The constant buzz from the crowd.

Themed PPV sets.

A mid-card with purpose. Feuds, not programs.

Sunday Night HeAT.

Driver moves.

Red Ropes on RAW.

The "World Wrestling Federation"

A memorable intercontinental championship. These days its as if the belt may as well not exist.

Solid tag team division. LOD, The Rockers, Bushwackers, the list goes on and on.

Themed sets for PPVs.

Theatrics and Pageantry. Watching wrestlers like Macho Man come to the ring was always a treat.

I know this is lame, but i remember back in the the day when heel tag teams used the blind tag behind the refs back. I feel that it made the match so much better

This by a lot. It's strange how the show is three hours long and there are really only one or two storylines at a time while everything else is filler.
This as well. Wrestling should be fun.

- This would definitely be one. Part of what makes it hard to enjoy the shows now is that every aspect is taken so "seriously". There is too much realism in pro wrestling today. I think it is fun to suspend disbelief to a degree (beyond what we normally have to, anyway...). But it should be done properly, and it's been a while since that was the case. There is comic book fun, and then there is absolute stupidity. I wish I could forget the promo Scott Steiner did with Chucky to pimp the new Child's Play movie on WCW years ago.

- A better tag team division would be nice. I get tired of singles guys teaming up for a quick run as title holders, because the division itself isn't strong enough to produce it's own champions.

- The Hardcore Championship. Yeah, I understand why it is gone, but it was fun to watch when they had it. A belt that had to be defended at all times, all places. Guys constantly looking over their shoulders wondering who is going to be jumping them from the shadows next. Even Divas would win it, when they played their cards right. I loved it. It added a spicy, unpredictable element to every show.

This would give depth the WWE. Instead of meaningless titles like the US and IC, which I wish mean more, you could have the hardcore matches which automatically makes the match interesting. If I were to see Tensai and Brodus Clay in the ring on Smackdown, I probably wouldn't watch. If it's for the Hardcore Championship, well now that's entirely different. Think about the possibilities.

OK THERES TO MANY THINGS TO LIST.... oh wait this thread is little things only i see...

if this thread was everythings things I miss the from the old days I would just say the entire old wwf product of the attitude era or ruthless agression era. a product for any1 over 8 years old that doensnt spit in our face. but ya u get the point it sucks now and we all miss the old shit when wreslting was cool and violent and had good storylines and not made for little kids.


but the little things i miss are this

1. less lighting during the attitude era, the arenas looked hella more badass and cool. the atmosphere was much better. Hd tv and all this bright lighting shit makes wrestling look so fuckin corny nowadays imo. just take a look for yourselves at the 1998 arena and the 2013 arena..


2. red ropes looked hella badass also and black steps for raw etc

3. the themes of smackdown/raw were fuckin awesome back during the attitude era and ruthless agression era. as the years went on they became shitty etc (nickelback... greenday... for wreslting wtf is this shit lol)

4. I MISS THE TV 14 SIGN AT THE CORNER OF THE SCREEN LOL. (ib4 retards say it was pg partly during the attitude era and smackdown was pg, hey morons they pushed the boundaries backthen before getting put on a leash nowadays) but still ya when u see the tv14 symbol u know shit wasnt for kids. thank god tna exists i still see that symbol for when im watching wreslting lol

5. oh and i miss the WF attitude era logo and the ''world wrestling federation'' hella more bad ass than world wrestling entertainment.

but ya these are just some minor things. overall tho everythin i miss from the oldays lol. shit sucks now
