The term "WWE Universe" makes me feel like I'm part of some weird interplanetary wrestling cult. It makes me slightly uncomfortable.

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.

One of Vince's pet peeves that he reinforces everyone to use, similar to it being a 'Championship Title' and not a belt.

Its like during a feud for the WWE or WHC... when they mention the title in a promo... they have to say the name of the title really slowly. "And it will be my... W... W... E.... Title" or "I will be the new.... World... Heavyweight.... Champion"

this. They say WWE universe to make it feel like everyone watches wrestling; when in reality Universe, most people will look at you like you're stupid for watching wrestling or laugh at you. It's just supposed to create comradery and more likely to watch and buy merchandise if you really think you and all your friends are watching too.

If no one rooted for your favorite football team, you'd (I guess statistically) stop rooting for them and go elsewhere. They're doing the reverse by making it look like everyone (WWE UNIVERSE!) is rooting for WWE. Another reason they have fake cheers and boos too.

Doesn't bother me, give the fans a 'name' why not.

Just another part of today's shitty product. Just another reason why I would be absolutely embarrassed to show my non-wrestling fan friends that I watch this shit. In the 80s, 90s, early 2000s, not so much. Now? Absolutely embarrassing to admit we watch this shit.
