Unfortunately this is a sad sad article for me to write. However I'm afraid my pessimism is validated. Wrestling has more than plateaued. If you were as lucky as I was, then you at least had the chance to be a part of wrestling's zenith in the late 90's early 2000's. That however, was a different time, with a different audience. People grow up, they move on. They adapt. Wrestling's adapted too, in the worst way possible. Especially for us 'marks' - wrestling's insiders. Why do those of us in our 20's and 30's still watch wrestling? It's a legitimate question with a legitimate answer. WE WANT TO BELIEVE. We want to believe that we can rekindle what once was. We want to get goosebumps and pop when OUR guy or girl hits center stage. We want to be surprised, we want 'holy s**t' moments. One thing that'll never change in wrestling is good vs evil. But is good vs evil enough anymore? Opinions vary. We all want wrestling to be great again but how does it get there? Who's going to take it there again, Triple H? Dixie Carter? (That's a joke) Here's 5 reasons why wrestling will never be the same again. True story.

Lover of sports, gaming, tattoos, writing, music, poker, tv, movies, food, sarcasm, laughing, debating and all things Louis C.K. and Larry David. Also if you have and or ever thought about wearing a visor and or fanny pack, I'm afraid we can't be friends.
