That triple threat championship match has to be one of the best I've ever seen. Amazing stuff.

Too bad it was followed by probably the worst royal rumble match ever. Can't believe they were thick enough to actually book a Roman Reigns win. FUCK YOU VINCE!

So I don't even know who Roman Reigns is, but do people hate him because he actually sucks or is he a really good heel like Triple H was back in the day?

He's a below average wrestler who is shockingly bad on the mic. But since he's got the 'look' (and maybe also because he's The Rock's cousin), they've decided to force him down the fans' throats as the future face of the company - essentially Cena 2.0.

Ooh. That's bad. Cena is the reason I stopped watching about 10 years ago.

Cena was the reason I didn't get into WWE after the merger. I couldn't stand hearing about how "Dreamy" he was. I was like, Um...wrestling? Anyone?

Yeah. I just wasn't into the whole "oh now he's a rapper" gimmick. I'm not a fan of rap so that didn't help either. A couple years later when I heard that he was selling as much merchandise as The Rock, DX, and Stone Cold once did, I couldn't believe it.

Attitude Era WWE was the best WWE. Haven't cared about the current incarnation at all. It's no coincidence, either, that the Attitude Era was essentially a response to pretty strong competition from WCW, and the current situation stems from the demise of that company. Competition makes everyone step up their game, which the WWE has sorely lacked of late.

Uh, when exactly did this "merger" take place?

People hate Reigns not because he's a heel (which he no longer is), but because McMahon isn't listening to the fans and pushing him over fan favorites/good workers like Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler.

Reigns is actually pretty talented, but McMahon has decided to strap a rocket to him regardless of whether he has earned his stripes with the fans.

Cena got big around the time I was in high school, which I realize was a few years after the two became one entity, but it was always that final nail where I would say to myself, 'looks like I'm not missing anything.'

Actually a merger never took place. WCW was purchased by McMahon and eventually destroyed for good in 2001. In 2002, the WWF split the company into two different brands (AKA- The Brand Extension), Raw and Smackdown. Shortly after that, the WWF (World Wrestling Federation) changed the name of the company to WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment). A few months later, John Cena made his WWE debut. Fast forward 3 years later. Cena faces JBL for the WWE title at WrestleMania 21 and defeats him to win the WWE title for the first time. Since then, Cena has been the top guy in WWE.
