More like they capitalized on something Vince McMahon went and created. The world of television was all about car crash TV, trash TV, so what do the WWE do? Make some car crash TV, cater towards and audience that ate that shit up. Get some female wrestlers who parade around in little to nothing, get some beer swigging guys who just want to kick the shit out of each other, add some profanity and you have a TV show that was always going to get watched, regardless of who it was. You probably could have had Sandman in Austins position, DDP in The Rocks etc. and they'd have probably drawn a shit load too.

You fastforward to present day and you have the likes of Justin Bieber in the charts, the era of skinny jeans, men who straighten there hair etc. it's a completely different world to what it was so the WWE cater towards that. They start using the profanity, the woman wearing little to nothing, beer, blood etc. they'd lose a lot of viewers, I can guarantee you that.

The real issue is WWE refusal to push anyone other than Cena


"another boom". Absolute bull shit and the sad thing is, you actually believe yourself. No one is making anything of Smackdown. WCW was pushing the envelope all the time and there product was always PG. The rating isn't the problem. Rock's curses aren't anything more than PG, he's saying the likes of bitch and ass. They're hardly curses, they're different animals.

@JohnCena @wwe Agreed. Excellent for the company. I'm gonna start calling you "Rolex" and we'll see what happens..
Maybe go all the way and call someone a "Ferrari". Needs to be someone that he really loves though. The Magician.

It would be great if Cookie Puss earns Punk a new sponsorship deal. All thanks to the Ali/Federer/Pele/Babe Ruth of wrestling

We don't have 2 guys close to Rock or Austin.

I agree to an extent with the rest of the post. MNW's inflated wrestling's popularity. That can't be recreated.

I know we don't. Unless wrestling becomes in any way shape or form "socially acceptable" or "popular" again in the mainstream public, we probably never will. That's just my view anyway.

No, someone like Punk could never get to Austin's level under any scenario known to man.

No one could get to Austins level.

Then again, this is not the right thread. We are going way off topic here. This is a thread for Rock/Punk. Which I am looking forward to this Sunday!

You just lost all chances of ever being taken seriously by me with that comment.

True but if Punk was booked like Cena back when he was hot he wouldve been far bigger than Cena ever was and probably been a big draw.
