- WWE officials are looking to be more edgier with RAW. The feeling is that Vince McMahon isn’t behind the new push but obviously is on-board with it. Vince realizes that numbers are down and it’s said that he is open to suggestions.

Then let Dean Ambrose do what he does and stop trying to make CM Punk look weak and make it so that a HEEL can actually beat a superface clean.

Edgier wasn't what made the Attitude Era great, it was matchmaking and people maximizing their talent.

If Vince wants that again he needs to stop keeping people that deserve a shot in the backdrop.

We'll see. if Cena beats Ziggler or if Ziggler doesn't beat Cena clean then obviously nothing is changing.

Well CM Punk has been champion for 388 days but Cena still gets in main event storylines and is booked as the superhero and NO ONE beats him clean still. He's fighting Dolph Ziggler now. HOPEFULLY Ziggler wins.

But like I said, Vince needs to let Dean Ambrose cut loose and not censor him, so he can get more promos like this

Ziggler is gonna win on Sunday, I read that they're keeping Cena on the low till Mania when he faces Rock for the title (Rock is gonna win at the Rumble btw). I really like what they are doing with the Shield though, seems NWOish

I think while they want to push it to a more controversial limit, the Attitude Era will never be brought back because of the personalities that were involved, they were the ones that made that. CM Punk is really the only guy that can work the mic in the industry.

yea, attitude era was more of a combination of good writing and acting if you ask me, what made the atittude ear great was the stuff between the actual matches...the stuff leading up to matches...the characters were better...off the top of my head, rock, austin, michaels, helmsley, DX, foley, taker, even early kane...everything from the sidekicks to the tag teams were all better...i think it was more about those people than anything else...they just don't build 'em like they used to

what also made the era great was the fact that we were seeing things we had never really seen before...as in the story...in and out of the ring. styles of matches, etc....hell in a cell matches...TLC matches...just aren't the same after you've seen 10 of 'em...there's only so much that can be done with respect to a wrestling ring, and wrestling characters, and i think part of the problem is at this point, we've seen it all before

yea, the list goes on...kurt angle, ken shamrock...

i mean, you'll never see a better hell in a cell than the undertaker mankind 1998 king of the ring

never see a better i quit match than rock mankind at the 99 royal rumble

never a better tables/ladders/chairs match than that original (or 2nd i forget which was better) edge/christian V dudleyz V hardeys...whenever that was, i believe a wrestlemania...

the new age outlaws? no one gets excited for tag matches anymore (do they?) they were great to watch

non gimmick matches? almost anything with foley back then...whether it was rock, stone cold, undertaker, dude had some classics...

If they do maybe I'll start watching again. I stopped watching when Cena became invincible. CM Punk seems like a cool dude but I won't watch the WWE just for him.

I'd reccomend checking out some Dean Ambrose then. Kid looks like the future and apparently he'll be getting a big push soon. Posted one of his promos during his feud with William Regal. Was very intense, reminded me of an ECW one to be honest.

Of course back in ECW EVERY promo was awesome. So the fact that his can even remind me of such a thing is a good sign. And Luckily the WWE is smart enough to be pushing him at the moment along with Seth Rollins whom is an awesome wrestler in the ring but not as great on the mic, luckily Ambrose does most of the talking.

They aren't the Nexus, they are pretty different. They are more like guns for hire on the things that go wrong. The same people getting main event pushes, young stars being held back. Management backing people like Ryback when there's more talented. Champions getting buried etc. They are pretty much the IWC

Dean Ambrose said it best "We're not the Nexus, and if you want the nWo go buy the dvd"
