Who didn't know that Sami Zayne was going to win that match last night? Who right now is more important? Who is the bigger star? Who means more? So what if Braun Strowman was 15 minutes late to a show? That is what fines are for? Heck pull him off a week of house shows. Sami Zayne has no business being in MITB. Is he going to win? No of course not. We all know Drew is going to win the match but it is a better match with Braun Strowman in it. Also Nikki Cross winning last night. Why did Nikki Cross win last night? Why was she even in the match to begin with? I love Nikki Cross but we all know she will be back off TV for 3 months after that. You don't do things like that if they aren't leading somewhere. The Revival,so what if they want to leave now? It would be possible to maybe change their mind so they might resign later. No they choose to humiliate them every second until it is time for them to leave killing any chance of that happening.
You do realize that Raw was #1-3 on cable this past Monday right?
More people watched a taped Raw than the live NHL conference final, double nearly. Are you saying no channel will offer the NHL a tv deal when their contract is up?
Long term Zayn is much better option than McIntyre or Strowman as he is better worker, talker and plays a babyface much better than both. Zayn right now is light years a more interesting character than Strowman or McIntyre
WWE is the tallest midget there.
Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Vanderpump Rules, TI & Tiny, Teen Mom, NHL, Street Outlaws, and American Dad.
That's the rest of the list. I've only ever heard of American Dad and the NHL. The rest is irrelevant trash. Cable is dying, so being at the top of that pitiful heap is not enough, and WWE and its partners know that.
Irrelevant. Raw was #1-3 on cable Monday night for a taped show on strongest night of the week and it's off season for WWE now too.
A year later and the IWC still can't get their head around why NBC and Fox offered the $1 billion each. It's because their programming is #1-3 every Monday and Tuesday on cable most weeks of the year.
Remember when Raw would pull a 5 and Nitro would pull a 4.5? My how times have changed.
I only watch Raw when I'm traveling for business, but 3 hours is a long freaking time for any TV show. Especially having to wait for the main event which goes on at 11:30ish. I honestly think the biggest problem with Raw is that it's 3 hours long and its main audience (people in EST and CST) have to be up so late for the main event.
Also, for the OP: WWE is not "in trouble." Not yet, at least.
20+ years ago when Bill fucking Clinton was President and before 9/11 happened. Wrestling fans need to stop living 20 years in the past when there was less channels, no Youtube, no Hulu, no DVR, no live streaming, no smartphones and there is no boom period in pro wrestling since. Alta-vista was the prominent internet search engine during period you referenced.
WCW lost $60+ million in 2001 alone, WWE had to move Wrestlemania back to smaller venues in 2004 when their popularity collapsed and that's 15 years ago now.
One time the WWWF could sell out MSG every 2 weeks in the late 60s/70s, an achievement not possible during Monday night War yet there are no Bruno fans online gloating weekly
