Why are you still watching?

There's barely one thread I go in that doesn't have about five people saying " Raw is shit. WWE sucks now" or something similar along those lines, so my question to you people is what makes you continue to watch? I personally like Raw the way it is right now and believe it's better than it was months ago. This is mainly due to the current CM Punk storyline with Paul Heyman, but I'm also curious as to what they do with Barrett, Sandow, Ryback, and the current tag team division. In fact if it wasn't for CM Punk, I probably wouldn't even be watching, so what or who makes you people continue to watch Raw?

Top 5
CM Punk
The Undertaker
Stone Cold/Triple H (Tied)
Edge
Chris Jericho
Current Top 5
Dean Ambrose
Brock Lesnar
Bray Wyatt
Daniel Bryan
Cesaro

Re: Why are you still watching?

I watch because I am an optimist. I just want something memorable to happen on my screen and if that means wading through seven levels of shit then so be it. People talk about wrestlers paying their dues, what about us fans (hehe).

Out of the current set-up, I enjoy watching CM Punk, Damien Sandow and Daniel Bryan/Kane when they're not being overly repetitive. I'm also casting weary eyes to what they do with Wade Barrett and also this Encore stable. As lackadaisical as it seems now, it's something different and might lead to something, who knows. Apart from that, not much else.

Re: Why are you still watching?

My favorite wrestler is WWE Champion. I like the direction they're taking him in also.
The tag division is heating up and Kane and Bryan are gold.
Some newer wrestlers have debuted this year that I'm interested in (Sandow, Ryback) and Ambrose probably will within the next year too.
Plenty of talented wrestlers in the midcard.
Several potential big matches could happen within the next year.

I guess I just don't think it's as bad as some people do. Plenty of guys have been delivering. It's been a lot worse than it is right now.

Re: Why are you still watching?

I watch for certain performers (today Punk and Bryan) but I now watch RAW online. I just cant sit through a 3 hour show. The only thing I can watch for 3 hours are sporting events and this is coming from a die hard sports junkie.

Think about it. How many movies are actually three hours long? Its just hard to sit there for that long and watch anything.

Re: Why are you still watching?

I only watch certain wrestlers and majority of the main events. When WWE gives a shit about the divas and the midcard then i will start giving a shit and watch them.
As it stand right now, WWE are giving me no reason to get invested in alot of the characters on the roster.

Re: Why are you still watching?

  • I enjoy C.M. Punk and Paul Heyman, however I don't feel Heyman needs to talk on behalf of Punk.
  • I'm loving the tag team division, credit to the WWE for turning one of the worst tag divisions into something enjoyable so quick.
  • Some new wrestlers getting treated well, Cesaro is US Champ (Everyone has to start their career somewhere), Sandow is going up against main eventers and Ryback is moving up.
I have never understood these fans that watch WWE week in week out and do nothing but talk about the negatives, and can't find one positive, even though the show was average to good. I think WWE is alright now, it's nowhere near its worst; anyone remember the guest hosts or the anonymous GM?

Well if you take out the ad breaks, which i'm guessing watching it online does, it goes to about 2 and a half hours, and then if you skip the recaps and boring matches I can usually watch RAW in about 2 hours and 10 minutes. You wont believe how much better it is watching RAW on a DVR or online compared to watching it live.

Re: Why are you still watching?

I like Punk, Ryback, Cesaro. Kane/Bryan are also fun to watch. I also watch because I'm a fan of wrestling in general, and every week I watch Raw I watch it in hopes that something interesting is going to happen to make the product better, I'm an optimist.

Re: Why are you still watching?

I don't. CM Punk was the last straw. Looks like some bartender and is equally as dull. Plus the guy thinks he's Christian Bale or some shit telling fans to 'fuck off'. Busting this vanilla midget bore back to mid-card would be a start in fixing this disaster.
