Re: Will there ever be a time when WWE will be accepted by mainstream society again?
You know how most years, WWE coasts until they get to Mania season, and then they put in a solid effort Jan-April? If WWE put that effort and energy in to the majority of their shows throughout the year, like they did in the Hulkamania era, like they did in the Attitude Era/Monday Night Wars, I think you'd see a spike in mainstream acceptance.
It's hard for me right now, everything's so stale and lifeless. I was just at Mania 33 and that was great, but the creative energy from the writers and bookers, and even the energy from the talent seems a bit lacking. I haven't been able to watch a full episode of Raw or SD for a couple of weeks now. I'll tune in for Takeover and Backlash but yeah. I've been watching almost 20 years and given WWE a lot of my money. If current WWE can't hold MY interest, how are they going to attract new viewers? And really, WWE don't seem that interested in attracting new viewers. As long as they can hold steady, it's all good. That hunger seems to have gone.
