I am one of those older fans. I have this problem with some of my whiny friends that are the same age as me. It's a simple explanation. THEY DON'T LIKE CHANGE, refuse to give new things a chance and nothing is as good as it once was. They quite frankly frustrate the living shit out of me TBH.
I get texts throughout ppvs of their constant bitching and I eventually just tells them to STFU and watch and if wrestling now makes them this miserable then STOP FUCKING WATCHING IT AND LEAVE THE REST OF US ALONE TO ENJOY IT.
It's funny because the same people I know that hate the talent now and want the AE back were same people who were bitching when the ae was first starting out that they wanted Hogan and the Warrior back. That Austin, Rock, HHH, Taker, Foley all sucked compared Brutus The Barber Beefcake. Now these same people are crying to me about the shield, punk, ryback, dolph and wanting HHH or the Taker back.
It's so funny because during the TLC ppv these retards were bitching to me the entire shield match about how much it sucked and they should have just used the Undertaker. REALLY?
It's okay, because much like I do today, when these new guys start becoming popular and they start to dig them, I'll remind them how much of banwagon idiots they are when I catch them wearing a Ambrose shirt, much like I do now when they are wearing a Rock shirt when they said he would never amount to anything, because he was no Lex Luger.
