It is. When AJ Styles vs Seth Rollins is the match you're hyping up as the 'dream' match then you are in serious trouble.

You morons will keep doing this until WWE shuts down which will be on the next 50 years and so.

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

Its worse in every way. Yeah 09 wasn't great, but its better than the shit we have now. In 2019 there's only a handful of guys at most that should even be allowed to touch a microphone let alone cut a promo because most of them are garbage. We've got a less talented, and more forced version of Cena. The midcard and tag divisions are even less important. There's zero star power, the guys WWE try to portray as Stars would be midcard fodder in any other Era. And worst of all, success in WWE is limited to the chosen ones more than ever.

2009 had Cena, Orton, HHH, HBK, Jericho, Batista and Taker

2019 has Rollins, Reigns, Bryan, Zayn, Kofi, and nobody else.

It's quite clear that 2009 was better.

Now is as bad as this company has ever been. Idc what anyone tells me. There is literally 0 fucking starpower or incentive to tune in.

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

It's far worse. At least back then you could pull out the legends and you'd still get great matches out of them.

Guest host was trash for sure, but I'd take that over the Raw announce team. It's unbearable listening to that shit. I think the announce team have a lot to answer for. Sure the product as a whole sucks, but they are meant to be selling it to the viewer, and they are not. Stick Mauro in and he could sell me anything!!

Definitely worse now, and 2009 felt like it lasted for years, but at least then it had some actual stars such as Cena, Taker, HBK, HHH, Jericho and Batista etc. Also, while people highlight how horrific Raw was in 09, I think people are forgetting SmackDown was actually pretty decent, particularly thanks to having heels such as Punk and Jericho.

Right now WWE is a shambles and nothing feels important, and the terrible wild card rule is a major panic move. The only things enjoyable about WWE today are Daniel Bryan and Bray Wyatt, and Wyatt isnít even wrestling at the moment!!

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

It has less stars, that's for sure, no one these days feels like a star.

As far as if it worse. I don't know, didn't paid much attention during that period, but the in ring product sure it is better these days. And well, the IIconics are in this period, which automatically gives it bonus points

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

On the one hand, 10 years ago guest host era had really terrible gimmick Raws. On the other hand, in 2019 we are still using a lot of the same names as nostalgia draw that were already playing that role in 2009.

The only recent stars they made were by accident from the backlash of the original decisions with Bryan and Becky. Probably by design so that nobody is bigger than the brand, which is a shame. The in-ring product is definitely better now though.
