Re: WWE willl never get edgy again
The Attitude Era killed wrestling. It's so over-rated it's ridiculous. The AE fan boys (I'd argue a lot of them on the internet were barely born during the AE and are just 14 year olds who know it's cool to like Austin and Rock) look back with a nostalgic bubble, failing to remember that the WRESTLING MATCHES were for the most part AWFUL. Go back to the WWF in 1998/1999 and look at the actual WRESTLING that went on and for the most part it was terrible. They also had so many stupid gimmicks and angles that were edgy for the sake of being edgy. A lot of people look back and list the TLC matches as being amazing 5* matches. They were all glorified spot fests. They weren't believable at all, 80 percent of the time the guys in them were going for stupid ladder spots when they could have been grabbing the title belts - everyone loved it because they were basically watching a live version of Jackass.
