I love it whenever Eddie is talking or wrestling with someone taller than him because the height differences give me life. Eddie and Batista's feud was definitely underrated 💖 I'm so sad that they couldn't build on it more.
Wrestling has always been my first love and something that keeps me rooted down when I get depressed or anxious. But lately, that hasn't been doing anything for me. At least today's WWE. Watching old matches still makes me happy, that hasn't changed thankfully.
But as far as today is concerned, the last time I was watching weekly was probably...January or February 2016, then I got busy with college and had to stop. For some reason, I never had the interest to pick back up again. Hell, the only PPV's I even tuned in on was BackLash 2016 and WrestleMania 33. None of the current storylines and current feuds catch my interest. It doesn't help that I don't have any strong favorites today (as opposed to when I was a kid growing up). I mean, yeah I love Seth and Dean and a few others, but it's more of me being a casual fan than being invested. Not to discount all of the wrestlers' hard work and talent, but they just don't do anything for me. Social media doesn't help. It's done more good than bad, don't get me wrong, but it's harder for me to be into a feud when one or both of the parties are posting pictures of them being best friends on Instagram or Twitter. The "kayfabe" isn't there like it used to be. I knew, for example, that Eddie and Benoit were friends in real life as a kid, but only because my older cousin told me. I wouldn't have known from the way they acted in the ring because the internet didn't have pictures of them hanging out outside of wrestling at that time. I've learned to sort of have fun with today's WWE by not taking anything seriously and just acting like everything is just a hilarious sitcom, but I'll always prefer Ruthless Aggression. I ain't saying one is better than the other, it's just I enjoyed 2000-2005 more than 2016 and this year so far. If you still love WWE now just as you did when you were younger, that's great! I hope you don't lose that spark because I know I did and it's a painful feeling
