    Firstly, you have too much time on your hands.

    And I agree with the points above.
    Always blame the fat guy.

    Use red ring ropes? They're just ropes. Who cares.
    I'd rather have nothing than have a lie.

    Yeah, because we want more Katie Vick and May Young giving birth to a hand... or Yeah, look how well it's working for TNA...

    Seriously, the stuff DarkSide quoted are the only good ideas mentioned. The rest varied from bad ideas to "Why?"

    Mr. McMahon could learn something from this indian proverb. "I had no shoes and complained,
    until I met a man who had no feet."

    Releasing all the divas is a great way to come under fire. Be a PR nightmare and not to mention lose a shit ton of viewers.

    Women are people too McMahon. Stay classy

    divas bring in viewers? are you watching the same show as I am. If you see the numbers, ratings drop during diva segments, and has been this way for years. People take a washroom break or get something to eat during diva segment. Nobody cares about divas, they are a waste of time quite frankly.

    Why not use those 5-8 minutes to hype up a match or do a promo about a storyline, people always complain how ppvs have weak buildup, here is 8 minutes they could use.

    Besides if everyone thinks whatever I posted is a bad idea, I guess you guys haven't watched wwe from 1998-2002, because almost everything I mentioned on that list was what wwe was doing back then... ratings were high, buy rates were high, most fans were happy. I don't care if you think attitude era was cheesy or stupid because of sexual segments, it brought more money and thats what WWE wants: MORE Numbers, More Money.

    I find it hard to believe anyone didn't enjoy the attitude era, the show was at its top. Austin made the most money for the company than anyone.

    Once again read my list, go over it, about 90% of that is what WWE used and it made them successful. Numbers don't lie. It was a great time.
    If this was the year 2000 and internet was as popular as it is now, very few people would be bitching, and every week we wouldn't get a 'worse raw ever' thread... yet this thread wouldn't even exist.

    Don't matter. Still not a wise business choice.

    WWE wasn't as big a corporation then as it is now.

    Almost guarantee that they'll catch endless shit from woman support groups and even stock holders.

    Women are capable of bringing in ratings. TNA highest rated segments have always been the knockout segments. There's some great female talent out there that can actually work entertaining matches. If you don't like women's wrestling at all, that's your opinion, just sating that I don't agree.

    Also. If by any chance my "stay classy" offended you in any way shape or form, I apologize.

    You know what's missing in this equation? Competition! The reason ratings were so high was because two organizations were giving everything they had on Monday Nights for Wrestling. If one wrestling show blew, they went to the other to make their point.

    I find it hard to believe anyone didn't enjoy the attitude era, the show was at its top. Austin made the most money for the company than anyone.
    When it was on it was easy to enjoy. Looking back, there were a lot of moments that aren't as memorable as we thought they were.

    Once again read my list, go over it, about 90% of that is what WWE used and it made them successful. Numbers don't lie. It was a great time.

    Nope. You'll see people complain that this generation of wrestlers weren't as good as the last generation, like I've been hearing during the 90s and the 80s when I was a kid. The internet made watching TV wrestling much harder to do because all we hear about is complaints and then get video of other organizations where the wrestling is tons better without the storyline. I doubt the Monday Night Wars would even have it's high ratings if the internet existed as it does now.
