I only watch clips of Mandy, Lacey, Toni and Charlotte on YouTube.
Everything else is dire shit.

This is a very good point. There is definitely a contingent of posters who obsess way too much about wrestling, to the point where they’ve posted 100,000 miserable comments over-analysing and over-thinking every aspect. They don’t seem happy at all. When I took a break from this forum, and from reading reports and rumours online, I started to enjoy the shows a bit more.I think some of you need to take a break from all the aspects of wrestling except watching it itself -- no Facebook wrestling groups, no forums, no dirt sheets, no social media. Do that and you might actually enjoy just watching the product instead of letting it consume you on a daily basis.
Notice the posters here who are most angry are the ones who are here posting every day. They're just making themselves more miserable.
I don't brother.The title pretty much speaks for itself.
I gave up watching on the WWE at long last from 'Mania onwards. I tuned into the Saudi show for Goldberg/Taker only 'cause name value, and uhh...we all know how that went.
Now, aside from the odd YouTube clip of Wyatt because I'm genuinely interested in that character (yet have zero faith in WWE to actually not feck it up, but I hope I'm wrong), I haven't watched any WWE at all. Judging from the reception I sometimes see when scrolling through the main forum news feed, I pretty much made the right decision.
Honestly, I've actually watched quite a bit of wrestling the last few months. Whether it's been AEW, getting into the background from wrestlers from there, watching lucha libre matches on YouTube, MLW, NWA, etc. and I've loved it. Hell, I've had WAY more enjoyment from that than I've had watching WWE since I began watching it again in 2016 (I had taken a break from my lifelong days of watching back in 2012, and returned at the Rumble '16). Watching all that made me excited and proud to be a fan, really - especially this AEW stuff.
I doubt I'll be back with WWE. I hope I'm actually wrong, and will welcome folk poking fun at me if/when I do, but I hope it turns into a better product. For all its fault, it's a company I grew up with, featuring some of my all time favourite moments, but man - everything about it today literally sucks, and I don't see that changing. It's that bad, and let's face it - you pretty much know it yourself.
However, I see folk laughing, complaining about EVERYTHING, yet they seem to continue to watch each and every week. I don't get that. I really don't. I get that folk might have favourites, but I don't get that either. It's like when I watch another drama show. I might like the character, but if the show and the action is that bad, I'm not gonna get invested in them anymore. That's how I feel. WWE literally is WOAT, and has been for quite a while now. Borins :bosque.
My advice there is to do what I've done, and just give up, and search for something better...BUT I want to know why you may continue to watch on a regular basis, and get some interesting opinions/thoughts. Let's go.
That’s been their biggest (of many) problems. The fact that WrestleMania 31, 32, 33, and 34 had Main events that a lot of fans did not want to see - and they booked them anyway - demonstrates how tone def they became.Gave up completely the moment they shoehorned Charlotte Flair into the Mania match.
Not being able to produce anything of quality is reason enough not to watch.
But torpedoing something people actually want to see purely because it's not what the company wanted is something else entirely.
It proved once and for all that WWE doesn't have respect for the product, doesn't have respect for the fans, and doesn't have respect for itself.
