people don’t watch wrestling for realism because its 2018 and the internet has been around long enough that any mystique surrounding the spectacle that was the WWF has long died off.
I don't know what they're watching for right now either, because I don't see how it's realistic (mainly because of the poor booking), but if it's just a big joke and there's no credibility, what are you guys watching? Big sweaty men in tights hugging each other? You guys have to be buying into something in order to watch it consistently. That's how it works.

trying to figure out what it is you dont understand here.

let me try to dumb it down as much as i can. the WWE is a public owned company in which the McMahon family own approximately 70% of the shares. the wwe owns multiple other business ventures under their brand i.e the WWE Network, a film production company, and formerly the XFL.

the newest incarnation of the XFL is owned by Vince McMahon. it is NOT under the WWE umbrella. this means that while yes, the XFL is owned by a man who owns shares in the WWE, it is a seperate entity that runs as it's own company.

there's more options than

1. hyper realistic traditional wrestling
2. big joke with no credibility

the new age of WWE sees the company look to embrace the internet age by giving the fans a different view of the product. lets take for example the massive amount of content filmed outside of the ring that they give on the WWE network. shows that feature wrestlers riding together, wrestling in training facilities, and even off-screen relationships.

just because you personally might need something to be realistic in order to enjoy it does not mean that everyone else has the same problem.

Lol "let me dumb it down" - proceeds to post a bunch of meaningless **** that I don't even want to skim through.

If you can't concede the fact that nothing can survive without the appearance of legitimacy, then I'm basically arguing with saw dust.

an apt analogy for the logic you're currently using

this is chula levels of ignorance here. you're continuously saying "no" based on your personal tastes. just because you might value realism so much that you can't enjoy something that doesn't take itself 100% serious does not mean everyone else feels the same. if that was the case WWE would've folded a long, long time ago.

but please, continue making arguments based around "lol" and "lmfao" rather than actually understanding that i'm trying to tell you that your personal opinions do not represent those of everyone else.

Pro wrestling is serious business apparently.

Who said anything about wrestling needing to be taking itself seriously? It's funny because WWE's main issue is that they do take themselves way too seriously now. They have the deal with ESPN where they put WWE highlights on SportsCenter, which is absolutely hilarious because it's not even a sport, but no, they're not trying to make themselves look legitimate with that.

?

because if WWE weren't taking themselves seriously they would stop promoting and marketing their product to a new audience?

Yes. Because the stuff they do in the indies is super realistic and legitimate looking. PWG is super realistic. The dick spot that Joey Ryan does all the time, totally realistic.

Ladies and gentlemen, Chula 2....

A deal with ESPN? Oh my, they must be taking themselves seriously. They couldn't possibly be using it as an opportunity to advertise.

I was just curious if anybody actually gave a shit about XFL.
