WWE Then and Now

Does anyone long for the days of the WWF with superstars such as Hulk Hogan, the Ultimate Warrior, "The Model" Rick Martel, The Warlord, Slick, "The Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiasi and The Honkey Tonk Man?

Now with wrestling as it is today, I'd say it's a males' soap opera. Dramatic twists and turns... routine interfereance and most importantly, long winded drawn out story lines that makes me change the channel to watch ESPN News for the 100,000,000th time.

Call me crazy, but isn't wrestling also getting predictable? Isn't it to the point where people who spend $60 for a pay-per-view could save that money just by actually watching the show before the pay-per-view? I can't tell you how many times it's come to be that the star being assaulted before the pay-per-view was always the winner... if that's the case, don't even watch the pay-per-view and line Vincent McMahon's pockets with more cash.

I've got a novel idea, instead of bringing back people like "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, "Rowdy"Roddy Piper and "Gold Dust"... bring back the originals of the WWE. Bring back the wrestling, forget the story lines.

Just a novel idea.

I could be wrong.
