>storms out of frame

>"This Sunday at WWE™ Roadblock©: End of the Line©, live on the WWE™ Network©, I'm gonna kick your butt and take your WWE™ World Heavyweight Championship title©."
>camera pulls out as Austin whips and nae naes in easily shareable social media gif

What happened?

>forgets to dab

Based Now-era drawing dimes making the product child friendly to ensure a future passionate fanbase as well as reaching new audiences by diversifying the method of delivering content to social media
>>
the "brand" is the main star now not wrestlers. that way you never lose when someone leaves/gets injured/throws a tantrum. vince is a genius.
>>
>>2240182
>Now-era
>drawing dimes
>>
Then:
>Trish, Lita

Now:
>Balding horse, Ric Flair's son

What went wrong?
>>
>>2240182
The more "child friendly" it is, the less appealing it is to children, as well as adults
>>
>>2240215
That is why I stopped watching RAW divas
>>
>>2240182
spoken like a true corporate cuck

too bad there's no ''future passionate fanbase''
>>
>>2240221
Not really. Look ar any other popular kids entertainment. It's very light hearted.

Anyway it's for familys and everyone. The frat boy and ex wcw fans market likes the ufc.
>>
>>2240248
There's a very big difference between things parents want to take their kids to and things kids actually want to go to.
>>
>>2240215

What the fuck?

That man is 85% trapezius muscle
>>
>>2240251
It's not one size fits all. Obviously, kids like John Cena and he's about as child friendly as it gets, so there's some connection here.
>>
>>2240262
The thing is most of that audience doesn't stay a day past their 10th birthday because that's around the time kids start to like what's cool and popular among other kids and family friendly stuff isn't cool for a 10+ year old who thinks he's a big boy now.
>>
>>2240251
Not really. Anyway the attitude era was a product of its time.

You would have to recreate the American trends and culture of the 90's to bring that era back.

It won't happen.
>>
>>2240269
I'm not saying I want them to even try to bring the AE back I'm just saying that the current product isn't really in touch with what kids think is cool nowadays. Hell, some stupid youtuber "personalities" talking about random shit and/or playing videogames gets more interest out of kids than the whole of WWE.
>>
>>2240182

Well said
>>
>>2240182

>WWE's average viewer gets older and older every year
>WWE's audience gets smaller and smaller every year

Really makes you think.
>>
>>2240163
the problem isn't
>muh pg era
the difference between the two is that during that time the wrestlers were given a general idea of what they were suppose to talk about then develop their own way of getting that idea across. the reason promos sound shitty today is because wrestlers are basically forced to memorized scripts that are written for them word for word and it comes out sounding robotic and off putting.
>>
>>2241120
They're gonna have to reboot the product like early raw did.

In a studio. Nothing the nwanever did for tv shows.

Odd thing is that wrestlemania and royal rumbler geT bigger but wwe houseshows get smaller.

The lure of house shows these days have no appeal. We get too many free tv matches that end with clean finishes.
>>
>>2241282

Isn't NXT not scripted? Their promos are shit. The problem is that being charismatic is not a valuable trait in wrestlers anymore.
>>
>>2244222
NXT has no shortage of solid-at-worst promos.

>The problem is that being charismatic is not a valuable trait in wrestlers anymore.

Watch better promotions.
