Re: This roster has the potential to be great and even equal the attitude era.
The problem isn't so much the talent anyway. The problem is the WRITERS, and also with the way the build talent. When people feel like blood and swearing and sex are necessary in order to be great, I have three words for them: The Dark Knight. That film made so much money and is so cool because it is well written and the characters are compelling even though it's a action movie, based on a comic book, no less. If any promotion did that level of writing for their wrestlers, they could do well. I'm wanting The Dark Knight but feel like I'm getting Transformers.
But the problem with the current era all around, not just WWE, is that it's been lackluster for so long that people have lost interest. That, and because of MMA. Anyway, the point being, I agree up to a point, but it's the writing that can make even a crappy wrestler great or vice versa, because some wrestlers who are considered legends aren't even "good" wrestlers. Also, I take issue with how manufactured a lot of the wrestlers are, like they came off a WWE assembly line. I felt the personalities were far more defined back in the AE. I also don't like how they re-train wrestlers to adapt to WWE's acceptable style, thus making them appear more manufactured to me. So long as their style isn't dangerous, why re-train wrestlers who have been wrestling for years? That's irksome to me, as is hiring non-wrestlers, some clearly hired based on their look. You can have all the potential in the world but if you don't know how to utilize it, it's useless.
