As I watch old school WWE videos on YouTube, I realized just how much I miss the beautiful past. The time where the WWF pushed the envelope as far as what they could get away with on TV.
With the PG rating taking affect lately, we've had to sit through all the changes. Gone were the blood scenes, extreme action, and the adult-suggested actions. Instead, we see matches stopped due to an open wound, five-second delays on live promos, and a tamer set of matches in the ring.
Let's get back to the mayhem most of us craved on Monday and Friday nights. Let's get back to pushing the envelope to the point where it was going to shred to pieces. Bring back the hardcore matches, weapons, the violence that made wrestling a household name for years. Bring back bra and panties, the women mixing it up in the ring with the men, the adult situations that we laughed at backstage.
It's what needed. Let's face, how much more of the boring monotony can we take? Each week, it's becoming predictable of what will happen on either RAW or SmackDown. The fans are wanting to see more happen, both live and on TV. CM Punk's promo was just the beginning, but it pretty much stopped there. There's no true excitement, no real drama. When you see ratings drop, you know something must be done.
I can only hope these changes come soon for the WWE. Otherwise, it'll be WCW all over again, this time without anyone to buy them out.
