Some have not been given the opportunity but mostly, they can't hold a candle to what the early 2000s had to offer.
And as I've watched 2003 come to an end recently, I say I'd much rather go back and watch HHH's reign of terror where he put on poor matches every PPV over anything from today. And Smackdown was amazing in 2003 save for the McMahon bullshit and Mr. America aka Hulk Hogan being wasted in shitty storylines.
HHH vs Scott Steiner at the Royal Rumble is better than anything today has to offer, which is a joke in itself.
PPVs and SD haven't been bad, tbh. And I'd blame that on the writing more than anything.
