Are there even any out there?

Well, these days I take the WWE for what it is - kid's entertainment that I enjoy. I enjoy the new TMNT cartoon too - and that is geared towards kids - so, it's all cool.

I think the difference between now and 5 years ago is that when a show does not go exactly as I want, or a star is not booked correctly, I don't feel shafted in my personal capacity any more - I just take it for what it is -->> a wrestling based entertainment show, not the end of the world...

I do find myself enjoying the underdogs though - and the pushed faces and heels for the most part hold no interest for me. Guys like Bryan, Ryder, Sandow, Ambrose, Cesaro keep me coming back for more - while the Cena's Sheamus' and Punks are only an afterthought unless they really perform - like Punk has the last 3 weeks or so.

Do the rest of the over 30s feel the same way? A sort of nonchalant interest in the show, while rooting for your favs - and just enjoying it for what it is?

Or are you still passionately supporting and have knee-jerk reactions to booking, burials, backstage segments and so on? (nothing wrong with it)

I hope we can come here and chat each week about the Raw past

PS> I enjoyed Raw last night - skipped past Wade/Orton - Meh'd the Shield / 3 Heroes fight - loved the Ryback / Cesaro match (although, Ryback really looked tired afterwards - gotta look at that cardio) and was mildly interested in Swagger and somewhat in Bryan's new antics (embrace the 'Yes' Bryan!)

PPS> I am sure under 30's can comment - but I hope we can at the very least keep this civilised...
Yes you are very similar to me, I recently turned 30 & have a similiar attitude to the busyness. I am however a huge Punk fan, follow most of the names you've mentioned atm & do get hyped for Wrestlemania & Royal Rumble PPVs - Occasionly if its a significant Raw I may stay up to watch (Raw 1000th) (I'm from the UK)

Hey Stevie - on what channel in the Uk is Raw. I am going to London for a Bit and would love to catch it.

Ps. My first live raw was at the O2 last year - oh, the 'yes' chants were amazing!

What did you guys think of EC?

Mine are:

1. Reigns impressed the hell out of me - now I am sold on the whole Shield
2. I think we are heading for Cena vs. Ryback (obvious)
3. Del Rio / Big Show + Diva's match + Ziggy Kofi were all forwarded - except Big E's beatdown
4. I was too tired to appreciate Rock / Punk for what it tried to be - was left underwhelmed as a result
5. I have a morbid fascination with Brodus / Tensai team - what the funk!
6. Loved Swagger, Henry in the cage last night
7. I am now a fan of the 'Champion' song used in Rock / Punk promo

On a related note, I just descovered Robert deLong - give his new song a listen

EC was 7/10 IMO

If your over 12 you should be ashamed that you still watch the current E product

Re: The Over 30 year old WWE fan thread

I don't want to be a thread crasher, but why do a lot of people over the age of 30 like to use a lot of hyphens/dashes in their sentences?
It's a growing fad I don't understand.

Ha! It is to keep our thoughts nice and / or - orderly

Learned a lot of lessons from writing massive business e-mails where dashes and the like come in handy to get a point across - and it stuck while posting on forums.

Fukkit - I can't stop doing it
