Re: Anyone else NOT impressed with the product?
The product is okay right now. They are building new stars, and there is never anything wrong with that. Personally, I am taking a break from the product because Cena is out and nothing feels "big" without him. Plus, Punk and Bryan are not my cup of tea. Plus, I have a feeling that Wrestlemania 30 will be my last stand as a fan because I think I have seen everything there is to see in wrestling. That is one of the main reasons why younger people in my family find it odd that I am not impressed with CM Punk. I have watched for so long that I have seen characters like him in some form or another. He only stands out today because the cycle has started over and everything is sterilized. Therefore, Punk's nerdy brand of edginess seems alot edgier than it really is.
I started watching when guys that look like Rock, Cena, Austin, Sheamus, Ryback, etc.. were still the prototypical wrestler. Looking at these average Joes will not make me want to fork over money for any pay per view, let alone Mania. Trust me, I get their "cool factor", but it's not for me.
That being said, the younger generation of fans are enjoying them, and more power to them. The Hogan/Larger than Life types is my wrestling.
