To me "raping" the indy scene does not exist. There are still heaps of talented wrestler out there in the world. You can have the same "indy stars" forever, at some point they're going to want to earn a better living.
It does exist. Only, I don't hold it against WWE to take all the talented guys for their roster. That's progression. The problem is, there isn't any progression on the indie side. Most of the talents who can help elevate or "lead" on the indies are being or have been scooped up. Leaving only the ones who don't have that element of control behind 'em and it's all haywire & trashy.
