I currently own 200+ WWE DVDS, on a journey to collect them all over the next few years.

I'm not the kind of guy that needs to own a show 3 or 4 different times, or buy 2 or 3 different versions of the same DVD. If I own something once and have one physical WWE produced copy, I'm cool with it. For example, I don't own the original "Here Comes the Pain" one disc release, but I bought the three disc collectors edition, therefore crossing the one disc off my list of DVDs I have to purchase. I try to buy every new PPV , so I NEVER pick up the "best of" releases at the end of the year (barely own anything from 08-10 though, so those DVDs would be suitable for me), although I'm picking up the 2012 set because I failed to get NWO or SS 12 upon first release and I NEED DAT HHH-LESNAR MATCH.

Getting the WM anthology for Christmas, meaning that I won't be buying stand alone copies of WM's XV-X8 (own XIX and XX original copies) even if the blurs annoy the fuck out of me. Just a waste of money if I do say so myself. Owning things on disc and having your own physical library of matches is fucking BOSS. Plan on buying a region free DVD player eventually and purchasing a whole bunch of tagged classics just so I can get a ton of great matches in my library that I don't already own (Jericho-Trips being one of them).

Shame I'll never own my top 25 WWF/WWE matches ever due to Benoit TV matches being two of them

I remember when people said Dolph never would get any. That changed. He'll get some, they just have to work on it. Destroying jobbers like R-Truth isn't going to cut it though.
He's getting booked awesomely, it's just that he hasn't been in a meaningful storyline that will make people care about him. This R Truth feud as you said is getting him nowhere, he needs to get into a feud with an established face.

That's why I really hate that mysterio is with Cara right now, a Mysterio/Cesaro feud over the US title would put Cesaro over in a huge way, their matches would be awesome as well.

Ryback will do more harm to the industry within the next five years than anybody else. Mark my words. Feels like we're going back to the Hogan Era of big muscleheads with no talent getting pushed to the moon.

Cue the "VANILLA MIDGETS DON'T DWAW" hate. Oh wait, I forgot I was in a logical thread

I swear, the day some ratings/draw/buyrate marks get in here and ruin this sacred thread with their nonsense

Mysterio isn't up to the level he once was at, but I'm certain the matches would work vs Cesaro. No doubt getting the fans to care about him would. Mysterio ALWAYS gets a reaction.

Not too worried about Cesaro losing to Ryback. It puts Ryback over and Cesaro has been booked so well by the company that he's going to be fine following it. I would have preferred a Cesaro win, but I'm only being realistic in excepting what is expected.

Watching the HBK/Mankind match, I believe something was botched. Mankind reversed an irish whip sending Michaels to the turnbuckle. Michaels I guess was suppose to hit a crossbody but Mankind didn't follow. HBK looks legit pissed.

Edit: I do believe he's pissed, giving Mick some stiff elbow shots to the face.

It's Shawn during that era. Yeah, he's pissed.

Upcoming COKE days of '97. (probably then too)

I have so much concern about the future of the WWE that it's insane. It almost feels as if we're moving backwards as opposed to forward in the company philosophy. We had guys like Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart break the mold for what a champion should be, taking the focus off the big muscles and no workrate of the former champions like Warrior and Hogan. They broke the walls down for guys such as Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit to win the world titles based off of momentum, storytelling ability, and natural character development. Then Rey won the world title and it became a story of "okay, this is entertainment, the best storytellers are the guys that should be on top, the ones who work hard and naturally develop a connection with the crowd". Punk (the most muscle-less world champion there has ever been probably, still 220 LBs mind you) reassured me that wrestling was in a good place once again ; storytelling and the ability to naturally get over MATTERED again it seemed.

Now look at today. Daniel Bryan is one of the greatest storytellers and workers of his generation, making low card guys to main event guys look great inside the ring. The guy busts his ass off night in and night out, and eventually carves himself a role in the company as an extremely entertaining personality. One could argue that at one point during this year ; he was the hottest thing in the company by far. Fuck, they bury him down and down and down and he STILL gets killer reactions due to his capability as a double threat in the ring and on the microphone. One should figure that he would be in the main event scene right now with reactions like he has now right ? OH and I forgot to mention ; he did this and got THIS OVER while being fed nothing but garbage (oversaturation of AJ Lee into his storylines, losing in 18 seconds at Mania, being essentially squashed by the likes of Alberto Del Rio). How did he do it ? HARD WORK and natural fucking ability. Instead of being around where PUNK is, he's being treated as if he's on the level of Miz.

Let's look at Ryback, shall we ? This guy comes in and is immediately given matches (squashes) all lasting less than 10 minutes. He wins, he wins, and he wins. He starts to get more of a crowd reaction than the norm, but here's the thing ; WHO WOULDN'T GET A FUCKING REACTION IF THEY WON EVERY SINGLE MATCH. Wrestling may be kayfabe and "fake" , but I DAMN sure know that alot of casual fans gravitate towards winners. He got over due to the WWE PR machine that was behind him, and not on his standalone natural ability, which really fucking irks me. Here's a guy that can't wrestle a decent match to save his life, or cut a promo worth listening to, and basically if he chooses it seems like he can be the one to dethrone John Cena as the face of the company ? You're kidding me, right ? It's the most un-natural build to a wrestler that I've ever seen in my life, so bad that WWE is pushing him down our throats in main event matches already.

He walks to the ring, says "feed me more" , goes for under 10 minutes , and leaves. Two years from now, tell me how over that is. I say the WWE PR machine got him over for a reason ; take Ryback and put him in ANY other wrestling company in this world and tell him to succeed. Do the same with Bryan and you tell me who generates more revenue and is more entertaining for your company.

My point is simple ; Ryback got over because of his situation that will eventually grow stale and fizzle out (LOOK) , while Bryan got over(moreso than Ryback) DESPITE what the WWE gave him. Now with the introduction of another shitty musclehead (Langston) , it got me wondering what kind of philosophy the company is taking to their product, and why they're doing this.

They have to potential to KILL wrestling to alot of fans, me included. It's all personal opinion but, if they continue to feed gold to shit and shit to gold, how can they expect the audience to continue to buy into their product ?
