Your problem is that you're going to Noxxic.

The ONLY thing that every class forum agrees on is that Noxxic is terrible.

Sims and the like generally only reflect what kind of damage you theoretically could be putting out on a Patchwerk style dps fight in perfect conditions. Very few fights are like this, and very few ever will be again. That said, it does sound like you need a little work optimizing your rotation. While we are a hard class to squeeze out perfect numbers, we're one of the easier classes for getting decent ones.

A 2h weapon will lower your maximum damage a bit, but with that weapon it should be fairly reasonable to start squeezing out about 60-64k damage (for an 'average' player which is what I consider myself. The best monks around here could probably pull about 85+ in your gear). So look around, read some guides, ask questions, and get in some time on the practice dummy and dungeons/lfr to try to get your priorities into muscle memory. That said, you probably still pull better numbers than 90% of monks I run across, so you're not doing too bad!

You are well under expertise cap and marginally over hit. As a WW you want both at 7.5%.

You also really need to gem your gear, enchant those last few items and lose the pvp gloves.

Doing those above things will make a significant difference in your numbers.
