    I never get tired of steve austin's radio show. I don't know why, but it's just awesome to hear former wrestlers talk about the sport. Be it a ring announcer, interviewer, radio show whatever. I guess that is just true of every sport out there, you need people in the business interviewing people so the next generation gets a history lesson, and serious talk about where the sport is and what direction it is headed. I'd love to see steve on TSN sometime actually.

                          The biggest change wasn’t even the company. I doubt it was the times. Wrestling in general isn’t the same as it was. They hype isn’t there anymore in a lot of sports. If The Rock, Steve Austin Hulk Hogan, Batista, Edge, Hardy—if everybody came back. It would not be the same. Now yeah, it’s not the brutal thing it was back in the day, there’s too much damn talking and whatnot. As if people don’t realize everybody doesn’t need to be a writer. The product has declined. They’ve been writing guys fighting for years, it’s gonna get dry in terms of setups. every once in a while. But also, the fans aren’t the same. People used to watch WWE and just have fun. They used to just tune in and be in awe. But now everyone’s a critic. That being said, I think the matches are fantastic but the other stuff, It doesn’t have the same heart.

                                Wrestling is being ruined by non wrestling fans who are hired to script wrestling shows.

                                        Steve is right. The belts mean nothing. Doesn’t help that they keep crowning a universal champion that only wrestles and defends once a month, if that.

                                              Attitude era was the golden age of wrestling. It can't be duplicated. It's like the 80s for basketball with magic Johnson , Larry bird, and michael Jordan . That cant be matched so you have to find ways to stay relevant with new stars without pissing the crowd off by copycatting the golden age of wrestling. You cant duplicate having the rock, stone cold, shawn, angle, Jericho, hhh, Foley as the top stars. It was fresh and edgy and 0cant be duplicated. The guys that should be pushed today are guys who would've thrived then. We have guys now that are great! Drew, roman, Daniel Bryan, seth, braun, bray. There is potential for this era to stand out as well. Sorry so wordy.

                                                It’s alllllllll comes down to ONE question. Is the product for US the fans, or is it made to be a squeaky clean product for advertisers? I think we all know the answer...

                                                  The whole of WWE is both too committes and not committed enough to their characters.

                                                          I know this was published in 2018 but i think one of my posts should be here as it makes most sense.

                                                          Why cant i follow wrestling anymore?

                                                          It simple. Picking it up i cant imagine the fighting of what their selling.

                                                          Like here is a wrestling example today that works.
                                                          Abyss, rosemary, su young, heck dark allie.
                                                          That above...yes its kayfabe as hell...and obviously phony as fuck....but give me one time slot and those names above having a match and add say the new day wwe choice.
                                                          Ill pick either abyss, or the 3 tna knockouts over say the new day, seth rollins, anyday of the week.
                                                          And the reason isnt simple fandom.
                                                          I used the above as an example to showcase how something in wrestling can be totally fake...but the tna example is buyable...its like okay this story is semi credible enough to get immersed and the moves in the match become sellpoints.

                                                          On the otherhand...give me something as undigestible the new day talk(no beef...i like upupdowndown channel too)
                                                          But xavier woods or 90% of em...dont talk like people who engage in violence...cant buy Not one bit.
                                                          It needs to be consistent to getting into the ring and most of the time...the gimmick is too corny in wwe defeat any potential selling from then on.

                                                          Like a good example of something that works in wwe well is here.
                                                          Stone cold steve Austin.
                                                          We all know that what he portrayed is different onstage.
                                                          But lets be honest man...ppl were literally assuming stone cold was straight up homicidal exconvict man....why cuz he portrayed that.
                                                          So when he stepped into the wasjt corny..and him being 6'10ish...the dude str8 tall was corny...wasnt bogus(as far as kayfabe ish as wwe really is)
                                                          It wasnt so bogus.

                                                          On the otherhand compare a stone cold to say a 5'6ish...power of positivity talker.
                                                          Like say kofi kingston...its like okay..
                                                          He got a good game channel.
                                                          But being homicidal enough to engage in that looka mega bonus...if they would cast him more violent or something storyline digestible.
                                                          Kofi...and wwe..could be watchable.
                                                          WWE is too cartoony i guess u could say.
                                                          And while yes...the tna side in example is cartoonish and ghoulish.
                                                          But the sale...well its crazy enough to sell wrestling.
                                                          WWE doesnt do that much...give me a crazy or tough or believeable presence.

                                                          I know soo many ppl hate on the physical stuff...but theres alot of the physical sell man.
                                                          A build like bayley doesnt cut it in the credible defense

                                                          Sell the story believably...have a good match....have the story semirealistic enough.
                                                          You will get an audience.
                                                          People complain about this cuz they dont have a clue as to what goes into their heads prior to opening their mouth.
                                                          And while everyone is different...give me something to digest in...give a good performance...ill like it...and so will most.

                                                          Every boring rating i know....fails to capitalize on either surreal credible story telling or good entertaining wrestling spots.
                                                          Look at urself man.
                                                          If the story character dont look dangerous.
                                                          Why should we wanna follow it?...the ring defeats the story.
                                                          I mean listen to virgins offense...just saying. More wwe toons needs more psychopathy man...cuz u cant deny the sheer legit violence in it...we all know its a story.
                                                          Anyways peace...and wrestlers please dont cry wwe about ur stock...listen to my advice and do something about it.
                                                          And fans...instead of crying all the time.
                                                          Learn how ur mind actually works when u watch a match...and share it by bugging.wwe to death.

                                                          After all wrestling has roots in gladiator stuff with all its showmanship.
                                                          Its one thing to survive street violence...and its another to promote arena showmanship.
                                                          WWE needs to sell us on credible psychological champions.
                                                          Twitter crybabies just dont cut it.
                                                          Just saying.
                                                          Hope this helps...peace.

WWE doesn't listen to the crowd anymore. That's why Roman sucks , it's why Jericho was great.

                                                                Along with all the other obvious issues with WWE, I think one huge thing that is missing especially for me is the mystique. Back in the good ole' days, especially the attitude era, We were never in the know!! This kept us craving more one week to the next.
                                                                Also, over exposure! These days the internet and social media is so in our face the WWE and the superstars are so overly exposed it becomes too much, especially the characters the superstars are trying to display.. there is no keeping us wondering and on edge for what happens next anymore.

                                                                            • Sheldon Rhymes
                                                                              Sheldon Rhymes  3 months back

                                                                              He is making a lot of valid points. I think that Vince Russo's problem is not that he doesn't know what he's talking about is that he doesn't know what to do about it which is probably why he's not writing anymore, however his passion is still there honestly everybody has been saying this and everybody knows it's the truth. Vince McMahon is THEE main problem, he's lost touch, he's hired hack writers, and he's micro managed everything to the point where it's become a shit product and he can't get over his own ego to see that he himself is running the WWE into the ground.

                                                                              How do you solve the problem? I believe Vince Russo has a point on this, i think that the talent (and i think they're starting to wake up now and realize this) needs to say NO when they know something is not gonna work and gonna stifle their creativity and ultimately fuck their image up in the company. Yes you take a risk, yes you could lose your job but the more and more of the talent that stands up and says "hey, this is bullshit i won't do this" the more Vince and the writing team is forced to listen.

                                                                              The talent needs to stop playing it safe and take a risk not only in saying no to shitty creative directions but also in inventing themselves on T.V. just like Austin and The Rock and many others would do in the attitude era. They need to push then envelope and do something that goes against the script and birth something on their own that is either gonna be a big hit or is gonna flop and either sink or swim not just play it safe and read out a boring old stale predictable script that everyone can see coming from a mile away. They need to take the predictability out of their product because that's how the attitude era worked, like Steve Austin said anything could and did happen week after week.

                                                                              Another problem they have is they keep recycling their old tired acts especially of the likes but not limited to Brock Lesnar. Money in the bank and Extreme Rules last night were prime examples of how boring and shitty the product has become "Brock Lesnar comes in keeps the title for like a whole year, doesn't appear on T.V. for 3/4's of it, loses the belt for 2 or 3 PPV's and comes back and steals it again" BORING nobody and i mean NOBODY wants to see that shit. Steve Austin himself even said this that the belts have no meaning anymore. Nobody gave a fuck about the Universal Championship when it was unveiled and nobody did until Seth Rollins took it and made it relevant again and now look.. It's back in the hands of a part timer who doesn't care about the business and shows up maybe 2 or 3 events out of the year like why? STOP.. MAKING.. PART TIMERS.. MAIN EVENT ATTRACTIONS! I am a fan of Goldberg, The Undertaker, Kane, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin (not so much Brock Lesnar) and i love seeing them come back and do something every now and then but they are no longer main eventers nor should they be. Find a way to bring them back, make an event impactful without stepping on the toes of the newer talent and making them look like jokes because the talent won't flourish that way, they'll just continue to get buried by them and also stop fucking making 30 minutes matches because that isn't really doing any good either and actually damaging the image of legends like The Undertaker and Goldberg for example in their Super showdown match that was a disgrace!

There needs to be a viable competitor for WWE. Back in the day, the wrestlers had the territories. They had options to go from one territory to another, hone their craft, learn from territory promoters and area stars, as they were all different styles. Wrestlers traveled together, driving in cars for hours at a time, so they had time to talk, to bounce ideas off each other, to come up with the ideas organically without writers and road agents breathing down their neck. Now the product is streamlined, overproduced and completely artificial. Wrestling as we know it is finished unless there can be a rival promotion that can compete with WWE
