If NXT is so good, why it doesn't draw more fans? Stop calling yourselves 'the wrestling fans', you are just a part of the fanbase, we are more fans and we don't fucking like and we don't care about your tastes.
I can't even take you seriously when you claim stuff like this


LOL


its just funny the WWE is doing it your way and the ratings are in the tank

You really dont think if the main roster was more like NXT the ratings wouldn't go up?

Re: People need to stop blaming the PG era for poor ratings, and storylines etc

Hadnt we all accepted that the problems run much deeper than a PG rating by now? I thought so.


Not saying I wouldnt mind a bit more edgy content, but it'd take a hell of a lot more than some blood and swearing to rescue the modern WWE train wreck. Besides, if you look at the AE, there was more to it than just sexuality or profanity, the entire production -the sets, the video packages, the names of the shows, the music etc etc, it was all designed to make the shows seem dark, grungy and gritty. Those are touches that have a profound effect and yet have nothing to do with an age rating.

LOL at claiming NXT is garbage.

You kill all your credibly. and yes if the main roster was a booked like NXT, where they book sensibly , and make everyone matter, and let everyone cut their own promos and dont over script everyone, the main roster would be a million times better.

Also its cute you put this reply in your sig, you know it you just embarrass yourself by thinking its wrong lol

There is a reason why when people are in NXT they are written way better than when they come up to the main roster and get ruined.

Are you really going to deny the main roster ruins all the NXT call ups?

Re: People need to stop blaming the PG era for poor ratings, and storylines etc

@birthday_massacre

You know? I've talked about this topic with a friend long before you post it.
And I'll be honest: I'm with now.

Why?
Outside WWE, there are a few enterprises who manage PG Content. In addition, to create a storyline, there are a lot of keys to developing an excellent product: acknowledgment of the target audience, the way to send a message for children, well use of vocabulary, context, budget, etc.
Examples: CMLL, ROH (They censored chants like "Shut the fuck up" or wrestlers flipping-off the bird), NJPW, AJPW, Pizza Party Wrestling, etc.

Marks believe No Violence, no Entertaining. That's not true, though. IMO, I can tell a lot of moments on PG Era what I've enjoyed (Not ranked).

1. -Ric Flair's Retirement: His last match versus Shawn Michaels was enjoyable. It had drama and interesting and was memorable.
2. -Yes! Movement: Daniel Bryan had connected with WWE Universe because of his technique and charisma, and it was taken to create a great storyline wrapping up on WrestleMania.
3. -MVP's Burying: How dramatic watching MVP losing week after week from octuber until breaking up with his streak on February with a little help of Triple H.
4. -Randy Orton VS Triple H on WrestleMania 25: It was interesting how Trips invaded Orton's Home. And that moment when trips threw out Orton against the windows.
5. -CM Punk and Daniel Bryan starting Royal Rumble: There was chemical between both gladiators and they showed an interesting conflict to start RR.
6. -CM Punk's reign.
7. -Second Brock Lesnar's Universal Champion Horror Reign: TBH, Brock Lesnar is driving me bored, but opponents like AJ Style, Daniel Bryan and Finn Balor were a little bit more complicated.
8. -Jeff Hardy Winning WHC and rivalry with CM Punk.
9. -R-Truth and Little Jimmy: It was worse than end up being funny.
10. -AJ Lee's reign: She's is so crazy.
11. -Randy Orton burning down Wyatt's Compound.
12. -Firefly Funhouse.

So, is PG guilty of WWE Decadence? No, it doesn't. So, what... or should I call: who's guilty? You already know the answer: Vincent Kennedy McMahon. Why?
Have you ever heard about the most elder, the wisest? Well, that's not true. If fact when people get older, accuracy gets worse. This is what going on with Vince. For a decade, he wasn't able to go beyond his comfort zone. I ain't saying he leaves it, but increase it. How? Learning, learning, learning. And the learning process never ends.

Treatment: He has three options...
Get focusing on XFL business;
open his mind to new cultures and ways to think;
or Give in control Triple H.
Now I'm thinking of: Option four... all the previous ones.

Re: People need to stop blaming the PG era for poor ratings, and storylines etc

if a movie is shit does adding swearing, sex and blood make it a good movie? no.......at most it makes more "edgy" but if the core element of the movie (the storytelling) is shite then its still a shite film.

if wwe suddenly reintroduced those elements, the most its going to do is add novelty, the product isnt going to suddenly improve because its really not that easy nor simple. Its a much bigger problem.

if anything the PG rating at least helped to filter out those awkward sexual storylines that seemed to plague wwe in the early to mid 2000s.

This is the problem with you guys, it’s not about PG, the talent or Vince though Vince is clueless. Wrestling is just not that popular get over it. 50 cent was the best rapper back in 2005 but if he came out with another dope album today no one would care. It’s called moving with the times. People like something else, a lot of people out grew wrestling and with so many shows to chose from, a lot of people are just not into wrestling. Aew won’t make a difference either.

Honestly I agree with soul rex, if wwe did everything like nxt, ratings will be worse than it is now. Nxt is run like a Indy fed and that doesn’t sell. Also as good as nxt is, it is losing wwe a lot of money. So as much as it appeals to the smarks, it won’t go over with the casual fans.
