    Did we just see Ryback give up there?

    The WWE has doomed his character so many times. Why not just have your monster heel give up after a couple kicks to the knee.

    Ryback's character sucks and his booking is even worse. The fact that he hasn't won a PPV match in almost a year is a joke, and the fact that he's in this meaningless feud with Jericho is a bigger joke. He's doesent get a reaction (unless it's the frequent "goldberg" chant).

    I don't know what to make of him. He's muscular, but not monsterlike.

    I don't like Vicky and Brad's chances.

    He was mine too. Anyone who really says he wasn't, I think they're lying unless they grew up on straight up NWA stuff.

    He was like a superhero to me. Always going after the bad guy and emerging victorious.

    And he made the matches look like he was going to lose. He got beat down a lot! A lot more than people think and then he got the upperhand. I was thoroughly engaged in his storytelling in the ring.

    Can I say that I disliked Hulk Hogan? And still do to this day? Granted, I started watching Wrestling when Hogan was a heel, but i've gone back, and seen a bunch of Hogan stuff, and has some of his DVD's and I just can't like the guy. Now, Ric Flair on the other hand, he's a wrestling God.

    You can, but watching Hogan at that time in those moments during that era was great. Flair was great too, but the was NWA/WCW. Heel Hogan was great for like a year, after that, I just couldn't anymore. His stuff during the 80s and early 90's pre-NWO was good, real good. Back then, it wasn't just about putting on a great match, it was also about telling a good story, getting in a great promo about your opponents and so on. It was so different back then. So different.

    When Hogan joined the Outsiders and formed the New World Order, the pro wrestling landscape changed. Monday Nitro viewers and ratings have skyrocketed.

    I bet. I grew up in the heart of the Monday Night Wars. So for me wrestling was shock, awe, over the top personalities, and cool bad guys.

    You don't see too much ringside interference anymore. Maybe they're trying to show the kids watching this that cheating is wrong?

    I saw all them eras and like some parts of each. With your era, we ended up with talking for 15 minutes before a show, shorter matches and so on, but it brought in money. Mine was un scripted promos, but some really awful gimmicks and characters.


    Boy, that girl's hair is so red!


    The fakeness meter has skyrocketed.
