The Notorious Eddie Mac Presents: The WWEekly Confidence Index (Week of Feb. 2): Does WWE Hate You?

Just a quick little commentary bit before I begin: You know, for a wrestling organization that claims freedom of expression, their actions certainly say otherwise: CM Punk signs being confiscated, Punk chants being purposely drowned out, and fans being blamed for disappointing returns. I could tell you at least four things that are wrong with this, but I'll save it for another fanpost. On with the Index.


Sometimes, we need a reminder that it's not all doom and gloom in the wrestling world. Take for an instance a little thing that happened in the town of Easton, Pennsylvania last Saturday. Granted, most of us wouldn't be able to find Easton on a map without a little help (it's about 55 miles north of Philadelphia), but in that little town, a bunch of people got together and held a wrestling event for charity. While that's cool, what happened at the end got anyone who followed the independent circuit talking: Chikara, a Northeastern-based wrestling promotion thought to be dead after the events of last summer, resurrected itself in grand fashion. Seriously, even if you don't watch or never heard of the promotion, the final moments of National Pro Wrestling Day 2014 is pretty awesome. Now if we can only get the WWE to inject a little bit of fun into their product right now.

Once again it's time to measure the confidence of you, the WWE fan and consumer. You know, the fan and consumer that invests time and money into their product. The fan and consumer that has many more options with their hours and dollars. It doesn't matter if you're a mark, smark, or cynical son-of-a-bitch, I want to hear from you. How are you feeling as a fan and consumer right now? But before you answer, here are some of the events of the past few days.

Saturday, January 25

Thursday, January 30

Friday, January 31

Saturday, February 1

Sunday, February 2

Monday, February 3

Tuesday, February 4 *WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD!*

Let's hear from you: where is your confidence as a WWE fan and consumer right now? Whatever criteria you use is up to you. Polls open until 1pm ET Friday, at which point I'll post the followup. Best five comments get in.
