Doesn't Taker/Reigns vs Shane/McIntyre echo 2000 WCW? Like seriously, this is what they're selling in 2019? What is the target audience?
Obviously WWE is still doing much better in overall revenue than WCW was, they're not losing money, but if they keep this up, IMO some negative effects just have to come sooner or later. It's just common sense. Ratings are dropping, attendance is dropping and IMO FOX will realize they bought stale crap very soon into the deal. You can't deliver a stale, shitty product for years on end, have literally no proper new stars and continue to boom business-wise. Especially in entertainment.
Yeah, but you gotta keep Shane strong. That's the first rule of the wrestling business!
