Meanwhile in Japan...the heels interact with the fans like this

Bryan Alvarez said it best.... WWE is like a cult and their "fans" will defend everything they do. It's best to just watch anything else, other than this trash.

I wish WWE tried making it more a TV show than a "wrestling promotion" as it would be more fun and the characters likely would be more interesting.

This. I would much prefer, "here's this character, his motivations and how he fights and here's this other character, his motivations and how he fights, cheer whoever you like best" instead of trying to pidgeonhole everyone into "bad guy" and "good guy"

Case in point: Bully AJ a best.

basically this

It's why they constantly plug themselves on broadcasts. I don't need to hear every week about how it's the longest running cable show.

They constantly reenforce this every show and are able to brainwash younger fans and dumber ones (asp)

>>2691956
Then they aren't heels

Heels get heat and people pay to see them lose. See MMA.

So when is that tiny Irish guy they have going to lose?

He already has

>>2692068
WWE is going to lose their TV deal and will rely on the network for their shows. Next year is going to be a painful year for them

But McGregor walks into stadiums to people cheering the fuck out of him and booing his opponents. If someone is nice and respectable to him in the build this wont change and the buyrate will still be upper 6 figures if not a million.

NJPW has storylines?
Isn't the belt a hot potato that mostly switches between Okada and Tanahashi?
Isn't Burret Crub a foreigner stable? from the 90s?
dem cringey Omega promos.

NJPW does some good things but it's mostly a workrate strong style fest.
>>
>>2693644
CUTE!
>>
>>2693740
Tanahashi hasn't had the IWGP Heavyweight Title in years. He's mostly putting over young talent these days, unless they're about to get kicked out of the Bullet Club.
>>
>>2693740

Tanhashi hasnt held the title since 2015 and i doing the whole "former ace trying to stay relevent schtick"

Okada is about to hit a full year on this current reign, njpw is far from a hot potato fest

Biz cliz and omega are over as fuck with westerners, however ill admit they often dont do much character archs outside of kenny emerging as a maineventer last year and challenging okada as the face of the brand at wk11.

The stories are there, especially with naito being bitter about not main eventing wk8, shibatas redemption story, kushida/hiromu and goto always getting close to being champ.

Tanahashi tells more story in the ring in one match than RAW has told in four weeks.
