Corey Graves: Fans Should Have High Expectations Of WWE
Corey Graves believes it's up to WWE to meet high fan expectations
Corey Graves believes fans should have high expectations of WWE, and it's down to the company to meet them.
"You should come in with high expectations, particularly in this day and age," Graves said on WWE After The Bell.
"This is WWE, we are the worldwide leader in sports entertainment. WWE is a global entity. It is okay to have high expectations for everything we do. The onus is on us as WWE to provide the fans and meet their expectations because it's not like we're this fledgling thing. 'Oh, there are growing pains. We're gonna get there.'"
Graves mentioned that he sometimes understands when fans are unhappy with certain things WWE present on television because of how passionate the fanbase is: "Sports entertainment fans are right up there with your comic book fans or hardcore music fans or people that really care and live and die by this stuff," he said.
"I believe that the weight is on our shoulders, and I don't think it's unfair. Yes, there are variables and circumstances. Yes, we're beholden to advertisers and business contracts. There is a lot more that goes into making the stew that most fans don't realize, nor should they have to. Our fans should be able to sit down on Monday night at 8 p.m. ET and get lost in a show. That's on us. We should always be presenting ourselves and forcing ourselves to meet the expectation of the fan as opposed to saying, 'this is what we're giving you, you either like it or don't like it."
