Since the early 1900s the sport of professional wrestling has grown from carnivals to worldwide PPVs and company's like WWE and TNA and ROH and new Japan pro wrestling. And even defunct companies like WCW and ECW. There was once a time when wrestling was one of the top professional sports in the world. Such as the 80s during the pro wrestling boom and territorial years. Then ther was the 90s with the rise and fall of WCW and ECW, the atittude era in the wwe and a overall boom in the Monday night wars. How ever after the wars wrestling did decline in popularity. But companies have risen like TNA and ROH and other world organizations. Yet again WWE has declined in popularity (compared to the 80s and 90s) and tna is struggling and companies like roh or companies all over the world aren't as popular. And due to the overall decline. I don't see wrestling picking back up. I've seen many people say they have lost intrest. I have up to ten freinds who use to watch wrestling but stop watching it a long time ago (2 to 4 years ago). And I just wanna know how much longer will professional wrestling be popular. People are losing interest unless they are real fans (like me and many others). Also wrestling has been around for hundreds of years. Can it last hundreds more? Or will it been gone in a hundred. The McMahon dynast could still be lasting but will they know how to run WWE? Tna is on its last legs and I don't see it lasting 5 years. And many independent companies aren't growing. All we have is WWE. And if they are gone we have nothing left. So how much longer will wrestling as a professional televised franshise last? Times have change. As more lose interest then less talents are available. Look at wwe and tna they all use to have shit loads of very good talent. Now we have some but not as much as back then. I know we are in the end times and it seems that history is coming to a close but just when that will happen I don't know. So I want your opinion how long will professional wrestling as a major franchise sport last? The already took it out of the Olympics so when?
