Sharing my thoughts, opinion, and historical facts on everything WWE both past and present
Back to Blog
For the longest time I have been thinking about the reason I don't normally watch WWE programming as much I have in the past. I've been trying to figure out the reason why I don't and this actually an article I have tried to write before, but never got to doing it. Anyone wondering what exactly I am talking about we look to Monday Night's and the former live tweeting I once did while watching Raw. It could have been tied to me actually starting to work but most days I was home already when the show was on and just chose not to watch it. I know that I have come off as a huge fan and someone who needs to watch it every week because of the site.
However, I think it could be a mixture of being tired about seeing nothing but lackluster booking and character development. It seems like the WWE can't hit the right bar when it comes to feuds and fan interest anymore. I know that a lot of people will point to Roman Reigns, but I don't think that Roman is to blame and to give him all of it would be unfair. Especially when if you look to Smackdown Live and see how "well" they have booked the Shinsuke Nakamura vs AJ Styles feud.
I know that it's hard to book in the modern era to in part to how entitled and "smart" fans are to everything that is going on. The one thing that I would disagree with though is that in wrestling you never run out of stories to tell because in wrestling the talent changes, but the point doesn't. All and all though I think the point I am making is I finally took my own advice and stopped watching because I wasn't enjoying the lackluster nature of what I was seeing anymore. Overall though do I still watch, sometimes and it doesn't take long for me to question why I am after seeing what I am watching. I will point out one thing to help me as an example and that is the hard to follow feud between Sami Zayn & Lashley which has had segments that make the Bayley: This is Your Life segment seem like gold. I know you might disagree but this feud has been terrible & a perfect example of why I don't watch as much anymore.
