I don't know why it's turned off for you
I think they turn off the search function and several other features during PPVs and RAW.
Anybody know of any examples of feuds in BTB that are old school vs. new school? Almost like a civil war type thing with in a brand between the older generation and the newer generation? Just looking for ideas/inspiration, I would be grateful for any guidance/help.
Don't know if you're referring to a stable war or not, but the first one of these that pops in my head for some reason is actually the Michaels/Van Dam feud DDMac did way back when, which I think I have on file here
. If you are looking for stables, you can try to jump in the time machine and find the beginnings of Wolfy's "New Wave" stable led by a then 'Legend Killer' Orton. They wound up retiring Flair, so that possibly got worked in there somewhere. Also regarding stables, I'm sure Szumi might have done something along those lines with the NWO at some point or another. Or I could just be wrong on that.

I realize that Ryan Reeves may not be able to play that character in real life, however, I've been putting a lot of thought into this and I feel I am onto something awesome. My only conflict is that I feel maybe you guys might think the idea is silly, or unrealistic. My question is, is there anyone that would be interested in reading something like this? It would also include John Cena leaving the WWE to pursue an acting career.
It does seem a tad silly to me. But I'm also all for trying different things. If you think you can pull it off, I think DC said it best a few pages ago - just do it.
You can judge in theory how 'awesome' or 'silly' the idea/character may seem, but until it's actually done, no one can completely judge.
Although if you're gonna have Cena up and leave to act (I'm assuming because you just don't want to book him and I partially don't blame you), at least use him for something and don't have him just spontaneously leave. I think that's more unrealistic than an intelligent Ryan Reeves character. If you don't wanna book someone, at least write them off in some way to put someone over. Kill him off. Have him be the first person RyBane and his League of Shadows/Shield take out to establish themselves or something.
