Re: WWE Is Paying for the Last 8 Years

They need to get rid of the "fuck the midcard" mentality, realize that not everyone has to be World Champion (even though the ones who prove themselves should be), and focus on trying to get the ENTIRE ROSTER over with the fans.

it's even sillier when thinking back how wrestlers like Stone Cold, The rock, HHH, all got beat clean many times yet look at them now. The only people who were booked like Cena are now un-employed or forgotten. I figure it's like the Hogan effect. Though Hogan was unbeatable most of his career (way more exceptions than Cena, and still very few clean loses) he was hella over. The WWE finally has someone who kids love the same way, and they don't want to let go. But how many people during the attitude era were getting beaten clean and still selling like crazy? it's like WWE is forgetting their own sales tactics.

The old man is a cancer.
let's be fair. Vince did more for WWE than anyone, and he is to praise and blame for the current product. I don't think you can pin all the faults on him.

I agree with getting rid of the 'fuck the midcard' mentality. It's like after a a midcarders push, they'll feed him to Cena or Shemaus (or Ryback or Punk too) whenever their overness is low at the moment. Looking at it from a child's perspective these mid-carders all just blend in with each other; especially when compared to Cena and Sheamus.

Re: WWE Is Paying for the Last 8 Years

The ratings were 2 hour Raws were bad enough. So add another hour?


That has got to be Kane.

Re: WWE Is Paying for the Last 8 Years

2.5 rating for 3 hours it's not that bad. It's the same rating that we get for October-December period since 2009. In 2 hour format this rating was gonna be around 2.8-2.9.

Anyone, even non-wrestling fans (I'm assuming) can watch a 3 hour raw, and have a 90% success rate in guessing what happens next. It's uninteresting, non-compelling, force-fed bullshit that no one wants to watch anymore. The only reasons a good number of us still watch is because we're either desperately hoping things will turn around soon, or because we want to watch this train wreck unfold.

They have so much unbelievably able bodies in the company right now who are being underused or misused, and instead are giving guys like Brodus and Tensai unneeded screen time. I want to see more of guys like Kidd, Riley, DiBiase, Rhodes etc. I dont want to see ANOTHER FUCKING GUY building a streak (Tensai, Clay, Ryback, Cara).

Re: WWE Is Paying for the Last 8 Years

the root of the problem is vince

creative members have spoken out saying he surrounds himself with yes man, if someone does have a good idea it gets shot down or he gets fired, vince is a character, we all know that, plus the guy is old and out of touch

and then there's hhh who is the new "vince", and is slowly taking over, buries the entire roster saying he and only he is the only man on takers level

hhh/taker and hhh/lesnar served no purpose besides feeding his ego, that whole undertaker wrestlemania 28 storyline came off as hhh trying to appear to be on hbk/takers level, he wanted the fans to view him as on there level which he is not

and the broomstick comment, i mean how come its taking this long to get a 2.5, should of happened months if not years ago

its nice to see fans finally giving up on this company after years of abuse

whats his next move, let me guess
rush cena back, keep overworking punk, then both of them will become even more injured and worn out then they will be stuck with no true main eventer

then he calls lesnar/taker/rock/austin, all north of 40 for help meanwhile crapping on the entire roster

but you guys keep blaming the cowboys game, nice way to ignore the real problem

Re: WWE Is Paying for the Last 8 Years

over 92 percent of this forum can put on a better product then the wwe. not sure what is he going on, the only thing i can think of is that Raw is not a top priority anymore. or any other wwe show.

Re: WWE Is Paying for the Last 8 Years

They do it to themselves. They kill off any momentum anyone has barring their golden boys just to fuck with them. Ryder, Truth, Riley, McIntyre, Rhodes, Barrett, etc. Not to mention the top notch talent they've let go off or killed off over the years. It's sad and pathetic. I legit would not mind if the company went under. Serves them right. This is worse than WWF '95. At least WWF '95 was so bad it was entertaining. Plus you still had Taker, Hart, and Michaels.
