Ruthless Aggression Era>Attitude Era
Okay am I the only one who believes that? Really am I? Here's why I think so if you want my reason:
1)Storylines were over the fucking top! Seriously, Ministry breaking in McMahon's house? Undertaker burning Stephanie's Teddy Bear?
2)This is a wrestling product right? Am I the only one who disliked the Attitude Era style of wrestling, sorry BRAWLING. How many wrestling matches did we get? It was nothing but slamming guys into tables, chairs, punch and stomp, punch and stomp, punch and stomp, interference and to top it off a finisher.
3)Title reigns. How the heck do people complain bout short title reigns and in the same voice praise the Attitude Era? Kane had a 24 hour title reign in 98. Undertaker had one in 99. Really wtf? Also title reigns lasted no longer than 2-3 months, pretty much like today.
4)Divas. What were there purpose besides flashing the crowd?
5)Midcard division. The IC title was a joke. Where the fuck did the lighheavyweight title disappear to? And the hardcore title well was the hardcore title.
Now let's look at Ruthless Aggression.
1) Storylines were kept simple yet still had meaning to them. HHH and HBK, Angle and Edge, Rock and Lesnar etc
2)Wrestling at it's finest! Really compare the 15 minutes of shit we saw in the Attitude Era to the 15 minutes of the Ruthless Aggression. Wrestling Ruthless Aggression>Attitude
3)Title reigns had more meaning. Now I would admit the Undisputed championship never had an owned for more than a month after Jericho lost it. But when Lesnar got it, things were good.
4)Divas were much better! Really Jaz, Molly, Lita> Debra, Sable, Terri
5)Midcard division at it's best. Tag teams such as Un-Americans, Evolution, World's Greatest tag team. List goes on. Also the IC title meant something!
So all in all I think Ruthless Aggression Era>Attitude. Now I know I'm probably alone on this but still at least I gave some reasons. And sure Rock and Austin left in 03 but what the fuck you want 'em to do? Wrestle till 50? People complain over and over they want new stars yet keep saying "Bring back Rock!, "Bring back Austin", "Bring back HBK". I don't get it.
