Something I enjoyed that was completely daft whilst watching old Raws was wrestlers advertising things like action figures. That wouldn't go over very well in 2013, but they had it back then and it was fun. Stone Cold Steve Austin advertised the Stone Cold action figure and it was just neat.

The promo work. When promos didn't feel so scripted, and were very enjoyable to watch. I used to love at the start of every Raw or Smackdown, you'd have a big promo to set up for the main event of the night. Sometimes you'd get a few wrestlers at the same time so it was more compelling too.

When there was only one world championship, and the I.C championship was the second top title in the company.

The tag division.

backstage fights and brawls.

I miss finishers being finishers in big title matches. These days kicking out of a finisher is expected more than it is a.surprise.

Backstage interviews - A great way to get guys over would be to just give them 30 seconds to talk backstage to many guys don't talk anymore.

That little box that use to pop up during matches where they showed one of the guys in the match having an interview talking about the guy he was facing as the match was going on.

Different sets for Raw, Smackdown and ppv's - Everything feels the same now the ppv's don't stand out as much.

The big 4 feeling like the biggest ppv's of the year again - Theres to many filler matches tat don't need to be on the card and most of the time those matches kill the buzz of the ppv.

Mid-card titles meaning something again - The IC title use to be the last step being moving onto the wwe title now it's just pasted about if no really meaning be hide it, How many times is Kofi going to hold that belt and do fuck all with it.

Jobber matches - I really think we need more jobber matches on free tv having the main guys face of on free tv kills the chances of me payying to see it on ppv I'm not going to pay to see Cena vs Zigger when I'v seen Cena pin him 107 times on raw already and no sell everything as he does it.

I miss the PPV section in the WWF magazine because as a kid I didn't get to watch the PPV's so I would look at pictures and read about them.
