    I watch wrestling all of the time, and it has definitley changed since WWE bought WCW. The lack of competition has led to things be pretty predictable.
    It still has it's moments though.

    Can honestly say that I never watched wrestling or was the least bit interested in it. :eek: :)

    I agree with you. The writing is terrible and TNA isn't any competition...yet.

    TNA has potential, but it seems like they're just trying to reinvent a mix of old WCW and old ECW, and it's just not working. Nobody has been able to imitate ECW, it had it's own special flavour to it that just can't be duplicated.
    As for WCW, why would you want to imitate that crap?
    It's good to see Christian with the belt in TNA though, lets hope he can do something special there.

    Ya, WWE already brought back the nWo (since they own the copyright to it) and it failed miserably. They even had Hogan, Hall and Nash doing it, but it was a flop. It did lead to the most amazing match I ever witnessed live though, which was the Rock vs Hogan at the Skydome in Toronto at Wrestlemania X8. It wasn't the best wrestling match I've ever seen, but the atmosphere was intense. I've never heard so many people chanting so loud, and I was in the press box!
    It was one of those moments that I'm going to remember for a long, long time.

    I too remember the days when i thought it was enjoyable to watch, very now and then I switch by it and watch for a few minutes and I almost laugh at what crap it is......

    Professional wrestling has been in a nosedive and a tailspin since 2000 or 2001. During the late 90s, it was at its most recent peak. Since then, and especially since WWE bought WCW, it's been all downhill.

    TNA ("Total Non-stop Action") Wrestling is trying to shake the boat a bit, and they have a lot of old WWF/WCW talent in their roster, so we may see another relatively major player soon.

    Yeah, I used to watch it about 20 years ago when I was little, and then watched it again for amusement value in the late 90s, but it just isn't the same...

    And they were still awesome at the time of Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock. The SCSA vs. McMahon feud and The Rock vs. Mankind feuds are awesome. The day the WWF bought the WCW is the day they started to suck ass.

    Agreed. The storylines they had going on pre-WCW were classic, my best friend and I would make a point of watching them solely for entertainment value as a "male soap opera" every week. Now it's just tired and boring... :(

    I remember when WCW 1st came in...i was praying that WWF would reject them and just take in ECW but WCW(i dont like any of there line up except the steiner bros,NWO..Buff?:confused: ) just added their boring-ness acts to it and transform it to one big crap bag.

    When we upgraded our TV package to include the sports channels we started to watch a bit of the WWE wrestling, and we were pleasantly surprised at how entertaining it actually is. Granted, it's not Shakespeare, but after you've come in from the pub on a Friday evening it's a bit of a giggle. :cool:
