WWE just takes it easy now, because, there's no reason to not take it easy now due to more Monday Night Wars. Chris Brown has a point (even though I want to shove my foot up his ass), he has more relevancy a.k.a support than CM Punk could dream. It's a god-awful fact, but a fact nonetheless.
You mean the same UFC that was headed out of business when WWE was just getting to its peak? Or maybe you mean the UFC that got its biggest boost in sales because of the WWE guy? Or do you mean the same UFC that's just recently got off of the "Men's channel"? Pro-Wrestling isn't dead, nor is it dying. It's just not changing with the times, and that's where the problem lays. WWE's still relying on television and movies to keep them relevant, when really there's a lot more to it than that. When WWE starts utilizing more outlets, and getting back in touch with society, it'll boom again.
And really, it's kinda ironic how Chris Brown keeps mentioning this whole "always have supporters" thing. Because if memory serves, it wasn't that long ago when Chris Brown was an afterthought to Justin Beiber. Oh wait, he still is.
