Don't think so. To quote the man, WWE is burying the WWE.

AEW isn't taking away any fans from the WWE in a true competitive manner, those who will watch AEW will mostly be WWE fans who left. If AEW did bury WWE, it would be because WWE dug their grave first.

In fact, the better AEW does the better it is for WWE. Pro wrestling making a comeback in popularity and real competition can only help WWE. The only way AEW can hurt WWE is to take away all of their talent; which, with them only needing to fill 2 hours there’s only so much talent AEW really needs.

Some of you AEW geeks are making the company look bad with stupid shit like this. Just be happy there is a mainstream alternative that now gives the fans, let alone the wrestlers and staff, another viable option. Sheesh, man.

The new normal.

Who even cares anymore? Based on the report I read it sounds like they are giving Rollins a Steve Austin DTA gimmick, which is cool as it's important to make your top face a badass, but also hard to buy as he's been a typical WWE pandering bland babyface for so long.

By the looks of it, they are actually starting to book their top babyfaces Rollins & Reigns like actual stars and not personality defunct bland geeks, which is at least a start. If they keep that up, and spread it about, numbers should go up. There's nothing more important than over babyfaces. They've fucked up so many, hopefully they have realised having them beaten down every show helps nobody.

I think Bruno was big enough, he looked 5'10 and had a great build for the time being.

Even if you don't rate Shield as one of the best WWE factions ever, to call them one of the most boring stables ever...you just...you have no credibility, champ.

Key point here. Yes, TV ratings across the board are dropping, but WWE's drop is far more precipitous, and that's why it's newsworthy.

I agree that this doesn't align with his personality in the past, but you have to give WWE credit for at least trying to pivot. We can't at once ask WWE to change and then give them shit when they try to. It's either one or the other.

Nah, he's right. The Shield is overrated as fuck and the fact that WWE is propping them up today like that, doesn't matter if it's for recency bias or not, shows how much of an objective failure the Shield faction was all things considered.

Boring? Well, their first run surely wasn't, at least.

The shield, to me, have always been boring. Never got the hype, never got invested in any of their stuff. I don't care for any of the 3 members together or apart.

I also question the sanity of those who did find them entertaining.

Re: All Raw TV Ratings, Buys, Attendance, Draw Talk Here - THE RATINGS WAR PART VI #LolRatings

People think that skanky stuff will sell because the skanky stuff sold in a totally different cultural era, the 1990s/early 2000s. In conjunction with that being a totally different time in American life, the internet was in the Stone Age then compared to what it is now. The "sex sells" stuff only works in the context of the other stuff, it cannot be the main draw, because anybody who wants to look at smut can look at anything they want more or less instantly wherever they go.

Also, Lacey is supposed to be the "Classy Southern Belle" character, acting like Sable or a Nitro Girl or having, I dunno, a butterscotch pudding match...
A, flies totally in the face of her character and B, of the sponsors would not stand for it.
