Just imagine how horrible past eras would have been with WWE's modern "booking"

- Hulk Hogan has just defeated Andre The Giant at Wrestlemania III and has successfully retained his world championship. His reward? Next week on Superstars he must face Andre The Giant and Bobby Heenan in a 2 on 1 handicap match. Why? No reason. Because that's the match. Fuck off. Don't ask.

- Triple H interferes in Stone Cold's match against The Rock by hitting him with a sledgehammer. Then he knocks out Rock with a pedigree. The next night on RAW, Stone Cold comes out all pissed as hell and swears to kick the living shit out of HHH. All of a sudden, Rock's music plays. He comes down to the ring and says that Triple H is all his and that he wants to be the one to lay the smack down on his candy ass. But wait... Vince's music hits. He tells both men that it will be put to a vote on AOL. Both men put aside their anger for the time being and conclude that this is in fact the most moral and fair way to decide.

- Million Dollar Man had last been seen shoving money down people's throats and bribing Sapphire away from Dusty Rhodes. The next week on Wrestling Challenge, Virgil is being assaulted so he comes to his rescue. Instant face turn. Why? No reason. Because that's how it is. Fuck off. Don't ask.

- Bret Hart feels he's been lied to and that he was promised a title shot against Shawn Michales. Only instead of getting what's owed to him, he's constantly passed over in favor of guys like Undertaker and Sid. That's it, Bret Hart has had enough. He walks out to the ring and begins to talk shit about Shawn, so President Monsoon tells Bret that he if wants a title shot against Shawn Michaels... that tonight.... he will have to beat... Shawn Michaels.

Re: Just imagine how horrible past eras would have been with WWE's modern "booking"

Lets try attitude era booking on The golden era

Hogan beats Andre for the title at wrestlemania 3. they have five more title matches on Superstars where they swap the title on a weekly basis. none of the matches end clean, and two are ladder matches. Then hogan turns heel and reveals he and bobby heenan have been working together the entire time, and the entire feud was just to fuck with andre's head. andre (still heel) continue to wrestle hogan until the title is vacated when Hogan and andre pin each other somehow. Savage announces the fans love him and he will be turning fighting for them. he wins a tournament ending with him bashing Steamboat's head open and slapping the shit out of elizabeth, announcing hes teaming up with jack tunney. also elizabeth is pregnant with junkyard dog's foot

you know what. fuck it. that still sounds epic

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.

During the New Generation Era we wouldn't have had all those over the top gimmicks, including the good ones, like Undertaker.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

Imagine the complaints during those eras...

"Man, the title switched hands so much between Foley and Rocky, Remember when Bret held it and it was important? None of the titles matter today!".

The booking in the Attitude era was the worst. It was just covered up by superb talent. The problem with today's era is not the booking. It's the 20 different titles and the pg content that Attitude fans aren't use to dealing with. And the product being overexposed with so many hours a week on tv just makes all the issues very noticeable.

Lol you know when you put it that way... the Attitude Era was kind of wacky wasn't it? But in it's defense, at least things were driven. Sure a bunch of crazy shit happened, but we also knew why it was happening. With today's product, nothing is ever explained or justified. Things just happen because they happen and on we go from week to week.

Alberto Del Rio successfully defends his title at Mania so the next night he's put in a handicap match against the man he just beat and his manager. WHY!?!?!?!? The guy did nothing wrong! And to make matters worse, he loses his title because of Dolph cashing in his briefcase!

The Macho Man drops the WWF Championship @ Royal Rumble 1989 to Bruno Sammartino.

Danny Davis becomes Jack Tunney's assistant for no reason.

Brain Busters announce they are splitting as a team on an episode of Superstars. Two weeks later they are teaming again without reasoning why.

Hulk Hogan vs. Ultimate Warrior occurs on WWF All American Wrestling for no reason in mid 1989.

Earthquake crushes Hulk Hogan on Superstars. Several weeks later he is jobbing to Koko B Ware. By the time Royal Rumble 1991 occurs he is is a comedy babyface big man with a farting problem.

1-2-3 Kid pins Razor Ramon on Raw. It is never mentioned again.
