Because ratings is what keeps your TV on the air. If you like to watch the WWE people would be interested to know what their ratings are like because it impacts if they will able able to watch the WWE in the future.
I have been saying on other forums that WWE is lucky that there isn't a WCW type company right now. Looking past going to 3 hours WWE is looking very much like WCW 2000 everyday.
I also think a lot of people are over looking that the WWE is just rinse and repeating their road to WrestleMania's every year. You always the have moment of staring at the banner or the big name coming back to get in a promo battle. You have the same names rumored to be involved with the same names. You put Taker in a match we know he won't lose.
I remember Chris Jericho was interviewed on the Monday Night Wars DVD and he said you couldn't tell what day it was in WCW well the WWE is right there in that same boat.
Nothing is new. Rock and Punk felt like we turned back the clock and replaced Cena with Punk. They used the same material and PUnk went back to breaking the 4th wall. Would be nice if we didn't hear that stuff all the time, but we do. Kind of has no impact after watching it all the time.
