I don’t think this is the direction I was intending with the post. I am content with what I am seeing at the moment. There is good and bad with both shows, but it seems what I am lacking from one company, I am getting from the other (WWE with production and a few promos; TNA with the wrestling and “surprise” moments in the form of match outcomes). My problem is more along the lines of not having those who share in on the excitement or enjoyment as most seem to pin point on how “this didn’t work” or “that should have been better”. I am all for the improvement of both products, but it seems that even with my friends locally (and not you imaginary ones on the net), even they won’t give something credit, opting to point out how it “should have been” from their perspective.
I don’t mind looking for potential in where a direction could go. That being said, I look at it from both sides. While I can see how event (A) could lead to event (B) would result in my ideal conclusion of (C), I also take into account ways that they could fuck it up and end up with conclusion 17 (which we all know is shit). After said event unfolds, I can see that they avoided C-17 and even though it wasn’t my personal favorite conclusion, it still was an entertaining ride to get there. I’m filled with gratitude knowing that the story was entertaining, yet I find myself not wanting to discuss with a majority because so many of them refuse to view things outside of their personal “wants” and give credit to something having value, even if it wasn’t their best case scenario. Since this reaction has become the stereotype for so many wrestling fans (or so it seems), it creates a sense of boredom as the fun and interesting conversations I once had are now watered down by such narrow-minded thinking. Does that make more sense for what I was trying to convey?
