I'm just waiting for you to say we need to drain the swamp, build a wall and make wrestling great again

Re: Its not just WWE but wrestling in general is dead.

I wouldn't say dead, but it's extremely cool right now. Depending if AEW flops, it might very well be dead soon. Thank Vince, he bought up all the competition and became the only name in town, then put out a crap product for years.

"I will say it because I am trying to quell the burning in my heart--I hate Vince Russo. I despise Vince Russo. I want Vince Russo to die. If I could figure out a way to murder him without going to prison, I would consider it the greatest accomplishment of my life." - Jim Cornette

It's not dead because it's still profitable, but this is the absolute worst time to be a fan. Most wrestling fans are cynical as hell and annoying. It's going to get really obnoxious when the marks turn on AEW and start nitpicking everything they do to death or get mad at Omega or Rhodes for winning the world title.

It's great that it's being advertised, but nobody watches. WWE is getting record low viewership, Impact has been on life support for years, ROH is irrelevant, and while I hope AEW is successful, their roster outside of Jericho/Moxley/Omega/Cody is worrisome and they drew a pretty shitty number for their TNT special. There isn't much interest in modern wrestling, and the only thing really keeping the business alive is crazy TV deals.

You simply don't like it anymore, so just accept that instead of using overused shitty terms to generalize.
No one watches anymore, objectively it is dying and has slowly been dying since 2001, with the exception of a small boom in 2005 and 2006 because of Cena and Batista, the last two big stars the business has produced. Outside of those two years, the business has declined every year, and it's gotten very bad over the last few years. WWE has bled viewership at an insane rate, and TNA, which was once a respectable number 2 company that drew over a million viewers every week is barely relevant anymore. It's fine that you like the newer stuff, and their is a niche market for it, but it's a diminishing niche.

SD was #1 ranked show on the whole of cable last 5 weeks in a row so would be completely incorrect to say nobody is watching https://www.wrestlinginc.com/news/20...-fifth-659275/

Smackdown barely draws 2 million viewers a week. Nothing compared to what it used to. No one watches anymore. And it continues to get worse and worse over time

Re: Its not just WWE but wrestling in general is dead.

Can't we have Stone Cold next monday too?

He can go out, saying "what" and then drink beer and some guy comes out, and he stuns him and drink beer.

I've never seen such segment before. It's so unpredictable, just like WWE storylines today.

WWE wrestling is great.

I feel like we have this thread every week lol. It's not dead, it's just not "in".
