See, I actually agree with them on that one. I'm sitting here as I type this re watching an old wrestling event (SummerSlam 1992, just in case anybody was wondering), whereas I can probably count the number of UFC fights that I've re watched in my life on my fingers (and I'm somebody that hasn't missed a televised UFC fight since 2005, and in that nine years, I've purchased maybe two dozen WWE PPVs).
I also agree with pro wrestling having a greater ability to guarantee a quality show, but that said, a great show is far from a guarantee in pro wrestling. There is no shortage of **** shows one can point to in WWE history.
Maybe thats because you grew up on wrestling and have a more nastalgic appreciation for it? I grew up in the 80's, love me some old Duran Duran & Poison...but damn, those acts are long gone and irrelavant for todays crowd.
WWE is just script, so its alot like watch sitcom reruns; you enjoy the moment, not the narrative.
As far as a better show - I almost agreed- until I reminded myself that, again, its about script vs real - and while there have been and will continue to be plenty of snoozers in UFC, there are still plenty of good fights to balance it out. And, if I may be so bold, what makes most fights "good" is less to do with the fights themselves and more to do with the undertsanding the fans have and their ability to appreciate whats happening. Thats why WWE is easy for simple-minded folks - its low hanging fruit.
