Re: The Over 30 year old WWE fan thread
I have gotten in to the PG argument plenty of times before, but, anyway, for the billionth time, the show's rating is NOT why it sucks. The writing is fucking garbage. Absolute fucking garbage.
I am guessing the ones claiming to be 30+ years of age started watching wrestling at a later age because anyone who started watching it in the 80's/90's (before Attitude Era) would know the product was mostly geared towards kids (especially in the 80's with Hogan). 80's wrestling is the best fucking wrestling ever. It didn't matter about the rating, it was because the storylines were awesome, the characters were original, wrestling was just better in general. Now, you get some guys that stand out, but, the majority are just another generic fuck in tights. It's like the company got lazy and stopped all efforts to be interesting, for the most part.
Forget the rating, it has very little at all to do with the current shittyness of the product. Get better fucking writers because the ones now are trash. IMO, part of the reason is because Vince has no competition. If you have no competition, you rest easy and get lazy because no one is on your ass. If Vince had someone to contend with (TNA and ROH don't count because both are fucking shit), he might try a little harder to get his writing team to create some good shit or get the fuck out so he can get a new team of writers.
