The casuals do not. They only care about John Cena. That's it. And quite frankly AJ Lee and Ryback are starting to climb their way up to being cared about by the casuals. But to be honest, I feel like Ryback has all ready lost a step with the casuals from where he was pre Hell in a cell. AJ is on her way to female version of Cena status with the casuals pretty soon. But other than that? Nothing.
Why do you think the crowd is so dead EVERY week? That's it. They don't give two shits about anyone not named John Cena.
We can analyze it all we want.
I really think it's as simple as that.
And that is a serious problem for WWE, and completely their fault by the way.
Well, that's because WWE is stupid, and since 2005, they never bothered to build someone as Cena's arch nemesis, his eternal rival. Austin had The Rock and HHH, Hogan had Andre and Warrior, and so on... But Cena just goes over randomers all the fucking time. Umaga, Lashley, Batista, Orton, even Lesnar. They're all just randomers compared to Cena. Well, they're trying something (God knows what) with Punk, but he's let's face it - it's fucking CM Punk, people don't care about him.
To sum it up, Cena lacking a generation rival = bad things longterm.
