  1. There's actually some wisdom to the lad's words: nowadays we've got to deal with all these idiotic personas and back stories instead of just the wrasslin'.

  2. you know

    this is talking sense.

    It used to be quite simple, then one day they got writers i guess instead of just letting them make it up as they go

  3. If by "one day" you mean "way back in the 80's" then you're right. There have been writers in pro-wrestling since before the first Wrestlemania. The wrestlers still make up the exact words they go out and say, but there are, and have always been, people behind the scenes making up how the storylines are going to go.

  4. It's true, after that girl had seven abortions I lost track.

  5. Probably also had trouble following the plots of TWO AND A HALF MEN episodes.

  6. Slade: Pro wrestling has more plot, and better acting, than Two and a Half Men ever did.

  7. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Wrestling is Soap Operas for Dudes. It has all the same plots and ridiculous family drama, but it also has punching and suplexes so that they don't realize what they're getting into.

  8. Sorcerer - You're preaching to the choir, buddy.

  9. The old formula of "Two guys don't like each other, and we watch them fight" seems to have gone out the window. I stick to indy feds and old ECW tapes to fill the void these days...

  10. I'll never forget the day in fifth grade that I realized I was too old to still be watching wrestling.

  11. There is, however, an equal amount of drugs in the wrestling industry and Charlie Sheen.

  12. Looks like he was either watching TNA or late 1999-2001 WCW

  13. Heel to Hero conversion are sometimes hard to follow. Especially with oscillating careers.

  14. This is actually quite true. The stories are poorly written but poorly written in such a way as to be incomprehensible without knowing all the canon and backstory and history involved. It's a pain to follow it.

    But mostly I quit watching because I was sick of the ugliness that goes on behind the scenes; drug scandals, deaths, jockeying for position in the company by holding down talented people, etc. It's a sausage factory, you don't wanna see what goes on back there.

  15. This actually makes more sense than most of what we see on here.

  16. ...And yet he reads comic books? The average wrestling storyline has nothing on the complexity of DC and Marvel's regular epic crossover plots.
