R.I.P. Wrestling

For a good 15 - 20 years now, I have been a devoted die hard wrestling fan. Been to many live events, from Raw, to Smackdown, Summerslam to Wrestlemania. I loved my wrestling, mainly WWE. Back in the days of Monday Night Wars, I refused to watch WCW. I stood loyally by WWE, but would they stand loyally by me? No.

Wrestling is at its worst, the worst it has ever been. A lousy boring champion with not much wrestling skills but manages to defeat and win over anything and anyone. Guys that have been in WWE longer than most that sacrifice their bodies and put it all on the line every night thrown to the side. Its really sad to see it like it is now. John Cena has killed wrestling. My love for it and many others are done now because of him. He is not the one to mainly blame either, Vince McMahon has been producing some of the worst shit ever lately. Bobby Lashley AKA Nergoberg AKA Black Lesnar AKA Talentless muscle bound moron, is ruining things as well.

Also alot of main stars are out of action, which is good to me. Im sick of HBK, Taker, HHH, the same ol same ol guys doing the same shit day in and day out. I saw this as a chance for guys like Jeff Hardy to finally get pushed and have their moment in the light. Nope. Instead what do we get? John Cena vs The Great Khali. Two guys that have as much wrestling talent and skills as my right hand. And instead of matches putting over guys and giving them a push, we got 4 matches with Bobby Lashley last night. What the fuck?

There is nothing left. TNA puts on some decent shows, but nothing to ever really hook me and draw me into it. WWE just puts on crap every Monday night, that I havent watched in over a month now. Nothing interesting, nothing awesome. Remember the ol saying, "Anything can happen here in the WWE!" Well thats how it used to be, but its gone now. Nothing can happen there but pure shit. I have gone from quitting my job at blockbuster because they were going to make me work on a Monday night. To just, reading the results online. Gone are the days of Bret Hart, Rick Rude, Mr. Perfect, Randy Savage. Guys that had great matches, memorable ones. And now are the days of guys that put on forgettable matches that nobody gives a shit about. Farewell wrestling.


  1. I can't say i'll ever quit wrestling, its in my blood and I could never be away, and I haven't "took a break" or anything from wrestling once in the past 23 years, BUT I must agree, this is the saddest state of WWE i've seen. True some people claim that the "Bret Hart era" in 93 was a downtime in wrestling, but i'd watch that 100 times more than this LashleyFest and Cenathon. WWE has given up on the "Attitude" era, and all "good guys" must love the fans and give them cheezy ass smiles, SO HORRIBLE. Why did Austin become so huge? Because he kicked ass, and then said he didnt give a damn if the fans cheered him or not, he just wanted to kick everyones ass, and people loved it! Ah but whats the use of explaining, WWE is going to MAKE US like Lashley or Cena, whether u want to or not, whatever. Now TNA, they've only been around for 5 years, so i'm giving them a chance. They've made some good moves, got some good talent going, so once they get a 2 hour timeslot, i'm hoping the shits gonna be on. Maybe one day WWE will realize some big muscled up moron coming out giving homo erotic smiles to the crowd, is NOT gonna make a normal straight guy want to buy a ticket to see that show.
