Pro wrestling as a whole has been seeing a trend of less and less viewers that are diehard to watch their product. This trend, in my opinion, started back in 2001 when the WWE bought out WCW and ECW. There were many loyal ECW and WCW fans that stopped watching wrestling altogether because the WWE's style was simply not for them.
Fast forward to current day, and we see the industry barely able to fill the arenas no matter what show you go to. From Raw to Smackdown to Impact to Ring of Honor, you see empty seats, and that's a sign that pro wrestling isn't what it used to be.
I am writing this article because I believe there is a way to turn around the wrestling industry. In fact, I am going to give you five changes that the industry must make in order to get fans back into the seats and in front of the television sets again.
I believe that pro wrestling is something people either love or hate, but you know it's bad when even fans seem ashamed to admit they like pro wrestling. I think it's about time for the wrestling world to make some radical changes and get the industry back on track so that fans can have pride in the sport they love.
