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.
Rock DID seem very wooden in the Scorpion King. None of the looseness, none of the charisma that he made his name on in the WWE. He's gotta break out of that, or shea's right, he'll go nowhere in Hollywood.
