Re: Why do we continue to watch?

Has anyone here noticed that Vince McMahon has reinvented wrestling a dozen times, and created a bunch of different characters? If he didn't create them, he at least created the platform for them. WCW sat on Undertaker, Triple H, and Stone Cold. When Kurt Angle asked Ric Flair which company to sign with, Flair said to sign with Vince, because Vince would come up with a character, and sure enough we have the condescending role model that (along with The Rock) made me a wrestling fan. The entire sports entertainment model comes from Vince, with the exception of the nWo, which is with guys that Vince made into recognizable stars. If you don't want his cartoon world of crazy characters, go watch ROH or Japanese wrestling. If you want a crappy version of sports entertainment, watch TNA. Vince is the reason we're all fans.

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
Del Rio, Orton, Bryan, Ziggler, Wyatt, Usos, Cesaro, Mysterio, Kane
DGPW: Doi, Yoshino, Tozawa, Yamato, Dragon Kid, BxB Hulk, Ricochet, Super Shisa
