Yeah. You're right then. Watching wrestling isn't what people do with their lives, well for the most part.

And we do ratings here but when the hell did "How can TNA grow?" become a main part of this section haha. Can someone say what they would like more from this section. I understand you want more but what da buck do you want here. What kind of discussions would you rather have.

There are so few of us that any sort of serious arguments will just make things awkward because it's the same handful of people that you discuss things with. I think it's been said as well that we don't even watch the same thing because there is so much out there. We have discussions but for the most part I find myself agreeing with a lot of the other posters in this sections and rarely have the need to get into any type of passionate debate. It's more like a place where I can go and talk to people that like the same type of wrestling that I do.

I'm thankful we don't have threads about ratings.

Only argument of any sort I can recall was last year in the 2011 MOTYC thread about who's better: Davey Richards or Rocky Romero. It was pretty civil.

Not counting the guy claiming "Michael Elgin > everybody" from this year's thread. That was obviously trolling.

It usually takes some amount of time before we as fans turn from WWE to TNA, ROH, indies, puroresu, lucha and beyond and in that timeframe people tend to grow in age, maturity and worldly understanding, so that the average Other Wrestling fan seems to have a bit more "sophistication" relative to any old cenasux652. We mostly already understand the basic ins and outs of the industry, how to Google things, and what's realistic/practical so the posting is more calculated. Dumbassery, flaming or real trolling isn't really welcome so it's a more civil place. Sophisticated pro-wrestling fan is pretty well an oxymoron but y'all know I what mean.

I'm still confused on what the alternative is, or what you're actually complaining about.

Initially reading this thread, I thought this was going to be a positive thing that this section is not flooded with the same threads and same tiresome fights as others. I'm a little surprised that you (the op) sees this as a bad thing.

I only come on this board to check out this section, because this section gives a nice window to other things happening in the wrestling world. I come here for knowledge and to talk about things that most other wrestling fans do not know about. What reason would I have to fight with someone, when there is already so few of us?

I see plenty of debates, but they're civil. We're talking about art, something that is entirely preference. It's a good thing that we explain why we like or hate something with out implying the other person is an idiot. Of course some minor fights break out, and im sure there are people here who do not like certain other posters, but for the most part we have a good community going on here.

Another thing which people touched upon is what exactly would we all talk about? This isn't like the TNA or WWE section where everyone is on the same page. People who post here watch territorial wrestling, independent wrestling, deathmatches, old/new/indie japanese, old/new/indie lucha and the mainstream stuff (as well as the older mainstream stuff like WCW etc). Nothing really 'unifies' us except we watch stuff other than what is on TV. It's like going to an Atheist community, all of them will have different opinions because they're only considered Atheist by one idea in that they do not believe in a God, all other ideologies and what not can be and are totally different.

I'd gladly take in the 5 match thread which shares a lot of good matches and discussion over this section being spammed with "so and so is overrated", "the new IWC poster boy", "Kurt Angle Da Best and you're stupid if you don't think that" threads.

I've probably only contributed a hundred or so comments and a handful of thread topics in Other Wrestling but it's by far my favourite and the most chilled section here for the reasons that JoeRulz and TaylorFitz point out. I'm 30 years old, the last thing I want to do is get into is a slanging match with some 14 year old in the WWE or TNA sections because a) I have no valid opinion and b) it's utterly asinine. Discussion here is varied and civil but by rote of lack of both regular shows and huge fanbase things just move a little more slowly around these parts.

And yeah I'd argue that wrestling is a hobby for me. I love spending my free time watching shows and am proud of my collection of indy DVDs. Collecting souvenirs and enjoying spending time with them strike me as the definition of a hobby as opposed to a lifestyle. Lifestyle suggests full-time employment within the thing you claim isn't merely a hobby.

this section is massively better without idiots spewing their awful ideas everywhere, though it does happen sometimes.
yes, thread creator, I mean you and your "merge every indy" thread.

there's so little of worth in the WWE/TNA sections that I don't understand why anyone would bother with them, but apparently people do so whatever. when this place was good it was because it had smart people who were all regularly watching the same things, now there's still a few smart people but it's rare that everyone watches something.

I could say more about this place but I don't care allllll that much so I'll stop now.
