Also if your given name is shit, change it.
Don't force it upon your son like that somehow legitimises it. It just makes two dickheads called Dorrance.
Because women in that era were named things like Edith and Agnes, so they really had no room to judge.

Man, I remember HATING The Dark Knight. What a shitty Batman movie. Why couldn't it be like the Adam West Batman? And those Avenger movies sure suck.

Fucking hate that I can order food on my phone now. Or find someone to fuck without actually going out to club. And don't get me started on not needing to carry around cash and being able to make immediate transactions between accounts on the go. Man! EVERYTHING was better as a kid!

So pissed off they can treat my elderly mom with modern medicine too. Fucking sucks. I liked it better when she DIDN'T have a hope.

Hated that new RTJ album. Hated that new video game. Hate fucking Ozark and having access to streaming services on my phone.

Papa Shango, IRS and Tugboat were shit, by the way. And they're not blameless in why people make fun of wrestling.

Fucking hell, that was stupid.

Wrestling was better when I was younger simply based on the fact that I could watch Raw without camera cuts giving me a stroke.

Meltzer said Braun Strowman vs Drew McIntyre, Roman Reigns vs The Fiend, Bayley vs Sasha and Otis vs Brock have been discussed as a possible WrestleMania 37 main-events.

Meh on that first matchup but Reigns vs. Fiend sounds interesting and something that's been rumored to be in the works for some time now.

Going to be very interesting in seeing how they make the Fiend a face considering the character is anything but that. Only fear is WWE watering the Fiend down a lot to make that potential idea happen.

And The Friend will come down to the Firefly Funhouse music. He will change his finisher to a hug after a kiss on the forehead, then give his opponent the big W via walking out of the match waving and smiling to his friend.

I'm guessing whoever did the editing on this wasn't too clued in about wrestling, Macho goes for a backdrop on Flair and it's edited into the top rope Flair fling, Hogans entire moves of doom are all over the place, Vader is again wearing his singlet back to front, and the edited in sounds are really bad.

Matter of opinion:

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/...e-of-wrestling


If anything the MNW were the last time it really peaked and had a ton of interest Globally, and that's over 20 years ago now.

Now it's just mundane shit with Promos that sound like they're being delivered at gunpoint, everyone talks the same way, everyone uses the same sad little "Vince'isms" in their Promos.

If anything the MNW were the last time it really peaked and had a ton of interest Globally, and that's over 20 years ago now.

Now it's just mundane shit with Promos that sound like they're being delivered at gunpoint, everyone talks the same way, everyone uses the same sad little "Vince'isms" in their Promos.
I would say 1983 is the peak but yeah it hasn't reached close to the MNW heights

Whatever plans WWE had for Retribution got put on hold for at least the next 2 weeks since the group got placed quarantined due to being in recent contact with someone who tested positive for the coronavirus. None of the 5 members tested positive though.

Also seems Nia Jax wasn't that happy with WWE's announcement of her and Shayna being pulled from Clash of Champs since that quickly led to rumors going around that they were among those who tested positive for the coronavirus.

Just heard this amazing angle that never came to be from the one of the owners of the Global Wreatling Federation in the early 90s.

The idea was a Vietnamese wrestler who they said was a former Vietcong would debut with a dog tag around his neck. Week after week a family would come out upset and asking why this guy was wearing their father/husbands dog tag around his neck. Eventually the wrestler would turn to the family and point to his stomach insinuating he ate him.

Lol amazing.

I notice the question is "why i stopped watching professional wrestling " not "why i stopped watching WWE" cause the later could probably have an answer of "started watching other wrestling like AEW"

I think actual in ring wrestling has tended to get better as ive gotten older but the older stuff is more memorable even if a lot of it was terrible but younger me liked storylines more, now I am more a fan of the actual wrestling

The poll was mpstly about WWE and less about wrestling in general since that was the only company discussed in the article.

For the most part, people equate "pro wrestling" with WWE in the US.

They collected the following data on reasons why United States viewers stopped watching pro wrestling on TV:

* 30% - It seemed more cartoonish than when I liked it
* 29% - Storylines were not as good/interesting
* 28% - Characters were not as good/interesting
* 26% - Matches were not as good/interesting
* 14% - The content was more geared toward children
* 9% - Announcing was not as good
* 7% - The show wasn't listening to the fans
* 24% - Other
* 12% - Not sure
