I grew up watching this stuff cuz of the action until a point I realized that there was a story to it. I fell in love with how this was not just about guys pounding on each other. I liked the fact that they do what they do for a reason.
Their moves were always beautiful to watch. It was more like art than just fighting. Yeah it was way more than just a brawl it was Poetry in Motion. The way a heavyweight would power for elevation before a big finish. The way a high-flyer takes that leap of faith. The way that one person perseveres to win Gold.
The music that accompanies each entrant gives me the shivers. Makes me more excited than I could imagine. Each wrestler’s music seems to have this story attached to each. It plays with the imagination and just drives the mind crazy with pleasure.
Overall wrestling has been an inspiration, an exercise for the imagination, and something bigger that makes one feel special. So yes I know it is fake but I’m not so shallow to just watch for the pain. I watch for their performance. It takes so much to pull a knock-out move but it takes more skill to perform a move that both hurts and does not hurt.
The opening segment of WWE was always a montage of videos from all eras of WWE. It would start with the line “Ladies and Gentlemen…” and barrage the viewer with all the images. Of all one stood out the most, and it was that of Triple H holding up the WWE world title and the WCW world title.
The MVP and Matt Hardy rivalry
This was a favorite because the rivalry really brought out the best in these two. MVP started to look more credible and his athlete gimmick started to show. Matt Hardy was brought out of the dumps of being a simply mid-card player. It gave new life to their careers and really made the United States and WWE Tag Team Titles look good. Really exciting and fun rivalry. I was rooting for MVP all that time! XD
Ever since this guy debuted on ECW I knew he’d be one of my favorites. Didn’t get to see him much back then and then WWE went off the air in my country. When it came back, Bourne was on RAW but injured. When he came back I was happy beyond meaning but why is he a jobber? ._.
MORE EVAN BOURNE!! More AIR BOURNE!!
John Morrison and the Miz vs. Rated RKO
I just really like these teams, actually it wouldn’t matter if it were a Tag Team Match or a Fatal Four way… I wanna see these guys in the ring!!
Edge cashes in the Money in the Bank at New Year’s Revolution
Being the first Mr. Money in the Bank no one expected how things would go down if ever the MitB was cashed in. At New Year’s Revolution, Edge showed all of us just how underhanded that contract can be. Regardless it is legal and it provides for some shocking title changes just like Edge’s first WWE Championship!
Ever since he started in the WWE I always believed that he’d go places and now he has! At first he was just like any old jobber, worse was that as a reality TV star is was difficult to take him seriously. Plainly he was goofy but he outgrew that. He became one half of the greatest Tag Teams ever IMO. He became a double champion on multiple occasions and most importantly he’s become a successful WWE Champion.
The Rise of John Cena and Batista (2005)
Mostly because at this time I really really getting into WWE. I was a fan before sure but not so involved. This time around I really cared big time! 2005 was full of great moments and great changes that has shaped the WWE into what it is today. This was the start of a new Era since the Attitude Era, the passing of old names and the rise of new ones.
I find this one very cool. It’s like a giant “playground”, there are 6 wrestlers in the mix and a surprise Title change can occur. Anything can happen inside this thing!
Randy Orton’s RKO (Jumping Cutter)
The simplicity of this move is what appeals to me. It is quick, devastating and very unpredictable. So much so that it can happen as a counter to any other move out there.
I couldn’t resist…
Evan Bourne’s Air Bourne (Shooting Star Press)
Despite the difficulty of setting up this move, its just so amazing to see every time.
