2007 and 2008 were alright imo as well as the first hald of 2009. When the Pay Per View names changed so did the company - for the worst.

It's not as bad as 1995.

YES! Someone hasn't brought up the "if you hate it why do you watch?" argument in almost two whole days! Finally another reason to copy/paste my rant!

It has been that way for at least a year, sans one or two moments, which don't make up for the ridiculous amount of time given to us that is just terrible programming but I would argue it has been that way since about 2005.

That being said, the one constant question that comes up over the years is "if it sucks, why do you watch it?" and then people/posters try to make comparisons to other television shows like it's the same thing. "If Will & Grace sucks, would you keep watching it?" It's not the same thing. Will & Grace doesn't dictate, control and influence the ENTIRE industry that it is in.

You know why, even when I know that it will be bad, that I continue to tune-in to WWE Monday Night RAW, without fail, damn near every single week? Because I am a wrestling fan and, like it or not, RAW dictates the wrestling world. It is the wrestling show. The A-show from the A-company. Without RAW, you're out of the bubble for a week. If I miss RAW, I don't feel like my opinion is as valid around the internet on various message forums. Without RAW, a lot of the podcasts and radio shows that I listen to don't make as much sense or are talking about things that I didn't see. Without RAW, I always feel like I'm a week behind and can't catch up until I watch RAW.

Also, there's always the possibility, even if it seems to get slimmer and slimmer over the years, that WWE does something incredible that you don't want to miss live. I missed the C.M. Punk shoot interview when it happened live and I kicked myself for missing it for quite some time. I had to watch it later on YouTube and it wasn't the same. I missed the immediate excitement over it and all my friends talking excitedly about it. Even just that first initial fifteen minute rush that came post-show, I hated myself for fucking up. I saw the debut of The Nexus live and it was great. I don't want to miss moments like those, when they happen live, regardless of how it plays out down the road.

I have been watching wrestling since, oh, 1987 or so I guess. I have been posting/talking about wrestling on-line since the end of 1998. Over that time, from 1987 to today, I have seen a lot of wrestling. WCW, ECW, TNA, AWA, NWA, Mid-South, Smoky Mountain, Memphis, AJPW, NJPW, CMLL, AAA, NOAH, FMW, XPW, Shimmer, SMASH, shit from the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's... you name it. The one constant is that RAW will be on TV on Monday night and for better or worse, most wrestling fans will be watching it.

THAT is why I watch RAW.
It's the same with pro-sports. If you're a fan of say, the Chicago Cubs, do you just stop supporting them when they have a losing season? Of course not.

@ Walk-In



Well said. We're wrestling fans, and WWE is a HUGE part of that. I wish people would stop with the "herp derp why keep watching if you think it's not good herp derp" argument. It's seriously lame as hell. It's a forum, it was made for people to bitch!

John Cena by 2012 is a bigger star than Bret Hart in 1996.It maybe an unpopular opinion but it is damn true.

HBK was "the man" in 96, Orton at no point in his career was the top guy so i would give the nod to HBK not to mention he ended up being a far bigger star/icon.

Cena stature is weird bc while hes the "it" guy of this generation WWE had to really force him down our throat to get him there. Bret was beloved as a face during that time and wasnt getting booed by half the crowd YET. I would also argue Brets overall legacy is better than Cena.

I honestly tried to watch an episode of Monday Night Raw a few weeks ago, I got about an hour in and realized I literally couldn't watch it anymore. I was not entertained at all. It is quite pathetic really. I don't watch WWE anymore because it's just too kiddish and boring. I just miss when we could have Bikini Contests, "Crimson Masks", and people could get on top of the Hell in a Cell.

That's a ridiculous statement. Comparing Cubs with a superstar that keeps losing makes sense, however, comparing it to the company? Ridiculous. The proper example would be "if American Football would completely change their meta-game and only rushing would be viable, would you stop watching?"

I fucking hate the don't like it, then don't watch argument.

Every single one of us here have a special relationship with Wrestling. It's not a need like food or water but it no doubt fills some sort of void. I would imagine we're all mostly adult males here or close to it and I would also imagine most of us have been watching since a young age. The fact of the matter is that we are all "programmed" to watch Wrestling... for whatever reason. We continue to watch the WWE because it's pretty much the only thing available.

Imagine you were traveling on the road for several hours on end and you were absolutely starving, but by chance you happen to stumble across the only diner for miles. What great luck right? Only thing is once you sit down, you realize that you hate everything on the menu. Would you still eat there? Would it be fair if I told you, "Don't like the food? Then don't eat it?"

Chances are you'll eat it, you just won't like it. That's sort of where we're at with WWE. We watch out of obligation. It doesn't mean we don't have the right to complain because it sucks dick.
