Why do fans on here hate on popular stars

This has been going on for a while even dating back to the attitude era. Why do online fans hate on what’s popular? Years ago people online would hate on Austin, rock and cena and I never understood why. Is it the underdog mentality from fans in wrestling in general. When I go to other entertainment forums, people don’t hate on the popular act.

Because wrestling fans hate everything and cannot be pleased, ever.

Re: Why do fans on here hate on popular stars

people don't necessarily hate them just because they're the new cool thing to hate.

some faces like seth, kofi etc are over on smark forums also.

people hate when someone like Bobby Lashley wins the ECW championship or when JBL randomly became a main eventer because it was clearly done by the company because THEY like that star, ignoring what fans want from a top face or heel.

i dont see people other than a few grumpy posters here hating popular people who everyone clearly likes just for the sake of it.

Re: Why do fans on here hate on popular stars

Wrestling forum users are always hyper critical. It's the nature of wrestling forums. Critiques no matter how small or irrelevant get magnified and made a big deal of.
It's the Live crowds and ratings that WWE need to pay attention to. There is no way for WWE to please every member of a wrestling forum.

What you call popular is stuff/superstars cheered by kids and shoved down fans' throats

Nothing in wrestling is popular.

yes. AJ styles is in main events because he is popular, so people like him on this forum. that is true popularity.

bobby lashley was in main events winning the ECW belt when no one cared about him, JBL was in main events after being a nobody for years. that is "shoving down throat" popularity.

Because hating things that a majority of people like is the cool and edgy thing to do.

Re: Why do fans on here hate on popular stars

Internet wrestling fans are the worst kind of hipsters... if its popular they want nothing to do with it. The cynical outlook is kind of annoying, reminds me of me when i was an angsty teen... disliking things just because they’re popular and other people like them

Re: Why do fans on here hate on popular stars

Majority of time whoever is at the top of their profession is going to be hated. Look no further than professional sports. NBA, LeBron and the Warriors are hated. NFL, the patriots are hated. Boxing, Floyd Mayweather is hated.

Social Media and internet forums provide people the platform to voice their hate. No matter how popular something is, there will always be a group of people who oppose it. Without social media, we would likely be oblivious to it.
