... Yeh, that's pretty much it, but Raw back then was a great show (apart from the The Patriot getting a WWE Title shot which was just stupid and only fed Bret's anti-American gimmick).

John Cena in 2012 is a bigger star than Bret Hart of late 1996.

Randy Orton and CM Punk of 2012 are the equivalents of Undertaker and HBK in 1996.TBH,Randy Orton has achieved much more by than they achieved by 1996.

Raw was pretty bad/worse than now around late 1996 till Austin came up and started changing the direction of the company.



WWF believed in new talent like Austin,Rock and HHH while WWE is also starting to push new guys.Let's hope something good happens this year.

Re: Is this the worst ever period in the WWE

Stopped watching for a lot of years, but 2012 is surely one of the worst years considering the total lack of star power. When you remove the few matches from HHH,Rock,Undertaker,Lesnar and you get the picture.

In the same time the year is excellent when you take the amount of emerging new talent such as Sandow,Cezaro,The Shield etc.

This is not the worst year and 2013 will be better.

Re: Is this the worst ever period in the WWE

I don't like how everybody find excuses to the WWE. They are maybe in a transitionnal period but come on. That's why they can't do great storyline ? That's why THE ROCK VS JOHN CENA GET ONE OF THE WORST RIVALRY OF ALL TIME ????
It was mediocre, that's all and there is no excuse to this. The booking was bad because it was bad

Re: Is this the worst ever period in the WWE

I lived through 1995, 2002, 2007, & 2009, so it is really hard for me to say that this is the worst year in company history.

Re: Is this the worst ever period in the WWE

I think 2003 was even worse, especially considering the talents they had that year.

Winning the Royal Rumble consecutively twice?

Stealing the show at Wrestlemania 3 times in a row?

Having a 5-0 undefeated Streak at Wrestlemania?

You mean 2003, right?

And yeah, too bad about 2007. It had a great first 3 months.
