Do you miss all the awesome classic superstars?

People like Macho Man, Ric Flair, Steve Austin, Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, The Rock, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Mick Foley, Roddy Piper, Sting, Jake The Snake Roberts, Ted DiBiase, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Diamond Dallas Page, Virgil, Scott Steiner, Arn Anderson, Kimberly Page, Trish Stratus, Lita, Dawn Marie, Sable, Lex Luger, Jimmy Hart, Rob Van Dam, Eric Bischoff, Bill Alfonso, Larry Zbyszko, Tony Schiavone, Mean Gene Okerlund, etc.

It doesn't get any better than the above. It truly makes me sad. I watched WCW, WWE, and ECW throughout the 90's, and the above people were there. It's like remembering all your old friends. They are infinitely better than the current WWE roster. They bring back so many great memories, that its hard to believe they are not on wrestling anymore.

Do you miss all these classic people?

Re: Do you miss all the awesome classic superstars?

Yes I do miss big star characters.
The kayfabe curtain has not only been pulled back it has been pulled down.

When superstars that are supposed to be rivals are playing video games together and snapping selfies together then seriously how can fans even suspend their belief anymore?

WWE has a ton of in ring talent but when it comes to character and star power the majority seem like they all have been clone mass produced on a factory line.
It would be difficult to fill one hand with how many talents actually standout with star power on today's roster.

This is more a problem with management more than talent themselves in my opinion. The product is in a cesspool of mediocrity due to clueless out of touch management.

Re: Do you miss all the awesome classic superstars?

no

most of the guys you listed are either;

gold-diggers, liars, thieves, drug heads, assholes, egomaniacs, sociopaths, backstabbers, sexist pigs, have no respect for pro wrestling or worse

Despite what you may have heard about so-called "smark marks" and the "IWC" some of us are actually here to help. All you have to do is ask.

I don't know, man. With a lot of the stuff coming to light recently, these classic superstars seem to have more moral integrity than our politicians.
