I've read elsewhere online people talking about the wwe has become too corporate and the corporate mindset has now befallen a percentage of the fan base with how they view the product. That it has become too corporate in comparison to the past although it has always obviously been apart of the promotion. I thought there were some interesting points made and not the regular wwe sux yadda yadda, but some serious issues that some don't like.
These are points that were made:
-Fans worrying about what will draw instead of what would be more enjoyable and other
-The shows are about a show about wrestling
-The show is a long commercial that leads to other commercials with useless factoids
-The problem with Cena is that he is more a spokesperson for wwe than a guy with a character although he's the main star
-The company is only a commercial for itself
-The company is doing much more than what wcw did in being corporate which it once accused the competitor of
-Regardless of fan reaction pushes are given to stars the organization wants to push forward and vice versa
-Nothing matters because the main selling point is the initials WWE and the wrestlers/stories within it are swallowed up the wwe universe's pockets that nothing should become bigger than the initials
So I ask has the the little promotion that could that went National in 1984 become too big of a corporation? It's an interesting topic to me since inherently the company reached to the place of domination with either wrestlers (Steve Austin who rose to power complaining about bureaucratic red tape similar to CM Punk with Pipe Bomb) or the boss himself(who proclaimed unfair big business tactics by Ted Turner which had fans seeing the wwf as an underdog in the Monday Night Wars which led to victory).
1999-2002 changed the business forever and are we now reaping the benefits or rewards of the victorious renegade organization of the NWA?
**This is not about wwe if one likes the current product or not, but about the way the corporate aspect plays into the decisions made with the core product. Whether or not it interferes with the quality of the entertainment.
