It bears repeating that wrestling fans are as fickle as they come.

That isn't necessarily a bad thing. It has led to some of the all time great characters. Rocky Maivia may never have become fondly remembered as The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment had he not been greeted by such resounding rejection upon his arrival in the company. The New Day faced so much fan ire upon their debut as a team that they were essentially turned heel by default, and now they are one of the most well-loved acts of the past decade.

In the age of the internet, the phrase "don't judge a book by its cover" never seems to have rung more true, with every man, woman and news publication desperate to get their hot-take out into the open as fast as possible. Unfortunately, it is much easier to suddenly hate on something, rather than to suddenly love it, resulting in overwhelmingly negative reactions appearing out of thin air. In the cut-throat environment that is modern wrestling, it is easy for many of these ideas and characters to be removed before fans can truly understand what they brought to the product.

Sadly, this can result in some great ideas being gone from our screens far too soon. Here is just a handful.
