I agree with DualShock 100 percent. There is no reason that signing to another company should mean that you essentially cease to exist in the WWE Universe. The fact that Hulk Hogan isn't in their "Then Now Forever" opening is ridiculous. Hulk Hogan is the most recognizable man in wrestling history and I doubt the WWE would be anywhere near as successful as it is today without him.

I'm not sure how they would go about mentioning championship wins in other companies because I'm not sure where the cutoff would be. A TNA or NWA title carries prestige, but what about those wrestlers that have won titles in tiny unknown indy promotions?

Another big thing that I dislike about WWE is the lack of blood. I'm not one of those "PG SUX! BLOOD ROCKS BRING BACK ATTITUDE ERA!" people, but I think that blood is an important part of wrestling. Heated feuds just don't seem right when they end without a single drop of blood spilled. The decline of blading really takes away from "hardcore" type matches like HIAC and Elimination Chamber. The fact that things like Cena getting busted open against Brock get so much of a reaction show how much the lack of blood is hurting the product.

The fact that from 5 hours of WWE TV every week I only watch about 1 of those hours.

The idiot fans who ruin surprise appearances by bringing in posters and chanting their name long before they come out.

The ref taking a minute to count to five on certain rope moves.

The next thing I hate with wrestling is the threatment of former wrestlers. Hulk Hogan made WWE what it is and Kurt angle is maybe the best pure wrestler and the total package who ever set foot in a WWE ring and both are not even in the WWE opening intro (then, now, forever) or the opening before.
In every other sports it would be ridiculous to have a video package of the history and not having both the biggest star and the most gifted athlete in the history featured.
If both Angle and Hogan return to WWE they will be featured as the biggest legends who ever competed in this promotion and No Holds Barred as the greatest movie that didn't win an Oscar.

And before someone replies "they ignore wrestlers because they are not in WWE anymore or are in other promotions", I know that but that is the point that I hate, this "every man for himself" attitude by some promotions instead of appreciating former talent.
People bust their ass 10-20 years for WWE to make this company, their championship and their biggest PPV what it is today and they are not even featured in their video packages.


They probable do appericiate the past talent, but that doesn't mean that they are required to constantly mention what they have done or continously so their clips. You don't see the NFL, MLB, NBA, or NHL acknowledging them constantly on air or showing their clips. Just because they constantly don't mention or show their clips on TV doesn't mean that they dont.

I'm for as many people getting over as possible, it would improve the show and the more over people there are, the more avenues there are to push new talent, yes, your favourites are more likely to get pushed if there are more over people to feud with.

WWE's propaganda machine. The way they spew out crap glorifying WWE. The way they paint other promotions very badly like ECW and WCW in the Rise and Fall dvds, Or the fact that John Cena has to be in every WWE.com list. There's plenty more but I just think WWE's self praise is tiresome at times.

The fact that WWE/Vince cannot get out it's/his comfort zone that is John Cena being above everything and refusing to take the risks of trying to build new stars.

My biggest complaint is probably the negative stigma associated with professional wrestling, especially in the United States, to the point where when a non-fan finds out that you're a fan, it is reason for ridicule. When most people think of "wrestling" it is synonymous with "WWE" which means that they automatically think lesser of you & assume that you're an idiot. You have to deal with things such as friends, family or even strangers questioning why you never "outgrew" that phase (also an argument against people that play video games or read comic books) like it is a childish activity.

"Wrestling" is basically a dirty word & a lot of fans, myself included as I am now into my thirties, are embarrassed to acknowledge our enjoyment of the business. It is certainly a faux pas subject to discuss publicly outside of professional wrestling events. Even if someone just does something as innocuous as wear a pro-wrestling t-shirt into public, if anyone else recognizes the shirt, they will almost certainly be deemed white trash or of the lowest common denominator intelligence. It is frustrating & is 100% the fault of Vince McMahon.

There is a reason why die-hard pro-wrestling fans seek discussion, refuge almost, on the outskirts of the internet. We have been cast out of society, like Mad Max, as we are just roaming around waiting to find our Bartertown.
