I'm tired of seeing the silly message on my profile stating I have yet to write anything, so here goes.

Throughout the Internet Wrestling Community you will find gripes, rants, and diatribes discussing the faults folks see within the wrestling world. With the WWE being the biggest dog in the yard, let's focus there, shall we?

You might claim that the product emanating from Titan Tower isn't riveting enough. It's left you flat. There is nothing fresh and exciting.

Sick and tired of seeing the same men fighting in the main event? Can't get your proper tag team fix or see women wrestlers show what they can do?

Want to know how to change this?

It is quite simple, actually.

Simply change the channel or shut off the television completely.

Don't watch the WWE product on USA, MyNetwork TV, WGN America, or SyFy. Allow the ratings to sink to the level of the MyNetwork TV programming sans Friday night at prime time.

Forget shilling out $40 every three-to-four weeks on Pay Per Views. WrestleMania coming up? Screw the $55-60 charge.

Don't panic folks. You won't really be "missing" anything. Why? Because, whether or not a majority of folks do this, there will be that one who will still watch.

You'll have your wrestling websites still recapping the product. You'll still have YouTube, DailyMotion, Justintv, etc. to view all the programming.

I'm not saying for a total shutdown on WWE viewership. A large enough "boycott" can get the bigwigs to take notice.

The power lies in the viewers. WE provide the TV ratings, the live events money, merchandise sales, and PPV buyrates.

Would this ever happen? Not at all. Despite everyone's clamoring about things being bad, they will never go that extreme step to make their voice be heard.

So cry as you might, write your articles citing all the mistakes you see on TV, and be that backseat booker that you are, but things won't change until you give Vince & Co. a reason to change.
