Default The WWE thread!

Any WWE fans out there? Here's a thread for all WWE discussions! Talk about the recent show or your favorite superstar or the pay per views or pretty much anything that goes on in the WWE universe.

Was my favourite show about 10 yrs back (when i was 16).
Infact, i used to rent VHS of wrestle Mania, Royal Rumble etc. My Favourite superstars from that time were Undertaker, YokoZuna, Razor Ramon and Hitman. Undertaker of those days had a different Aura- something the current Undertaker fails to match.

Later on superstars like Steve Austin, The Rock came along. I left watching after finished schooling.

Ditto here. Used to watch these shows when yokozuna, razor ramon, hitman, 123 kid, lex luger, Diesel, shawn michels , rick flair , ludvig Borga etc were around, but after that i lost interest. After a certain time, the acts became more and more bizzare and dramatic so lost interest with too much of over acting. My favourite though was the undertaker. I briefly watched a couple of episodes where our own kali the great took part but.

I was so into it until I saw their live show in bangalore in the 90's. It was so much like a STAGE(d) SHOW. I was sad and lost interest.

I follow UFC now

I used to be a fan back when it was called WWF. And yes the Undertaker (Mark Calloway) is my all time favorite superstar!!! He's awesome. The whole dark gothic persona with the darkness, fog, coffins, urns full of ashes, eyes rolling back into his head and the bell that spells doom for his opponents! The Undertaker pulls it all off so well! No one has ever walked to the ring like this guy, dark, menacing, evil and yet so damn cool! Him and the Ultimate Warrior were the coolest wrestlers!

Used to watch the show long back when The Hitman (Bret Hart) was competing. Stopped watching after he left.

These days, I quite like Randy Orton. He can play the heel character very well and unlike some of the wrestlers in WWE (notably John Cena), Randy Orton can actually pull off some great wrestling moves. His drop kicks alone are so well done that you feel like applauding him.

1) I like Undertaker and Kane.
Kane is most under utilized wrestler. I think he still can take off from where Undertaker leaves off. Undertaker must now gracefully retire and let Kane handle the fights.
Both have got awesome power. Kane particularly is very strong. Only Mark Henry and Great Khali have better bench press abilities.

2) WWE is fixed and fake for sure. But is good entertainer, but sort of fantasy.
The way people have spoiled their lives is very bad.

Batista for example has taken excessive drugs. He was not taken out in WWE Wellness Policy because he was so much in demand. He is the one who left his wife when she was suffering from Cancer ( read this on net ).

A good time pass, but if you have better things to do, no point in watching this.

Big fan of this. Me and my friend in the hostel formed the "Too Cool" tag team in our hostels own tourney.
I used to love the hardy boys stunts. Was breathtaking to say the least.

Got myself chokslammed once and god it hurt.
Friends did the best closeline on the ground i have ever seen. It was to be seen to be believed.

PS: This was in school 10 years back so please dont get to advicing. I know the stunts should not be tried at home. We were young and jobless

Used to religiously follow when in school. Now a days i find it staged. I mean i find even the older versions (Hitman, undertaker etc etc) staged. Probably I have grown up

It isn't real wrestling, the E stands for Entertainment. It's all staged, 'nuff said.

Same here, lost interest after he quit.

Still used to catch up sometimes off-late only because of Shwan Michaels, but now just lost interest.

Entertainment for young kids till 18 yrs of age, but later we get cought with other things.

So? Almost all the fans know that. Besides, you don't go to the movies and complain that James Bond isn't really saving the world, do you?
