Re: Raw draws poor attendance for major market show
I don't think it's Roman's fault, it's the fact that management don't give a shit about their fans and seemingly almost book to upset/offend them. Roman's booking may be part of that reason, but that still isn't on Roman. You can only do so much with what you're given, Roman is NOT a mic guy and look at what the Cena feud looked like, it's idiotic. Roman's similar to AJ Styles in the sense that if you book his mic work the right way it's perfectly serviceable but his main talent/skill is his in-ring work. You can't blame Roman if they give him ten times as much mic time as ring time, that's their fault for booking him to hide his strengths and expse his weaknesses, not his. I can fully understand people not paying to see the show, I cancelled my subscription before No Mercy and streamed the PPV because I'm sick of their terrible booking and subscribed to NJPW instead. I'll still pay attention to what WWE's doing but I won't watch any of their stuff on tv or pay for the network, I'll stream it illegally because they don't deserve my money/viewership ratings with the blatant animosity they feel towards the fanbase. Maybe after the Roman coronation they'll start seeing things a little less tunnel visioned and book the shows better, if they do I'll consider giving them my money again.
