Is the current product/era overrated?

More specifically, are the eras post RA overrated? I see a lot of posts here that the current product has the most talented roster ever and amazing matches whereas past eras did not focus on wrestling and the matches were garbage. I see fans saying that PG era is better because of women's revolution and treatment, more mature product, less cursing/violence/sex and generally no stupid storylines and gimmicks.

In your opinion, are fans hyping up the current product too much or do you agree that this era is awesome.

No.

I don't really see people rating this product highly. in fact most people shit on it (for a good reason most of the time) so calling it overrated is just not factual imo.

Its mostly considered garbage, and rightly so.

The one thing it does get credit for is its roster, which IS quite deep. But it lacks true star power at the top. Its basically just tons and tons and tons of solid midcard talent. Definitely not the best roster ever assembled - WCW circa 1998 and late AE/early RAE WWE were better.

I don't know how to answer this question honestly. I don't believe fans are making out to be good at all and surely not better than prior eras. Plus I am not enjoying the current product either.

It's overrated in the sense still too many people watch it. Ratings should be lower.

Re: Is the current product/era overrated?

If anyone actually likes it, then it is overrated.
This current era is far worse than the New Generation era. And the New Generation era gets totally ripped apart.

Hard to disagree. Though this era doesn't have Diesel so there's that.

No people are too busy giving the product shit and complaining so it can't be overrated.

Re: Is the current product/era overrated?

Product is awful as a whole. Talent is not the biggest issue but no time will ever measure up to the Monday Night Wars/Attitude Era. Austin and Rock two GOAT's. Taker, Foley, Kane, Angle, HHH, Jericho and even Bret and HBK for the very early bits of the AE and that is only WWF. WCW was stacked with guys like Eddie, Benoit and Misterio in the mid card. Steiners and Harlem Heat 2 of the great tag teams of the 90's and led to Booker and Big Poppa Pump rise to the ME. You had the nWo which in its initial incarnation was amazing. Hall and Nash with Hogan being the Anti-WWF truly amazing TV to watch and I am glad as hell I got to watch that as it happened and not just hear second hand stories about it. Throw in Flair, Savage, DDP and the rise of Goldberg. So much other talent I haven't even mentioned.

The talent has never been better... at least from an in-ring stand point.

Everything else is suffering. This includes actual matches, so it makes the only boon of this era irrelevant.
