....all the veterans you grew up watching are retiring? (e.g. Triple H, Taker, Kane, Big Show, Chris Jericho, Edge, Christian, etc). These wrestlers don't have much left in them, i can bet that in 5 years most of them will be gone from WWE. It definitely will be hard for me, especially if they are the ones i've followed for a very long time, but i think i will still keep watching just because i've watched wrestling for a long time so it will be difficult to stop no matter what.

I'll still watch for people like cm punk, randy orton, and the miz, so my answer is no i still not stop watching wwe once those veterans retire.

There is a chance I'll stop watching completely with everybody going through changes in their lives and all those veterans I enjoyed quiting but there'll always be a time where I'll catch some indy wrestling in the future or see what's going on in WWE. I'm kinda small but I think it'd be cool to become a wrestler on the indys.

No. Their places will be taken 5-7 years from now, still have Cena, Orton, Danielson, Kaval, Tyler Black when he debuts, Mr Del Rio, Morrison among many others.

Yeah, some new guys are great and have potential to become big stars in future. I just want to know if the loss of all these "childhood heroes" will affect your interest of watching.

Even then, say i watched back in the hogan era (I have watched everything from then afterwards, but not during the actual time period) I would still be watching today, even after the retirement of all the stars from back then

its the cycle of wrestling, new people come and replace the veterans.. those new guys will turn into veterans and the cycle will continue

Keep the storylines good and well paced and don't get emo over the old guard leaving. Fuck no, I ain't quitting wwf if the old guys leave. It's getting their time. Star power means shit all to me. I like to watch good ring chem and psych, cohesive and intersting story that doesn't insult me too much, etc and so forth.

This is more than the common man's opera, after all.

I'll be a fan when they're all gone defo (i started watching WWE/WCW around early 2000ish when i was 6/7) and most of them have left now or are going to leave, Austin, Rock - Taker, Angle, HHH etc). I'll just re-watch the old VHS and DVDs, i won't find it as exciting, as it is more fun and more magical when you're younger (being 6/7/8) like pretty much everything was.

WWE will need to find an entirely new identity once people like Taker,Jericho,Edge,Christian are gone because all of them have been apart of defining moments in WWE history.


Though by time all of those vets are gone, we'll be calling people like Cena,Orton the vets of the WWE and many guys who still have lots to learn will be much better in a few years once others leave.

There's lots of talent outside of WWE too so it doesn't seem like they'll end up running out of talent either. Right now is the most depth WWE has ever had in their roster in its history.

No, there's guys coming through now that I like enough to keep watching. To be honest the only Attitude Era stars that I still mark for are Jericho and Christian. There's plenty of younger superstars that keep me interested, CM Punk, ADR, Barrett, Gabriel, Miz, Sheamus, hell even Swagger is growing on me of late.

No i would not stop watching WWE. I would miss guys like Goldust, Jericho and Taker etc. But we will always have great talent like Kaval, Bryan and Del Rio

if i ever stop watching it will have nothing to do with who's wrestling. more so maybe phasing out of it but ill always come back to it. i love the new blood in the wwe now id rather the vets leave sooner than later so the young guys can become top guys.
