Wrestling in a Lull?

I recently went to a TNA event for the first time. I actually haven't watched wrestling since around 2004 all the way back through the WCW vs WWF era. I was hardcore fan at the time with dire interest in backstage happenings and really voiced my opinion on how the companies should move and thought original ECW was the best, etc. So when TNA Impact came into town, I decided to just go for the heck of it because it was televised... and, to me, it was all just boring. Wrestling's nothing like it used to be. The matches seemed less than average with just a few nice executed moves.. but nothing really flowed or seemed entertaining. The wrestlers looked cookie cutter, it seemed more 'backstage reality show' with a lot of them talking about the 'business' instead of it pulling you into the story or matches.
I can't say the same for WWE because, as I said, I don't watch it anymore.. but this is based just on a live show from TNA. I know there are big fans of wrestling on this site because this is the one I used to come to back in the day, so any feedback would be appreciated. Have my tastes in entertainment changed? Or is wrestling, or TNA at least, just not entertaining like it used to be during the latter 90s/early 2000s golden era?
