How would you raise ratings?
There are many concerns that ratings are tanking, the product is too child friendly, to much pandering to celeb/twitter/casual.
I am curious how would you turn WWE around? What are your ideas to bring in ratings/money for the company? How would you take the company back to the top?
The first thing I would change is the over saturation of the product. I would have Raw Monday 2 hrs, Smackdown live on USA Fridays. ScyFi is not a big enough and is not wide enough range for the WWE. and I looked at the next 3 months to see whats on friday night on usa? SVU reruns, smackdown can get better ratings than that.
I would get rid of Superstars and main event, and if you wanna keep them put them on youtube or hulu, if the match is good enough it will get the hype. I would keep Saturday morning slam but not with new matches, I would have it review the shows and do the fluff pieces that they show on raw, Like the old superstars.
The next thing is to get rid of some PPV , the economies down and the internet streams then illegally now.. 13 wont work I would say 8, 10 tops. stories will be force to be used to sell and will get more people wanting too
With the actual product? I would bring back height classes, I turned on Raw 3-4 times in the last 2 months with people who used to watch but now dont. They all said the same thing, this is so unrealistic, he is so small. no one really thinks rey, sin cara and the likes of them can beat kane and tensai.
There are a few more things but what do you think shuld change to take wrestling to the top again
