Default Do you wish you were a casual fan?

Sometimes I wish I didn't care about the product so much and just accept everything the E does, or be one of those dudes on TOUT who genuinely believes my TOUT will make a difference and not question the lazy booking, lack of real star power etc.. ignorance would be bliss

sometimes yes, cuz i feel like i may enjoy the product more. but at the same time their business plan should encompass all of the fans. they have full time creative writers, i feel like they need to step it up too. not just our fault, but some of it is ours.

You can be a casual fan.

Dont take things so serious, that's a lesson for smarks.

Enjoy the entertainment, that is all there is, not real. Not life or death.

Just smile and enjoy the show sometimes. That is healthy.

Nah, I'm fine as it is. Don't really care about booking or who gets pushed unless it involves a favorite and hell, I barely watch anything of today as it is. Just sticking to the classic stuff when it was truly good.

I would like the booking and stories to be better most times however it doesn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the WWE's product. Also educating myself from interviews, documentaries and books on wrestling shows the business is radically different from how smarks view it or would want it to be about in a "perfect world."

Sure, because let's face it, you HAVE to be a casual fan to enjoy a product who pushes this type of talent and storylines on its public.

Uh then if you want to be a casual fan, there's nothing stopping you from being one.

Just have the willpower to not navigate to dirt sheets, and this forum

I think if more "hardcore" fans paid to see certain guys (I'm sure there is a way to gauge that ROI) then the product would be at least different from what we have today.

That's not gonna change the fact that the bubble has already been burst. I'm not some babyface loving sheep like people who cheer for Rock and Cena, I can't JUST magically revert to that, it's not possible. That's the essence of being a casual fan, not whether you listen to Meltzer or not.

Tbh, when I left the forum for a about a month and a half earlier this year, everything felt pretty cool. The Rock/Punk hype was on fire, I enjoyed the average matches the two had with each other, and just tuning in every week without logging on the forums felt good. On the the other hand, I like coming here to discuss and stuff but at the same time the amount of irrational statements, trolls and other bs that floats around here makes it really garbage.
