I don't think it is so much bitching as it is frustration. Paul Heyman was a hell of a lot better with barely a tenth of the talent pool to work with. When you know how much better it could be it becomes more and more sickening to watch it being pissed away. I keep watching in the hope it gets better. That hope is fading and with Vince having the monopoly I don't have much choice but to stop watching. When I got sick of the N.W.O. five years ago I had two alternatives. I guess my last chance is that this "split" might give me one show a week that is booked halfway decent.

All the fans that went away are those that were drawn in by Russo's booking, which everyone seems to hate so much. Wrestling is in a slump, as it periodically is. It'll get over it, like it always has, and then the internet community can bitch about a new group of fans that don't know anything about the history of the business.

There will always be someone doing pro wrestling in this country. But will wrestling as a major tv program survive another year or two of erosion? We've lost 2 companies with national tv contracts in the last 18 months. The only one left has seen steady audience decline over the last 2-3 years, losing over half it's peak audience. And judging by the sentiment beginning to be expressed more and more on this board, die-hard fans are not bitching as much about the product as just simply not watching. If they lose us, what happens when the rest of the Attitude converts get bored?

I think they just dropped down to normal viewing levels. I don't see the WWF dropping too much more (maybe down to 3.5 as the average RAW rating), but it will then rise again, just like it always has.
