Don't know about others but Cm Punk's title reign is keeping me hooked. I also find Ryback and Ziggler's rise to the top interesting. I do kinda look forward to the show everyweek. The worst was the Over The Limit/No Way out period this year where Cena/Laurnaitis were feuding and Punk/Bryan had a very goofy/passable feud.

I'm not even talking compared to the attitude era, I mean compared to the New Generation era. The matches are all punch, kick, repeat until finish, there's no wrestling anymore. No wrist locks, no head locks, no body slams. Vertical suplexes etc those were the small nuances that help push a match forward and for kids they just fuckin look cool.
I'm glad it hasn't gotten to 1994-1995 levels of bad where we had midgets and assorted fuckery regularly but at least the matches being worked got the crowd into them. These muhfuckas today can't even entertain within the ropes, let alone on the mic. WWE needs to cut loose and let these guys work!
I disagree. If there's anything in WWE that has improved as of late, it is the wrestling. They are giving matches more time then they have in the last few years, and specially the main event match quality has been much better.
