You can tell from the video that the creators of the show share the same views that I had about wrestling. That its just a soap opera with muscles. However, this portrayal of wrestling doesnt help its public image with anyone who has not been exposed to the sport. But after seeing the clips from wrestling from the 1990s I have a new take on wrestling, at least from the 1990s.
Im not sure if I can put my finger on it but I just feel like the wrestlers back then were putting more into their characters and trying to make a name for themselves. Today everything seems stale. Maybe I just enjoyed the eccentricity of characters like the ultimate warrior who seemed to give his all in every one of his performances.
Of course, I am not the right person to be dissecting wrestling since I have barely watched any but this is just how I feel about the past and present state of wrestling.
