Jaden's View: Do Spoilers Make a Match Less Interesting To Watch?

The Jaden SmallingsContributor IMarch 3, 2010

Welcome, Bleachers, to the second ever edition of Jaden's View.

Today's topic is whether spoilers make matches less interesting to watch.

Before we begin, the spoilers I'm talking about in this article are spoilers that give away match results.

Honestly, whenever I read Smackdown spoiler results, it takes all of the excitement out of the show since I already know what is going to happen.

Which is probably why WWE decided to make Raw—their flagship show—a live broadcast.

Personally for me, on one hand, spoilers don't really change anything because we have yet to see what actually happens.  

On the other hand, spoilers make the match less interesting to watch as a whole, since we already know what's going to happen.

Now, I know some of you may comment saying that's why it says "spoiler" before we can read the article, but people are obviously going to click on the link anyways.

In fact, research proves that Bleacher Report articles that indicate spoilers get the most reads, but it's not only Bleacher Report.

Every single wrestling website with stories that involve major spoilers get more views then stories that actually talk about professional wrestling.

That just proves people are still going to read the spoiler article whether or not it makes the match less interesting and exciting.

Let's create an example to make what I'm trying to say more clear, shall we?

If you saw a story on Wrestlezone.com that was entitled, Major Wrestlemania Spoiler: Edge to beat Chris Jericho?!

Would you click on it?

Most wrestling fans probably would.

Would it make the match less interesting to watch?

It would and it wouldn't.

It would because you would already know what's going to happen.

It wouldn't because it's Wrestlemania, and who cares if you already know the winner, Edge and Jericho would still put on a great matchup for the fans.

I'm sorry but I don't have a conclusion for this topic because if I say it does then you guys would get into a debate with me and give me reasons why it wouldn't and if I say it doesn't.. well you know.

Feel free to leave comments on whether or not you think spoilers make a match less interesting or not.

Oh yeah, and stay tuned for my next title which gives my conjecture on why either Matt Hardy or Christian should win money in the bank.

Until then, comment, like, and become a fan.
