This is going to be completely from my opinion however does anyone else share the sentiment that the attitude era wasn't the perfect entity many IWC members would have you believe? There were some major upsides such as one of the best rosters in history and the crowds being hot every night. Onto the problems The titles were passed around too much. Many people class this as a problem with the modern era however lets look at the wwf title history from January 1999-January 2000 Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Show Spoiler Hide Spoiler The rock, mankind,The rock,SCSA,Undertaker,Austin,Mankind, HHH, Vince McMahon,HHH,Big Show, HHH 12 titles changes over a year. How bad does that make the belt look? Everyone seems to have had a turn with it. I'm not saying the belt doesn't get passed around too much today but how can people complain about this but praise the AE? SCSA was a superman. I know every top face gets this treatment. People hate on Hogan for it. People hate on Cena for it. I've even seen Bruno get some hate for it. So why not Austin? People say this era is predictable but how many times was there a group in the ring were Austin cleared them all? Just one example or even this ? Imagine the hate Cena would get for doing this to anyone? The amount of ''Teh Cena buriess everyone'' would be huge but Austin does it and is praised for it? The over saturation of gimmick matches. Undertaker and SCSA had a hell in a cell match on Raw vs Kane and Mankind. Don't believe me? http://www.veoh.com/watch/v1027029Ba8aCnpY?h1=WWE+-+The+Undertaker+and+Stone+Cold+VS+Kane+and+Mankind+%28Hell+In+A+Cell%29. It wasn't even a one off they did it again Not to mention all the hardcore matches they had when that title was in effect. Every main event feud usually ended up involving the McMahons. Wrestlemania 2000 - The McMahon family. In fact the whole of the year 2000 was essentially the McMahon Helmsley era vs the Rock. Austin vs Vince in 1998. Had to involve the rest of the family with Linda giving her share of the company too Austin. The higher power in 1999 had to be Vince didn't it ? Even though they had kidnapped his Daughter. Just to get to Austin... Some storylines seemed to be done for shock value and didn't add anything to the product see Mae Young giving birth to a hand. Yeah Youtube that if you haven't seen it I'm not going to see that again. It took multiple finishers to put a match away. This is more of a personal gripe. I prefer it when one finisher ended the match rather then multiple. It's what we're used to as wrestling fans now but it takes away from the story for me. Compare this huge Mania match When Hogan kicked out of the gorilla slam it seemed special because very few people did it. Compare that to Rock kicking out the stunner at WM17 it was expected to happen so didn't feel as special to me as it had been done multiple times. It still was a big crowd reaction but there is none of that edge of your seat deal for me. So yeah I'm not saying the Attitude Era was bad by any means I grew up with it and loved it but to say it was a perfect era some people paint is far from the truth surely? Anyone agree disagree or just want to flame feel free.
