I used to watch the WWE a long time ago when it used to be the WWF, because the 80s and 90s had some of the best superstars and legends such as Hulk Hogan, Macho Man Randy Savage, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, just to name a few out of the many old school gimmicks that I remember during the WWF and WCW years. I don't watch WWE anymore because of a few reasons below. - The WWE Brandsplit in their first draft (2002) - Anything related to John Cena - All of today's WWE shows are now rated TV-PG - The WWF Attitude Era is already over since March 2002 - Storylines and Superstars today are not as good as it used to be
And as for TNA, I don't watch that either. No offense to anyone who is still watching WWE, but this is what I feel about WWE nowadays.

I forgot to mention that WWE's version of ECW today doesn't look anything like ECW Hardcore Wrestling anymore because of Vince McMahon making it too softcore without Extreme Rules, plus we all know that the WWE is too fake. It's been scripted for a long time, plus some cities in the states don't get WWE Superstars because it's on WGN America.
Yeah I see your point. The meaning of the word "Hardcore" for ECW left when Tazz, Terry Funk, Sabu all retired. Even though I watch it alot, I feel it is people like John Cena, Rey Mysterio, Shad & JTG that keep WWE in the PG rating. Former WWE CEO, Linda McMahon is now running for Senator of Conneticut and for that WWE is forced to stay in the PG rating. And the closest we have for reminders of WWF is Jerry "The King" Lawler.
