10 WWE Secrets That WWE Doesn’t Want You To Know!

4. The Purpose Of Referees

You wicked you silly goose they call the matches, count the pinfall and relay the rules to the wrestlers during matches. Well no actually when you see a referee talking to a wrestler he’s communicating between the two wrestlers for them, telling them what spot or big move is going to happen next. Yes every now and then you will see them counting on the ropes or Mike Chioda saying you can’t do that. But about 80% of them is playing messenger and they have a glass chin.


5. Gimmicks

Gimmick is an inside a wrestling term that basically means whatever a wrestler portrays. Dean Ambrose’s gimmick is that of a crazy unstable madman, Stone Cold’s gimmick was an anti authority rebel who attacked the boss constantly and Stardust gimmick was…well you you get the point. What WWE doesn’t want you to know is that these aren’t the real personality traits of the people, they’re just acting so Dean Ambrose isn’t actually crazy woohoo oh and the names they’re usually not real either sorry Michael McGillicutty.

6. Dropping Ratings


This one is also tricky as the WWE has skillfully tried to turn this one around. You know in between segments when you might see something like last week’s Raw was more viewed than the NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, Olympics, Kentucky Derby and all combined. Well while the ratings for the were good based on TV standards they don’t want you to realize how much they’ve dropped since the glory days of the Attitude Era. The year 2000 the average viewership was around 6 million people and it would often go much higher than that. Well nowadays they only get between 2 and 3 million probably two and a half million on average. It’s not insane, but compared to the highs of the company WWE does not realizing how many more people used to watch compared to nowadays.

7. The Entire Past

By this I mean any storyline that happened before about two weeks ago. WWE hides its past that pretty much every single turn. Stone cold made to cry from Kurt Angle’s threats of being thrown off a bridge nope he’s a badass again, no crying! Not to mention the gimmick changes when Husky Harris turns into Bray Wyatt or Michael McGillicutty turns into Curtis Axel. WWE expect us to completely forgot they ever existed even though they look the exact same I mean unless you’re getting facial re-constructive surgery they’re gonna look the same.
