Well I only ever get to see PPV's and I always know what happens because I read the spoilers but I don't find it predictable. Besides I watched Heat yesterday (over at my Nan's who has sky) and I didn't find that predictable. Plus it has always been obvious that it was fake

um yeah well I told every body that Brock was gonna land on his face and wrestlemania because I saw that coming a mile away :rolleyes: ok I agree the storylines are predictable, they always have been and yeah you can tell all the signiture moves will be performed but wrestling in the noughties is all about athleticism. Who cares if Jeff does the Swanton drop every match it looks pretty impressive every time.

General WWE thread I would have thought.
Nevermind. While I'm here.
I only see Raw and occasionally PPV's on video months later.
It's predictable in the fact you basically know all the moves that happen in a match.
The thing that shits me is why do they bother have World Title matches on RAW & Smackdown. The title never changes hands except on a PPV. There have been around 6 occasions that it's change on Raw and I can only think of one on Smackdown.

It's all to predictable now and the only reason i bother watching is for the Michaels segments on Raw and Angle segments on Smackdown.
I think it's halfly down to the fact that the WWE try to use the weekly shows to promote the upcoming PPV as much as they can and it has an adverse effect on the actual quality of the programming. If they put their attention into making Raw and Smackdown exciting maybe the buy rate will go up for the PPVs without having to spend every minute of TV time setting up a feud or promoting a match.
There are also way too many wrestlers which means the creative team probably can't spend as much time as they'd like on each seperate character.
The roster split isn't helping either, before there were 8 shows in between each PPV, now there's only 4. That can lead to rushed programming and short feuds which don't do the company alot of good.
Overall the WWE is very poor at the moment and it's going to take something of DX or Austin heights to turn it around.

Oh yeah and this should be in General WWE.

It's predictable because Vince wants it that way. Because when Wrestling becomes popular again, having it suck now will make the future product seem that much better

People felt compelled to watch in the late nineties because of the ratings war. What WWE needs is some competition. That's why their ratings are in the shitter. They've been down ever since Turner's Shit Circus went out of business. The roster split doesn't help because no one takes it seriously. When the ratings went down, the writers panicked and just started fucking up more and more. Predictability isn't the problem here. Quality is. Besides, when you have some crazy swerve or turn every other week, that gets predictable.

I guess this is kind of a rant, So i'll leave it here for now.

I find that i can sit and predict who will win each and every match, And how they will win it. I can predict how the match will turn, And what twists will come.

However, Things such as Sable's return suprise me. Honestly, How many of you saw that coming?

I guess it's like someone said. Without competition, You dont need to over-extend yourself. You can put on a half-ass show, And people will still watch as there is no alternative.
