Re: Are you embarrassed to be a wrestling fan?
Back in the late 90s it was actually cool to like wrestling. People who never watched an episode in their lives were watching every week.
Then it went bad again, and now real bad. I haven't watched in about 6 or 7 weeks, although I have tuned in here on the forums regularly. But what did I see last night - a bunch of guys sitting on ladders, using kindergarten language like "you stuipid idiot". I thought, how could it have gone THIS bad in only a month or so.
It really is amazing, how this company used to put out such an entertaining and respectable product, that captured so many of us as kids. I see no connection between what the WWF/WWE was and what it is today. I do not have one single clue how they remain selling tickets and are keeping their TV contracts. It's the worst it's ever, ever been. After the segment I saw last night, I was thinking, they hit rock bottom. But I'll bet if I catch another episode in another 6 or 7 weeks from now, that somehow they'll have found a way to degrade the show even more.
I honestly can't see this company staying on the air and selling tickets in the years to come if this is the way things are going to be. Who the fuck are the fans going to see? There's no more superstar-type guys anymore. Cena? He actually showed his age in one of those segments last night, he really does look like he's getting older now. He lacked his usual enthusiasm last night. Cena aside, who the hell is in this thing anymore? It's all legit nobodies now. You gotta think they're in a freefall right to the very end here.
