Ive been seeing alot lately how the current crop of sports entertainers are pissed because of the returns of the Rock, Lesnar etc.
I find this ironic because i feel it is the return of these guys that is keeping alot of them in their job with WWE. Throughout the PG era WWE has suffered in regards to revenue, almost being crippled at one stage when the company share price was around $7. Crowds of 15000 are now crowds of 1500 - 3000, budget cuts are rampant & viewing figures are in the toilet. Oh, and the Network is a monumental flop.
The only thing that seems to garner interest is seeing the heroes of years gone by come back and ignite a spark in the old fans who remember the impact they had when this business was an integral part of our lives. Who the fuck wants to tune in and watch the Uso's, Bo whatever his fucking name is or Kofi???
The current product is atrocious, if Vince wants to give Rock & Lesnar the strap on a PT basis because it benefits the company then the little bitch bottom - mid carders should accept it or go to whatever indie promotion they can find for $50 a match. And if the more experienced guys on the roster object, they need to realise that fans arent exactly tuning in to see them either.
I love this fucking post...I've been trying to say this for a while but you worded it so perfectly.
