I think some people just donít have the time. If itís pay-per-view, fair enough, Iíll watch it, but Iím sure Iím not the only who skips through matches on Raw or SmackDown because they donít have the time (or the patience, maybe) to sit through the dull stuff. I confess thatís what I did with Raw last night, even missed out Sheamus/Morrison IV, even though I hear it was pretty good. Itís a shame, but I didnít have all that much choice. Though, I wonít complain about having to watch a match if I do
have the time, seeing as they do indeed tell the story that (most of the time) the feud has been leading up to.
Match writing isnít hard. It just takes a bit of commitment to stick through it, imo, especially if you canít really be bothered because you donít like the guys in the match or something similar. Once you get going with a match, it can be great fun. Plus the sense of satisfaction you get from writing a really good, long match that you know you'd enjoy watching on TV or if you know it would keep someone watching. If someone doesnít have all the time in the world, thereís no point writing out all the boring stuff in a match from a weekly show though, they should just recap it.

I really hope Iím not as grumpy as you when Iím older.
