Why do you watch WWE right now?

I'm genuinely curious? I just can't watch it anymore, it's too hokey, it's just too dumb. I can't turn my brain off to their bullshit, I am too smart for this company, and I'm not even fucking smart. I literally cannot watch it, but reading about all this 2/3 falls shit on Raw makes me tear my hair out. People standing on the apron during an EXTREME RULES match while their partner takes an ass kicking, the elimination rule with Seth/Becky and Andrade/Zelina, what if Andrade would've beaten Seth? Would it be Andrade vs. Becky? Oh, they don't you to think about that, because they think you are a retard. How can you watch this without feeling genuinely insulted that they value your intelligence so lowly? They dedicated an entire week to the "superstar shake-up" it was hyped heavily, yet Samoa Joe, Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross, 2 of whom were literally just fucking drafted to SmackDown in the aforementioned heavily hyped superstar shake-up, are wrestling for the SmackDown world title!!

Not looking for thread of "I don't watch it" if you don't then ignore the thread, I want people who watch the show every week to tell me why. I'm not chastising you, I envy you, HOW can you watch this? How can you sit through this Shane McMahon, Baron Corbin, Lacey Evans, 'Secky', shit every week, do you not think to yourself when you're watching it "GOD this shit is lame"? I just don't know how anybody in the world could admit to being a WWE fan in public these days, not even just adults, kids too. It's the most uncool thing in the world.

The worst thing about it too, they have a fucking amazingly talented roster, who they misuse to push the likes of Shane McMahon and Baron fucking Corbin in main events. Who wants to see Asuka when we can get Lacey Evans am I right, pal?!

Oh and Brock is The Strawberry Shortcake champion again.



Seeing legit fucking beast Brock Lesnar hold a bright red toy with a giant W on the front gets me every time. The former UFC World Heavyweight Champion having to hold that trash, god I know they pay him well but he must fucking cringe when he has to hold that thing.

It gets dumber and lamer every single week. Anyway, what are you getting out of it? I refuse to believe there is ANYBODY in the world who watches all 3 hours of Raw and 2 hours of SD live every week.

Re: Why do you watch WWE right now?

I watch it simply because I'm a wrestling fan and that is what is available to me right now.

I used to watch every single minute of every single episode when I was growing up. I absolutely LOVED the product. Now I'm mostly just disappointed with it and I watch about half of each show depending on what else is on TV on Monday/Tuesday nights.




SHE WEARS STRENGTH AND DARKNESS EQUALLY WELL
THAT GIRL HAS ALWAYS BEEN HALF GODDESS HALF HELL

I watch it for the incredible writing and acting. Did I mention that I'm clinically insane.

Fair enough. Thanks for the honest answer. I was watching out of habit essentially for a while.

Same man, I absolutely LOVED WWF/WWE as a kid, and I'll still go back to watch old stuff on occasion too. Seeing what it has become is just sad.

I watch clips on YouTube mostly out of habitit and it is getting less and less. Extreme rules overall sounds good but with other great wrestling out there I probably won't watch it for a while.

Re: Why do you watch WWE right now?

Cause when it's good it's good. Like the no holds barred tonight was decent,it had no right to be but it was decent. The lms was a fun hoss battle and I hate lmses. The sight of strowman disappearing in to the void needs to be giffed. I also hate 3 way tags but the one at ER was fantastic and everyone looked great. Cesaro vs black was good physical fun.

But then you have the terrible. Aj vs ricochet part 3 was absolutely garbage because it had way too much interference it was like Suzuki gun at its worst, the raw tag title was a heatless boring rematch. The smack women's sucked, Kofi Joe was basically a house show match, the main event was trash besides one spot.

And the biggest problem was Brock winning. Not necessarily because he won cause he ended a nothing reign but because it's back to the start again like nothing was learned.

So short answer when it's good it's good.

Re: Why do you watch WWE right now?

I mostly just hate watch it so I can make fun of it with you guys and my friends in RL who watch.

Let's be real, the forums are much more exciting when the product is shit lol

I watch clips of Mandy, Lacey and Charlotte on YouTube.

That's it.

Re: Why do you watch WWE right now?

The NXT brands. Simply put they are (currently) more in tune with modern wrestling culture. Simple format, clear in ring storytelling, great technique and crowd interaction.

The rest of WWE is for anti-smark, Honey Boo Boo types living in the 90's.
