Re: Is this the worst ever period in the WWE

2012 had a lot of good matches, but when you treat guest stars(HHH,Taker,Brock, Rock) as bigger stars than your current roster it leads to people not giving a crap about the active talent.

Re: Is this the worst ever period in the WWE

To answer the OP's question, YES. This IS the worst ever period in the WWE. Alot of people are making the excuse that the WWE are in a transition period hence why things are the way they are. Transition period or not, the product is at its worst and has been for an extremely long time now. Ask yourself truthfully are you ENTERTAINED when you watch WWE now? We are watching it out of habbit and every week it just goes downhill even more.

This is actually a bit sad for me considering I used to be a WWF/E addict. Couldn't stop watching wrestling ALL THE TIME. I used to be on here every single day without fail discussing the wwe with fellow fanatics. Ok I am 25 going on 26 and have gradually grown out of wrestling, but whats even worse is that I actually have no interest in WWE at all. That is very shocking compared to how I used to be. The WWE right now is just NOT FUN to watch. CM Punk's championship was just a complete bore fest. There was no stand out moments, no unforgettable championship matches, just a weak attempt to put cm punk in the history books.

I really hope WWE pick it up this year, fresh new start, fresh new ideas but after hearing their plans for Wrestlemania its looking its going to be the same old 'we've seen it all before'.
I will attempt to regain interest by coming on here more since everyone is so passionate and vocal about the WWE. Come on WEE!

My point is simple-The star power around 1995-1996 is worse than what it is present today.That's it
Nobody over the age of 10 thinks Orton is a bigger star than HBK. Orton is a glorified upper mid carder with no charisma who has a ton of title reigns because of a shallow talent pool and two world titles.

1995 is the worst year I can remember. You only had a handfull of talented guys and a bunch of stupid gimmicks. Mabel in a ppv main event nuff said.

Re: Is this the worst ever period in the WWE

I almost stopped watching the product in May/June because of the horrible Cena/Laurinaitis/Big Show feud and the atrocious AJ/Punk/Daniel Bryan angle, dunno why it receives plaudits.

I personally believe the time period from late 2008 to pre-guest hosts WWE had one of the most powerful and significant rosters in the past few years.

Anybody who says 2009 is bad hasn't seen any Smackdown from that year with Jericho, Rey, Punk, Hardy, Edge, and Morrison having great matches evey week.

True. However, Taker's return and his irrational obtaining of the World Heavyweight championship from CM Punk led to an insidious downfall of the quality of SmackDown. Since about early June, RAW had already began to deteriorate steadily.

Re: Is this the worst ever period in the WWE

The thing i don't understand is, why is Cena still being pushed? As of late he is back in is super cena role again, even though they did screw him hard by making him the first ever to lose a Money In The Bank contract (or a smart idea so he always be reminded even after 20 years that he was the first). They don't seem to realize people want to see wrestlers, not a superstar who does his standard set of moves and leaves again. They are also making him seem the only one doing anything for the Make A Wish Foundation, WWE is in hands with MAWF for 30 years.

The thing is, we are living in bad times, economy world wide is crap, money is harder to come by, also for the WWE, they realized how over they were with kids (just like in the 80's) and changed to PG to get more kids to watch the show so they can sell allot more merchandise, more merchandise sold = more money coming in and they can continue putting on shows (doing tours around the world is not cheap, if they don't sell than more half the tickets available they lose money on it). It's allot like the 80's, early 90's again, cashing in on kids, but the economy is gonna climb on its feet again and the WWE can take more risks. And let's hope they go TV14 again.

"It's that jolt of electric anticipation as the arena lights go down. It's the first jarring chord as the music hits and the pyrotechnics erupt into sparks that fade to a sizzle. It's that moment when an iconic Superstar emerges and the crowd is instantly ignited into a deafening roar. The fans can feel the adrenaline surging through the stands and they realize they are each a part of the spectacle, a part of the phenomenon, a part of the thrill of wrestling. Each of them will forever be able to say... I Was There, (for only $9,99").

TV is but not PPV. 2007 was worse for match quality on PPV. Some of the problems are guys being overused (Miz, Ryback and Del Rio). Other problems are just poor booking for feuds. It seems to be getting a little better but it is still very weak.
