wrestling matches and even some of their story angles while the Ruthless Aggression was underrated because it's simply the era after the AE? I honestly felt like I'm the only one that feels this way. Don't get me wrong, I still think the Attitude Era is a great generation due to all of the dynamic wrestling legends they produced(The Rock, Stone Cold, etc.) but most of their wrestling matches at the time were mainly just a bunch of brawlfests that only lasted between 2-4 minutes, along with the fact that they had a lot of story angles that were either a little too over-the-top or have constant face/heel turns of several wrestlers in such short instant timing that just kills the flow. Just look at the critical reviews that Wrestlemania XV and Wrestlemania 2000 had. WMXV really only had one great wrestling match, which was The Rock vs Stone Cold while the rest sucked. WM2000's main event was a really huge disappointment and felt more like a regular Raw/Smackdown episode than a truly built-up WM event. They were both negatively recieved overall by wrestling critics. And also, take a look at the Ministry of Darkness Angle. That had potential to be a great angle until Vince made a dumb choice and decided to be the mysterious power of the Ministry himself as part of the near end of the story. Even The Undertaker himself has admitted that he didn't like this story angle or at least how it ended. As for the Ruthless Era, the era was far from perfect but it at least had a good balance of good, edgy storytelling and quality wrestling matches, at least with Smackdown during the brand splits. The only bad things I'd have to say about the RA era was Triple H's reign of terror(burying many talents who deserved the spotlight at the time), which harmed Raw as a show and the misuse of many WCW and ECW talents they instantly kept after the Invasion Angle. This is also the era where both The Rock and Stone Cold leaves. Austin may have walked out in mid 2002(while still on WWE contract) and pulled a bit of a dick move on the fans but I kind of understand why he did so(being forced to lose to Brock Lesnar without a good build-up for him yet and on a regular Raw show). But overall, I honestly thought the Ruthless Aggression was another great era but an unfortunately underrated one mainly due to being overshadowed by the Attitude Era.
