as some of it's fans out on this because it is bollox. I do notice an apparent effort being made to mitigate this somewhat, but time will ultimately tell.

Look at who they hire as writers. They're former writers from sitcoms and movies, not people who are familiar with wrestling.

And I almost quit watching Smackdown when the Natayla farting thing started.

The writers aren't good enough to write for a good 2 hour show, nevermind a 3 hour show.
