Re: The Over 30 year old WWE fan thread
I'm still pretty passionate about pro-wrestling. I do find myself getting worked up when I feel like things aren't going swimmingly. For me, I think the reason is because I have been watching & following wrestling for so long, I feel like all of my time invested should mean something, as a fan. Instead, WWE constantly makes me feel like not only does me being a fan not matter, but they don't care at all that I ever existed. The fans that were there to put them on the map are completely forgotten about like we don't exist. I understand building new audiences & your product switching gears & everything but I don't think it should be at the cost of alienating long-term fans. I have been watching WWE for twenty-five years. Through Hogan, through Hart, through Diesel, through Austin, through Rock, through Triple H & through Cena. I guess the marketing "strategy" is that we're not going to ever go away if we haven't yet but that's not true. I didn't watch RAW last week because the Royal Rumble was so bad. Although I did watch (and enjoy) RAW this week, I would leave if things didn't improve. Without the return of Mark Henry, the Punk/Jericho match or Brock Lesnar, that's a completely different show. The ending was still dreadful. The first hour might as well have not even happened.
