Re: Who do you blame for a dead crowd?

House show crowds have always been good for the shows I've attended. TV tapings just have an awful vibe now. They probably did in the older days too, 4 hours of squash matches for a month of TV. But now there's so many long breaks in the action, the wrestlers don't really play to the crowd, all night there's stupid commercials and shit playing on the tron, it's all bright and shiny and sterile, it feels more like a TV show than a wrestling show.

Also, the group that was historically loudest at wrestling shows, adult males, are now a more "in the know" type that isn't gonna mark out for stuff, but they'll chant, dammit.

Vince since he finalizes everything. There's also the incompetance of the WWE as a whole. You have this roster of great talent and yet can't book a decent enough show?

Yep, it's absolutely baffling that the WWE has so much good talent in their roster; but yet they don't seem to have a clue on how to use the majority of them effectively (along with the fact that they can't write good shows using those wrestlers on a consistent basis).

Re: Who do you blame for a dead crowd?

Combination of various factors. Society in general prefers to record stuff on their cellphones than to be in the moment therefore it leads to them being less engaged.

the product is generally not that great within wwe so again people simply arnt so engaged and excited about it.

the audience that wwe appeals to isnt the types that make huge amounts of noise eg, it has a lot of parents in there that that are only attending because their son / daughter enjoys wrestling therefore they arnt going to be going mental for anyone or anything.

Overall, its clearly more of a wwe issue because the crowd was much more alive at AEW.

It's like being in an emotionally abusive relationship and I know exactly how it feels

Tell your boyfriend if he even exists that he shouldn't trust you, because I'm stealing his bitch.

Make better topics, and you wouldn't be so pissed about folks calling you out on your redundant threads
He made that poll thinking 'roster sucks' would win by a wide margin. Goddammit pal, you're not voting the way I want you to!

I blame the parents

Despite what you may have heard about so-called "smark marks" and the "IWC" some of us are actually here to help. All you have to do is ask.

Re: Who do you blame for a dead crowd?

inability to make stars! only alexa❤️, becky (and for her, not as much as pre-WM), roman, seth, and finn get serious crowd buzz. The Drifter should be doing more but they're stupid so book him as one of Shane's cronies.

number 1 fan of The Face Of WWE™ alexa

Suffering from incurable Bliss Fever ❤️❤️❤️

Alexa Bliss - global megastar, Tag team Champion, future first ballot hall of famer, 5x singles champ and soon to be undisputed Raw and SD! champ

(sigh) oh, Alexa, how magnificent you are. Don't you ever get tired of being so perfect?

Cell phone popularity, social media and their own participation.
