Very good points, Wombat. I think it can be summarized as follows. The WWE is an entertainment company, not a wrestling company. They care about profits, mainstream media attention, the value of their stock, social media, movies, non-wrestling TV shows, their new network, etc. The larger they make the company, the better the profits, and the more mainstream media attention they get. However, bigger does not mean better. Quite the opposite, really. The mainstream media loves John Cena in a way they could never love Daniel Bryan or CM Punk. It's his physical look and entertaining charm, not his wrestling ability, that sells with non-wrestling fans. Since there are not enough wrestling fans in the world to make the company grow beyond a certain point, we are no longer the demographic Vince is after. He's after entertainment fans. So the wrestling product will continue to deteriorate, while the entertainment product gets bigger and bigger. Wrestling purists (the IWC) hate this. But that's the way it is, and it will never change back. Ever. Learn to like it, and you can still enjoy WWE to a degree. However, if you want professional wrestling to be the way it used to be, don't watch WWE. You'll just continue to be disappointed.

I agree with the Great One on each of his points. No way the Undertaker loses at Wrestlemania, ever. No way Cena turns heel, at least not for many more years. Very poor booking.
