You Will Get What Your Given

Hello again readers of ewrestling. After my last blog "Digital Era Killed The Pay Per View Star Part 2" and watching some wwe and tna shows I have been pretty much compelled to write up another blog on my thoughts on how wwe seems to not give much of a crap about what their fans want and how atleast tna seems to be trying.
I will start off by saying this isnt a hate filled blog nor is it ripping anyone apart, its a means to get some thoughts out and possibly create a constructive debate on the subject, so here we go...
One thing I have noticed in the last few years of wwe is their knack for forcing things on us fans that we don't want nor cant accept and intentionally taking away that which we do want. The prime example of this is Ryback, wwe is trying their hardest to make us care about this guy but we all know its goldberg mark II so we don't care yet they want us to by constantly having him face random people in handicap matches. I for one would like a new monster bloke on the scene but this way.
The diva's division is a prime example. We are all screaming for them to hire real women talent and push the division up to where it should be but do we get it? nope, we get models who cant run ropes nor act to save themselves sans AJ who is proving some worth, instead we get two minute matches, dance off's or bikini contests (good to look at yes but still), how can they think this is what we want, the crowd at each ppv since EC have chanted for kharma to front up and she says she is ready so where is she?
Their comedy segements have never been worse, crowds boo them or chant something unrelated and most columnists will slaughter them, yet they still force them on us when they are a waste of time, gone are the days of commisioner foley's different offices every week to now hidden beiver shirts, ugh. Im sure big vince says at each creative meeting "they will get what I @#$%ing give them". Fans also want the main titles relevant again and a little edge and adult stuff in storylines, aint happening.
My friend and yours cena is the worst case here. Im don't hate him and I respect the work he does (all gone if it turns out he is multi time backstage cheating man-whore) but like everyone says his act is so stale a freshly made loaf of bread in the middle of the ring would be more entertaining. Anyway I do enjoy some of the lines he comes out with from time to time and the rare good match but we all want his charcter to evolve, let him put over some young guys etc but wwe won't do it because odds are its a fear thing, fear of losing money off his merchandise if he becomes evil. If people want change then do something about it, might be for naught but its somthing.
Now for tna. While I have said tna have done some dumb @#$% but right now fans seem to be getting listened too. Example one is austin aries, everyone is behind him now, they know he can talk and wrestle so tna seems to be recognising this and pushing him. Everyone wanted youngs front and centre and thats what we are getting with the likes of roode, storm, anderson, aries etc. We have called out for new things and they give us the gut check thing, fight night, weekly tv title defences etc its something atleast.
Its a pity they don't listen in regards to their tag team division. I remember how damn good it was now its nothing, no real teams to name anymore which is just sad. Worst of all everyone wants them to turf hogan but instead they let him hire his untalented daughter, thats really what the fans asked for isnt it?
My final point is this: wwe isnt listening to their fans (even if we can be wrong some times) and just giving us crap and telling us to like it. Tna is trying their best but with one step forward, two go back. So this is my opinion and I am very interested to hear everyone elses thoughts.
