Younger people skewing more towards Youtube and mobile stuff is probably also related to how terrible WWE is for consistency so its a lot easier to digest short clips or Hulu than sit and watch 3 hour RAWs every week.
You can pretty much say that about every era. People grew out of the Hogan era like they did the Attitude era
