I used to watch wrestling EVERY week. Then I stopped...So WTF has happened in the last 5yrs?

For my younger cats who only know about wrestling 1998 and beyond yall missed ALOT. That bullshit they're showing on TV now is not wrestling, its now a gay soap opera...


Who the fuck is this scrawny kid CM Punk and how the hell did he take over wrestling?


Who are the top wrestlers now?


Is TNA >>> WWE?


Are there some older heads on here that watched NWA?

    The top wrestlers by WWE standards are Ryback, Cena, Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler, Big Show, and Punk. Lesnar & Rock are part-time but obviously they are considered top guys.

    TNA is mostly trash. Their two top stories are a biker gang (of jobbers) and Hulk Hogan's daughter being in love with Bully (Bubba) Ray.

    Thanks yall.. Damn I actually watched his rant on WSHH. Damn he was a champ for 434 days? Well atleast he didn't break Lex Luger's record (5 and some change). Jeff Hardy was the champ? Man I tried but WTF is the MITB?

    I'ma google em but I never even heard of Ryback, Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio, or Dolph Ziggler...SMH





    Damn Ryback got them Lesnar/Batista shoulders!

    Sheamus, okay they got an Irish wrestler

    Alberto looks like a jerkface

    Dolph don't know what to say about him but he currently holds the Money in the Bank Contract (MITB)?! The fuck?!



    I'ma take a wild guess and say that either Sheamus or Dolph are the better wrestlers out the 4.

  • Your right TNA>WWE. TNA has a much better overall roster than the wwe

    The money in the bank is a 6 man ladder match. They usually pretty good. Watch the one from Wrestlemanias 21 & 22 those are the best

    Last time I caught up with TNA Sting was on it.

    *technically its an 8-man ladder match now.

    He's still there too
  • lol i started watchin in 98, i did miss a lot, was heavy into it until bout 03 tho

    actually like i said in another thread until cm punk went off in 2011, i was almost down to casual status, i have a hard time remembering certain moments

    but yea tna>wwe in pure wrestling, kurt angle still a bauce even tho it look like he cant move his head from left to right but wwe>>>>tna in storylines and thats not sayin a whole lot, wwe is SLOWLY starting to emphasize pure wrestling thanks to guys like punk, ziggler, bryan, etc..
  • TNA >>> WWE overall.

    Most current WWE fans are fans of WWE not wrestling. I equate it to being a YMCB fan but not hip hop.

    That being said the talent in TNA is better, production is basically on par, and they finally moved out of the impact zone and doing shows around the world n country, so the emotion/atmosphere is at an all time high.

    That being said, TNA cant match WWEs marketing n overrated hype (what i mean by that every WWE fan always sees a stable n says "New Nwo" or "Return of The Attitude Era" only for it to evaporate in months.

    I still think the best thing about WWE is its PPVs and ability to create new stars seemingly overnight.

    TNA has lots of young new talent but they usually have zero the impact and correct introduction comparable to Sandow, The Shield, Big E, Cesaro and so forth. Its almost so simple I dont know why to this day TNA doesnt get it for the most part.

    That alone had kept my interest in WWE even tho imo they havent been consistently very good since 2005( 2006 was garbage, mid 2007-2008 was borderline good).

    We will see tho. It all comes down to personal taste so I cant blame the WWE fans for being loyal, or the fewer TNA fans for prefering their product either.

    Wwes NXT is the shit btw.

    I don't even bother watchin TNA bruh lol wwe/f is just hard wired in me.

    I started out watchin WCW but I soon as I got a glimpse of wwf I never looked back

    Their story lines have become stale and their characters are weak and not unique; but I stil watch in hopes of it getting better some day

    I do like

    The sheild (especially Seth Rollins and Sean Ambrose)
    Ziggler
    Del rio

  • Ok Tna was kinda good then sucked now is gettin better WWE FUCKIN sucks ass their only saving grace to the true wrestling fans are c.m punk,daniel bryan,and ziggler. ROH is for the wrestling fans
  • I'm like t/s. I haven't watched wrestling in a minute. I only watch the highlights mostly. Where I stopped watchin it is when they were doin the whole guest celeb hosting crap, just so they can promote whateva it was they were promoting. Then injecting them into the storylines made it worse.
