Re: Golden Era vs Attitude Era
Again I lived through Attitude so im probably biased and I would say that it was better than the Golden Era but I have gone back and watched some stuff, their's no question the Golden Era was very good but It reminds me of what WWE is trying to recreate today but in a very poor fashion in all honesty.
I've never really had any lingering appeal for the Hulkster and he really did dominate the industry back then for so many years but atleast back then you had other genuine megastars in the likes of Randy Savage, Roddy Piper, Mr T, Ultimate Warrior, Andre the Giant and so on.
The thing that appeals to me about the Attitude Era looking back is, it was never truly dominated by one person for anywhere near as other era's have. people point at 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin, yes he dominated 1998 and I'd say part of 1997 and 1999 combined make him the stand out guy as he was the main for that time period but then you look at it and its fair to say Shawn Michaels and Undertaker carried the ball for the early part of it, then 1999 and beyond you could say Austin along Mankind and The Rock and Undertaker carried it and 2000 it was The Rock and Triple H who took the ball and and then Stone Cold has his 'swanswong' heel run in 2001.
So all in all I just loved the variety of the Attitude Era and the fact I actually liked nearly everyone who they put in those spots, from The Rock and Stone Cold, to Kurt Angle and Jericho.
