    So Who Actually Still Watches Wrestling?

    In the heyday of this forum I could say that almost all of us were fanatical viewers. That was back in 2002.

    So what are your wrestling viewing habits now?

    I watch Raw, Smackdown, impact and download ppvs, on a completely ilrevlant note I also live alone! I use the fast forward button a lot, wrestling has been shit since the invasion angle.

    I don't watch anymore, other than Wrestlemania. I watch UFC instead. I find it's easier to watch without wanting to smash my head in with a brick. Which was always my biggest complaint about wrestling.

    I don't really watch wrestling anymore either. When I shared a house with a couple of workmates, I'd stick on one of the old PPV's that he had on DVD & watch that, but haven't really watched anything recent in ages. I watch a bit of UFC these days too but even that is on the odd occasions rather than most/all PPV's.

    Still buy the odd DVD and find my self watching them when I'm bored. I'll watch the big PPV's if someone else is willing to buy them and I've even went to a few live show's when they are in my part of the world. I'm goin to TNA in January I believe but I wouldnt say I'm a big fan any more, it's more of a link to older friends than anything now.

    Avoid NXT at all costs, even the announcers laugh at it.

    I watched Summerslam '98 last night, those were the days! Smile

    I dont watch any wrestling at all now, gone right off it im afraid.

    People like Cena, The Miz put me right off watching it to the point I hated it.

    I know Kane is the champion but have no idea who the other one is or the Inter champ / tag team champs etc etc.

    Used to really enjoy it but last time I saw it, it was rather crap.

    I only watch PPV's, but I do still buy certain DVD's, particularly the ones with good match collections.

    I don't follow it at all. I only watch two PPVs during the year - Royal Rumble and WrestleMania.

    I agree its been shit post-InVasion. Sigh, memories of the heel Austin...

    I don't really watch much anymore either. I'll watch the occasional RAW with some buddies if they're watching it at their house and I'll d/l a PPV every now and then and check the WWE site occasionally to see what's happening. I mean I still somewhat follow it but don't watch it very often. You know it's sad when you don't watch it for months then watch a random show with some friends and can guess exactly what will happen ahead of time. I mean I look like a genius but it's pathetic

    There was a lengthy promo on Raw this week which sums up everything I hate about WWE, it even started with a screen saying TV PG! This was followed with lots of self appraisal about how wonderful the product is etc. Neutral

    Back in '97 they tried to push Rocky Maivia but the fans hated him so they turned him heel, if they had done that to Cena all those years ago... *retro smash :doh: emoticon* The customer is always right and this is how they were able to win the Monday Night War.

    It surprises me how they are still able to feel arenas and the attendances they get for Wrestlemania for what is an utter shit product.

    Haven't watched in a long time. If there's a cheap DVD to be had I'll pick that up but otherwise I'll leave it. Still read 411mania a lot for its reviews but that's about it for me. Did watch Royal Rumble 1991 the other day though, good times.

    That my friend is the problem these days.

    The precentage of a weekly show that is actual wrestling is about 45%. The rest of it is all talk. Go back just even five years and do the math. It ain't what it used to be anymore.

    True - I tend to dip in and out of what's happening online and the catch the shows that interest me as and when.
