Stephanie McMahon Discusses WWE Listening To Their Fans

She recently did an interview with talkSPORT...

The December 17th, 2018 episode of Monday Night Raw began with Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Shane McMahon, and Triple H all gathered inside the squared circle. They each admitted that they had not been doing a good enough job of listening to WWE's fans and as a result, their product had worsened. They explained that they were going to do their best to change and try to listen to their audience more.

Stephanie McMahon said: "We’re out here tonight because we haven’t been doing a very good job for you lately, we haven’t been doing the one thing my father has always taught us to do and that’s listen to our audience. We’ve let middle managers air their petty grievances, we’ve been suffocating our Superstars, and all of that is going to change and it starts tonight."

Many fans hoped this would signify a change of direction in WWE, and provide more compelling professional wrestling for everybody. There have been moments throughout the year when WWE has embraced listening to their audience, such as WrestleMania 35 when Kofi Kingston, Becky Lynch, and Seth Rollins emerged victorious in their title matches.

Many in the wrestling world continue to be critical of WWE, however, and believe the company still needs to listen to its audience more. This is reflected by Raw's ratings, as viewership of the flagship show is currently at non-holiday record lows.

During a recent interview with talkSPORT, Stephanie McMahon addressed listening to their audience. She admitted that the company was doing its best to understand what fans want from a professional wrestling show in 2019, but that they still had to improve.

Stephanie said: "We are certainly doing our best to listen to our audience and give them what they want. I think we always need to be listening."
