And this is 97% of the reason I stopped watching on a full time basis in 2005 when it first became the John Cena show. I started again for a while in 2006 when the DX reunion & ECW came around. After those fizzled out, I watched the Chris Benoit memorial show before anybody knew what happened surrounding that case. Then.....it became the PG circus. Since 2008, I've probably watched 10 full episodes and gone to 2 live events (Survivor Series 08 & Royal Rumble 11). Nothing about the business excites me anymore.
Meanwhile, I'm at home with every episode of Raw from 1998 to 2003, every episode of Smackdown from 1999 to 2003 & every PPV from 1998 to 2003 on my external drive. I still get goosebumps from some of those events after I haven't watched them for years.
