Which is all the more reason they should give it to people that have kept the crowd happy. John Cena's early years as champion was nothing but comedy. The Rock's whole stick was making fun of his opponents and getting a laugh from the crowd. Comedy has a place in wrestling even at the top of the card. You have a beloved team that has done everything they possibly could as a team, minus repeatedly winning the belts in an endless, bland cycle. They draw. I agree with you that as a whole wrestling just hasn't featured black people in major ways since it began. Which is the reason why a discussion like this is happening. WWE is supposed to be a publicly traded company that is more about its own image than it was 27 years ago, correct? Race relations has been and still continues to be a hot topic in the United States. There are several black wrestlers on the roster today more deserving of that opportunity compared to champions in the last 27 years. No data on that subject. Not something we can examine. This is like asking how many Indians do we see in the American audience. Just because the average fan looks Caucasian on TV doesn't mean there aren't enough black fans to warrant making money.
