Re: Is WWE worse now than it was 10 years ago?

Ofcourse it is worse now than 10 years back.
2009 had bad booking but there was starpower and charismatic superstars on the show to make the show watchable.
HHH,Big Show,DX,Jericho,Shawn Michaels,John Cena,MVP,Batista etc
>>>>Skinny fat Indy jobbers
Even divas back then was hotter and way more over than today's womenzzz wrasslers.

The current product is worst than ever.No starpower with a bunch of chaisma vacuum nobodies like Seth Rollins are shoved into main event.

Re: Is WWE worse now than it was 10 years ago?

It's definitely the worst right now. The ratings prove it.

It's so, so bad right now.

I think it doesn't matter what the WWE does any more. It's all been done before. Everyone is just so burnt out on the same, formulaic WWE way. Everyone is burnt out of over 5+ hours a week of programming. It's all down hill from here in my opinion. I honestly don't think there's a chance to salvage WWE other then if competition arises. Real competition. It seems odd but I truly believe if there's another promotion that can push WWE to be better, bring back wrestling fans to watch wrestling, give the fans options, and allow for the fans to be able to compare and contrast, etc. is the only way the WWE will survive.

I love WWE, it's part of my child hood and it's part of who I am today. But it is at an all time low right now. I hope it survives and I hope it gets better but I'm truly hoping AEW can bring a renaissance.

You could not live with your own failure. Where did that bring you? Back to me.

The guest hosting was worse, but the rest of it probably wasn't. At least 10 years ago I didn't skip the shows, albeit had I been suffering for 10/15 years prior, I may have. I hadn't been pushed to my limit yet.

At least in 2009 when I was sick of watching RAW I could take a break and watch Scott Steiner rant and rave about cheeseburgers instead.

Raw in 2009 was unwatchable. The celebrity guest host shit is the worst thing the company has ever done and the Cena/Orton rivalry sucked.

On the other hand SD was great with Jeff Hardy, Punk and Edge. I'd take 09 SD over either show today.

Good point. I loved TNA around that time.

Re: Is WWE worse now than it was 10 years ago?

it's 10x better than 10 years ago. Huge Mania moments now, more diverse group of talent at the top, better matches on Raw and Smackdown (when the Smackdown 6 was no longer there and stables were pretty much non-existent, we weren't getting that). No Cenawins lol, and Roman does not hog up tv as much as Cena did. We have NXT and 205 live, which are very exciting to watch and are short.

The only problem currently is too many old-timers who wrestle hurt, and putting Vince on tv again. Also, the hardcore and weapons matches just aren't as good.

I kind of resent Alvarez and Meltzer for turning everyone against Russo era TNA. Now where do I go to watch Mick Foley elbow drop a cardboard cutout of Rocky Balboa?

Anyway back on topic, I can't call 2009 WWE worse than 2019. Cena, HHH, HBK, Y2J, Batista, Undertaker, Punk, Orton, Mysterio, Edge. I didn't appreciate it at the time but god damn that roster was stacked.

Of course.

2009 was awful, but they had stars, it all makes a huge differience.
