Remember that OMG moment when Angle fucking tosses Shane like a rag doll through the KOTR glass, TWICE! There was lots of moments like those on PPVs in the past.
The sheer violence, blood, the bumps, the moments you see only on PPV that was well... what made a PPV exciting.
I get that the TV show is PG, but does that really have to apply to the PPV? Why can't PPVs have violent and brutal matches like these? That's what makes people believe the PPV was memorable. You're NEVER going to interest people by just having two guys square off in a ring. Now more so than ever as pretty much everybody is so desensitized to violence.
It was funny, I had a thread on here a few weeks ago about if sex and violence make wrestling better. The results were pretty much unanimously yes. And then interestingly enough when the NWO did their pannel in the UK, Kevin Nash basically reiterated the same thing that sex and violence makes wrestling interesting.
point being, I get that TV is PG and they can't do much. I just don't see why the PPV shows can't have matches like that to really give people something to talk about.
