Well, Mr. Barrios, if you have 650 million followers on social networks, and 3 million viewers on Monday night, and only 1.3 million paying subscribers on your cheap Network, meaning not even half of your ever dropping viewership (1/3, subtracting international subs), and only a pityful fraction of social network followers translates into Network buys, then maybe YOU don't understand something.

And that certain something MIGHT be that 648.7 million of these followers decide you have a shitty product not worth paying for, and 647 million decide it's not even worth watching for free on monday.

Furthermore, Mr. Barrios, you might want to draw the conclusion that 80% international views means that people who want to watch recent episodes of your TV overseas, they can't do so because of the shitty TV deals you make.

I'm reading:

Our subscriber numbers didn't increase after the free WM stunt, our ratings stink, we try to cover that up with social networks numbers, our investors don't understand how they matter, and we try to placate them by painting a rosy horizon with all the new and returning talent, even though the returnees haven't proven to be draws in years, and we don't do shit to portray the debutants as important.
So many don't get it. They try hiding what pitiful business they're doing for having a full monopoly on wrestling. The lengths them and the fanboys go to to try and prove this Roman Reigns era and its philosophies are working is ridiculous.

Just look at the fucking crowds. They couldn't be more uninterested in the show these days. That alone should tell you things.

WWE are now making over a $1 million a week in pure profit that's very impressive and with the most successful pro-wrestling show in history's number yet to be reported to Wall-Street.

Pro-wrestling is a tiny niche form of entertainment. Not sure how anyone can say WWE hold a monopoly on the industry when huge multinationals like Panda, Sinclair and MGM television all broadcast similar shows on US tv and Station Casinos run a highly successful business using WWEs own blueprints.

Same old, same old.

Product sucks, but they're still making money because WWE fans don't care if the product sucks, they'll support it regardless.

No, someone who is close enough to the real numbers to know that they are not that significant, and who is in a position to question Vinnie about it, and who is not some marky forum twerp trying to convince himself and others that YouTube clicks are as good as USA money, to put Roman over.
Point taken. But I was only saying that because social media is so big today it's not so hard to believe why WWE does it.

That WM32 traditional PPV buy rate is nuts!!!

But yeah, WWE should totally listen to the opinions of the jaded smark fanbase who don't spend a dime on WWE per year!
You know, the REAL fans of professional wrestling. :lol
