I'd say Callihan/Younger was a different ball game than that. Younger takes a boatload of offence, and is built as a strong bastard. What got me annoyed with that Strong BJ match, though, is that they made me care for something only to throw it away as if that was simply irrelevant. When you're making your own story irrelevant then I can't continue. I'm not sure how many matches I've just stopped watching because of stupid shit. Don't invest me in something and then make it wasted time. That's just grating.

Though I know how much tastes can change in a short amount of time.
I only hopped onto wrestling, from a critical standpoint, around that time. So, being the newbie that I was, I followed the crowd and assumed that's what wrestling was. I assume we've all moved on, grown in taste and realised the short comings. That or the novelty of something new has worn off.
