Default Why do you still Watch WWE?

The topic came up on the complain thread and i thought maybe this would be a nice subject for a thread.

I've seen a lot of fans on this board complain about WWE and the current direction they are going yet, they still watch WWE anyway. So i start asking myself, why would anyone continue watching something they don't like. It's not like WWE is the only game in town anymore. They are multiple choices for wrestling fans to choose from either on TV or with the multiple streaming services.

Personally, i stop watching NXT because i didn't like the product, i decided to stop watching the weekly shows even through their some guys that i like. Same goes For IMPACT. I didn't want to waste more time on a product that i wasn't enjoying. I still watch RAw and Smackdown mostly because i really like the product as a whole, while i don't always agree with some of the decisions they make. I'm still enjoy watching the product because, overall, i think they have the right characters at the right places and the storytelling for the most part is enjoyable. If i didn't enjoy watching those shows i would not waste time watching them since they're so many other quality shows playing at the same time that i could be watching instead of WWE wrestling.

So the question is, why do others fans that complain about WWE are still watching WWE if they hate it so much?

I fold laundry on Monday nights. Raw makes for good background noise. It's the kind of show that you can watch while doing something else that isn't too mind or labor intensive. When something good happens or you expect something good is going to happen you can divert your attention to the show and take it in. Otherwise I treat Raw and Smackdown as background noise. When I do get to "watch" Smackdown I am mostly on my phone reading something about as trivial as wrestling.

And that's kind of it. Good and great things occasionally occur on WWE programming. I prefer to be there when they happen. I also don't have the time or capacity to throw myself in to an entertainment product during the week where I have to pay full attention. My weekdays are pretty stressful. Raw and Smackdown are the perfect fluff entertainment in that respect. I also find that I don't find much that really interests me otherwise. The Cubs are back on tv so that will take me away. The NBA playoffs are not bad but I don't have a horse in the race and I find that I am satisfied by just watching the last two minutes of a game if it is close, otherwise I don't really care.

I couldn't agree more with what has been said so far. You may have certain favorite that you like to watch. But at the end of the day for me, Raw and Smackdown has become background noise while I'm doing other things. It's gotten to the point that I will wait an hour (or longer) so I can fast forward past the McMahon (Stephanie and Shane) talking segments, the pointless tag matches, and other filler. I've watched wrestling for over 30 years, and over the past year or two, I've become completely disinterested in the product. I've accepted it for what it is: the wrestling world is owned by the McMahons, and WrestleMania has become their personal playground. I respect what the performers do throughout the year - being on the road, putting their bodies on the line, etc. They earn the right to wrestle on the WM card. Yet, Stephanie, HHH and Shane decide they need to further their personal brands, and talent gets pushed to the pre-show. Personally, I hate politics, which is why I think I've completely soured on the product. I don't know what I'd do without my DVR, because there's no way I could sit through a 3 hour snooze fest.

Matt Hardy and Y2J. I don’t mind watching the “pushed” guys, but when in comes to interest, I always see their matches. Now, Balor, Sami and Owens are also matches that I “must see”, NXT has make me a fan of them. I have skippied a lot of women’s “tag” match, a lot of intranscedent matches and even some “main event”, if we don’t have Bryan or AJ in it. For me, a lot of storylines which are not the main focus are which I care and I stop everything to see it.

I watch for mostly nostalgia, it isn't a patch on what it used to be but still entertaining in parts. Plus it's good for making money from betting.

For some reason I am quite looking forward to this Greatest Royal Rumble tonight...

Watching tgrr live I got my answer. It's a lot of fun. You can feel the electricity. The noise is absolutely insane. Wrestling was and still is a lot of fun. Infinity war disappointed me but I'm sure TGRR won't and it's just the first match. That's why I watch wrestling.

It's awesome.

I record it via DVR. I enjoy seeing nostalgia and the segments that are good. So I skim through it stopping on things, matches or segments I want to see. Or if I here about a killer match I can watch that match. However I just fast forward alot of it because it's not like it was back in the day when you were hooked to watch all the way through
