Re: Why are you still watching?

I don't.

The WWE is all flash and no substance, and has reached such ridiculously low standards that it can barely hold my attention anymore, let alone provide the necessary suspension of disbelief required in order for me to enjoy the product. It's populated by under-performing and overrated athletes who would never had received a job back in the Attitude Era, and is overrun by nonsensical storylines and meaningless, low-impact PPVs, all at the hands of a CEO who is obviously delusional and slipping into senility.

The WWE today reminds me of WCW - mediocre, tacky and uninspired rubbish.

Re: Why are you still watching?

I don't know about you, but the last time I seriously followed the shows was until Over the Limit. Since then I've only read results, checked out a few random segments or matches and a few full episodes (most notably Raw 1000) but yeah, I've quit. The roster sucks and boring people like your current WWE Champion hogging all the TV time only makes it worse. With the hopelessness of the company, only thing that can bring me back in as merely a temporary fix is The Rock (or Brock Lesnar as long as he isn't allied with Punk).

Watching Ryback mostly, to see how he develops. Also Dean Ambrose should debut in a match against Tyson Kidd, and lose. :]

I don't, the show has sucked since Extreme Rules so I switched off around June-July. Reading everything since, it hasn't gotten better.

Re: Why are you still watching?

I don't even know why I returned. I took a break after 2008 and returned this year (January). During that time I just read results and watched parts on youtube that was worth watching (did watch NXT season 3 though).

but I guess now: Cena, Sheamus, Kane, AJ, Kaitlyn, Christian (whenever he is on), Ryback, Henry, Barrett, & Sandow. I try to only watch them.

Re: Why are you still watching?

I don't watch that much nowadays apart from WM 28.

And the only reason I watch occasionally is Taker. when he finally retires, I'm out for good.

Re: Why are you still watching?

I've been a wrestling fan for as long as I can remember. Though I do find the WWE of today lacking of the entertainment and quality it once held, I still tune in on Monday nights. Could that be out of habit? Maybe. There are some nights I regret staying up late when I have to work in the morning, those nights where not much happens to advance storylines and are just filler nights.

I'll always be a fan of the WWE though, it's just something I grew up with and something that has been a part of my life for a long time.

I see that an entertaining technician who can cut a promo with the best of 'em must not be the type of guy that interests you in wrestling then...

Ah, are you secretly Vince McMahon, ya'know the old one who only pushed the roided up looking guys on the roster? I get that looks are important to a degree, but what about Mrs. Foley's baby boy? He sure didn't look like any superstar to me, in fact he looked like a hobo, yet he was and is loved by almost any fan of wrestling because he was entertaining and had talent.

Point being, you're a fool.

Calling CM Punk dull? Sounds to me you are just mad at how over he is, because any real wrestling fan would concede that he has talent and is entertaining. Maybe not all the time, sure sometimes he can be too cartoony, but everyone has off nights.

Quote:

Are you talking about his character or his real persona? If you're talking about his character then I don't even know what to say. Heel's are supposed to tell fans to fuck off, their job is to be hated.

If you're talking about his real persona, his twitter type stuff and the fact he gets mad at people who approach him when he's in airports and what-not, then I still don't know what to say. I guess anyone who gets annoyed at people disturbing him on his off time is a Christian Bale rip-off.

What would you prefer? An interesting storyline involving a dull bartender looking guy, or the same old stuff with a guy yelling about loyalty and hustle and respect while tossing in some head-shakingly bad "comedy" and fake emotion?
