Re: Have you ever been a fan of an unpopular/hated wrestler?
Today: I'm a big fan of Reigns, Corbin and Bliss. Obviously Brock too, who gets his fair share of hate.
Historically: I like/liked JBL. His reign occured right at the start of me getting "smart" to wrestling- I knew it was fake many years before that, but 2003/2004 was when I started reading websites and dirtsheets on a regular basis. Hated him at first but I appreciated his role as time went on, as his title reign was happening.
Makes me wonder, how different would the Attitude Era have been if the Internet was around like it is today? Would Austin and Rock have received backlash for being "overpushed" or "Vince's boys"?
