Hi guys, what name do you prefer for the new era?

There is the name "reality era" circulating which in my opinion is wrong.
Coz:
Real-life issues were often mined for storyline content, blurring the lines between fiction and reality.
Quote is taken from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attitude_Era
and exactly that is happening now, a mix of fiction and reality, and not just reality.

I will add some names into a poll and we will see what you guys prefer, and i would be happy if you add some names, that one day we can start maybe a new poll if necessary.

I see! Interesting name, but I think a French art reference would go over the heads of 99.9999% of the audience (including myself).

Let's face it, high culture is to pro-wrestling as Opera singing is to burping the alphabet.
Maybe, but the WWE has already named an era the Golden Age in the 80s that started after Wrestlemania launched as a reference to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_age

But i see, maybe i should explain, how i meant some names, and what the references are and why?

Début de siècle i have already explained in post #15.

Storm and Stress is a reference to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sturm_und_Drang. A rebellion against the rational economic (who sells most is the top guy) way WWE is now handling their booking. And a rebellion for better wrestling. etc.

Belle Epoque: a reference to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belle_%C3%89poque. that can mean that the beauty of wrestling counts more than just the sales to decide who is on top. And the tensions between jobber, mid carders and elite (e.g. Cena) are getting bigger.

Progressive Era: a reference to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progressive_Era. For me it is the best name, coz it sums almost everything up.
