I currently don't like WWE all that much. I DVR Raw and find myself fast forwarding through the majority of it. I haven't watched Smackdown in weeks, except for replays on UHD when something cool like DB going nuts on The Shield. Nothing really captivates me at all. My DVR messed up this past Monday in the middle of the Naomi/Bella match. I read the results and feel I missed nothing. That's not something I would call a positive feeling for the company. My own tastes and preferences aren't satisfied with the WWE product right now. I think it sucks. I'm really not high on all the new blood that everyone else seems to be high on. I think Ziggler is weak, I think DB is average at best, I think The Shield is annoying and bland, and I think CM Punk is boring.
In my opinion, WWE wouldn't even be around without John Cena. Everyone on here hates him but honestly, he's the entire marketability of the WWE. It's not like before when they could replace a big star by creating another one. The fans are way to indecisive and constantly change their mind. There will never be a big star like Cena again IMO. So when he hangs it up, I feel it will start the eventual demise of WWE. There are no more Stone Cold, Rock, or Hogan types after Cena.
I think it's all a cycle and they found themselves in a bad gap. Look at some of the people who came back long after their careers probably should've been over, to put people over. Hogan in his last wrestling run, HBK, Mick Foley...these guys had major clout, so putting people over helped launch the careers of guys like Brock Lesnar, Kurt Angle, all the way up to Randy Orton and Cena. But now, Angle's in TNA, Brock is only involved in special attraction matches so he won't be in there with up and comers, Orton never reached the heights of the latter, and Cena can't put everyone over all by himself...and that's if he ever decides to. WWE really misses out with guys like Bret Hart and Edge who's careers were cut short and they can't put people over in the same fashion. The losses of Eddiie Guerrero and Benoit so they can't help put people over. Honestly, it's unfortunate for people like DB, Miz, Ziggler, Rhodes, etc...who seriously need that in order to really make it to the next realm and have a chance to carry the company forward.
