I'm inclined to agree. Can't stand HD stuff. I loved the Raw set that was around in like 2002 or whatever.. it was simple, yet incredible. When you saw that set, you instantly knew it was RAW. And when you saw SD, it was the same deal.

Where's the individuality? Where's the instantly recognizable stage? Gone..

Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to complain TOO much. But I do have my gripes.

Re: Can we ditch the HD stage already.

This is by far the worst thread on this forum. People complaining about the awesome HD will do me. Nah lets bring back the paper mâché fist that looks first class. The days of underhround grunge rock wrestling garbage is finished. Shame on WWE for moving with the times.

Lack of Creativity = Moving with the times ?

Actually, you might be on to something there considering the lack of creativity in pop culture right now.

Re: Can we ditch the HD stage already.

The sets used to be so artistic back then. I couldn't wait to see how each set for the PPVs looked like on Sunday Night Heat back in 1999-2000. Those days are long gone, now it's just the old same set, all they got to do is switch the display to RAW > SD > Superstars > PPV etc. you get the point. I understand the money issue but that still...

I always thought changes to sets signified different eras in WWE but that's just me I guess. It gives the shows a different feel, something they could use at this point...

Re: Can we ditch the HD stage already.

think the stage is great hated the last on, this one it looks epic when the rocks titantron comes on, think its just nostalgia for some of you guys, because lets be honest this stage is better than the one they used in the AE

Re: Can we ditch the HD stage already.

As an old school wrestling fan I am a big fan of the first wwf raw set 93-96, then the AE one from 97-02? I really liked the first smackdown,the first WCW Nitro set was also so cool.All of these were edgey,cool and you knew that it was going to be unique as each one had there on set and feel about it.

I don't mind the set today as much as some of the others since the AE. There was a period from 03-07 where I could not bare to watch raw due to the dull lighting that wwe set up on the crowd.

I think the set of today is wwe's way of making there product look as big as possible and as much like a wrestlemania each week while saving costs at the same time.

Re: Can we ditch the HD stage already.

Get rid of HD set and get red and blue tape for the ropes. Get rid of the lights on the crowd too. It is the little things that can make a product look all that much better. But at the end of the day if it stops WWE from spending then they don't care. It doesn't bother me too much but it would make it look fresh than it is.

I actually hate the odd amount of trons and screens on it.

I don't mind it much anymore but early on it really annoyed me that they used white ropes for RAW. I understand that they tape Superstars first so they don't bother but they should really be RED FOR RAW!!! lol
I called it "white rope RAW" for awhile and it just really bothered me lol
