What is the biggest problem with WWE right now?

Its no secret that WWE is at a low point right now. There ratings are incredibly low. Their revenue, besides in Europe, is very low. They struggle to sell out arenas, even giving away free tickets or having the arena hire seat fillers. What do you believe is the main reason for this? Personally, I believe it is their pandering to the same demographic as Spongebob.

    WWE is plummeting. They are losing fans, losing attendance to their shows, and dropping ratings. WWE is struggling with their main brand: RAW. No good feuds anymore, or good matches. They even said on WWE.com a few weeks ago that Vince Mcmahon is concerned about this and to get the ratings up again they might add the Undertaker to RAW's roster! If this does happen, then what will smackdown be? Just like the stocks in the past few weeks, WWE is going through a trouble time.

    I can't disagree with you more. If anything, the WWE does need to start aiming for the kiddie demographic, because the 18 to 32 demographic simply isn't that interested anymore. It takes a lot to get a superstar over with the smart mark crowds of today, and even more to get a positive or surprised reaction. What WWE needs to do is re-establish kayfabe, and the best way to go about re-approaching kayfabe is through the imaginative minds of a kid, because wrestling is like Santa to kids, it's real until they turn 12. I'm not saying they should stay kid friendly, but they definitely need to draw in that new generation of fans, and grow as a product with them. That's exactly how wrestling got big when I was little. In the 80's, it was like a big cartoon with the vibrant colors face's wore and the power that a heel could draw, be it through money or magic, and all of this existed within it's own reality. Guys like Hulk Hogan were ultimate good, and they did no wrong. Then, as I matured, the characters matured. Going into the 90's, the vibrant color started to slowly fade until I was left with nothing but a little black here, a little white there, and shades of gray all around. Hogan became a complex character, a heel that you loved to hate, that almost sent out an all too real political message about corperate America. I grew as Hogan's character grew, and that's what the WWE needs to focus on. They need to tap into the pop culture of society and take something almost unanimously popular and capitalize on it with an attitude that either fits the times we are in, and blow it out of preportion with an almost cartoony stereotype to draw in the younger audience that relates to it.

    If they want to recapture that 20 something male adult group, they need to make the product smarter. Incorperate more wrestling into the show. I guarantee you that most wrestling fans within this age group that follows ROH, or Chikara, or promotions in Japan tunes into ECW more than any other televised wrestling show at this point. Why? Because they see what they want to see, wrestling, and not just any kind of wrestling, but a style that they like, a style that essentially needs to keep the talent pool rife with skilled and over young, key word, YOUNG athletes within the same age range as the audience. I honestly think that's what draws a lot of the smarty pants wrestling fans into watching independent wrestling. They see rebellion, youth, and innovation. These are things the WWE currently lacks a whole lot of. We're stuck with rehashed storylines we saw 10 years ago, and don't get me wrong, they were great ten years ago, but it's been done, it's grown tired, and like 90's wrestling put the 80's style to rest, they need to euthanize old concepts from the past decade and come up with a fresh product. Not as easy as it sounds, I know, but that's essentially what the WWE needs right now, freshness

    I agree with you. They need to stop just trying to please little kids by throwing John Cena, Jeff Hardy, and Rey Mysterio in our faces all the time. Also, the rating could go back to what it used to be so they could show more stuff on TV.
