My New years Resolution for this year, I am officially done with professional wrestling, WWE to be specific.
I have been a fan of wrestling for at least 24 years (I was 6). I have seen companies come and go. I have seen companies change. I have seen terrible moments, moments that have had a huge effect on my life. Hulk Hogan coming out with the NWO for the first time brought my young self to tears and killed part of my childhood innocence... ranked right up there with finding out wrestling was fake, which made the realisation that Hogan himself decided to take a dump on all his fans by doing that was on purpose. Too this day I joke about that being the reason I stopped being an active kid and gained alot of weight, all because my moral compass at the time abandoned me. I stopped watching for a while after that... but like alot of kids at the time, I went back to it and also started watching not just WCW, but also WWF (as it was then). I found anti heros there, more stories, life was good.
Because of wrestling I joined my Junior high wrestling team, then High school. I got a bad concussion from that, still suffer from vision problems from it to this day, but I was still a wrestling fan. I gained major empathy for those guys. I mean what happened to me was an accident (mostly) and these guys were putting themselves in that kind of danger on purpose, just to entertain and support their families.
Well recently, the stories have been getting stale, frustrating, just freaking lame. I was already barely watching, just letting it be on for background noise. But then there was a glimmer of hope, it was getting interesting again... until what happened tonight.
For those who are not watching, I will simplify it. John Cena (a good guy) cause the Authority (the bosses, bad guys) to lose power and was the only one who could reinstate their power. Seth Rollins (bad guy and total dbag) and was a lacky of the Authority, had a retired superstar who was guest hosting, Edge. (kind of good guy) held down and was threatening to break his already injured neck, to paralyze or even kill him unless he made John Cena bring the Authority back. He went on and on about how he was going to do it, about his family losing a father. It was not entertaining, it was way too dark, and there have been tons of dark moments before this. And, it also has brought the boring back!
So to hell with it. I am done devoting time to watching that kind of boring, too dark, crap anymore. They went too far, and I am no longer a fan because of it. Big deal to them, I am just one fan. But I ask you to share this with others, get their opinions. I am not out to cause any change, but I do want to spread awareness that World Wrestling Entertainment is not entertaining anymore.
