...that I almost wish WWE would die off.

This company has provided some great matches, angles, and entertaining moments. That's what I want to remember it for. Not the SHIT that it's been putting on for almost two years straight.

I don't hate Triple H nearly as much as most people on the 'net(though I don't know if that's possible; HHH is basically the wrestling world's equivalent of the Antichrist in these circles), and I'm actually a Kane fan. So I actually feel bad for these guys for having to be involved in such a ridiculous storyline.

Call it a career, Vince. It's over. You had a hell of a run, but it's over. Let someone else, someone who has clue one about how to run a wrestling company, take over the top spot. WWE/F/whatever was once the top dog, but now it's just the most visible piece of crap in the pile that pro wrestling in 2002 has become.

I'm sorry, I am still seeing great matches every week on Smackdown. Maybe you should consider watching that instead.

I actually wondered today what would happen if the WWE died this week. Where would all the talent go and would we see them again soon? I never felt like this before, but I think that is a good thing...

I live in the St. Louis area, which means no UPN, which means no Smackdown. There's Velocity and that's all I see of the Smackdown side of things.

Of course, you're also saying this about a company that presented a rather nifty PPV the night before, featuring a top-notch tag-team MOTY candidate and a brutal main-event brawl where the Undertaker actually put a young'un over.

Which was preceded by a Smackdown that had some sports-entertainment comedy that WAS funny, the tag-tournament semifinal matches (one of which was rock-solid), and nothing to send the Internet Wrestling Community[tm] screaming into the night.

They have two primary shows right now, and ONE of them has had a lot going for it and almost nothing to complain about for months now. RAW is in the shitter, but that still leaves two hours per week of reasonable wrestling content, and I can name a lot of other periods in WWF/E history where they weren't providing THAT.

I'll be playing video games or watching the Eagles game next Monday night, largely thanks to the abortion of a show they trotted out last night, but I'm also tuning in on Thursday. Let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater.

EDIT: Okay, you posted that you don't get Smackdown before I finished my reply. In that case, if it's RAW or nothing, I will heartily recommend that you either pick up a PlayStation 2, or start getting into football and hockey seasons.

I actually enjoyed quite a bit of No Mercy, I even thought Torrie vs. Dawn was good for what it was(non-wrestling valet vs. non-wrestling valet), thought the SD Tag Title match ruled(because *I* enjoyed it, not because I was told what to think), and enjoyed Hell In A Cell and was glad they did the right finish.

That being said, WWE eerily reminds me of WCW nowadays in that when they actually get something right, they go and do something to negate what they'd just accomplished. If only they'd just let the HHH-Kane angle die...err, bad choice of words.
Thank God for Velocity and Gateway Championship Wrestling...

I don't want the WWE to die, or to massively lose ratings.

Think about it, if the ratings and money continue to spiral downward, who are the people that Vince will get rid of first? It won't be the guys on top, that's for sure. It's going to be guys that most of the IWC dig. Who will get cut first, HHH or Rey Mysterio? Even though Billy Kidman is a JTTS right now, I would rather watch him than most of the Smackdown roster. But I know that the Big Slow will be around a lot longer than Kidman if the ratings fall.

Vince will have no problem eliminating cruiserweight wrestlers from the roster. The guys that are loyal to him however will keep their jobs. These are lugs like the aforementioned Big Slow, Bossman, and Bob Holly (who should have been let go long ago...thank God BobHollyStillRules will be gone before he reads this :-).

I want new wrestlers to get opportunities to shine. I want the developmental wrestlers to be brought up and used. This won't happen if the WWE keeps on the ol' downward slope.

In conclusion, don't die WWE, because TNA can't fit everybody on their roster (they have to protect the Harris Brothers' spots after all).

I only thought about it for a second, and it wasn't a wish or anything like that. I'm seriously thinking about Kurt Angle right now, and to save myself from any more horrors, I will take to the spoilers. Heck, no WWE, no Kurt! We can't have that! But episode 500 is coming up, and this is how they do things?! I'm a little nervous if you ask me.

Well, he did go over, I don't know how much more you could ask for as far as tonight went. However, as far as his overall push (or lack thereof), Flair is pretty much the only old guy on the show that wasn't created by the WWF.
