Are there even "droves" of female wrestling fans?

Yeah, but they told me they don't want to hang around you. Sorry.

Don't women equate around half the WWE audience these days? It's odd they'd be changing channels, when you watch Raw it doesn't seem like Punk is getting the half cheers like Cena often gets...always seems like the entire audience is down with Punk.



Shut up, Josh!

Yeah plus I have it on good authority (girl friends that are non-wrestling fans) that CM Punk is a handsome fellow.

My lady says Punk looks like (her exact words) - "a scuzzy hobo guy with nasty tattoos who really needs a good night of sleep."

She still thinks Edge is the hunkiest guy the WWE's ever had. Different strokes, I guess.

I'm trying to remember how it basically works, but I think it's that the truly hardcore fill up the PPV arenas, with TV tapings being mostly hardcore fans with some casuals.

House shows get a lot more casuals (families and young kids) because the smarts usually don't want to waste their money on a show where they know nothing will happen. TV audience is a mix of everything, with most fans naturally being casual.

That's the problem they're having with Cena. While the PPV and TV audience roasts him alive a lot of the time, the house show crowds and TV viewers love him. It puts them in a weird spot as to whether or not to turn him, because while it may get him back the PPV and TV crowd, he'd risk losing the casual audience that brings in a lot of money.

That RAW main event with Punk/Bryan/Ryder as a team was a great wrestling moment, and the crowd loved it, but people at home were changing the channels by the hundreds of thousands. As big as Ryder is in TV crowds and on the internet, every time he's had a match on TV he's lost a lot of viewers. Other guys that TV crowds react good to like Ziggler and I think Kofi have also had similar problems.

The WWE has weirdly created a separation between what the people in the building want to see, and what the viewing audience likes.

It's not weird when you consider that The Voice of the WWE has been burying Bryan and Ryder on commentary for more than a year.

I said this in the other thread, but Xplosion is a ton more effective at advancing storylines. In addition to showcase (squash) matches, there are highlight packages, promos, and clips from the PPV. Unfortunately, not everyone has it.
