Is it the Attitude Era?

I have been a long time WWF/E fan since the first time I've watched Stone Cold Steven Austin open a can of whip ass on Triple H, which would start my long and everlasting hate for his character.
Now that the Attitude Era is over I feel like WWE have drop the ball, but not because the Super Star must watch what they say or blood is not allowed to be shown in the match. Hell, chair shot to the head doesn't make the show, so I am not complaining nor am I mad about that.
What I am made about in the entertainment value of the actually matches. Since the PG Era there have rarely been a match when I was like "Damn, did you just see that shit!" The phrase can change depending on the person but the fact stay the same.
I can remember one of my favorite matches of all time. Stone Cold vs The Rock when Austin joined VKM. As my eyes look onto that match I was like wow! This is great, the wrestling was also and you would have got you money worth. About three or four years down the road when it came on DVD, me and my friends watch it in the living room and I was still in excitement about it.
Undertake vs. The Rock vs Kurt Angel-Great
Rob Van Dam vs Chris Jericho-Great
Jericho vs Chris B. vs Stone Cold-Great
Just to name a few. I haven't seen nothing like that from WWE other the Taker vs Shawn, which was the only reason I have oder a PPV for WWE since Noway Out came to Baltimore and Kane was till wearing his mask. Yes that damn long....that damn long.
That's was what I miss about WWE, good matches that have its follows looking in awe. The last match I saw that took me back into that time was the Kurt Angel vs Jeff Hardy. Which I have to say was the best match I've seen in TNA and WWE for awhile.
So it's not the fact that the Attitude Era is no more, its the fact that the matches are not as good as they was. I can deal with all this PG crap if I could see a Championships match that didn't look like The Bella Twins vs Hornswoggle.
