Professional wrestling, anyone?

I know we talked about it a bit during the Chris Benoit controversy, but we didn't really get too deeply into the sport.

I honestly wasn't too crazy about it until around August when my brothers started watching it all the time, then I remember playing some awesome WCW games on N64, and I actually am starting to count myself a fan.
King Booker's TNA tour is hitting my town and I might be going (he's fighting Kurt Angle).

Is anybody else into pro wrestling? If I had to choose, I'd probably say The Undertaker is my favorite contemporary wrestler.

Cool

I am a huge fan. My favourites of all time include Austin, The Rock, Benoit, and Angle. My current favourites are Cena, Orton (mainly for his pose which he never does anymore), and Edge.

Wrestling is right now in a rut though, storylines have sucked, and Cena's too long reign was cut short by an unfortunate injury. And then there's the smarks who love to boo Cena because they think he has no workrate when nothing could be further from the truth. Look at his work and consistency in 2007.

Cena vs Umaga 'Last Man Standing' at the Royal Rumble - ****1/4
Cena/HBK vs Batista/Taker at No Way Out- ***3/4
Cena vs HBK at Wrestlemania - ****1/2
Cena vs HBK on RAW - ****1/2
Cena vs HBK vs Edge vs Orton at Backlash - ****3/4
Cena vs Foley vs Lashley vs Booker vs Orton at Vengeance - ***
Cena vs Lashley at Great American Bash - ***1/2
Cena vs Orton at Summerslam - ****

That's quite the record. The only PPVs this year that he didn't perform well at were Judgment Day and ONS against the Great Khali, and let's face it, no one alive could carry Khali to a decent bout. Unforgiven as well, but the horrible finish and time constrictions put a hamper on this match when it could have been as good as the Summerslam encounter.

Don't give me the "it's all fake" bullshit. I know it's scripted and a lot of the blows aren't real, but I watch it for entertainment purposes, not because I'm astounded at their wrestling technique.
