Despite avredge ratings WM 28 was the most bought and watched PPV in wrestling history, more then any Attitude Era PPV. the wrestling industry is very healthy despite what you keep telling yourself.
No, it isnt. Ratings have dropped, and buyrates have dropped in every ppv the last years. Yeah, wrestelmania 28 had a great buyrate. But what happens when all the dream Rock, Brock, and Cena matches happens. Then the ratings will drop. The WWE will fall eventually, its only on buyed time thanks to draws like Rock and Brock.

Yep, AE stars and Cena still pretty much responsible for WM's financial success in recent years.

I don't think the dream matches you list disappearing will have that big of an impact on ratings, year-round. And perhaps not even much at all. What will perhaps be hit hard as a direct consequence, however, is WWE pay-per-view. That's been the single most erosion-devastated aspect of WWE's business, and it's been declining for years now. It's why the gimmick PPVs were created, it's one reason (though hardly the biggest) why the emphasis on Wrestlemania keeps growing every single year, since it's the big honey pot for WWE every year. They rely on it more heavily today than ever before.

And Batista.

It is true, to a very significant degree. Because of the mega success of Austin, WWE was able to expand. Internationally, domestically. More revenue streams opened up. The company went public. The concept of weekly Raws being live took hold. The television show Smackdown. Out of The Rock, came ever more expansion, greater success, a litany of broken records and more international strides. With Cena and Batista, even more international penetration, enormous licensing deals and even more solid sponsors, and an increase in the split roster's live events duties, as well as a more streamlined conveyor belt of merchandise than ever before.

Right now, the company is fundamentally still going based chiefly on the aftereffects of these time periods, and most recently with the return of The Rock spurring quadrants of business coupled to the stability of John Cena at the top which creates an immediate sense of order for the new arrivals and returning stars like Rock and Lesnar (Rock needed to have his match vs. Cena and Lesnar giving anyone but Cena that F5 the night he returned would have meant exponentially less).

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

Look at the roster, do you really see the next Lesnar, Rock and Austin on it?

They are not there, Vince knows this. Hence why all the old names are coming back.

Once the well dries up on that front, WWE are in big trouble. A blind man can see that.

Domestically even the most dark eras were doing better. WWE lost money in the last quarter for the first time in more than 10 years. There's a reason why Vince is in panic mode to bring back real stars like Rock and Brock to save the biggest show of the year which is the biggest difference maker of their revenue, in 2011 they were supposed to lose a lot money but were almost where they were the year before because of the amazing game-changer Rock was in his WM program. This year? same thing if the WM buyrate is really 1.1 million which is going to be the highest grossing pro wrestling event of all time(it's already, but they need to wait till May to announce it officially).

Anyway, you can't except something from a roster full of clueless geeks who think that this business is a school trip, including the champions(not Sheamus, he understands the business), last year Vince STOLE money from their pockets and these fools didn't even know about it! do you realize how pathetic it is? this is not the same industry of MEN, this is now a circus full of kids. This is the main reason why wrestling is going down every year, WWE are not dying tomorrow, it's a slow process but it's going to happen, that's inevitable with the sad state of the industry in terms of talent and mentality.
God, you do come out with some crap sometimes... "a roster full of clueless geeks who think that this business is a school trip, including the champions" - but not Sheamus. What the fuck does this nonsense even mean? Of course with the champions line, you're implying that Punk doesn't understand the business, but I think you'll find he understands the business a sight better than most - better than that joke Sheamus, and certainly better than you do. Tbh, the only clueless geek here is you.

The only clueless geek here is you. If you think that Sheamuas is a joke tell it to him in real life and get beaten up.
Understands better the busieness better than most? Is that why he cried in 2007 because Hogan didn't answer him when he said hi to him?




And yeah Punk is a clueless geek, that's why the gm focuses on Lesnar than Punk. And yeah we all know that you are mad because Lesnar gets more airtime than Punk and we all know he would kick you ass in real life.
