There is nothing that needs to come back.

That’s one of the many problems with the current product for me. There’s this constant need to go back to the past and bring back the old talents and reuse old storylines and angles, some of which only really worked because they were relevant to the times.

The entire structure and the way the WWE works is a complete mess and is in severe need of an overhaul! They don’t even seem to understand their own product anymore which is one of the most worrying things to me. What’s the most frustrating thing though is that the talent and the money is there but they just don’t seem to care enough or want to try new things and really place faith in their current roster.

Look at the recent drop in ratings and attendance figures. You’d think that would scare them a bit to the point where they say “shit we have to change up or we’re in trouble!” But what do they do instead though? They roll out the fucking Undertaker, Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair.

Yeah there will be a pop or two tonight but what happens the following week when it’s back to boring old Rollins, Lynch, Kofi and the rest of the crap that’s going on right now?

There’s no long term planning!

At present Vince and the WWE are creatively bankrupt and they severely lack the creativity and vision required to take the company forward in a new and exciting way and bring about a new era.

Re: WWE MSG Ticket Sales Are Reportedly "Exceedingly Disappointing"

So I went to those dates in ticket master the cheapest ticket (seems with fees) is $135. Thats just me ok so if I am taking say a family and say 3 (2 kids) $405 f'n dollars for a crap show. I am sorry, but the WWE needs to improve their product and lower the prices. Those prices hurt thats not including food and parking and other little things. You can easily spend easily for 3 $500+. To also mention the product is pure trash the WWE can't expect people to keep spending mad money like its nothing for a crap show.

Those are the worst seats too. For me to bring my wife and kid, when you include souvenirs, food and drink, I'm looking at $600+ to sit in the worst seats in the house.

The obstructed view and nosebleed crapola seats are going for 70 bucks! A trio of poor seats but no outrageously bad seats is easily a 500+ dollar night for a family, for a sibling and two other siblings, etc. Its an expensive enough proposition to do it yourself, but if you want to bring multiple people for a family night or birthday or some other celebration, you are getting...

Taken to the cleaners!

:

Edit: Just saying it to say it, AEW could sell it out in a week, but they don't want to run it, because unless you're some "Bigger than Jesus" 21st century equivalent to the 20th Century Beatles, you LOSE MONEY running the garden. They lost money in the Attitude Era and Ruthless Aggression Era running MSG sometimes, when it was much CHEAPER to do an event there. For them to do events there in the Worst Metrics Ever Era, aka "Tarpamania," means WWE is losing its fucking ass this September at Madison Square Garden.

Re: WWE MSG Ticket Sales Are Reportedly "Exceedingly Disappointing"

I personally always enjoyed MSG seats over Barclays. But I've only been to MSG for house shows without packed crowd so it was easier to get around. Did get free tickets to rumble 2000 that were very up close and it was great.

I would go to both shows if they lowered prices, but the main reason MSG is no longer the preferred location for artists and entertainers is because they charge too much. Same with Hammerstein for music compared to other venues.

I wonder if this was the 'deal' WWE came up with to get RoH kicked to the curb.

Thats the problem the prices are insane high. I can't even stand watching it on T.V. let alone a live show. You can bet that AEW is going to be dominating I saw a video showing their pricing and its super cheap compared to the WWE. Also as you mentioned the worse seats thats to much man I personally have to work hard for my hard earned money.

Re: WWE MSG Ticket Sales Are Reportedly "Exceedingly Disappointing"

Attending Raw has to be a mind-numbing experience these days. There are so many goddamn commercials, promotional videos for the Network and the Shop and all the other nonsense...god, I can't even imagine it. I haven't been to a WWE show since the go-home Raw before WrestleMania XXX, and even that was a slog.
