Re: WWE don't have the talent to do 5 hour shows : Dave Meltzer

Do they have the potential in their talent to have 5 hours shows that could be interesting and full of great matches?

I would say an astounding yes.

However, do they have creative enough storylines and allow the majority of this talent to be able to showcase themselves in order for this to be possible?

Absolutely not.

Audiences don't have the patience to sit through 5 hours of WWE without getting antsy : Me, just now.

Skip the kickoff show? That's what I do at least and catch any matches with guys/girls I like the next day.

I don't give Dave Meltzer the benefit of the doubt on anything.

Njpw only have one main roster show a month (outside G1) so like UFC it's easier to process a 5 hour show. With WWE they have 5 hours of prime time weekly so 5 hour ppv is harder to sit through given you see same guys every week 52 weeks a year.

I personally thought rumble didn't drag but the last 3 Manias have. Also new Japan start with bunch of multi man tags..if wwe did that every show fans would get very annoyed

Vince McMahon needs to protect WWE from Dave Meltzer turning it into just another NJPW that caters to workratey wrestlers only.

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.
