The Amazing Atheist is in his 30's and isn't ashamed of it. Personally I don't see the appeal when you can clearly see punches and kicks not even connecting half the time.

I'm 26 and I still read One Piece. I grew up with it, I'm not going to stop reading it just because I reached a certain age.

If possible I will watch it until the end of my days with a pride smile on my face and a fist into the face of any little nerd who tryna tell me it's not good or whatever. Pro-wrestling is the basis for a society of men, and not the effeminate "depressed/anxious" proto-girls we have as males nowadays. You get to watch strong men with solid senses of morals fighting for good to rule upon evil, represented by the Heel characters, the villainous figures that get beaten at the final moment, so that the children at the audience see that a man's duty in life is to channel his strength and efforts into spreading good on the world, being it by beating up a half-naked bloke or not.

Pro-wrestling is an essential part of the western society.

also fuck communism, kill all muslims and make america great again

Am 23 and I still play yugioh. Wrestling was entertaining when I first got into it.

Which one do you prefer WWE, Raw, TNA, Lucha?

Lucha Underground is the only acceptable wrestling show

I can't get into today's product.

> promo segments take up most of the show
> no clear cut super stars like the Rock, Austin, Hogan or Savage
> smart marks have too much say in the direction of the shows - assholes take over the show with their chants in some cities

I just watch old videos. I was mostly a TV fan in the 80s and 90s, so I missed most of the PPV material. There is enough on Youtube to keep me occupied for years.

I used to hate him but he was literally the Chad of WWE. I also think that WWE is the same as Dragon Ball Z - it's only entertaining in early - mid teens, after that it becomes too awkward to watch.

I wish there was a more consistent weekly show that could compete with WWE. ROH is kinda eh, lucha underground and TNA I cant really get into. New Japan is awesome but with a lot of talent out on injury/taken by WWE I'm worried about how it'll be in the future. Hopefully they build up Shibata or something and Ibushi comes out of his injury soon. With both Ibushi and Kenny Omega in the main event picture its going to be fucking amazing.

Watch all the shows every week as its one of the few shows that are always new, granted some parts of the shows are recaps. I do not have the network though. I was actually somewhat surprised at Haitch getting the belt at RR.

People who appreciate performance art should be somewhat impressed by wrestling in general because, even with creative editing and planned spots, the performers still need to perform the actions and hopefully make them look believable. There's also the delicate balancing act of having wrestlers lose while not looking weak.

So mr 24 yr old, the only thing I can say is that i am sorry you were born in an era where wrestling is viewed as a male soap opera, because when this was starting to get big with the then wwf competing with wcw in the late 90's there was more talking than actual wrestling. But as someone who has watched and gone to wrestling shows from the age of 4 I could tell you that the wrestling is more dynamic today than it was then, but you've missed out on my favorite move which was common place - the pile diver. But you got the power bomb and tables in its place. We lost the blood matches but got ladders. In fact all matches were blood matches back in Hawaii. Kevin Sullivan, bruiser Brody, super fly jimmy snuka, the rocks dad rocky Johnson, high chief peter maivia, the wild samoans, king tonga, even the Von erics, flair, Andre, and King Kong bundy were all wrestlers I saw as a youth in the 80s. And they all bled... Chairs all the time, fighting in the crowd, barriers were the old school railings.

In the end its fun and there's always re-watch value for matches that might actually be good.

what really annoys me is that the current crop of boys can actually wrestle a good match, but the story lines suck so bad it ruins everything

back in the day Austin could only throw 100 punches and kicks and no one gave a shit cuz the story was so good

I think edge was awesome

And of course in the 90s the nwo

Today the wrestlers are kinda boring tbqh

We had nwa, awa, wccw, the Hawaii promotion, on tv all the time. All the famous guys, the funk brothers, Harley race, etc were on those shows, with very little promos.

Ultimately the fed has ruined the diversity of wrestling, but as I said the matches themselves are sometimes still fun to watch, and a good wrestling match transcends space and time...
>>
I watched an episode of Raw recently just cause and nearly all the superstars were so boring. Reigns seems like a terrible 'face of the company.'

The only mildly entertaining ones were the New Day, and that's pretty bad considering they're supposed to be heels.

My fucking blanco. I too love One Piece.

Anyways as far as wrestling goes, the "Attitude" era was probably the best. At least in my mind. I understand why they moved away from that though.

Don't get me wrong here. I love the old guys, but ultimately I feel that this old blood is holding the promotion back. I've seen enough,of rock Jericho flair etc. (sadly even Kane) UT, even bork. Even jerry said it that "if it didn't happen in the wwe it doesn't matter". Well kind of exactly, so if the wrestler is like mid 20s that's ok because that character can evolve, but trying to re enlist old stars to get some cheap pop from the marks and smarks is just a ploy.

Take this guy stylez, he's about 10 years late. Look at KO, right on time (although 31) We needed Seth, we need some of the guys at nxt (Corbin definitely, the American alphas, And even some of the *gulp* ladies like nia jax) basically we need the new blood.

Agree?

I'm happy that WWE is getting good again. The addition of AJ Styles is incredible, the IC scene is awesome ... but Roman is a fuck and tag team scene is terrible.
>>
>>26111198
Agreed, new blood is needed. But styles is new to the company, brock is cool in short bursts and an insane performer, and rocky always gets a pop. Using these guys to further the newcomers like the wyatts and finn balor (pls against undertaker at wrestlemania) is a good strategy, and I can't see them staying til hey're flairs age.

New age is in need of a push, but push the right stars, not reigns, rollins, and dare I say it cesaro. They just lack the mic work and personality.

Wrestling is probably better now, but i don't get it. Where are the barbers and accountants and morticians? In my day wrestlers were regular joes who fought in the ring of their days off.

I'm 30 and just got back into it last year. I watched from age 8 to when WWF and WCW merged then stopped. Was really into WWF and ECW.

Have a lot of catching up to do, but enjoying it, especially NXT.
