It's amazing to think how different wrestling would be today with no spoilers or other sources to dig for dirt. Do you think it would be better without it or does it matter?

I don't think it matters. Im fairly certain the "average fans" outnumber the "internet fans"

Well as I stated elsewhere, without the internet I'd still be slightly behind and I'd have much less people to discuss it with. So I guess it's encouraged it to be a bit more global

It has both bad and good. If no internet existed, no idea of wrestling outside TV would be known. So stuff like ROH and indy promotions would be in trouble compared to today. On the other hand, no flame wars with other wrestling fans.

What I was getting at was surprises and swerves are harder to pull off now. Like when I found out Vince was the boss was when Owen Hart kicked HBK in the head and he wouldnt get up and Hart went to Vince who was at the announcers booth for advice.

The internet has killed all the suprises. There are no more shocks. Everyone knows who has been signed and will be debuting. I suppose it was more prominant in the Monday Night Wars as no one really knew what the heck was going on and it was exciting.

Only the people who read the spoilers have the surprises killed.

And that's their own personal fault.

I don't read them and yet I'm never surprised. Only when guys like Edge comeback from injury early.

I was kinda surprised by Flair and Jeff Hardy turning up on Impact back in January but I'm rarely surprised these days. Less so by WWE
