The central argument is: The fact that you're making a commitment to pay for the next six months AND getting access to their entire library removes any motivation for them to have to make "draws" anymore. I've been worried about the same thing for months.
This is nothing new really. Vince has been working his way to this point for the last 30 years and actually achieved it a while ago. It sucks that there will probably never be a Hogan/Austin level star again but purely as a "hardcore" fan I actually like the way the business and in-ring aspects of WWE seem to be headed.

This thing may damn well kill wrestling if they can't figure out how to make it work. It's completely ridiculous to shill the hell out of something that can't play anything. It's not like it's some new innovative concept.

Hate to say it but the guy makes a good point, one that I've noticed in the past. WWE doesn't rely on their current stars as draws anymore like they did with Hogan, Austin etc. Now the company merely relies on the "brand", a cache of goodwill built over the decades. That's why they plug their video library so much and lean so heavily on legends and names from the past. All they do is shove in your face how good WWE used to be, instead of help improve what's going on today.
