    Being Entertained

    Hey guys long time reader but first post here so be nice :-). Here goes! With all the posts and blogs in regards to the Royal Rumble and people clearly not happy about The Rock potentially winning the title, I thought I would just ask this one simple question and that is what happened to just being entertained?

    Personally I really don't want Punks streak to end but if the Rock wins i'm still happy because it will be extremely entertaining and potentailly bring new life into the title. What I dont undertstand is why us (as the fans) feel the need to worry about what is fair for the full time wrestlers, why cant we just chill out a bit and be entertained ? Its not even like the people posting are bothered about how fun the Rock winning will or won't be, they're worried about the future of the buisness and talents. Why! surely people are being paid a lot of money to worry about that so we dont have too.

    Its not just The Rock and Punk, the same can be said for The Miz and Flair were people think it should have by all rights been Ziggler (p.s. Love the way Ziggler is at the moment with A.J and Big E and really want to see more of it.) I think Miz and Flair were excellent together and the passing on of the figure 4 was really cool.

    Those are just two examples but I am interested to hear your opinions?

    It's the drive by IWC, it's their job to be moaning little bitches.

    That's it really.

    From my point of view I just don't find The Rock entertaining, never have. So I would rather he wasnt champion so I don't have to watch too much more of him. Other than that I do try to just enjoy the show. I also enjoy the odd IWC drive-by criticising everything, but only because that's part of the fun. Anyone who takes wrestling seriously is just inwardly screaming "it's still real to me dammit!"


    Divas to believe in.

    If done rightly Rock winning the title could be refreshing.

    Wade, your insightful and in-depth dissection of the sports entertainment industry and it's fans, while as exciting as ever, is getting a little staid and black and white. Consider for a moment, won't you, the whys and wherefores of how fandom came to be this way.....

    Firstly, we've been spoiled. Spoiled for choice - look at how much wrestling is coming at us on a weekly basis. It is constantly in our face and as a consequence it leaves little time for speculation or surprise.
    Secondly, it's one terribly crowded scene. With so many Superstars on the active roster (Raw, SD and NXT), it hardly leaves much wiggle room for giving half these guys a fair shake at exposure. We see half the roster being wasted and it frustrates us - leaving us with the sour taste of resentment in our mouths which has the trickle down effect of making us judge the product in a bit of a harsher light.
    Thirdly, we are all more connected as fans than ever. On a global scale, we are all able to use the internet to swap and share ideas about how we think things should go. All these thoughts and opinions were still there before - we're just only now becoming aware of the scale of what is probably unfair discontent and disillusionment with wrestling when all these voices become united and hence, more clearly heard.
    Lastly, there is the huge misconception that when a group is very vocal on the internet that that group becomes 100% of the internets opinion. It's not. People are simply paying more attention to what the vocal majority are saying - and sadly, those who talk the loudest seem to always be the ones who have something to complain about.

    So what does that all mean? It means our expectations are way beyond what they should be - so it leads to disappointment. Like movies and music, someone lead the audience to believe that we are owed a certain level of entertainment that satisfies us; for some reason fans like to believe it's their fucking right or something. It is not a right - it's a privilege.
