Default Why aren't wrestlers able to draw anymore?

Like guys such as Hogan, Andre, Savage, Flair, Rock, Lesnar, HHH, HBK, Bret, Taker, and Austin were able to do? The last wrestler who became a legit mainstream draw was Cena, and even Cena doesn't draw the ratings the way most of those guys did. Batista, Punk, and Orton draw a little bit too, but not to the level of the guys who did in the past, or even to the extent that Cena does.

Personally I'm a huge fan of a lot of today's wrestlers, like Punk, Ziggler, Sandow, Cesaro, Barrett, Rhodes, Del Rio and other guys who people here find boring, but why do they have so little mainstream relevance?

Because WWE does not know how to build up stars properly and emotionally draw us into their characters.

Because they keep giving Cena the spotlight.

Only Hogan,Austin,Rock and Andre are bigger draws than Cena.The others are legends but not bigger draws than John Cena.

WWE rushes things too quickly.We as an audience can't get emotionally involved with the wrestlers.

Nor do they know how to properly promote wrestling matches. Who cares about a match after we see the guys fighting every single week.

Also this, they have a match on Raw one week, then seemingly the next PPV, baffling.

I got one thing to say.

And that is PG Wrestling for Kids suck.

That's why.

Kayfabe is dead. Wrestling is not the same.

That's the hard reality.

Why superstars dont draw anyone? I think its a number of things bad booking and the fact wrestling as a whole isnt as popular or as cool as it used to be back in the late 80's to early 00's. which is a shame.
