In terms of starpower, that period in 2011 just after losing Edge and just before CM Punk's shoot where freaking R-Truth was challenging for the WWE Championship, that would probably have this beat. Like, they weren't trying with new people at all around that time. Now we can say we have Sheamus, Daniel Bryan and other names that have been around. At that time they just didn't care, and were content with Cena vs (insert random challenger) for however many months until The Rock returned to face him. I shudder to think what the rest of that year would have been like if CM Punk had just done his bit and left.

Be honest dude.

Do you seriously think Undertaker and HBK by 1996 were bigger stars than Randy Orton by 2012?

From Extreme Rules till today it has probably been the worst 8 months I've ever witnessed. But I think it will pick up next year. It has to.

I think WWE are in a good place right now, far more so than last year, at the coming Wrestlemania the talent available is better than there has been for years. Guys like Ziggler and Bryan are getting better and better. There are many exciting prospects that have been brought through in the last 12 months, Cesaro, Ryback, Sandow... and to top it off, John Cena isn't quite as invincible any more.

Felt like it last night.

There have definitely been worse years though.

Pretty much this. Last night seemed pretty bad, but I've certainly seen worse over the years.

It's a weak roster in terms of star power, but this period is by far better than 2009-10 shitty year of guest hosts and whatnot. 2011/12 has been good in my view. There are a lot of exciting new talents for the smart fans. Lack of starpower is more so WWE's problem. I don't care about most of the guys being away, even Edge, who's one of my all time favorites.

Default Re: Is this the worst ever period in the WWE

Yes, it is. WWE is very terrible right now for a few reasons:

1. Over-pushing of certain wrestlers *coughAJcough* She's a prime example. In 2012 her push has done more to hurt them than anything else. She's been made to look more important than the WWE title and MITB contract. She can't act. She's average looking at best and has never had a good match on WWE TV. She needs to go back to the divas division as she has the Midas touch in reverse...everything she touches turns to shit.

2. A lot of the younger guys just don't have "it". Be honest...are you really willing to pay $50+ bucks a month to buy ppv's headlined by Dolph Ziggler? Come on now...really? Dolph Ziggler...you might stream ppv's but I highly doubt he will ever convince people to shell out their hard earned money just to watch him.

3. The Storylines are trash. Horrible...God-awful non sense shit that's just ridiculous to even watch.

Until they fix this mess then things are only going to get worse.

Undertaker & HBK in '96 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Randy Orton...ever

Taker and HBK were main eventers in 1996. Randy Orton was once a main eventer and multiple time world champion, but for the past year has had absolutely no direction whatsoever. He's been in the upper mid-card for around a year now. Undertaker and HBK were main eventers in 1996 and at no time in the 90s ever went back to the upper midcard.

Am I the only one who thought 2007 was a good year? Sure, the Chris Benoit situation overshadows everything that happened that year but when I remove the Benoit situation, I think it was a good year. Of course they had some shitty moments such as the Texas Bull-Rope match at The Bash, HHH's shitty return at SS, but yeah.

Or maybe it's because I was 11 at the time, I don't know.
