Am I the only one enjoying the current era?

Okay WWE turned PG (again) somewhere in June of 2008. Now we've had some great feuds IMO. HBK vs Jericho, Orton vs HHH, Hardy vs Punk, Jericho vs Rey, Hardy vs Edge, Taker vs HBK and hell even Ziggler vs Rey. Great feuds with great matches as well. HHH vs Orton @ WM25 is obviously up for a debate. Then look at the factions we had. Legacy, Rated-Y2J (short lived but it looked so fricking promising), SES and of course Nexus.

So what's the problem with today's wrestling? I'm sure we can live without Divas getting called sluts, can we? We can live without Monster Trucks and funerals right? We can live without blood. After all this is not the first time WWE has banned blading. So is it something that I am missing?

IMO anyone bitching bout today's product and comparing it to previous years just has no life.. If you that much of perv and are complaining that Divas don't show us the puppies no more, that speaks how much of a loser you are. The internet is full of porn, get your puppies there...sick freak (sorry just had to steal a Rock line)

Yes I know the characters aren't there. There's no Rock, no Austin, no Mankind etc. But I'm sure that I can lay my head on a block that hen Austin and Rock were headlining WWE, old school fans were saying "Rock got nothing on Bret Hart". "Austin got nothing on Ric Flair" etc, etc, etc.

I'm kind of enjoying it but it is still a big piss take that Orton has to be held back and Cena can't turn heel because of it.

Re: Am I the only one enjoying the current era?

I enjoy certain characters, as I always have, but not the era as a whole, but I guess it's always been like that. Wrestling at its core is written poorly, as it's a low brow form of entertainment. There's always only a few things that stand out from the pack.

I totally agree with this, though. I can't help but laugh at how many people on this site are drooling over Maryse doing.....anything. It's like their parents have a block on their computer that prevents them from seeing anything remotely edgy.

Criticism is one of the main premises of this forum, in a way. If everyone agreed with everyone and there was absolutely no "bitching" about anything, this place would be so boring.

Re: Am I the only one enjoying the current era?

I thought last year was much better honestly. I'm like Pyro though, I only watch for my favorites. Most of the guys are cookie cutter FCW guys that give me no reason to care for them. I actually like Sheamus because he was unique, but I quit watching WWE this year after Batista left and the jobbed out Punk to Rey and Danielson left. I still TIVO Raw/SD/NXT, but hardly watch them.

I really enjoyed Heel Batista, Jericho earlier in the year, Miz before I realized he says the same shit over and over and his matches sucked, CM Punk and S.E.S til they put him in a mask, Nexus at the begining, but it got redundant to me, and now w.o HBK and an injured Triple H, I care even less.

They turned Edge into a fuckin retard saying SPEAR SPEAR SPEAR SPEAR SPEAR over and over again and I lost all respect for him. Christian is a terrible face IMO (great heel). I used to like MVP, but they turned him into a stereotypical black wrestler.

I started to enjoy face Orton and I think Cena has great psychology, but neither of those are enough to get me to tune in every week and care. Especially with Cena's character.. it's still hard for me to invest in his matches because he has become so bland.

Re: Am I the only one enjoying the current era?

I think Heyman said it best in an interview not too long ago, "Wrestling is just not cool anymore."

While I don't like the PG crap, there have been some great matches, storylines, and feuds, so I can't complain that much. WWE right now is really a hit or miss product, some of there shows are fantastic, others not so much.

Right now I'm enjoying the Nexus storyline and RAW has been above par the last several weeks, and I haven't hated that many of the skits/backstage interviews.

But reading your statement, I can relate to it, I hate when people clamor for more blood, violence, and sex on WWE televison. Just enjoy the product or change the channel!

Re: Am I the only one enjoying the current era?

I feel this year in wrestling has been pretty good. TNA is starting to turn the corner and WWE is better. To be honest, I didnt think wwe wasnt to bad the last few years but this year is much better.
