WWE Has had any Wave to be able to Sports Entertainment
WWE is a name that brings a glint in the eye of youngsters out there. It is a name that we 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 nice old days.
WWE brought a revolution to the entire world of sports entertainment. Yes, it’s sport, but 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 individuals were, and still are role models for lots of young teens out there.
Why you ask? Because, it was different. It’d the magic required to help keep people glued for their seats/TV sets. It absolutely 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 will forget those golden moments. I am talking about, they’re etched into our brains, and I speak for lots of people when I say that. The craze was so extreme that I really fractured my leg once trying to accomplish a Jeff Hardy + a Brahma Bull “Swanton Elbow” ;.This just goes showing how much we were in love with those individuals with the cool hair, the big muscles, and needless to say the underwear. The only thing that we never followed was the “Please don’t try this at home”!
Then came the name change, and I personally feel that it wasn’t only the name that had changed. Maybe I was growing out of it, but that’s just not right because I’m still a WWE fan. In came a brand new breed of muscle-men, hungry for every 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 by “What else did you expect?” John Cena, a thin little thing who liked slapping people and showing some “ruthless aggression” is currently close to legend, associated with famous brands 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’d just disappeared. And to this day, I’m always longing for some turn of events and The Rock, or Stone Cold walking down towards the ring. But such is life.
