Re: Would competition be better or worse for todays WWE?
Also, when you look at those 2 big eras in wrestling, they both coincided with multiple healthy companies.
Rock 'n Wrestling - WWF, NWA, AWA, USWA, and numerous regional companies like GCW, Smokey Mountain, WCCW,etc.
Attitude Era - WWF/E, WCW, ECW
Even in the "slow" period during the early 90's, you still had a lot of companies. Heck, I remember watching GWF on ESPN during the week. Those really were the days.
Too bad there's only WWE and TNA right now with ROH and Dragon Gate being the "indy/minor leagues".
