With the way the WWE Universe reacted following last night's Royal Rumble match at the pay-per-view event in Philadelphia, it comes as no surprise that the WWE Network is not at its most popular.
With the WWE industry being as well-known and as supported worldwide as it is, you would have thought the response it was to receive during this month's Royal Rumble event, would be of a positive nature.
Vince McMahon and the men who matter at Titan Towers could hardly have expected such a widepsread backlash to what when down in Philadelphia, but its a big problem they must now address and quickly.
When the 30-man match came to light however, fans were left waiting for a change or interruption that they were never to receive. Ahead of the event, both Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan stood a good chance of winning if not lasting until the final few of the match, but for Bryan, this was not to be.
When Bryan was oddly eliminated over the top rope early it seemed there really was only ever going to be one winner in Reigns, with any chance of a clear challenger seemingly not present.
As a result, WWE received a huge amount of negativity from its fans, and although they managed to achieve the top hash tag on Twitter worldwide, it was not exactly the one they would have been hoping for from their fans.

'#CancelWWENetwork' was the top trending phrase on the social media site immediately after the show, which was only made worse by the fact that for the fans of the industry who actually wanted to cancel their subscription, they were unable to do so as the page had actually crashed.
In addition, there was also talk on Twitter that for those members of the WWE Universe who turned to phoning to cancel instead, they were told the workers were unable to help because the demand was too high for them to handle.
If last night's Royal Rumble match and result is not enough to go by to prove that WWE needs to listen to its fans as they ultimately are nothing without them, there is nothing else that is.
It is as though even minor changes in the outcome of specific wrestler's parts in the match such as Bryan, Dolph Ziggler and even Dean Ambrose, would have doubtlessly helped the reception of the pay-per-view event as a whole, a great deal.
For someone who excelled so well during his feud with Seth Rollins, the WWE's depiction of Dean Ambrose during the match appeared to prove how they are struggling all too much with which direction to take the wrestlers on their roster in.
