View Full Version : How would you explain WWE?

As the title says how would you explain WWE to someone who has never seen or heard of it (Yes chances are this is not likely)? How would you describe the storylines, the wrestlers, the overall general feel that comes with RAW and Smackdown.

I look forward to reading the comments. Lets try to be civil about this.

A soap opera on wheels for men?

A soap opera for men is about the best way to describe wrestling in general.

Like the 2011 Red Sox with Francona in charge... Awesome roster but the management just wasn't what it used to be

It's like watching a soap opera for men on fast-forward. The same character is the star of every episode even though he is not very good at acting. All of the good actors never get a chance for the lead role.

WWE - The major leagues... Where it only takes politics to win a World title...
Some interesting storylines for the entire family...

an action adventure soap that has some laughs for the kids, that used to pretend it was a wrestling show

Where you see the same 4 guys as world champions

It used to be good, it had great stories, great wrestling, and great characters. Now some good characters, the stories stuck, sometimes good matches.

It's a scripted wrestling show that seems to adapt with times and will probably always be around. It passed through the tumultuous 90s by emulating the tension and anarchy with rebelling youth and now spends its time in the 2000s and 2010s tip-toeing around the era of PG, something everyone can relate to irl right now. The characters are presented as "real" athletes with some enforcing stereotypes. There aren't many larger than life characters or stupid gimmicks - but that doesn't mean there aren't stupid "tweaks" to people's personas. Matches are generally the same; especially the main event which consists of Cena, Orton and "insert random guy here" (random guy being whoever creative are high on at that moment; we've had miz, Punk now Alberto del rio). Makes a change from 2003 which seemed to consist of Triple H and whoever he was beating at that particular PPV. Oh, and the guy that does five moves and wins? His name is John Cena. He's like Hulk Hogan. If hulk had a decent haircut and actually got booed.

If this was attitude era then I would just say its pretty badass and good tv. But today I am even embarrassed to admit I watch this crap, so I would pretend that I haven't watched wwe in years. None of my friends or infact anyone I know watches WWE anymore and haven't since 2001.

Yeah that really explains why ratings went from 6 to 3

It's very bright and colorful. If that doesn't keep your attention; They will remind you before every break what the main event of the night will be incase you get lost or forgot.

I tried explaining it like a soap opera for men to my mother one night. She was getting into it. She liked Morrisson and Orton. Then Cody Rhodes came out to cut a promo and well............... that gimmick is a little............yeah. Needless to say she immediately went back to thinking it was stupid.

It's the best soap opera on TV for men.

No much better. At least the hot women in TNA actually can actually have a match that last more than 2 minutes and is entertaining
