Re: Interesting study on WWE's business and if it's down
Interesting read OP,
Thanks for sharing.
I'm not a business expert so i try and steer clear of any of that chat,
The issues that always seem to crop up whenever i talk to casual fans are
1: tickets are to expensive. (which they are) I posted the other day how it was cheaper for a family of 4 to go on a weeks holiday abroad at a 4 star hotel flights included, than it was for one front row seat at a WWE PPV.
2: its boring (which i translate to lack of creative) it hasn't been good in years but just recently it really has taken a turn for the worse and that is from a diehard neckbeard who often get accused of being a WWE apologist.
A point i always like to make as it does not get discussed very often is the Heels winning to much,
I know the money is in the chase but i cant remember the last time an all round cheered guy held on to a world title for a good 6 months...?
Its very rare than an episode of SD Live or Raw is feel good,
It always seems like the 'bad guys' dominate far to much,
Which turns it into a very negative show i think.
Its nice to see the good guys come out on top but it doesn't seem to happen very often these days.
It probably sounds a bit stupid but i do think its a really understated point that could do with some real looking into and consideration on WWE's part.
