IWC: Let your voices be heard

Rock vs Cena II.
Yup, it's happening. And there's nothing you can do about it.....
.....Well, almost nothing.
It is of no surprise that this rematch is by far the most unanticipated, unwanted rematch in recent wrestling history. As fans on this site and similar wrestling sites have done since getting the idea that such a rematch would take place, we've gone to blogs and discussion boards to voice our, well let's call it displeasure. (I'm sure there are plenty of better terms to use there, but I'll leave that up to you to fill in). While in most cases it doesn't accomplish much to complain, because the powers that be at WWE rarely react to what the IWC has to say. And why would they? Blogs and message boards don't have any direct threat to WWE. We can bitch and complain all we want, but as long as we tune in and buy the PPV what consequence is it to them to change anything?
And they are right. Because in the end, we are wrestling fans. And as wrestling fans, we watch Raw every Monday night. And as wrestling fans, we are going to buy Wrestlemania 29 no matter the fact that Rock v. Cena 2 will headline the PPV. Because as much as we may threaten not to buy or watch, as any good junkie, we always end up coming back.
But there is one thing we can do about it. One avenue that WWE has afforded those who attend Raw, which happens to be filmed LIVE every Monday night. I believe that if we truly, as a collective, don't have interest in Rock/Cena 2, we encourage anyone and everyone attending the next handful of Raws prior to WM29 to let the WWE hear your displeasure.
And I mean as a COLLECTIVE. While signs can get taken away, voices can not. So my crusade is centered around each and every time that the Cena Rock main event is hyped, or when Cena and Rock are in the ring making feeble attempts at cutting promos to get us interested, we loudly and continuously chant phrases like "We don't want this", "No one wants this", "Cena and Rock suck!",.....I'm sure you get the idea.
See I believe that if a company that so depends on a live crowd to help enhance their product to millions watching on TV, it would be good medicine to, at the very least, try and embarrass their decision to ignore their fans and proceed with this unwanted main event. We do have one single outlet to accomplish this. Live TV can't edit out 3-5 minutes of a crowd if it's done every single week.
I suppose this desperate attempt at some kind of change comes from being tired of writing about it in blogs knowing nothing will change. I want there to be something, ANYTHING we can do to let WWE hear it. This is possibly the only way it can happen, because they know and we know come April 7th, like it or not, that $69.99 will be charged to your cable or satellite bill, headlined by Rock vs. Cena 2, the rematch no one wants, so let the WWE hear it on Raw.
