In my opinion the WWE is the face of wrestling in America, if the WWE sucks it will impact the image of the entire wrestling business.
But i agree with you on TNA, they can't help but shoot themselves in the foot by trying to be sports entertainment like the WWE.

There's also a good amount of people that don't want to see him have the title again.

Ryback became an attempt at doing something fresher but obviously that feud hasn't changed anything either. The celebration wasn't just about Punk, it was also about the feud since Ryback was invited.
Bingo. Great post right here. I've been saying this for months to friends of mine who are wrestling fans. One of the biggest problems WWE has is that they have not built up big enough credible faces. It's all fine and dandy to have built up this mega heel Punk has become as champion but without the yin to the yang so to speak there is no reason to watch. Ryback will obviously not be the guy because he's just been pushed into that position without really much build up. There really isn't much reason for the casual fan to watch until Rock comes back because there is no credible wrestler who the fans believe can take the title from Punk. I think its at least a reason why the ratings have been falling including the 3 hour format, the lack of creativity in the product, horrible storylines (see AJ scandal) etc.

Wrestling has been stagnant for years now and seems to be on a downward spiral. Of course the ratings will probably pick up around the road to Mania because you'll have Rock, HHH, Lesnar and maybe Taker coming back and its usually when WWE finally decides to kick itself up the ass for the biggest show of the year.

I hope these ratings continue to slide and the product is rebooted without VM Punk. The only reason I'm even on this site is because of the TNA forum, I just post in WWE sections because I happened to be signed up. Otherwise its worse than dead to me.
Worse than dead? Now that's intense

I'm kind of trying to picture what could be worse than dead. Maybe he's on fire and is experiencing all the pain that goes with it, but he's also immortal so he can't die...

^Brutal.

Hope Mr. Punk is scouring these forums so he can fully comprehend the pain and anguish he brings to us loyal fans.

Because it's mostly from idiotic dullards who can't think of logical reasons to give constructive criticism on a guy who is one of the top guys in the promotion at the moment, so they resort to lame attempts at humour.
