How come I just don't feel that engaged about the product anymore? I barely remember to tune into RAW and SmackDown though I have fun watching them whenever I can. I keep forgetting about NXT and I already forgot to tune into AEW but even they don't captivate me anymore. The product feels way too niche now to be any good. It all just feels like something to do in passing yet not something that gets me that excited anymore.

The last time I watched anything related to NXT was a video posted of the Poppy performance since I missed the beginning of that show and I didn't even know she was going to be there. I have never cared more about the musical performance than the actual wrestling product before. I am just starting to not care anymore if I miss RAW, SmackDown, NXT, AEW, NJPW, WoW, whatever. I do kind of enjoy WWE Backstage though from what I've seen of it, but other than that I don't know what is wrong here.

you watch boring shows and if a product being "niche" is concerning to you then maybe you're better off playing fortnite or something

Sounds like you are just over wrestling man.
So you don't need to be coming round here anymore.
Go out find something new that does excite and interest you the way wrestling used to.

Not just you suffering from this.

These days, I just can't be bothered with sweaty man drama unless it's the classic matches from long ago. I like prowrestling sometimes, but everyday? Fuck that shit.

Try MMA and Boxing. Trust me, real fights are much better and easier to talk about in public with normies.

I didn't watch any wrestling, was 100% out from about 2006ish until 2014. I'd probably be out again right now if streaming hadn't advanced so much and now I can watch puro and such.

I think the thing is you had a lot of people try and make AEW sound like the next big thing when they're just doing the same shit you've seen for many years. The ratings are dropping, the hype has faded away, they aren't selling out shows any more, the only good thing is that TNT are still satisfied with what they're getting, which is vital when they're actually paying for all those production costs.

Wrestling isn't cool anymore, it's full of flippy vanilla midgets that are the least bit intimidating.

Talking about anime or memes is much cooler and accepted.

You're not excited anymore because the product is worse. Whether it's WWE micromanaging everything into a sterile promos and matches, or the extremely played out flippy-kicky no-sell style everywhere else, everything is just worse.

Calm down, she is not that bad. As far as musical talent goes, WWE and AEW could do a lot worse. You've also got to take into account that the average wrestling fan is going to have shit taste in music, so it's not like they're going to challenge their musical palette by booking Death Grips or something to open NXT.

All the media produced today is a bland-flavored corporate hogwash. It doesn't help most major companies have cult fanbases who only want to consume product.

One of my friends got really excited about AEW, even texting me about Brit Baker's finishing move lol. He watched the PPVs and stuff. But then when I saw him a few days ago I asked him if he had seen the latest shows and he just said he hadn't and didn't he wasn't missing anything.

AEW is a show that if you watch it, you say "oh that was a good match", but it's lacking a certain "what's going to happen this week?!" or "How are they going to resolve this?" cliffhanger type draw.

It's because WWE forced horrible storylines down everyones throats so angry wrestling fans are begging for the complete opposite which is almost no storylines.

It should be somewhere in the middle. I fully agree that it lacks cliffhangers. Im interested in the MJF fallout but that's about it storyline wise.

to add to this i pop in occasionally if goldberg or sting or the rock comes back or whoever and just come here out of habit cause i have been since 2006 (i think?) and i watched AEW the other night. i thought AEW was very good, but the truth is it didn't really excite me at all. i wanted to go watch something on netflix instead.

its ok to stop liking things. i still listen to or watch things related to classic late 90s wrestling though.

yeah sometime here you get this weird defensiveness when people bring up that AEW needs more vignettes, promos etc, as if people think you want it to be like WWE, and there are only two companies in wrestling.

You're right, there is a balance to be struck, you can have good matches and good stories too. In fact that's what US wrestling is all about.

OP, it's because there's zero reward for tuning in regularly. All the storylines are just sorta going through the motions because Vince wants certain endings at certain points because that's his formula, alliances don't matter from week to week (Charlotte went from replacing Lacey Evans as Natalya's tag team partner, but all of a sudden she's teaming with Becky now). It straight up doesn't matter if you miss several weeks of programming because it's all predictable and overproduced, and even if you were to watch it, they might just randomly ignore weeks of storytelling anyway.
