The ability in the ring is there, in fact it's better now then it was back in 2003.
HHH, Benoit, Angle, Eddie, Chavo, Edge, a healthy/younger Rey Rey, both Hardys, Tajiri, Noble, Helms, Brock, Taker, RVD, an active Booker T, Kidman, Ultimo Dragon, Akio, Flair, HBK, Christian, Jericho. All capable of putting on consistently good, entertaining matches and did that year. 2012 you have Punk, Dolph(who can't be taken seriously as a main eventer), Kidd, Kofi, Danielson, maybe ADR annnnd... Exactly. 2003 DESTROYS 2012 as far as ring work is concerned so don't even go there. One of the greatest pure wrestling matches of all time happened that year.
