The issue isn't about not wanting WWE to succeed... it's that the IWC represent a section of fans who are unhappy with its reality... It stopped being a wrestling company in 1997. It became a Soap Opera SET in a wrestling company the moment Mr. McMahon became the villain.

For a while, it was geared towards more mature fans, but still a soap at its heart. When it transitioned back to being that, but geared at kids - entire swathes of fans, were alienated... who now had the internet could voice their opinions...and for a time WWE DID listen... feed the troll once and it comes back. That's been their biggest problem.

Do Days of Our Lives fans dictate which storylines or characters they want to see? No...most grasp the concept that they're not Hollywood writers nor do fans of Agents of SHIELD or any other major TV serial... they can fanfic... or write articles/reviews etc... but showrunners don't listen to fans in the same way WWE seems to or rather has done and now is doing the Eddie Murphy "La..la..la.la I am not listening..." thing.

Because WWE has that live component, the fans ARE part of the show so have more power ultimately. They can give "F*** You" chants that WWE have to ahem...Delete from their broadcasts etc.

That's not wanting WWE to succeed... but the reality is a lot of wrestling fans are either arrogant, dumb or deluded enough to believe they actually know better than the people who have kept the show going for 35 years.

Sure I HATE Roman as much as the next guy, not cos he's Vince's pick and I don't like it... I just don't see what he sees... but that's not to say he can't impress me as a heel down the line... I'm not MEANT to like him then. I remember seeing Cena debut with Angle and saying to my kid bro "he'll be the next Hogan..." but that doesn't make me cleverer than McMahon... just means the obvious is there. Reigns will make money either cos he's loved, or as the evil opposite of The Rock... someone so hated that fans will pay to see him eventually get his ass kicked... and Vince will make them wait.

Ironically those who are being painted as "wanting the WWE to fail" are inadvertently helping it succeed... WWE has to be mindful and they do give little moments, like the Hardyz at Mania... a lot of "smart fans" probably tolerated a lot on that show cos they got that moment...
