I watch on the off chance that one or more of the matches will actually draw me in to the story taking place (or the same for a promo). I guess it's that I don't want to miss anything that COULD happen so I sit through what I don't like and might get rewarded with what they should be doing the majority of the show.

*forgot Lesnar


Austin is in my top favs, but I don't get that excited to see him anymore.

Other than that, anything else entertaining that could/does happen at times.

Exactly. No matter what show people watch, I'm sure there's some stuff on it that don't like. Whether it be a character, or a storyline or something.

The fact that there's 5-6 hours of main WWE stuff on a weekly basis(not including the "C-D Level shows") makes everything magnified. 10% of bad things on Raw today would equal about 13-14 minutes(since without commercials,Raw is about 130-140mins) 10% of bad things on a standard 1hour show would be about 4 mins(since 1hr shows last around 40-45 mins)

So there's much bigger chance of less entertaining stuff on a 3 hour show. Other than WWE(and not including sports), the only other thing people ever see that lasts 2-3 hours are movies, and those are completely different in its ability to make people sit for 2-3 hours. So when the only other 2-3 hour thing people watch, is a 100M+ budget movie, it makes other things seem not as good.

For me at least, I watch cause I still like watching. Many people here sound like they're being strapped to a chair and forced to watch WWE each week, but I watch cause I like it. I've been watching for over 10 years and while I know now isn't as good as around other times in WWE, I treat it like a sports team. WWE is "rebuilding" meaning there will be slow periods, but it'll be great again, and the inbetween period still has it's moments of great stuff.

Won't it feel much more rewarding in the future when you see WWE being real great again, knowing you stuck around even in a lesser time. Attitude Era seemed like a bandwaggon era for WWE. They gained lots of fans when it was popular,but the second it started being less popular, people stopped watching.

The simplest answer is because for me, from show to show, the good outweighs the bad. It's not perfect, but I'm not one of those over critical wrestling fans. I accept WWE for what it is and that allows me to enjoy the product presented to me.

Simple,I like wrestling and good mic work.Sure the WWE can be fucking retarded at times but when you've got guys like Punk,Cesaro,Ziggler,Bryan etc it'll just keep me watching.

Don't get me wrong, guys, I still watch as well.

My days go back To Mid South Wrestling, with your play by play by young Jim Ross. This was about the time of the debut of the Fabulous Freebirds. yeah, I just showed my age. I used to watch whatever wrestling our antenna picked up. I loved having a ton of different territories in which to watch.

Along comes VInce, takes away the top draws from them and bam, they disappear, never to find new and exciting talent again. Once a territory closed, that meant a loss in potential wrestling talent. Eventually, the pickings are going to get slim.

Many fans, including myself, in these forums would watch Cambodian Rice Field Wrestling if given the opportunity and Vince knows this. He doesn't HAVE to cater to us....or so he thinks. I guess he doesn't understand that us fans WILL watch, but we won't attempt to bring in any new viewers(our friends) to watch with us. Often we'd be embarrassed to have our friends see us watching WWE when they're putting on the clown shoes.


Yes, I admit there are wrestlers more than worth watching, but we all cringe as we know Vince will do something to wreck their "Ring cred".

im not sure there is much we can do except as fans put our real feelings out there but realize at the same time that its a PG market. the pop in the audiences now are like little kids screaming.. and adults acutally cheering when CM Punk comes out. this is a dying company. they wont say it. and we fans will refuse to believe it. but it is obvious the ship is sinking. weather or not they patch it up and release a better product is yet to be seen. but who knows times have been dark before. and here we are. i think alot of us still hang on because in some odd way its a part of us, to our own degrees!

This. Repped.

The only way WWE will change is if a rival promotion starts getting bigger numbers in crowds, ratings and PPV buys.
I keep watching because I'm a fan and I aren't willing to give up yet,
