Fans should be listened to and their opinions taking into account, that is what just being a fan is. You give out your opinion and the writers can do what they want with your opinion. The series is slowly wrapping up after being delayed for months. But once the annual series finally got going it really picked up and really proved why I have brought back the series every year. As always though I would like to thank those who had a part in this post and took the time to make it happen. Check out this parts question:
Question: Should fans have a say in what they watch on TV or just be a fan?
KM Podcast: I feel like fans should have some say in what they see on television but to a degree, at the end of the day we can't please everyone because everyone is different and everyone has a different opinion, and that's no exaggeration. Think of it like say the phrase "A camel is a horse designed by committee."
Through the Ropes PW: "Letting fans book the shows is like letting the inmates run the asylum, Nothing good ever comes from it. It's why wrestling is in such a mess as it is, Look at Daniel Bryan, He never would have defeated Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista in the same night and won the World Heavyweight Title at WWE's biggest ever show on the 30th anniversary of WrestleMania had the fans not hijacked the shows and forced their opinions upon the company, Not a chance in Hell! A lot of people don't like Daniel Bryan, so they are having to suffer because of some fans who are not getting it their way."
Tom: I think fans should definitely have some input on what they watch because it is their attention that is the currency. I also thing networks and league executives need to be able to listen but not cater to every bit of feedback they receive.
Gabrielle: We should have a say on what we watch. We are consumers, we spend money. Having said that, I think it’s important to express our opinions respectfully and to be realistic. I could go on and on about what I want to see on RAW and SmackDown, which wrestlers I’d like to see more often on TV (*cough* Tye Dillinger *cough*) but at the end of the day, what can we do? It is what it is, but nothing stops us from voicing what we want to see.
Bryan: Fans should be listened to and their opinions taking into account, that is what just being a fan is. You give out your opinion and the writers can do what they want with your opinion
