I don't blame you there at all.
This is the same guy who's trying to claim that the fans are somehow to blame for damaging Lacey Evans's potential "talent" (even though crowds don't give a shit about her), that Baron Corbin is more over overall than a crowd favorite like Seth Rollins, and that one wrestler is somehow to blame for the low numbers
Crowds don't matter, tickets are expensive and only fanatics go.
500,000 people at most(assuming they get 10,000 each), that's being generous because they don't get 10,000 each show, they're tarped. it's more like 250,000-300,000 in attendance yearly
300,000 fanatics who pay extravagant amount of money and travel far for wrestling shows, do not represent the average wrestling fan at home, they do not represent the 1.5 million viewers who stopped watching since last year, they don't represent the remaining 2 million where weekly more and more tune out, hence why they're fanatics.
You do not prioritize 300,000 people over your 3.5 million viewers. using 300,000(or less because we both know he isn't cheered every week) people who cheer Seth Rollins or boo Lacey Evans as proof isn't smart.
It makes it look even worse, they're damaging the product.
Why should WWE cater to 300,000 fanatics over the 1.5 people they had at home who left?
Explain that to me.
Yep, if the WWE actually did deliver solid shows on a weekly basis, then that's honestly the best way for them to stop crowds from hijacking a show (even though that doesn't really happen that often nowadays).
They're not, they delivered Goldberg, everyone was excited, ratings improved, yet the niche fanatical contrarians in the crowd booed.
There's a clear statistical disconnect between the viewers at home and fanatics who buy the overpriced tickets.
There's no casuals at these shows, regular people aren't paying for expensive tickets, the crowds do not reflect the mass audience.
Cheers and Noise don't mean a cent, it's the amount of people watching, that's what matters.
Seth Rollins can get cheered by less than 300,000 people, but if 1.5 change the channel because of him, then he's bad for business.
