I was watching the Stone Cold Steve Austin DVD set last night and flipped to WWE's RAW (or whatever it's called now) and the dichotomy was amazing. I have no idea if anyone else even cares about pro wrestling, but I used to love it when I was in high school and college (during the "Monday Night Wars" through 2002). It's amazing to me how far the WWE has fallen since the days of The Rock and Stone Cold. I remember tuning in each week to see what they'd do next, and usually laughing out loud at the humor. A few things stick out in my head: Mick Foley's This Is Your Life segment with The Rock Austin spraying beer on The Rock Kurt Angle spraying milk on Stone Cold Any Rock v. Austin feud bit/promo Austin beating Booker T in the grocery store Austin v. Mr. McMahon (any) Mr. Socko! The Rock N' Sock Connection Team ECK (Edge, Christian, Kurt Angle) The Five Second Pose by Edge & Christian (For the benefit of those with flash photography) I'm no longer the WWE's target audience, but I do tune in briefly every so often to see what they're doing (and because I still like HBK). Aside from the great tribute to Ric Flair, I haven't seen anything on WWE programming in the last few years that makes me believe they can ever duplicate the success they had ten years ago. It must've been the competition with WCW (and to a lesser extent ECW) that forced the WWE to come up with great programming. With no real competition (TNA doesn't count), clearly it's become a shadow of its former self.
