Re: 8/12 RAW Discussion Thread: Rollins Slayed The Beast
Honestly, you can tell the WWE staff is over worked. Vince will never compromise, he knows just like Walmart knows one of the keys to success is persistence.
They are just PHONING IT IN because they are tired and restless.
Same old matches. Boring rhetoric in the story lines.
I'm sorry, but if you paid attention to ratings like I have for the past 30 years you would know the only reason women's wrestling gets any spike in viewership at anytime that warrants them main eventing the show. The only spike in viewership is middle aged men who are bored and strapped down by either their job or their wife so they watch it for a little entertainment to stimulate their sexual fantasies and dreams. They do not buy merchandise, they do not attend events, this is the same stigma that was attached to TNA's ratings during their spike tv run. AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe would get a 1.02, then it is followed by Mickie James vs. Angelina Love 1.19, HUGE rating jump. Not really. But warranted enough to be noticed by advertisers.
The women's matches always had a little ratings spike, that never proved focusing the ENTIRE Show around the women was the way to go. Somehow Vince McMahon lost the narrative on this and somehow thinks these people are a substantial enough of the fan base to build the show and product around them. As he may of noticed he has failed his objective and ratings have plummeted, house show attendance is doing terrible. All because of this catastrophic business failure Vince has made.
It might be too late with political and financial pressure from both the cable companies and his stock owners to keep him on track with this failing left wing agenda mediated storylines and portrayal of professional wrestling.
