Yup, GoT was the first thing I thought about too. Look at the MCU, 20 movies over the course of 10 year with interconnecting stories. The short attention span excuse is just that, an excuse for shitty storytelling. Give people a compelling, intriguing, believable story and they will eat it up regardless of how long the story takes to develop.But the same people watch Game Of Thrones etc. with much longer story arc with a bigger esamble then a wwe has ever had, It also force you to remember what happened a few mounth ago.
I suppose bust of them also read at least a book or two per year.
It require more attention or patience to watch a standard police movie than Wrestling as far as storyline goes. Unless it´s at least semi good.
