    WWE News/Discussion

    On tonights episode of Raw, they announced Batista AKA The Animal will be making his return in a month.

    I don't watch the show very much, but WWE needs Shane McMahon to leave his job in China and come back to the company. I think he was behind the Attitude Era idea, because since he's left, the show hasn't been as great as it was when he was there. Since Cena became big, no one has become an A-Lister.

    One may argue Orton, but they ran out of legends for him to "kill" and he didn't do much except have random feuds with nobodies.

    One may argue Ryback, but they screwed the pooch on that one, because he was the **** until they turned him heel.

    The best is probably Bryan. I hated him and thought they were trying to hard to make him big, but I started to eventually like him, and now he is pretty fun to watch. They kind of killed his excitement though after they took his belt from him.

    Anyhow, since Cena is their biggest guy and they keep building guys up and killing them off, they need to keep bringing back old A-Listers to keep ratings up - Rock, Lesnar, Batista. They need to use these guys to build up future wrestlers, and keep those future wrestlers A-Listers.

    My God, the Dudley brothers were better to watch then 90% of what is on RAW now, and they were probably the easiest creation in the history of fake wrestling.

    I think you're right about Shane. They miss him like they've missed few others.

    Typically, the people that abuse the WWE watchers are doing it while watching soccer, so don't feel too bad about it, Rulzzz.

    This is when it all started. WWE went from showing blood at damn near every PPV to essentially vowing never to do it again.

    I still watched for awhile after that....I stopped watching when they started doing all the quick zoom in/zoom out nonsense with the cameras during "big hits." I want to enjoy watching decent wrasslin,' not get motion sickness.

    Re: WWE News/Discussion

    Great topic. I was just thinking the other day how awesome pro wrestling was my senior year of high school/freshman year of college in 1996 and 97. You had the birth of the NWO and rise of WCW while you had the birth of the Attitude Era in the WWF. Lines were crossed, rules were forgotten, weekly promos and shoots were epic...it was can't miss TV.

    I haven't been able to watch the WWE in a while...not since CM Punk dominated the summer of 2011 with his anti establishment pipe bomb shoots. The Rock-Cena buildup was entertaining the first time but having the same exact thing the next year was beating a dead horse. Cena makes it unwatchable for me. Randy Orton is bland. Daniel Bryan is cool but how long can they ride his gimmick.

    They just don't have the stable of personalities like in the glory years of 97-2003. The great feuds were endless...Bret-Shawn, Stone Cold-Rock, Bret-Stone Cold, Rock-Triple H, Stone Cold-Triple H, Stone Cold-Vince. Then you had guys like Undertaker, Mick Foley, Jericho and Kane to mix in.

    I love youtube because you can go back and watch all that classic stuff...the early NWO stuff and the mutual realistic hatred of Bret and Shawn when both are heels in 1997 are the best

    The storyline that had just happened prior to the benoit incident was vince's limo being blown up.

    I'm guessing they aren't going to do anything like this on next week's Raw

    USA fined them after this, and the WWE had no idea he was bringing out a gun, even though it was fake.
