    ill prolly say this era was better than attitude era, at least in terms of wrestling, got to see some people who started off in the attitude era really get to show us what they can do in ring, and paul heyman was able to show why he is a goat when he was given some control over smackdown

    05,06,07 was the Ruthless Aggresion Era too




    As soon as Cena went to RAW in 05 and beat JBL for the title at WM the Ruthless Aggression era was done imo.

    Especially by the time the Spirit Squad came in so I def discount all of 06 and after and most of 05.

    GOAT iron match imo, and something you need to watch form start to beginning to appreciate. (That was 03 or 04 that happened)
    Fuck JBL tho... Give me Eddie.

    Alot of good wrestling.There was alot of crap during that era too.The Necrophilia shit with HHH and Kane and that bullshit with Mae Young,the Tough Contestants.

    It was hard to watch though cause you noticed the drop off in fans until 04,when things stabilized and Cena,Edge,Batista,Orton started taking the reigns.

    IMO it's an underrated era because it was sandwiched in between 2 more succesful and longer eras that had better marketing.Plus most of it was on Spike a channel alot of people still dont get and hate.

    The ruthless agression era ended in 04 imo too.05 is the cena era they already started to clean alot of stuff up.

    The Attitude era is so overated outside of the main event..it's scary.I used to watch the uppercard of RAw and then watch the undercard of WCW for wrestling.

    Nothing beats WCW 96-early 98 man..NOTHING.

    I dont mind the PG era THAT much.Because the angles and the personalities are more clear cut.The WWF had alot of generic guys before this era Snitzky,Maven,even Orton at first?

    I hate extreme shit (necrophilla,drugging the promoters daughter,) and the over top/nothing to do with wrestling type stuff(car bombs,actors winning titles,etc).

    The best stuff has always been wrestling based booking 101(Hogan vs Andre,Bret vs Austin,goldberg streak) or straighforward reality based storyelling and drama(the Nwo)

    why are folks saying things started to clean up after cena won the title in 05? y'all forgot the i quit match between him and jbl a month later? hhh vs. batista in possibly the most vicious hiac match ever? the disturbing mysterio vs. guererro feud where they fought over reys son? edge and lita having sex on raw? the ecw one night stand ppvs? the rated rko vs. dx feud? i remember edge and orton giving flair the one man conchairto twice on raw. flair could pass for a dead man in that segment. batista vs. taker hiac match was brutal as well. orton punting niggas heads off. orton vs. hhh last man standing at no mercy. that match was ill

    yet the wwe was cleaning up? lol they didn't clean up officially until they switched to PG in mid 08. they still had a few edgy matches/moments after benoits murder-suicide

    gotta c/s them not cleaning up until after benoit died, ruthless aggression lasted at least 4 good years, cena got to the main event in that time but niggas werent close to toning it down yet, tlc main events for the title, cena gettin in matches that end in blood bath, shit, they even had a couple brutal ecw events

    Hassan would've been a monster heel, but they fucked up.

    Why is every foreign character anti-American? LOL it's an old ass concept.

    Hassan's mistake was a coincidence. They just happened to do a terrorist like scene the same week a terrorist attack happened. That's why I don't think Swagger's character has a chance to go very long.


    Guerrero's heel turn was epic. Him force feeding Rey twizzlers is one of my favorite moments of his career. I haven't eaten twizzlers since then either.
