    Use to watch WWF/WWE religiously from mid 90s to early 00s. When Austin and Rock retired it just got worse and worse and just completely sucks now. The new generation of superstars are just awful (Batista, Cena, etc.). Taker's getting on now too and the gimmick has just run dry.

    I really don't like when people generalize like that. "Oh, it sucks now, Austin and Rock are gone, blah blah blah..."

    Batista is gone now, by the way. And there's actually been some interesting booking going on as of late.

    I'm not generalising. I watch it and I get bored. That didn't happen before. Austin & Rock are just examples (two of the better known ones anyway). Bret, Goldberg, Flair, Razor, Sid, Hennig, Foley...there's not even a handful of people worth watching anymore.

    I agree 100%

    I stopped watching wrestling around the time Eddie Guerrero died.........but things really got worse when Chris Benoit died............in a short space of time, two great wrestlers has passed away and WWE went all family friendly!!!!



    John Cena is just plain boring.............
    Batista is just..........
    and The Miz????.....Jack Swagger????.....Dolph Ziggler?????.......Alberto Del Rio????.......wft?????????



    The Undertaker has always been a favourite of mine..........but he needs to retire!!!!!..........

    Another favourite of mine was Chris Jericho.......but he's only half the wrestler he used to be!!!

    Edge is a good wrestler but you cannot compare him to The Rock or Steve Austin (even though he has won more titles)!!!!!

    Randy Orton is the best wrestler today but he can't do much on his own (especially with the current writers they got)!!!

    CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Wade Barrett, Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler (who is a future star by the way), Kofi Kingston, John Morrison. All solid extremely workers, some more entertaining than others, but there's definitely not a lack of talent on the current roster.

    And again, Batista has been gone for a long time. Edge has been stale for years. Orton is the most boring guy in the company, I don't get what people see in him.

    Believe me, I've been actively watching since 1997 and I think the product right now is better than it has been since 2005/2006.

    It's only fair to give newer guys time to develop. Austin didn't walk into the company as Stone Cold. Dwayne didn't walk into the company as The Rock.

    By the way, making the product family friendly is not the huge detriment that everybody seems to think it is. You can produce exciting product without resorting to tacky/inappropriate crap such as the DX reunion.

    the style of the television program has changed and is much more pg, but some of those wrestlers you mentioned, Dolph Ziggler, Alberto Del Rio are up and coming stars. The WWE is lacking star power just now but that can only change by making new stars, which means lots of new faces can't be a bad thing for business down the line. If they keep trying to make stars im sure a few will catch on and move onto bigger and better things.

    The kids love the show and the characters are easy for them to relate to and hate, things get a little gimmicky but thats wrestling for you.

    John Cena is just a joke.

    Don't get me wrong, I can see he has great athleticism and has slammed some heavy heavy people.

    But as an entertainer he sucks. There's just no real charisma. When he first started wrestling and started that god-awful rapping, I thought it was just a corny steaming pile of crap fit for 1993. I don't care if you pump up your little shoes, or have a turny turny title belt, you make me want to squirt vinegar in my eyes and will myself to spontaneously combust.

    That is all.

    He obviously has a great deal of charisma if audiences worldwide love him so much. His character is for the kids. I don't see how that's any different than Hogan.

    I'm not even a Cena fan and I'm sick of the constant bitching about him. He's WAY better than Orton.

    ^^Nope, The Rock will be next year as Wrestlemania will be in Miami. I'm thinking Ted Turner or someone who was involved with WCW since it's in Atlanta, and since they're in their WCW nostalgia right now.

    The Rock is going to host WrestleMania 27, it's being strongly rumoured and they will announce it tomorrow night. Whether he will be there tomorrow night, or be there by sattelite i'm not sure. Proably via sattelite.

    Its even more obvious considering the fact The Rock stated last summer that he was planning something special with Vince McMahon, and he said on Facebook a week or two ago that he would be back sooner than we thought.

    It's going to be The Rock, and it's going to be absolutely...awesome.
