First off, I forsee a major talent retention issue coming up. Let’s say a diva gets some TV time and boosts her instagram followers to 2 million. She interacts with them, talks to them, grows her fan base. What is to stop her from quitting and doing a twitch stream or only fans? Why go on the road 300 days a year and get paid like shit and get beat up every night when you can sit in your home office and flick your bean or bend over and have you effiminate boyfriend take pictures?
WWE is competing against a wide array of content creation options now.
They are also facing an uphill battle with a smart fan base. To ad to that, you have the gay gay gay trans trans trans black black black bullshit they shove down our throats. That’s a huge turnoff to their 40+ fan base.
If all that weren’t enough, you have cancel culture which can’t be easy for what amounts to a bunch of incestual carnies that are on the road all year.
And let’s not forget all the entertainment options competing with them: Illegal streams, video games, netflix, amazon, and the list goes on.
