Man... I really wish a time machine could import the Ric Flair of '89 or '88 into today's WWE. Wooooooo!
It's probably more due to my age (mid-30s) than anything else, but I don't think I'll ever have an emotional connection to a wrestler the way I did with the Nature Boy.
And y'know, when you don't really feel passionate about the wrestlers, it's kinda tough to be a fan. For the past few years, I've actually enjoyed reading about wrestling -- on forums like this -- more than watching it.
Not if the crowd chants "Fuck You Vince" A lot can happen between now and next June. Both good and bad. If it's good, you can see some great wrestling. If it's bad, the crowd response will be worth the price of the PPV alone.
