Re: Just imagine how horrible past eras would have been with WWE's modern "booking"
I might be in the minority but I feel WWE's modern booking is tailor made for WWE pre-Attitude Era.
This kind of booking wouldn't be frowned upon in an era where not a large majority of the fans were hip to the inner workings of the business and the fact that WWE (at least from 1985-1994) was 5 PPV's a year, MAX. RAW wasn't 3 hours and you didn't have to depend on the big stars to come and pop a big rating. Storylines were given time to develop. And in those days, for the most part, the talent was deeper.
The only horrible past era with modern booking would have been the Attitude Era but at the same time, I don't think WWE would utilize the current booking the same way in the Attitude Era.
If you take everything (roster, commentators, fans, mindstate) from this era and place it in other eras, yeah, it might be bad but I don't think it would have been as bad as what really happened post-Hulkamania and pre-Attitude Era.
