WWE Looking Long Term: Why Fans Need to Practice Patience

Patience: the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on annoyance/anger in a negative way; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. Patience is the level of endurance one's character can take before negativity.

It has been said; patience is a virtue.

Well, tell that to the fans.

Patience can be a great habit to hold. It’s the key to great things to come.

Yes, we are also told to seize the moment, go for it, don’t let the opportunity pass by.

But once again, patience can be the key to success.

Yes, we do want to go after whatever it is we as humans desire, but what if we simply are not ready and the time is not right?

Today everything is fast-forward. Everyone wants anything and everything now.

Especially with fans, no one wants to see their favorite sports team fall short and have to wait until next year to see if they can pull it off.

Same goes for plots and story lines. People can’t wait to see how things play out, fans want to know what will go down before anyone else.

The Internet is said to be the blame for the current state of pro wrestling’s ratings and overall product quality compared to the past.

Spoiler websites have been the main blame to causing a decrease in viewership in sports entertainment, as they report upcoming story lines, developments and TV taping results.

But are they really the ones to blame?

Who says that we as fans have to read the reports being posted?

Yes, it’s hard as they are posted everywhere you may turn on the web, so it is hard to tune the reports out of sight out of mind.

But this goes back to patience once again.

Speaking of reports; recently you may have noticed articles disagreeing with WWE’s decision to bring back CM Punk so early, Daniel Bryan wanting to wait to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase and Albert Del Rio’s destiny to be champion continually put on hold.

Yes, CM Punk's triumphant return would have been more appreciated if his vacation would have been lengthier.

We could have seen more ambushes, taunting outside of the ring would have been great and could have spiced up the storyline.

But be patient. This storyline has just begun, we the fans sometimes jump the gun too early and are ready to criticize too quickly.

Look at it this way: we have the possible chance to witness another great main event between Cena and CM Punk in what can be an instant classic champion vs. champion match.

Some don’t want to see this though as it was speculated this would have been Alberto Del Rio’s time to cash in and fulfill his destiny to be WWE champion.

But once again, be patient his time will come.

Why rush into that just so he could lose the title as quick as he captured it?

WWE has an interesting storyline going right now. Why not lead in with that into WWE’s big summer event SummerSlam?

But that discussion is for this article here.

Yes, we the fans are supposed to be entertained and have been let down numerous times.

Look at it this way, did any of us expect the whole CM Punk effect to go down? No, that was something new, fresh, appealing and something we haven’t witnessed in years.

Not only that but we have also been witnessing lengthier matches which have been entertaining as well.

Triple H has assumed the role of being in charge of the WWE, although it may just be an on air role, it looks like he will fully assume the role in the near future.

He has already brought good ole J.R. back to the Raw broadcast table and we have been seeing more of Zack Ryder.

Yes, minor changes so far but we probably should expect more in the near future.

Do you think things will continue to get better, or start to cool down?

In a move that is sure to please many fans, WWE is planning to make changes to its booking philosophy, namely, focusing on more long term booking. WWE made an unprecedented move several months back by announcing John Cena vs. The Rock for next year’s WrestleMania a full year in advance—and it appears we’ll be seeing more big matches set up this way.  This is somewhat of an “old school” approach—with the company deciding on a featured match and then ‘working backwards.'

This is a great thing, story lines and feuds seem to be too rushed now-a-days.

So it would seem like changes are on the way and this time change looks to be good. Maybe I’m wrong, but if so we don’t know yet till it happens so relax and be patient.
