Re: Which type of wrestling fan are you?

Can I go with type C? I like both equally and feel that so long as its done well it all has its place within the pageantry of wrestling.

Re: Which type of wrestling fan are you?

I'm Type A. I prefer the real shit.

I love the nWo/Attitude era, but that stuff was just a fluke. Bishoff had 1 great idea that would not have worked without landing the Outsiders and Vince lucked up on Stone Cold and The Rock. It was all luck. It's usually best to stick to pro wrestling.

Re: Which type of wrestling fan are you?

Easily Type B, a good promo is what leads me to be excited for a match in the first place. That said, I do find myself doing other things during most matches. Just not as invested in ring work as the rest of you.

Re: Which type of wrestling fan are you?

I'm definitely type B. When Austin and McMahon used to get on a mic for a 20 mins at the start of RAW back in 1998/1999, I couldn't get enough. Right after they would start a random match, and I couldn't wait for it to end to see DX, or someone else do something crazy. I started to appreciate the actual wrestling more when guys like Jericho, Benoit, and Mysterio got into the picture. However, when you got guys like Farooq against Goldust, it's not the most exciting match lol

Re: Which type of wrestling fan are you?

I like longer matches, but prefer to have a reason to pay for them so I guess I'm type B-A lol.


WISH LIST

A new, 44th WWE Champion [x]
Daniel Bryan, SummerSlam 2013. Then Orton won it and the WWE was like

SmackDown moves to live Thursdays []
Cena is not in a title match nor a main event at WrestleMania []
Raw returns to two hours, instead of three []

Re: Which type of wrestling fan are you?

Im definitely a B. I prefer the entertainment side of things. Its strange because when I was younger I always used to hate promos and segments. I would always watch lengthy matches but now its kind of opposite. I prefer the in ring promos/segments. No doubt I still enjoy the good match that tells a story through it, the near pin falls, the suspense etc.

Re: Which type of wrestling fan are you?

I think most want a combination of both, I'll lean with 'Type B' because storytelling IMO is more important than a wrestling match between two people I don't care about, Tyson Kidd vs Justin Gabriel in 25 minute clinic or The Rock vs Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 18? It's a pretty easy choice for me really.

Re: Which type of wrestling fan are you?

I'd call myself both, but if someone put a gun to my head and told me to pick, I lean more towards B.

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.
