No Im dead serious can someone please explain to me what was so great about 1998? Late AE- early ruthless agression era is my favorite timeperiod of wrestling (wwe). 1998 had a weak roster and boring storylines. 2011 was one of the best years in wwe starting from punk shoot promo ofcourse and had me so interested in wrestling that I sat up all night waiting for raw.

Austin, Taker, Foley, DX, The Rock, Kane...

And if you didn't like what you were watching, you could switch the channel to Nitro. ?_?

Man, if you could just drop even one of a prime Austin, Rock, Foley or Taker into today's programming, imagine how much it would improve. O_O

just for example rock bottom ppv in december 1998, how wrestling observer subscribers saw that show.....can't remember the last time 93% of people gave a wwe ppv a thumbs down

WWF ROCK BOTTOM POLL RESULTS
Thumbs up 01.2%
Thumbs down 92.8%
In the middle 06.0%
That's because the everyone loved Mick Foley and he REALLY got screwed in this one. The PPV was okay but Mick Foley beat The Rock WITH The Mandible Claw and didn't win the belt because he didn't pin The Rock or make him submit...

I agree from summer of 97 to SummerSlam 98 the company was on fire and it was probably at its best creatively in history.

It got a bit Russo-riffic post SummerSlam 98

Thats pretty much what the show had. Rock was far from his prime , taker had the most boring gimmick in 1999 is where he started to get interesting. Foley I never really cared about except his hardcore matches. Austin and Kane were the only two I could say was at there very best in 98. Each and every year of 99-04+11 > 98 by far.

For the benefit of the doubt, OP is more interested in in ring action.

Otherwise Storyline 98>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>2012. See Vince.
Characters (when Kayfabe matters) 98>>>>>>>>2012
Midcard relevance 98>>>>2012. Only Cesaro saves it from being massively more. And Ziggler, but that was a long time ago.
Main eventers....In the number, nearly have to agree: but 98>2012. Barely. But then again, all those people are legends nowadays.

Your opinions don't matter. I am right and everyone one not agreeing with me is a troll, or an idiot.

(Typical poster thought process)
