What do you hate about the WWE now?
 
What thing do you hate most about the WWE now compared to the Attitude Era?

Storylines? Wrestlers? The wrestling?

For me it has to be a mixture of the above. I think the direction it took define all three of the above, however it seems to have disregarded its success in the 90s. Watching it now makes me crease, I watch wrestling to be entertained and it certainly doesn't.

Least favourite wrestler - Sheamus.

Just about everything. Punk has been champ for much too long and I haven't liked him since he lost that purity act and dissed Mysterio. I can't stand Sheamus, del Rio or Ryback. Cena has a new angry bent to him that does not suit him. But they're using Show properly and Sandow is a gem. I wish some billionaire would start a new fed and raid WWE if that's possible. If I could do that I'd take Sandow, Ziggler, Orton, The Prime Time Players, The Shield, Show, Kingston and McIntyre. I might be forgetting some. And I'd get rid of Cole and Lawler. JBL on commentary is great.

During the "Attitude Era" some very talented performers worked with creative to put some hilarious shows. The exchanges between Austin and the Rock broke me up. Now you have this "Yes, Yes," "No, No," or "AWSOME". There's no one with the talent of Kurt Angle. The only great mic man is Sandow, imo. I hope he gets pushed to the top. Good thread, OP.

The biggest beef I have is that heels don't feel threatening at all. They hardly ever win, and when they do, it's never clean, so we never feel like the face has to actually overcome anything, they just fight a bunch of pussies.

Lack of continuity - when Nexus disappear without explanation, The anonymous GM just disappear, just countless angles, Vince getting fired as GM then comes back as COO?

WWE pushing guys because they're IWC heroes - Ziggler, Punk, Bryan are not charismatic enough, are not getting over enough but WWE obsess on these IWC loudmouths at the arenas and don't understand that these guys are not ready or good enough to main event.

Lack of gimmicks and catchphrases - There is no Austin 3:16, there is no Mankind these days. Just boring guys like Punk and Ziggler.

Storylines which never fulfill their potential. The Nexus practically had the modern day 'Higher Power' Storyline in 2010, and everything was just randomly dropped.

Non-sensical storylines with very little follow through

The wrestlers themselves are nowhere near as talented as the guys who came out of the territories

Lack of character development

Poor utilization of the roster (very few storylines for mid/lower card wrestlers)

Lack of versatility in today's WWE wrestlers, all of them come off like they are the same, almost robtotic compared to other eras

The "top" matches are a solid level below the top matches of the past

No big time feel to any of the main events

Most crowds are dead compared to those of the past

Same guys stay on top constantly

Storylines are way too predictable

Bad storylines are the worst thing about WWE. They have decent wrestlers, they just don't use them well.

Michael Cole is a deal breaker for me. I could sit through awful storylines, but not with Cole, and for SURE not when they involve him directly.

I like this era better than the attitude era in almost every way. Sorry, I am just a WRESTLING fan.

Re: What do you hate about the WWE now?
 
The wrestling is the least of their problems. They have fantastic athletes and solid wrestlers imo but none of them have the charisma of guys like Rock, Austin, Hogan, Flair, Savage etc. The storylines also suck and most of the good ideas for gimmicks and storylines have already been done so they are kind of screwed to some degree. The announcing is also bad. King isn't what he used to be and Michael Cole is no JR.
