Re: Analyze This: Hardcore Respect
Probably the reason why Hardcore is no longer respected is because the storylines and rivalries have gone out of the picture and there are only chairs, tables, ladders, nailstacks and what not being used around without any reason.
Ideally, the hardcore match should come in a situation where the rivalry is peaking and the fans believe that the two guys want to kill each other in kayfabe and inflict the kind of pain involved in a hardcore match.
