Re: Favorite year of the Ruthless Aggression Era?

I wasn't really watching Smackdown during the ruthless aggression era so this is based on RAW.

2003 (Hollywood Rock, Austin/Bischoff, HBK's full time return, Evolution, Goldberg, Kane unmaking)
2005 (Angle/HBK, HBK/Hogan, Hardy/Edge, Carlito, Muhammed Hussan, Christian)
2004 (Didn't care for Benoit's push).
2006 (The year where it all turned to shit).
2007-2008 (Had stopped watching by this point).

Missed 2002 as I was one of the millions that tuned out after WM18.

Re: Favorite year of the Ruthless Aggression Era?

2005.

Reasons: Batista/HHH feud was huge at the time and their Hell in a cell match is a classic. HBK/Angle rivalry. Christian at his prime, he was my favourite wrestler in the company at the time. Muhammad Hassan. The rise of Edge and his great feud with Matt Hardy, one of the best steel cages match in history was Edge/Hardy at Unforgiven 2005. First ever MITB match. MnM were doing great tag team work on Smackdown. Both shows were very watchable.

Runner up would be 2006 as I loved Edge's first main event run and feud with Cena and he became my favourite wrestler after Christian left the company. It was also good to see RVD win the belt and ECW's revival was cool at the time. Edge/Foley was great and DX reforming and feud with McMahons provided good weekly comedy. Overall though, 2006 had more bad stuff compared to 2005 and Smackdown was boring most of the year. I never liked Mysterio run as World Champion and I couldn't stand King Booker - and even now looking back on it 12 years later I think it was a awful character, but each to their own.

Re: Favorite year of the Ruthless Aggression Era?

From what I understand, Ruthless Aggression started on June 24, 2002.
Ruthless Aggression era was one of the worst eras of professional wrestling. Triple HGH as the world champion and FOTC single handedly drew away more audience than any other wrestler in history at the time.

There was never a single larger than life moment starting from June 24, 2002 till 2008 during that time. Hingsight being 20/20, as great as Lesnar, Cena and Batista were; neither were as enjoyable to watch as Hogan or Austin or Rock in the ring or on the mic (Lesnar to this day has no idea on how to cut a good promo). Them being pushed as FOTC did not bring about a wrestling boom like Hogan or Austin did. Orton was insufferable back then.

So my answer is, I do not have a favorite moment or year during the RA era.

2002 or 2005. Lots of stuff happened during those years that kept me intrigued.

I loved 2002-2004. From 2005 on, I started caring less and less.
