Question 6: Now most casual don't know or don't care to know about the Indies, because of the major companies. Would you agree with this logic or not.
Freddy: I’d say there are more “sports entertainment” fans than actual wrestling fans out there….. Most Indy promotions don’t advertise well at all (at least in NY)!!! They are hard to find….. I enjoy the smaller promotions and Indies. Whether it’s the economy or the saturation of wrestling on TV, or alternative entertainment options, people don’t seem willing to part with their hard earned cash for Indy wrestling.
it... Definitely agree. That's why TV is so important in the equation. Again if the product is entertaining, and "casual" fans can find it... Definitely agree. That's why TV is so important in the equation. Again if the product is entertaining, and "casual" fans can find it...Bryan: Yeah unfortunately, but with the rise of NXT I think more people may look to the Indies now with the influx of top tier Indy talent in the NXT, Such as Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, and Samoa Joe.
Christelle: I didn 't understand the question? If it's that the majors are seemingly the only companies that get attention then yes I agree. But the independents are still good also.
Kayla: Without people supporting the indies, the majors wouldn't have people like Punk, Rollins, Ambrose, Joe, or any of these other greats.
YourWrestlingWorld: I would agree I think a lot of people don't care about the indies unless you put a wwe/tna so called name on the card, a lot of fans are not bothered about wrestler a VS wrestler b that they have never seen before.
Bill: Definitely agree. That's why TV is so important in the equation. Again if the product is entertaining, and "casual" fans can find it on TV, you're gold. And I believe TV and by TV I mean "local TV" is still the gateway to the casual fan, then possibly YouTube. As you're casual fans will not necessarily be scouring the internet to find NJPW or ROH material, let alone the Indies out there.
