Don't answer the question if you don't know what the hell you're talking about.

Ziggler may as well have been Mr. Ass back than. He wasn't over. Just a tag team guy.

lol @ Cena.

"I hate to be the one to inform you, good Sir, but now nothing you ever say again will be seen as even slightly credible!"


Are you seriously implying that Badass Billy Gunn wasn't over?

Probably not the Miz. He doesn't like to BLEED.

As a main eventer? Yes, that's exactly what I'm implying.
His tag team was over as hell, primarily because it got to use DX/HBK catch phrases, but that's where it ends.

Think this would probably be a problem for quite a few guys, can't imagine many of them would be up to blading honestly.

Fans hated thug gimmicks back then. They always failed horribly.
More over, Cena's wrestling ability is like a 1 out of a 10.

That actually mattered back then. If you think Cena would get away with the shit he gets away with now, back then, you're crazy.
Fans would of hated him, and not in a good way, in a way that got him released from the company.

It took a little more back in the day than just sucking at wrestling and pandering to the "WWE Universe"

Nobody.

Today's WWE wrestlers do not wrestle, and do not do the things WWF did during the attitude era. Which was brawling, fast paced short matches, with tons of irish whips in a 100% kayfabe world.

Almost everybody in WWE today would have done much better in 90s WCW.

90s WCW was much more like todays WWE, and the ruthless aggression era. Ever since Vince bought WCW they did away with the production, and fighting style of the attitude era to please WCW fans.

True. Just about all of them could, but they would for sure know their place on the roster that time around.

Cena in ring skills are way above a 1/10, and there were many wrestlers in the Attitude Era who didn't have greatest skills in the ring.

You've GOT to be kidding me. Wrestling is WAY more about pure in ring wrestling today than it was back then. Everybody in the Attitude Era was a character, that's why it was popular and it isn't today. Nobody ever got pushed based on ring work the way that geeks like Ziggler do now.

New - Episode 81 - Star Wars Original Trilogy & The New Joker
Star Wars! Ever heard of it? Regardless this week weíre talking the original trilogy in all itís glory plus the Jokerís controversial new look, Fantastic Four, Furious 8 and more. What a time to be alive or whatever.
