WWE Today, The Past and The Future

Rex FultsCorrespondent IAugust 10, 2008

WWE has changed a lot in the past decade and I would like to show how this great company has changed for better or worse, you decided.  It starts with the lose of some of the greatest entertainers of our time; The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Kurt Angle "now in TNA".  These wrestlers help put the this company on the map during the war with WCW.  The Rock especially, I say this because not only was he amazing in the ring but there is also his microphone skills.  There is no one in the business who can do what he did on the mic.  Stone Cold could be a heel or a face and still sell out arenas coast to coast because he could stomp a mud hole in any competitor and make the match look good.  His rivalry with The Rock, Triple H, Kurt Angle, and Vince McMahon are priceless.  Kurt Angle was in some of the most amazing matches and would constantly push his body past it boundaries. Armageddon Hell in a Cell match was the only Hell in a cell with 6 wrestlers in it and he still one.  2001 King of the Ring, Kurt Angle wrestled in three matches two in the kind of the ring tournament and the last match against Shane in a street fight.  Those where the days...

WWE today, you have wrestlers like Randy Orton, Youngest World Champion in History.  John Cena one of the biggest stars of today with kids and women, "my opinion".  The company has split into three different but equal shows; Raw, ECW, and Smackdown.  Each with there own main eventers, I think this was a good move because it helps give the mid card guys a push to the top, a great example of that is the current WWE champion CM Punk.  The ratings have also changed so that WWE can get younger views to start watching wrestling, "rating is now PG".  And lets not forget with a new ERA of wrestling comes new matches, The Elimination Chamber!! This is one of the most brutal matches I have ever seen and think that this was a great invention along with the Money in the Bank Ladder match.

The past was great and the future looks promising, but only time will tell to see if WWE stays on top or fades away like WCW...
