The mystery of the WWE adult fans
After having some disagreement with some peoples over how great the cena vs reigns match was, i got me thinking. Do we really think that WWE cares what us adult fans think? Let's face it, they can do anything they want and will still going to be their supporting them. What other wrestling company, sports or tv show can say that? None really.
If somebody doesn'T like the Ring of honor product, will he continue to support it just so that he can complain? No. Same goes for New Japan and Impact or any other promotion with television exposure across the u.s and canada. If we don't like a certain product we just stop watching and go watch something else. But with WWE, is a different thing, we continue to watch even through we don't like what they are giving us because i think in a way, we're scared that if we stop watching WWE, we're going to be missing something or we're not going to be as cool a wrestling fans because we stop watching the big league of wrestling.
So WWE, in my mind don't cared as much about the adult wrestling fans especially the IWC because they know that no matter what they are going to throw at us, where still going to buy tickets for the tv tapings and PPV, we're still going to pay for the network, we're still going to buy merchandise so they're not scared to lose us, because they know that we need to watch the product just so we can complain about it afterward.
So when they push somebody like a roman reigns to be the face of that company, it's not for us that they are doing it, it's for the kids or what i love to called them to future fans of the WWE. They are trying to get kids hooked on wrestling just like they did with each and every one of us when we we're kids. When they book what a like to called the kids number 1 guy, John cena against the kids no.2 guy roman reigns and they have Reigns win over cena and then do the passing of the torch to reigns, it's not for us that they are doing that but for the kids who see their hero saying that it's o.k. to support reigns now, just like what they did with hogan and Macho man at wrestlemania 4 or what they did with hogan and warrior at mania 6 and so on and so forth. For kids who don't see the product like we do, this is a moment that they will never forget and will remember for a long time.
We need to remember that WWE is at heart a family oriented product, their first preoccupation is to make sure that they have the next generation of fans on board when we get to old for watching their product. They know damn well that they we don't like certain characters and we would like this other guy who been on the indy's and a better worker to get push instead, but in the end, it's not about us because no matter what, they have are money and will always have are money and we will always react to roman reigns no matter how we feel about him so why change anything right now.
