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

Quote:
No reason these shows should go over 4 hours unless it's WM.

They're not NJPW, they don't have the talent that New Japan has to go 5 and they're trying to limit themselves to 4 hours.

New Japan can go 5 because they have those awesome main events, these guys don't.

3 hours optimum and you can go 4 for a Royal Rumble. I wouldn't go 4 for a regular PPV. They're so insistent on these long shows that by the end of the show people are tired, they're not reacting to the big matches the way they should, it makes for a show that drags. There's so many problems with long shows and yet they keep doing it.

There's no sign of any change, shows are going longer rather than shorter.

After every one of these shows, the big thing after these shows is 'god that show was long'.

The other thing is that they do that 2 and half hour show on Saturday night which is always great and everyone says it's great. One of the reasons everyone says it's great is when you're ready for the say to end - it ends. 2 and half hrs in and you get 5 great matches, maybe 4. You're satisfied, you're happy and then the next day you're exhausted. Wrestling isn't meant to exhaust you, it's meant to entertain you.

Even if they did. WWE does NOT need to be doing 5 hour shows except for maybe Wrestlemania and even then..

Fans who complained about too many PPVs are to blame for the shows being too long. WWE added an extra hour to all their shows when they cut the brand exclusive PPVs.

Why is every opinion of Dave Meltzer thread worthy??

Seriously, can there just be a Dave Meltzer thread that all his "journalism" can be put in?

Dave is a respected journalist and wrestling personality these days

I agree with him on the long shows, they're probably better off going back to brand PPVs.

There's so many dead spots on shows because everyone needs a match.

Doesn't make him wrong about WWE's long ass dragging shows though. I just watched the 2 fucking hour Kickoff show and I have to watch the Rumble tomorrow because fuck that.

Dave is wrong, they sure do have the talent to do 5-hour shows. And also Dave, speak for yourself. When I pay $1,500 for tickets I'll take the longest show that I can get as well as my commemorative chairs, thank you very much!

Respected is a subjective term though. I don't respect him. I think he makes a bunch of stuff up for clicks and subscriptions.

Of course he gets things right sometimes, and other times he misses the mark completely. But he always has his "plans change" safety net to fall back on.

I was questioning why every single opinion he has needs to be turned into its own thread.

2 hour kickoff shows are entirely unnecessary!! Especially when so much time is taken up by the video packages that they show before the matches anyway!
