Re: Why do we continue to watch?

I don't watch more than 30 minutes per week if that much of new shows anymore. If you had told me in 2006 that CM Punk and Bryan Danielson would be major stars in the WWE in 2012 and I wouldn't care about the product I'd have said no way. It's hard to believe a company with this much talent can't put on a cohesive weekly show. I think it's time for new writers and Vince to step down(fat chance I know).

Surely though they can tell whats a good idea and whats a bad idea... they can discard the shit ones and then use the good ones... its not hard... unless they really are as stupid as we think.

Re: Why do we continue to watch?

Has anyone here noticed that Vince McMahon has reinvented wrestling a dozen times, and created a bunch of different characters? If he didn't create them, he at least created the platform for them. WCW sat on Undertaker, Triple H, and Stone Cold. When Kurt Angle asked Ric Flair which company to sign with, Flair said to sign with Vince, because Vince would come up with a character, and sure enough we have the condescending role model that (along with The Rock) made me a wrestling fan. The entire sports entertainment model comes from Vince, with the exception of the nWo, which is with guys that Vince made into recognizable stars. If you don't want his cartoon world of crazy characters, go watch ROH or Japanese wrestling. If you want a crappy version of sports entertainment, watch TNA. Vince is the reason we're all fans.

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
Del Rio, Orton, Bryan, Ziggler, Wyatt, Usos, Cesaro, Mysterio, Kane
DGPW: Doi, Yoshino, Tozawa, Yamato, Dragon Kid, BxB Hulk, Ricochet, Super Shisa
NJPW: Okada, Nakamura, Styles ROH: Briscoes, Fish and O'Reilly, Young Bucks
All-Time: Rock, Punk, Lesnar, Angle

Re: Why do we continue to watch?

I don't watch as much as I used to now, but I usually try to tune in because I seem to miss great stuff when I don't (a third of the time at least). Sucks that lately whenever I tuned in, AJ, Santino, or the end of a tag match is on the screen.

Re: Why do we continue to watch?

I don't..
But I plan to when The Rock comes back, he's the only thing that is remotely interesting.

The problem is WWE only seem to give a fuck around Wrestlemania, then the rest of the year is complete horseshit.

Other great Vince McMahon creations:
Bastion Booger-guy was ugly enough, but add snot to every promo and then have him eating an ice cream bar in order to sell it...
Red Rooster-Take Terry Taylor, one of the best technical wrestlers in the world, give him a red comb look to his hair, and come to the ring with rooster crows..and play a wrestler who didn't know any holds.
Earthquake
Tugboat
Repo Man
i could go on and on and on..
