I can honestly say it's been YEARS since I watched a full episode of Raw, but I keep following it on the 'net, patiently waiting for it to be something that is worth a two-hour-plus time investment per week and $50-investment per month, like it was once upon a time.

I lost my "serious" interest in Raw about a year and a half ago (meaning I'd watch the whole show). In the past few months, I've found myself watching less than an hour of the show (usually I find something else interresting while surfing during commercials and never come back).

I haven't watched SD! for nearly 3 years.

I occasionally watch the Impact! episodes I tape.

So, while I still watch wrestling, I watch much less of it than I used to. I guess you could say that I've moved on from it; it just doesn't hold my attention like before.

I quit watching regularly a year ago. If I watch (and it's rare), I catch Raw. I can't stand Smackdown because it feels so second rate.
Honestly, I'm more into UFC now.

I started watching wrestling in the late 70s. I watched a lot of Saturday night wrestling on TBS. My friend and I would watch WWF on Mondays. I was a huge ECW fan back when they started up. I don't know if it's just me growing up, or just looking at the current wrestlers and comparing them to past wrestlers, but I just can't get too excited about wrestling anymore. I watch, on occasion, but just in bits and pieces. I normally watch RAW about twice a month, I see Smackdown maybe once every two months. I haven't purchased a PPV in over three years. The last PPV I watched was actually a TNA PPV some time late last year.

I tape Raw and watch it the following morning. If the spoilers look good I will watch Smackdown and Impact. I haven't bought a PPV in six years, though. Sometimes when I'm in the shower I pretend I'm Triple H and spit water all over the ceiling and do the pose. Then I quietly wipe the ceiling dry before my wife wakes up. It's kind of a gross sight to behold.

I stopped watching regularly once I got to college and it became difficult to spend 2 hours a time in front of a TV watching wrestling. I just couldn't see my friends leaving me alone long enough to enjoy Raw and/or Nitro and/or Thunder and/or Smackdown! every week.

I still watch occasionally, and I've actually started watching Raw on a semi-regular basis the past month or so. But I knew I had to give up my status as full-time wrestling fan when the Raw/Smackdown super show came to where I live this past week and I completely forgot about it until it was over.

I'm either a dedicated fan or to lazy to change. You take a guess at which one it could be. 18+ years.

I had rarely been watching any new stuff for a while - although the WWE Match Jukebox and the wonders of Youtube has kept me enriched in the classics - but ECW has brought me back into the fold.

I'll watch RAW, catch the odd SmackDown, and never know when Impact is on. Nothing as serious as it used to be, though.

Very Rarely. I got spoiled by the attitude era in the late 90's being so good. I also used to have friends to watch PPVs and split the cost. And people at work used to talk about it. (Now that I think about it, it's probably not a smart move to talk about wrestling at work, but oh well...)

Now I watch only the tiny picture in picture on TV when I watch another baseball game. Maybe I'll see an average of 30 minutes a week.

I flip on Raw or Smackdown about twice a month. I usually just read what happens on the show and then watch if I think it's going to be good. I watched my first PPV this weekend since last year, which coincidentally was the last ECW ppv.

Yes, but the current programming isn't as enjoyable as the old stuff. I'm finding myself watching more classic pro wrestling now than ever before, and the Internet has been a real blessing in terms of the range now available.

I DVR Raw and Impact, but only watch Impact if the spoilers sound good or it is live. I miss RAW 80% of the time because when I finally do watch one, it is the same crap.

Lance Storm's commentary, that was linked to in the wrestling forum, pretty much sums up why I don't watch anymore. I don't have to, esp with the PPVs.

My roommate still watches the WRESTLING and with FF through all interview/backstage segments, everything that isn't a match and he loves the products much more, esp TNA. I'll pop in from time to time to watch some matches with him, but after 5-10 mins, I'm done.

That's what I posted April 26, 2006. Then Bret Hart's return to RAW got me back into it.

NOW I watch RAW after recording it off the DVR, which usually takes 25-45 minutes. I would go through it slower if every week the main event didn't follow the "face controls the first couple minutes/go to a commercial/come back with heel in control and show us what we missed"-template, but with the way it is I skip the entire first segment of the main event.

I gave Impact a shot. It didn't take. And I've been happy to pass on SmackDown for now.
