I don’t get that. I’ll always go back to Brock vs Taker at Mania 30. I was legit stunned when Brock won. It was a favorite moment of mine, because I’ve never been a huge Taker fan after the Ministry days and I love Brock. If i had known Brock won going in, the shock wouldn’t be there. The reaction wouldn’t be there.
Same as when Seth cashed in the MITB. The people in my house were going crazy, either for or against Rollins. It was an atmosphere that would not have happened, if we knew the result.
I can look at my favorite hockey game ever, game 7 of the 2013 series between the Leafs and Bruins. The Leafs were winning 4-1 with less than 11 minutes to go. I thought for sure the Bruins were finished. What happened next was one of the greatest comebacks I ever have and probably ever will witness, as a sports fan. If I had been spoiled, that epicness is not there.
This is not just an issue here, but other wrestling forums, TV show forums, etc. I get that they want clicks on their articles, but why are here places trying to push away people, by telling them not to come, until after they watch something? I’d want all the discussion I could get.
If you put 2 threads in front of me, one that says “Spoilers win tag titles” or “Rollins and Murphy win tag titles” I’m more likely to open the first one, even if I already know the result. Same as if a death on a show happens.
