What I miss about Wrestling

Ray FernandezCorrespondent IJune 2, 2016

I miss the days when wrestling was less believable but more entertaining without having to shock us at every opportunity. When we had champions that held on to the title for a while allowing us to love them like we did Hogan, or hate them the way we did Ric Flair and the 4 horsemen. When we had feuds that last months, where we had to wait to see a resolution to the feud just like we did with Ricky The Dragon Steamboat and Randy Macho Man Savage at Wrestlemania 3. A great match didn't have to have a ton of chairs, tables, ladders, or blood, because the wrestlers worked the crowd over as much as they did each other. When teams stayed together and were not a way to fit four guys into a match to save time. When we had managers that were entertaining and made us hate the way they stopped our favorite wrestlers from a hard fought victory. I also miss when matches were waged to a finish and not some run in that feels like a rip off and disappointment. What I miss most was that unforced banter on Monday Nights between Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby The Brain Hennan on Mondays on Prime Time Wrestling.
