WWE recently sent out a survey to the members of their WWE Fan Council mailing list, asking for feedback regarding spoiler results to their taped shows.
The questions were;
*Which of the following statements best describes your thoughts on online “spoilers” for taped WWE TV programming (e.g., Smackdown, Main Event, etc.)?
– I frequently seek out spoilers in advance, as they help me decide whether or not to watch the show
– I frequently seek out spoilers in advance, but I still watch the shows no matter what they say
-I don’t typically seek out spoilers, but I don’t mind when the WWE reveals a rare historic moment in advance
-I don’t seek out spoilers at all. I want to be completely surprised by everything on the show
*Should WWE.com reveal information about title changes on taped WWE TV programming before they air?
– Yes, fans should know about title changes as soon as possible
-Yes, but clearly mark it as a SPOILER, so fans can avoid it if they wish
– No, WWE.com should wait until after the shows air to reveal title changes
*Where do you most often view “spoilers” for taped WWE TV programming (e.g., Smackdown, Main Event, etc.)?
– Bleacher Report
– Social media sources
– Other online wrestling websites
– I do not read spoiler material that reveals results of WWE programming
*If you view spoilers regarding upcoming taped WWE TV programming, are you more inclined to tune in to that program when it airs, or less inclined?
– More inclined to tune in
– Less inclined to tune in
Will be interesting to see if the results change how WWE report on spoilers from their taped shows.
