So, a bunch of us med students got hospital positions for class. On lunch we all sit together and recently 3 of them are always talking about RAW on Tuesdays. When I was a kid I LOVED NWO and Attitude Era and ar some point I stopped watching.
Is it worth getting into again? I hear them talking all the time about how everything is shit now and how Vince keeps pushing The Rock's cousin or something. I did watch the video of the Dudley's returning, that was pretty cool.
OP here, just looked up Roman Reigns. I assume this Rock's cousin the guy Vince is pushing hard. Also, I just saw a video of his mic skills. He's like fucking Psycho Sid mic skill tier. It's real bad.
Did WWF do anything after they bought WCW?
The WWE right now has one of the most stacked rosters from a purely wrestling standpoint. They've been gutting indie promotions left and right of some of the most talented wrestlers of this generation. From a purely wrestling standpoint, modern WWE is miles above the Attitude Era roster. The problem though is the product as a whole is boring as shit. The writers are shit. The booking is shit. Even those wrestlers I mentioned that are pretty much godlike in the ring are only mediocre to bad on the mic/entertainment side of things. Also, don't listen to the WWEcucks that are undoubtedly going to show up and try to >outlaw wrestling meme me to death.

There's plenty of great "entertainers" on the WWE roster, but you'll never get to see that on RAW
He's ascended into a legitimate corporate roll in the company. When Vince dies, he and Steph will have free reign to do whatever they want. Also, it's debatable if Triple H taking over will be bad. He's doing alright with his pet projects in NXT.
They made it suck harder.
I watched my first WWF programs via satellite when I was a kid in the 80ies - early 90ies, but being in Scandinavia, the access to the shows was really irregular and unreliable.
Some time after 2000 WWE programs were shown more, at least for a while. I remember the Evolution and HHH being really prominent, but the final WWE events I recall seeing were the deaths of Benoit and Guerrero.
After that, some 5 years went by without me watching WWE at all, until some time 2012-2013 I started watching it again. And in my opinion, the drop in the quality of WWE was much more noticeable then than back in 2000-ish. It was obvious that WWE had turned its product far more politically correct and many times downright into a children's show.

Also he has shit ideas. Daniel Bryan is probably the most over wrestler at the time. Instead of having him win the rumble, Triple H thought it would be a good idea to get his returning buddy Batista to win it instead and main event WrestleMania to cross promote his whole Guardians of the Galaxy fame. The fans didn't like it at all and were very vocal about it.
