Default Re: People say that the problem is all with the writing and the roster is amazing....

So, what the OP is saying is that... The roster that was predominantly shaped by one of the absolute biggest, most successful periods of time in the history of the wrestling industry, in which huge stars and midcard mainstay stars and legitimate drawing diva stars and stars of one sort or another, was a more visibly impressive roster than today's roster of largely woefully untapped talents? You don't say.

Guess what, it still comes down to writing and booking. Primarily. During the heart of the era that shaped so many stars that remained in wrestling in 2003, the writing and booking was strong. Guys like Kurt Angle were given character arcs that drew fans to them. Stars who were big in one promotion would go to another and be big. It was just a very different period of time than the one in which we are now.
