Has anyone stopped watching?

Just wondering if any other forum members have actually stopped watching but still enjoys coming onto the forum every now and then to mainly discuss past wrestlers/matches/moments?.

I have not posted in the raw section in at least 2 months maybe more as i have no idea what is going on to even be able to comment on half the topics.but still enjoy joining in on topics from the past and such...

So does anyone else on here not watch the current show but still enjoys this forum mainly to reminisce ?

Re: Has anyone stopped watching ?

I PVR'd the old school Raw from a couple weeks ago, watched it yesterday and that was the first full Raw I've seen in many, many, many months.

I'm not missing too much. I'm going to go back to taking a break.

Trust Me

I still tune in for the PPVs but i can admit i have no idea as to what's behind any of the feuds and matches going on.

But from what i had seen months prior to when i stopped watching there wasn't much build or story lines to most of the matches and they were just getting flung together for a match anyways.... so no big loss ?

I haven't watched week in and week out since about 2007. I usually tune in every now and then during the Road to Wrestlemania every year though, but it's been pretty tough to watch these past few weeks, especially with it being 3 hours now.

Same. I switched to PWG and NJPW stuff. Same time commitment but much better shows.

I think that's possibly the reason why i stopped watching now that i think about it... i haven't watched since the show went 3 hours... to much filler, on too late in the UK 2 hours is do-able but 3 is too much with work in the morn and i think the show has got stale on top of that.

I have a PVR. So I only ever watch about half hour of content. I don't mind giving a half hour a week.

Re: Has anyone stopped watching ?

I'm watching as much as I ever have, but have decided to spend less time in the actual wrestling forums. I've come to realize the IWC is its own self-fulfilling prophecy. All the bitching and complaining about what was on TV was making me hate what was on TV. When I stopped reading what everyone else was crying about, I started enjoying it more again.

God it's good to have fun watching WWE again.
Actually starting to look forward to WM29.
I might even buy it, or go to BWW and watch it over dinner.
