Wrestling's been going on forever, professional wrestling almost just as long.

Throughout this time the typical wrestling fan has held onto this idea that wrestling is the best thing in the world, it isn't.

Wrestlers die, too much time away from family and friends, hardly a substantial financial reward for effort (unless you're the biggest star), the industry isn't respected by the mainstream and the fans are so incredibly fickle that it's impossible to please them anymore. That's one of the reasons why they die and fall off the straight path. They're not appreciated. Doesn't matter what they do. If Vince McMahon's wants them to be appreciated, then they will be momentarily.

You know who you're, and you are the problem.

If you're that wrestling fan who continues to relive past era's, if you're that wrestling fan that talks about television ratings, wrestlers are not good because they can't draw and complain that the storylines suck...well then you need to just quietly fuck off back to your parents basement. I am absolutely tired of cynical wrestling fans clogging up this forum. There's a fine line between positive and negative opinions, and then there's this cynical attitude that poisons this forum, it's unbearable.

A great example is Hulk Hogan. One of the greatest in the history of this business, took it off the ground and gave us the Monday Night Wars because of the NWO. Hogan is so great however he's consistently insulted by a few fucking ......s on this forum. You know the day he dies it's the same fucking ......s who will be sucking his dead dick and reliving his past glory.

Last night was just a laugh for me, people complaining about Brock's loss and Jericho's return however these guys delivered one of the best shows in years! Three matches were worthy of four stars last night and people still complained, this forum baffles me. You guys need a chick to fuck the shit out of, if that happens then you might not be so cynical.

This thread is not a popularity vote, I know they'll be a lot of people bagging the shit outta me however I expect that because YOU are who I'm taking about. Fuck off. Seriously fuck off.

Not wrestling fans no, internet wrestling fans, yes.

Although I'm a part of it and i dont deny it, I completely despise the 'IWC' and I dont even try to hide my contempt. The dirtsheets, and all the wrestling news site, and full of complete and utter morons. And then you have the ones on facebook and youtube....jeez....dont even start me on those.

Whine, bitch and complain about every last thing, nitpick to fuck every single second of a show, and talk a load of fabricated BS with no evidence or knowledge to back it up.

Agreed, Internet Wrestling Fans, absolutely. Don't you feel like it's getting worse? The good is now bad, the bad is horrendous.

Excellent rant.

I would say, SOME wrestling fans are the worst.
This forum is truly home to some of the biggest idiots I've ever come across.

However we all share one thing, well most of us share this thing, and that is: we love wrestling.

Some people are just way too biased and illogical, some are brats who only want their guys to win and can't enjoy the product unless their guy wins,
and some are nostalgic and clinging on to times waaaaaay long gone.

I just think people need to keep this in perspective: things aren't always going to go the way you want and that's okay. You can't please everyone. Regardless of who wins & who loses somebody complains. I just wish that when people complain its worth complaining over and that they are logical in their arguments.

This isn't the psychiatrists office where you come in and vent hoping to find an echo chamber, its a place to DISCUSS & DEBATE story lines, wrestlers & matches.

I think Billy Connolly said it best when he said.

If you don't like what I say and do, move your fat bastard thumb and change the channel!!!

The only thing worse than people who bitch about everything are people who bitch about the bitchers. That's you, OP.
The only thing worse than people who bitch about the bitches, are people who bitch about those that bitch about the bitches. That's you, Cynic.

So OP, how many Wrestlers do you hate/dislike? Be honest.
Why would I hate or dislike someone who is just doing their job?

I dislike many things in the industry, but also recognise the things that I like. That's called a balanced positive/negative viewpoint and I never insulted those that think this way.

I clearly stated in my OP that the people who consistently iron out the negative are what I dislike.

I think maybe 50% of us (and by us I mean the internet fanbase) can have a debate about wrestlers/booking without the need for flaming or calling one an other a troll etc and admit to being entertained and not feeling ashamed about it but it's just the other 50% that really do let the side down, the type of people who do nitpick and those who wish death/injury to people who go out there to entertain us and to be quite frankly honest if you wish injury on any WWE superstar then you are a disgrace and you should be banned from this forum.

Those Rock marks are the worst, especially Rock316AE. That's a Rock/Stone Cold/Attitude Era mark rolled into one and he comes up with the dumbest arguments.

IMO, someone who has that one track mindset is not a true wrestling fan. If you are going to base an opinion on your like/dislike for a wrestler and not look at the big picture, you are not a true fan, you're just a biased idiot. If you refuse to acknowledge and respect the roots of the sport, you are not a true fan. A true fan can hate Hulk Hogan to death but respect what he did for the company.


Not sure if people get what I am trying to say. It's late and I am tired so it might not be totally clear.
