After tonight's Rumble match, it has to be clear to even McMahon or HHH's staunchest supporters that they are clearly out of touch with their viewers. You could tell by the audience's reaction pretty much every potential winner fans would have been happy with. Without a doubt Bryan, Ambrose and Ziggler would have gotten huge cheers as the guy to get the "Ending Undertaker's Streak Re-Rub", and I'm pretty sure they could have safely gone with Mizdow, Wyatt and maybe even Ryder. And of course by the end, when reality had sunk in, the crowd made it known they'd even take fucking Rusev over Reigns. But no, Vince and/or HHH knew better than we do what we actually want, and now Brock gets fed to Reigns.
I usually feel like people over-react about how bad the product has gotten. NXT is enough to balance out the bad parts of RAW for me, and even in the same show I'm now complaining about they had a pretty enjoyable title match. But screwing up the A story as bad as they are now is the last straw for me. I know the only way WWE will actually listen to the fans is if we vote with our wallets, so I am canceling my WWE account as of tonight.
So it occurs to me, if you agree about the need to send a message to Vince and HHH, you could try to start a "Cancel Your Account" campaign on your site, to make it absolutely crystal clear what we as fans think they need to do. The more people that can collectively each pull $120 a year out of WWE's coffers, the more likely they will actually make a lasting change to the product.
And to be clear, at least to me, the change that needs to happen is that whoever currently has the "final call" when it comes to important matters needs to step down immediately. New blood is needed at the top level of the company.
Maybe it's a waste of time, maybe they are actually willing to go out of business before admitting they've lost touch, but for me at least the line has been crossed. They get no more money from me until they can right this ship.
Yeah, but I love the WWE Network. Why cut off your nose to spite your face? It also allows me to go back and watch GOOD shows, like 1996 Nitros!
