Did We As Fans Get Spoiled?

I look at many of our comments and blogs and how negative they are or how much we all feel like things need to be better or improve. We complain about current stars and reflect on old times and wish why things couldnt be the way they used to be. Are things that bad in wresting? Should some things be changed and improved? Or did we as fans simply get spoiled somewhere along the way?
Take The Rock for example...Ive heard and read it all; many are so happy to have him back but then there are those who are upset he left at all and just wish he would go back to Hollywood. The spoiled kids in us wish he never left and say he betrayed us in some way. However we know this is far from the truth. If Rock had stayed around what might have happened? We could be sitting here complaining in similar fashion the way we complained about Triple H or Undertaker. That he has been around for too long and should be helping putting over young talent. Even worse we could be complaining the way we complained about Hogan back in the 90's before he went all NWO. The truth is we just became spoiled kids...instead of appreciating that he is back for however long, we complain and throw tantrums.
The same could be said about the champions they pick now a days...The Miz, Shamus and Swagger who were all champions this past year and we just couldnt take it. We bitched and moaned and said what about someone else. How happy were those of you when Cena or Edge were champion? You wanted a change and got it but because you didnt like the change you cried anyways.
Lets face facts though...the attitude era spoiled us more than we realized. We had talented superstars that made us go this is the way wrestling should be. But when those stars started to leave for various reasons, for injury, retirement or movie stardom and the attitude era faded we were left with something less than what we were used to...PG. Now we have Cena and he is constantly forced down our throats with no one else to take his place. Orton and Punk are shadows of what the attitude era was and the midcard talent just seems to stutter step as they push and drop the stars like nothing.
Dont get me wrong though...things could improve all around as far as story lines and rivalries go in the WWE. The IC and US championships need to be seen as more important. The mid card matches should last longer than an average 3 minutes. And perhaps more consideration in who they push and make champion. We just need to see that they care more so that we care more. But overall, we just need to be less spoiled and more patient about things. Eventually even Cena will be gone and we will be looking at how different things have changed again. But will we be bitching about how Cena is better than whoever takes his place or will we be grateful that things did change? Do you think the wrestling fan has become a spoiled brat of himself or are we justified in the bitching that we partake in?
