Re: WWE don't have the talent to do 5 hour shows : Dave Meltzer
Agreed. But there's a lot of top of that as well.
There's only so many people that the fans actually care about, because there's only so many people that the fans are allowed to care about, and because the fanbase has a lot of hipsters thesedays who only like one specific kind of wrestler. Watching five hours of programming when most of the wrestlers featured are directionless jobbers is a chore.
No one feels like a real star anymore. Both Rumbles were hit hard by this it was just jobber after jobber, nobody after nobody, directionless midcarder after directionless midcarder. Overrated NXT nobody after overrated NXT nobody. They need stars. Watching hours of directionless losers fighting other directionless losers is a chore.
As an extension of both points above most matches are utterly meaningless. The loser of most PPV matches gets their win back the next week
Every match is the same. Every match has 10 suicide dives, 20 superkicks and flips for the sake of flips.
Hour after hour of the same thing executed by people who are just endlessly spinning their wheels is a chore to get through.
You can catch me, Rih, in the new La Ferrar'
