Wrestlers not needing a big time push to be over and relevant. Right now it seems like WWE builds everyone up to World Title level, and then lets them coast until it's their turn to get a title shot or a run with the belt.

Re: Little things from the old days that you miss?

I miss the old intro

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYJUHaoNK6w

I miss all the gritty storylines

I miss the fact that all the talent got to have ring/tv time low carders/mid carders/main eventers and it wasent just based on one guy meaning John Cena

3) The old railings (http://www.retroactionfigures.com/images/CIMG0559.JPG). I liked whenever the wrestlers got near it, the fans used to reach over and touch them.
Del Rio and Bryan aren't using real names.....

And the current railings are better. It's been proven(most recently with CM Punk) that there are fans that get way too aggressive towards superstars, so it's better idea to have the type of wall they have now than before. And it allows more superstars to bump into the walls without them being shifted backwards and into the fans.



Some things I wish WWE had, was match importance. 10 years ago you were to watch any show, and all matches had some sort of reasoning/importance behind it. I'd rather watch Miz vs Ziggler in a match with huge importance/build in it, over Punk-Sheamus in a meaningless match.

This sorta connects to my last point, but longer video promos. What happened to the days where every single match on a PPV got a 2-3 min video package recapping everything that led up to the match. Today, we don't have them,mostly cause there isn't anything to recap. Many times,those video packages contained the PPV theme song too(so when the PPV had a good theme song,it made video package that much better)

Differentiation between shows. In WWE today, Raw,SD,PPVs all are basically the same. Minus the tron graphics and ring apron logo, it's the exact same. Which makes no sense since WWE has more money today than they did 10 years ago, yet somehow today they can't/won't use money on the PPV and show sets...

Re: Little things from the old days that you miss?

I just miss the look of the old WWE. It was so much more dark, gritty and cool.

I miss the days when you hit someone with a chair, they were getting pinned for sure.

If you looked at archived forums from 10-15 years ago, people back then bashed things like crazy too. People saying Ruthless Aggression era sucked cause wrestling is declining ever since attitude era. People bashing attitude era while it was happening, cause Austin/Rock were stale, and Undertakers gimmick in early 90s was better than it was in late 90s, and stuff like that.

So it's impossible to ever get a timeperiod with fans who don't criticize everything.

I'm sure in 5 years from now, people will bash that eras top guys cause they aren't a John Cena or CM Punk
