HHH was a sledge hammer wielding bastard, Kurt Angle was more manly than Cena and he promoted drinking milk and being a all round "doofus'' out of the ring. Punk is the only real heel these days and even though I like Sndow and Cesaro they're just pantomime villains.
The crowd is shit as well 9/10 especially raw just passed. The only time Punk got heat was when he directly insulted the crowd. Thats not Punks fault imo it's that probably half the crowd are kids and their Mums there to see Cena and Shaemus. Why would a kid care about Punk insulting people about being unemployed or a drinker, smoker or layabout. Even Right to Censor used to get boo'd when they entered and no one gave a fuck about them really.
Also Zack Ryder, AJ, The Miz, Kofi Kingston
Totally agree about the child orientation; it's as if it has neglected its audience from recent years and totally changed the meaning of a wrestling organisation. Myself I guess like a lot of people switched off around 2005 (perhaps because of my age and growing up). It was still watchable then though.
