Post the thing that kept you watching WWE

  1. Simple as that..

    For me:

    That was the absolute shit for me back then.. I thought: ''Man, this is so hardcore, these guys fighting each other with chairs, bloodied men, hot girls, etc.. This is totally legit..''


    Just so extreme it got me hooked.

    Post yours..
  2. Kept us watching or made us start watching?
  3. The fact that it is a combination of acting and sports. I am interested in both parts and wrestling combines the two.
  4. Mix of the two. I was hooked when I only saw that into vid I posted.
  5. Oh. First saw it when it came to TV here in '07 I think, got hooked by playing SvR 2008.
  6. Combination of many things... friends who are like "Hey, we hardly have any interests other than finding ways to skip school, so yeah, lets start watching wrestling, since following sports is cool!"

    Then this happened.

    Then Smackdown vs Raw 2007 happened.

    Although, mister Jose, now that the chairs, blood, and (most of) the sex appeal are gone, what keeps you watching?
  7. -Summer of Punk (stale now)
    -Daniel Bryan
    -Brock Lesnar (went to shit)
    -The Shield
    -The Rock

    That's about it. And even then I have a hard time dedicating two/three hours into the product, even while having no life. Goes to show how shit E has gone.
  8. Watching Superstars on Saturday mornings with my dad, back in the late 80s, when I thought it was real.
  9. Bryan and Kidd keep me interested in wwe and Friends when i was back at school talking about the Rumble 2000 got me into wrestling.
  10. Pretty much this, add Cesaro and this is the saving grace of the 'E for me.

    Still find it hard to watch by myself because of the mostly awful filler, but I've gotta admit watching it here with you guys makes up for that.
  11. If we're talking about back in the day, well there's just too much to list.
  12. After watching since I was 6 I nearly dropped out of wrestling around 2008, but then this girl wanted me to watch wrestling with her and then I got back into it. She made me watch Smackdown, then got me back on Raw, now ironically she stopped watching and I'm now one of the internet folk.
  13. Watched all 3 big companies (ECW, WCW, WWE) from 1999 to 2001 (even though I understood just a little bit about wrestling, as I was a casual kiddo), and then I stopped since WCW and ECW went out of buildness(!) in early mid 2001.

    4 years I barely watched wrestling. So then I stumbled on TNA and ROH in 2005, and then decided to get back to watch WWE ocassionally until 2009, where I stopped watching 'E b/c it was a complete and utter trainwreck. So, then I started watching even more of TNA, ROH, PWG and some Japan.
  14. Freaking Taker man still on 06 and 07 he was badass
    SvR 2007 got me hooked,
    Mickie James, Trish Stratus and Lita for being hot and ACTUAL Female Wrestlers,
    Edge, Booker T, Kennedy, Cena, HBK, Michaels and the list goes on, and on, and on...
    And Finally RAW was better and Smackdown kicked ass
  15. The only thing that keeps me even half tuned in during the terrible stretches WWE will go through is Ziggler
