as for anybody praising TNA, now that's just straight hypocritical. Piss poor story lines, that are same but worse than WWE. Bringing in Brooke Hogan then having her marrying one of the legends of this business, who's better suited as a bad guy if you ask me. DUMB! Why a wedding angle when WWE JUST HAD ONE? All they do is copy WWE, but worse. And their "new" faction SUCKS. They lose all their matches and every single one of their revealed wrestlers would be jobbers in the WWE. You think bringing back the Rock, HHH, and Undertaker back is said. They have guys like Sting, Hogan, and RVD who are still trying to sadly keep the boots on. Their tag team champions are the worst team I've ever seen. They allowed some WWE start who mad a fun of their product become their CHAMPION.

Dumb dumb dumb.....and this is why WWE is in no hurry to make their product any more exciting. NO competition. Yes, the 90s were great. NO internet..Didn't know everybody's predictions and rumors ever single day. Plus...we were kids...of course that stuffs better to a kid. We liked Hulk Hogan who SUCKS if you really think about it but then some of you sit here and dog out Cena.
u mentioned the internet. it would work to their advantage if they just released it. sometimes people miss it or forget to dvr it or even fall asleep lol. me. and its a bitch to find raw or smackdown.

but i know, if we arent seeing the commericials the sponsers are paying for, then it never happened. nothing in entertainment is about the fans. its all about the advertisers.

I don't feel too old for the WWE anymore, but as I've gotten older I have met less people who are still as interested in wrestling as I am. Which perhaps is the effect of the WWE getting softer and more family friendly.

Most people would've never thought the product would be as family friend as it is today 10 years ago.

I've been watching for 22 years and I'm 26 years old. It's really, really, REALLY hard to keep interest in the product but luckily I know that the WWE isn't the be all end all when it comes to pro wrestling. NJPW and TNA keeps me entertained.

What's turned me off to the product is the lack of depth in the roster. Ziggler, The Shield, and Punk are maybe the only ones that keep me entertained at all. The main event talent, the ones whose storylines are supposed to attract the audience, are either incredibly bland or have been used so much that there really isn't anything fresh for them to do. Orton and Cena being examples of that.

There's nothing for me to invest in. Nobody that I want to get behind and support. It's a combination of poor talent and story writing. Has nothing to do with being "too old". Raw was still PG in 2011 and I enjoyed the fuck out of that year.
