I really don't get why people complain about WWE being run smart; being run like any other business and the aim of any business is to make the best decisions for the welfare of the company. What makes a company prosper? That's right - money.
Money makes the world go around people. Money is the driving force for just about everything good in this world. More money promotes more growth, more jobs, the improved welfare of others. Sure, the fat cats get the cream - it's always been like that and it's not changing anytime soon. Nobody is telling you that you have to like it - but one day you will have to accept that basic truth. Or not, but if you don't it won't benefit you one iota.
So what's that you say? There's other, better, more righteous things than money? What's that then? Love? Honour? Respect? Last I checked, only one of those things really helps you make it in this world and it's not the first two.
Yet people - wrestling fans
(are you?) - sit around and bemoan the lack of consideration wrestling companies offer them. They bitch about how unfair and wrong the decisions they make are. Let me tell you right now - wrestling fans, by and large - are the most ignorant, shortsighted people that exist on planet earth. They want their cake and eat it too - but they don't want to wait for it to be made, they want it NOW. They don't care or consider that to get from point A to point B, you have to cross the divide first.
So WWE is pushing their 2 favourite sons, Rock and Cena and is going to continue
to make a shitload out of it, despite what the vocal minority think about it. They gave fans what they were asking for by giving CM Punk a well deserved lengthy title reign but right now, you'd think that had never happened. Chances are, any meaning it had is being thrown right out the window like the baby with it's bathwater. Because stupid wrestling fans don't know when they have a good thing. They cannot ever appreciate the inherent value of something as a whole, because they focus solely on the glittering jewel in the middle. Like dumbstruck peasants mining for gold, they miss the beauty of the nature surrounding them. They can't see the wood for the trees.
CM Punk will be champion again - anyone who can't see that is a moron. I will NEVER comprehend those amongst us that can't just accept that and bide their time, be patient and for fuck sake grow up enough to put up with someone else in the spotlight for a bit. Even if that person has already had their share of the spotlight, too bad! You don't think that too much time in the spotlight isn't going to ruin CM Punk for everyone?? You fucking betcha it will. Is that what you want?
In any regard, WWE is here to make money first and please you, the "fan" second. And quite frankly, I can't blame them for not putting fans first. They are like recalcitrant children who bawl and kick rocks when things don't go their own way. You can't respect that - and that's why WWE doesn't respect you.
But they will still take your money.
