I doubt this roster will ever equal the success of the Attitude Era, but could definitely give us more good matches, at least compared to 1998-1999, which depended more on stunts and backstage hookah than actual quality wrestling.

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.

No. This roster is not as good. There's lot of midcarders that aren't so good. Kofi, Ryder, Barrett, Brodus, Swagger Otunga, Gabriel (is not bad, but doesn't have the look) and a large etc of mediocre people. And there's only two or three solid guys at the main event scene: Punk, Cena and sometimes Orton. The other ones are part-timers (Lesnar, Triple H, The Rock and Undertaker). And I don't see five minutes matches coming from his main bet, Ryback.

Nope. They are fine these days, the talent may even be deeper, but nobody up top can touch The Rock or Austin in the late 90s.

The roster wasn't all that in 1998, except for a few great ones. I think people overrate the roster when the era really kicked off. There was a reason they depended more on vignettes than matches to entertain. Austin, Foley, Kane and Taker were the only top guys main eventing once Bret and HBK was gone, at least until Rock moved up at Survivor Series and then Triple H moved up almost a year later. The midcard had Rock, HHH, Owen and a few other decent ones but nothing great beyond that. This roster right now doesn't really have any Austins or Rocks per se, except maybe Cena, but overall it has good talent at every level and the potential to give us great matches all the time. Like several others have said, the writing is the deciding factor is how good the show will really be.

Yep. No Rock/Austin. I swear Dean Ambrose might be that good, though, and I'm so not joking. Everyone else is repetitive and meaningless by comparison.
