    :p Yeah. Just saying, picking arguably the GOAT who really wrestled last in what, 2013?

    Anyone you are not sick to death of in the current generation?

    Speaking of which, are we still in the reality era? Are we past it?

    Nah, different guy. Although the previous guy, Shawn Daivari is the current one, Ariya Daivari's older brother.

    Two great ones for sure. Yeah it was very stale and I'm not the biggest fan of him as a babyface to begin with. Yeah there were times when the duo was one of the only worthwhile things on raw. Big kick seeing Goldberg back? Yeah I'm just a sucker for the big monster heels. He can be hilarious on the mic at times too with little one liners like Big Show I will kick you in groin, and is great at selling particularly Roman's spears. Wish he was in a better position but hopefully he can build his way back up on smackdown.

    I like KO alot. His sarcastic/realistic tone is different from alot of the still outdated characters that WWE come up with.

    There is actually a shitload of talent on the roster right now. I dunno if anyone knows that or cares, but on paper, there is probably more talent on the roster at this point than in history. But its over-saturated with talent, and there can only be so many champs and so many big storylines. So who we think can and know be stars, are given month long storylines at best near the top and then it gets hot potatoed to the next guy.

    {edit} BUT, injuries have screwed it all up, clearly. Guys like Balor, DB, KENTA, Rollins, etc. would have more prominent roles if they weren't breaking all the time. That's why I respect guys like AJ who has continued to do the same thing for over 15 years, and only barely killed one or two people...;)

    After Rock I'd have to say Brock. But gun to head on current gen I have no idea. Gun to head - Rusev or Joe.

    I like Rusev and was hoping they'd move him from the angry Sheik/heel Slaughter/knockoff Russian character to a more comical but realistic and grounded character, someone who jokes and has humor but can kill you in the ring. He's perfect for it i think.

    Funny how UFC is so much like pro wrestling with the self promotion on the mic. Gotta beg in public for more now.

    He won me over. I wasn't crazy about the whole foreign heel gimmick thing when he debuted but I came around to liking the gimmick. Lana helped with that too.:D

    In his defence, both Roderick Strong and the other dude whose neck he broke (who I can't remember right now) tucked their chin taking the Styles Clash.

    Strong has for sure taken it before, him and Styles were both in ROH and TNA at the same time as one another, so it isn't like he has never taken that bump before.

    Hell, even if he hadn't, AJ had been doing that move for what, 10+ years at that point? Guys should know how to take it.

    Not victim blaming here, I just remember when those stories broke thinking "You tucked your fucking chin!? Have you not seen that move!?"

    Although, out loud that sounds super harsh, my bad.

    I know Vince has a ton to do with the culture back there but I don't see how things don't get at least marginally better when the only person who keeps having these stories come up is gone.
