tl;dw, but now having a real perspective of both the outsider (less marky people) and regulars who consume wrestling content often. No, not really. Maybe sales are down, but the amount of people watching and enjoying WWE is still pretty high.

That and I swear that I've heard that WWE was going downhill for the last 7 years since I started here, lol.

Territories like WCCW and CWA didn't die overnight either.

Just the other day Meltzer was going on about how strong WWE’s TV revenue was, which is probably the most important thing. The NFL and other powerful leagues across the world are usually successful because they have massive TV deals backing them.

They're losing business but they're not going to die anytime soon. Just like Nintendo during the Wii U era. They were losing money every year but now the Switch is selling like hotcakes. WWE will be fine.

To latch onto TJ's point. Even if they are going downhill right now. WWE has enough hold on the industry that they have to maintain that downward spiral for a long time before they die. There's also the point that unless the average TV consumer stops watching, there will need to be a solid contender to take its place.

comparing TNA's money issues to WWE's is like comparing a stub toe to a gut shot from a shotgun

Nah not even close. They're way too damn big. So many people will go on and off from watching it. Wrestling fans will wanna watch it just to see big names they like even if they hate WWE (like people who watch only for AJ Styles or Dean Ambrose or Seth or Finn or Nak, etc.) whenever WWE gives them a good storyline. And casuals that barely watch (like my brother) will shift in and out whenever they're bored and wanna see something convenient.

Between their Youtube revenue, TV deals (even with ratings going down, they're still very very high up in the ratings compared to other shows), merch sales, NXT rising way up, and still relatively strong ticket sales (not to mention their connections), WWE will never die. Plus, expect more smarks to start watching again once Vince dies and Triple H makes it feel more like NXT.

NXT isn't rising. They do good on certain weekends and do like 300 people other places. Looks good if you average it with major shows but it's still a big money loser.

WWE loses money everywhere but their TV deals. That's what's making them money. And you are all ignoring the fact that every year the ratings are down.
