The boss is in. WWE has grown into the biggest and most powerful wrestling promotion in history, reaching a level that was almost impossible to fathom. They currently have seven hours of new television a week in prime time, including two hours of SmackDown on FOX. However, the television audience has been taking one hit after another, and it might be time to do something about it.
According to the Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast, Stephanie McMahon has been meeting with television executives to attempt to find a way to deal with WWE’s declining television audiences. The meetings are designed to help find some new concepts to reverse the trend, though it is not clear what could be proposed. There is no word on which network McMahon was meeting with or what might happen if the numbers do not increase.
WWE has had some concepts before. Check out a few of their ideas:
Opinion: I get what they’re going for here but ultimately, a gimmick of some kind is only going to take WWE so far. The fans are not interested in the style of wrestling that WWE is presenting at the moment and it is going to take some time to get things up and running again. Now granted having a gimmick attached could help, but it isn’t going to matter if there is nothing there to keep the fans interested.
