There is 28 writers and a bunch of execs like Vince and Hunter that put the shows together. The show they are putting together is bland and the ratings are showing it. Gone are the days 'where anything can happen'

Also, Somewhere along the line Vince forgot how to promote.

WWF buying out WCW was the worst thing to happen to the wrestling world, it's been steadily declining ever since

100% nailed it, i havent watched wrestling for about 10 years but it's not hard to figure out what went wrong.

Vince didnt forget how to promote, he just doesnt have to promote any more, the pressure isnt on to deliver the way it was 15 years ago.
WWE have cornered the market and the product has suffered from a lack of competition pushing it to be inovative.

The best thing for wrestling would be an upstart company being backed by millions of dollars delivering a quality product to get a competitive market going again
I've got no doubt my son's going to go through his phase of loving wrestling in about 3-4 years time and i'd love to be sitting there watching a good product with him when it happens

So I recently matched my first wrestling for a couple of years. Wrestlemania was OK, womens title match was surprisingly good. I looked up Zayn/Nakamura from the NXT Takeover, it was better than anything I've seen for ages. I felt like a kid watching wrestling again, the striking was stiff and believable and the crowd was awesome. I recommend looking this match up.

I enjoy the Network. Good value to watch the older stuff and mainly the women's division currently is really good.

Agree - I enjoy the early-mid 90's era and the vault containing all previous PPV's is excellent value, plus all the new PPV's can be streamed live or replayed on demand.

WWE 2K17 is out 11/10/16 if anyone plays the games
