I miss individualized Wrestler outfits, unique names and overall gimmicks.

I miss heels who were funny (ADR is holding it down though)

I miss international masked wrestlers other than Rey

I miss piledrivers




I definitely dont miss the spirit squad or WWECW (Although I miss the real ECW Big time)

I miss the product being exciting. I won't say it's boring now, even though a lot of it is, but most of the time, even when it's good it's not exciting. Usually now, whenever something happens, it's like "eh, whatever." The only time this entire year I can recall people getting excited was when NXT season 1 showed up to beat the shit out of Cena and destroy the ring.

I miss the set not looking so elaborate and flashy with too much lights and effects and stuff.

I miss the crowds excitement. They can make the show 2 times better than it is when they're going crazy.

I miss having actual blood
I miss the TV-14 rating that allowed the product to be better
I miss the brands being a self contained world and not the confusing mass crossover the whole thing is now
I miss established PPVs and not self titled events based on gimmick matches or themes of matches
I miss the dueling sets of tag team championships
I miss cruiserweights and their title
I miss having more divas around with the right to be there and not some half ass trained ex model
I miss having ring/tv announcers playing the secondary background roles to the primary wrestlers/performers
I miss the womens title and hate it's silvery butterfly successor
I miss Heat, Velocity, and PPV preshows that had an actual match or more for the TV viewer to watch
I miss Raw having red ring ropes instead of the white, clean image intending white ropes
I miss it when Vince listened to an audience about a performer or angle instead of his current method of forcing it down our throats until we complied or tuned out.
I miss the WWE Championship that wasn't an ugly custom
Lasly, I miss the WWE that operated as though common sense did apply more so than what we see today.

I miss the hardcore division. We don't need the 24/7 rule, just give us a couple of midcarders we never cared about and them stiff the holy hell out of each other. Make us care about the Hollys, Blackmans and Al Snows of the business again.

But most of all I miss the overall willingness to push the envelope. Back in 97-99, McMahon was willing to push the bar and give us what we wanted. Blood, violence, tits, swearing. He didn't care so long as it got ratings. He even tapped into subcultures like the goth/heavy metal world and gave us the brood and ministry of darkness. Everything is so bland now. Even the so-called "hot" Nexus angle has a generic feel to me.

I didn't even watch WWE in the attitude era and I still miss it. All you have to do is go back and watch one match from that era and to see its much better than todays product. From the bloody violence to the crazy pop's from the crowd, God dammit it needs to go back.
