What I hate about Wrestling

Allow me to begin by saying i may be slightly biased and i am the first to admit it, i have always been a fan of the Hardy Boyz and the rest of the carolina group (i do agree that as of late Shane Helms has been way outta line). however, i go around, and i see this hatred towards certain parts of the product, and certain wrestlers, and it leaves me asking why.
TNA- ok, yes, some of the hate going at it is backed up and with good reason, but it seems alot of people are just glad to jump on to the "WE HATE TNA" band wagon. TNA has grown a bit stailer (is that how you spell it? :P its early, i'm tired) sinse a few years back, but they still offer an alternative from WWE. I go everywhere and i find people complaining about wanting the attitude era back, and bring back the blood, and etc. for WWE, but when TNA takes on the characteristics of then, all the sudden to everyone they're just reviving a dead era. an example of this very thing would be another post a few days ago here, name names i shall not, however it was obvious it was just alot of people complaining.
at least, with TNA, you can expect a match to continue if someone gets a little bloody, i like WWE, but i like being able to watch TNA as well.
Matt- now, as i said, i'm very biased i believe, but some things just do not make sense to me. first off is the issue of Matt's weight, or rather, how big a deal everyone makes of it. yes, matt's a little chunky, but he is not fat, not by any means. i'm a big guy, but i'm not obese, and i'm bigger then him stomach wise. and so what, the guy has a similar hairstyle to Awesome Kong... who honestly feels that this is some "big cause" to try and make the guy look like a fool, yes, his actions to get out of WWE were rather childish, but he spent years in the midcard area, i imagine that can frustrate someone, Matt knows what he's doing in the ring irregardless of what people want to say.
Jeff- yes, the dude did drugs, we all know he did drugs, he knows, i know, you know, by now the people with no tv in the middle east must know, can we move past it already? i got knews for people, it isn't easy to resist the urge of drugs, when you know how good they can feel. the guy was out of WWE, he was a little banged up (he had a hurniated disc in his back i believe) and etc. this happens to many people. but people are trying to use him as a scapegoat so they do not need to recognize that there favourite, is probably on the exact same stuff. Jeff definately needs to get his act together now that he has a daughter, but when i read comments like "hope he enjoys gettin raped in jail" and "i wish he would die"... what the blue hell did he do to you personally to instigate attacks like that. if you don't like Jeff due to his wrestling or due to the wrestling persona he is currently playing, thats fine, thats his wrestling gimmick, thats what your supposed to like or dislike. but his personal life shouldn't be used against him. i understand, he's supposed to be a "romodel for the kids" well, i'm sorry, but if i ever see Jeff turn into freaking John Cena, i'm not going to be a fan anymore, and thats saying something.
WWE- mind you, i often am on this side of the hatred, to my own regret. WWE PG era, its a pain in the neck, but i can understand why they're doing it. they need new fans for when the old attitude era fans finally give up screaming for stone cold to come out and give a can of whoop ass to whatever care-bear loving babyface is in and out this week, because as bad as some of it is, not all of it is. Miz is a great champ and a believable heel, and he's funny enough for a face turn should the situation marret it. i agree, keep Cena off of the championship for a good long while, he was much more enjoyable around the time he first debuted. however, WWE is full of some people who do care. yes, vince needs to stop acting like its all for him and only he is watching because to be honest, more then one type of person is watching, but WWE does try to a degree and as said, if you don't like it, TNA IS an alternative.
finally, i'd like to point out that in a lot of places, people like to turn on wrestlers they like once said wrestler actually is in a position of power. you like the guy? they give him the title and you hate the guy. i have trouble understanding it, but you know, whatever.
