I’ll take long breaks from watching WWE from time to time ’cause why? A lot of times WWE would get so bad in their storylines and matches. A lot of people would accuse me of being a die-hard WWE follower but I’m not really. I like to watch WWE on and off. I’m not all that obsessed with wrestling like a lot of people say. I’m more into old-school wrestling than today’s wrestling to be honest. I was more into 80’s wrestling and the Attitude Era in the 90’s is what I was mostly into. I continued to watch WWE over the years but once again, “on” and “off”.
I’ve just started watching RAW again after a long break from it. Sometimes I’ll tune into RAW again to see what’s going on. In this new era of WWE, they are calling it the “New Era”. Why? It’s simply because there are nothing but new and young talent on the WWE roster. Most of the old iconic stars and veterans of WWE has moved on and retired (like Stone Cold, HBK, Edge, the Hardy Boys, Trish Stratus, Lita, Ric Flair, CM Punk, Kurt Angle, etc.).
Now WWE has signed a bunch of new talent that I’ve never heard before. Honestly, I’m not that crazy about most of the new talent but so far my favorites are AJ Styles, Charlotte Flair, Finn Balor and Nattie Neidhart.
I remember I used to watch AJ Styles on TNA Impact a lot and I always knew that guy would make it in the WWE one day and now AJ Styles is WWE Champion. AJ Styles is awesome. I wish Sting would stick around a little longer ’cause I think a Sting vs. AJ Styles match would be awesome. I’m pretty sure Aj Styles and Sting had matches together before in TNA. It be cool if they had one in WWE.
While most of the legends have retired and gone, there are still longtime WWE stars who are still around like John Cena, Chris Jericho, Randy Orton, Triple H, Goldust, The Undertaker, Big Show and Kane. Those guys are still around… The Rock still works in WWE but occasionally, though.
As far as John Cena goes, I don’t really hate him anymore and I think I’m a fan of his now. I’ve been watching a lot of old Wrestlemania’s on WWE Network and Cena gained my respect through that. Whether you like Cena or not, you can’t deny that Cena puts on really exciting matches. The guy works hard. He’s the hardest working guy in WWE by far. I’m not a Cena hater anymore, in fact I’m a big fan now. It’s the guy’s work ethic is what’s impressing me about him. Plus Cena is a great performer too.
I’m still a fan of WWE though. I still respect what those guys do. While many don’t like wrestling, the haters of WWE don’t want to admit that they do a good job entertaining people.
Yeah, WWE is fake and scripted. I always knew that and when people tell me that, I just laugh it off and ignore ’em. I just watch WWE for “entertainment” ’cause I respect them for what they do. They’re good performers and they sacrificed a lot of things just to be on the road 24/7 entertaining people. People don’t want to admit what they do is “courageous”.
One thought on “Thoughts on the “New Era” in WWE so far…”
I’m more of a Cena fan than I was BUT watching him over the years does frustrate me, especially considering the amount of talent her buried over time. I was always more of an Edge fan.
