WWE is a title that brings a glint in a person’s eye of youngsters out there. It’s a title that individuals have grown up with. From skipping studies, to skipping meals, all for those 90 minutes of pure adrenalin; the lights, the action, the drama was something to die for! And if that’s not enough, wrestling card games, trading cards, and walls adorned with posters of Hulk Hogan and The Rock and what not! Those were the great old days.
WWE brought a revolution to the world of sports entertainment. Yes, it is sport, however it is actually entertainment, and a part of the entertainment industry, and entertainment at its best for that matter. The People’s Champ, the Texas Rattlesnake, The Heart Break Kid, Triple H; these folks were, and still are role models for lots of young teens out there.
Why you ask? Because, it had been different. It’d the magic required to help keep people glued to their seats/TV sets. It was better than any Hollywood flick. 世博 The oh-so-arrogant Mr. McMahon and his mini-wars with the stars, especially Stone Cold Steve Austin; the life-in-a-pot-undead Undertaker; the People’s Champ, The Rock who Layeth the SmackDown with the People’s Elbow; who are able to forget those golden moments. After all, they’re etched into our brains, and I speak for lots of people when I say that. The craze was so extreme that I actually fractured my leg once trying to complete a Jeff Hardy + a Brahma Bull “Swanton Elbow” ;.This just goes to exhibit simply how much we were in deep love with those people with the cool hair, the big muscles, and of course the underwear. The thing that individuals never followed was the “Please don’t try this at home”!
Then came the name change, and I know feel so it wasn’t only the name that had changed. Maybe I was growing from the jawhorse, but that’s just not right because I’m still a WWE fan. In came a fresh breed of muscle-men, hungry for every single other’s blood. Brock Lesnar.. Man he was one strong guy. He bloody broke the ring, and the tool used was a Big Show! A 500 pound superplex! I possibly could hear myself thinking “What the hell just happened?!” followed closely by “What else did you anticipate?” John Cena, a slim little thing who liked slapping people and showing some “ruthless aggression” is currently close to legend, followed closely by the likes of Batista the Animal, Mr. 619 Rey Mysterio and the Punjabi Giant, The Great Khali. Although extremely talented and bloody well powerful, these new champions somehow didn’t have what the older Heroes did. They had just disappeared. And to this day, I’m always hoping for some turn of events and The Rock, or Stone Cold walking down towards the ring. But such is life.
