Re: Why do some fans act above wrestling?
It's 99% an internet thing, but it's infuriating. So many members on here act like they are above being a wrestling fan. "The past was better, this guy sucks, this show sucked, he shouldn't be pushed", why bother coming on a wrestling forum, then?
Then there's the use of stupid internet termonologies that nobody used, ironically, before they spent their times on forums. "Facepalm at that last segment, epic fail of a match, dumb promo was dumb". That's the most annoying one. "____ is ____". I remember reading here after the CM Punk shoot, and somebody said "worked shoot is a work". Fuck off!
On top of that, these "fans" in particlar know jack-shit. They think they know the wrestling industry inside out; they know nothing. Nobody within the business would take any of their suggestions (90% of which are "this guy should turn heel") seriously, due to the extreme stupidity and naevity of their comments. They're always making incorrect predictions, saying people won't get over when they do (Bryan, Ryback), and burying people to try and make themselves seem like they know better than "stupid wrestling fans", when they are actually the most idiotic of all.
Just look at the Dean Ambrose thread. People taking joy at the fact that others are getting excited about the debut of a wrestler who hasn't appeared yet. You are not above somebody because they are excited over something that you are not. You are not smarter, you are not more knowledgable and you are not any cooler.
Now I'm not saying everybody is like this, not at all. But those who are should wise up and get over themselves.
Calm the hell down and eat a cookie. Yowzers.
The product does suck right now and I like to share my misery with others. Deal.
Card subject to change, I'll see you Tuesday.
