Re: How can the Attitude Era be overrated?
I don't think it's overrated, more people see it through rose tinted spectacles.
Raw and SD episodes had a hook, that wanted you to watch to the end to see what was gonna happen. But the matches in between the angles were pretty much dogshit. You could barely go an episode without at least 3 matches ending in a DQ. On the plus side though, they kept the bigger matches for PPV's so people would actually watch them. And as Wood says, a LOT of it doesn't hold up very well.
I don't agree with the never being boring thing either. I'm currently going through the whole era myself and have to take breaks, because it's very draining. Watching the Gang Warz, had me ripping my hair out more than being entertained. If I ever see a Harris Bros, Savio Vega or Kurrgan match again it'll be way too soon.
