Re: Jim Duggan says Wrestling Doesn’t Need Beer-Swilling and Middle Finger Gestures
He's right to an extent. They didn't need this, 30 years ago. Wrestling (WWF) really popular back in the 80's & early 90's, and the product was very similar to the one we have today, brother!
But people got sick of it thus why in 94~95 it had a major downfall, and that's where Attitude Era took place, it was something different.
Another reason is that fans of the previous generation regarding the present one, can't get over the fact that their favorite wrestlers aren't on TV anymore, and even though some of the newer guys are as good, and maybe even better than some of the ones they grew up watching, they refuse to accept such thing. But like all generations new fans are born, and I'm sure this one won't be any different
And the same thing is happening today. It was decent while it lasted, but now it's just getting stale. All we can hope for is a major product change in the future, which I think we are not going to see anytime soon sadly.
