Re: Do you feel that WWE water down their "big" matches these days?
The only "big" matches they water down nowadays are the hardcore ones, and only because of safety restrictions, which is bullshit honestly.
There aren't many innovative or interesting spots in other big matches any more because we have seen most if not all of the ones considered "safe" in WWE.
Also there's been a really large decline in wrestling ability in main events as of late. The only good 'wrestler' in the main events right now is Punk and that's saying something. In comparison to previous workers like Taker, Angle, HBK, etc, he's sloppy, slow, and not intense. You could consider Del Rio in it but you can never show your prowess as a lucha-esque wrestler when you're in a feud with Big Show.
There are wrestlers that play their roles very well, like Sheamus, Big Show and Del Rio (plays a pretty good face honestly)
That doesn't mean there aren't good matches. Sheamus v Big Show where Big Show won the title was probably the best match of the year of the current full-time roster.
List of wrestlers I informed wrestlingforum.com of their talent before it became cool:
Sasha Banks / Rusev / Brad Maddox / Scott Dawson / Jason Jordan / Tye Dillinger / Baron Corbin / No Way Jose
