Sexy Dad Posted March 25, 2017 Share Posted March 25, 2017 I'm sure we have all had a time when enough was enough and didn't feel compelled to keep up with WWE or any wrestling for a while. After a pretty eventful 2006 which included a DX Reunion, an ECW revival and Booker T becoming a king it was the sight of Bobby Lashley at the end of December to Dismember holding the title after an awful show which killed my interest outside of the odd big show for a year and a half. However, in mid 2008 the reinvention of Jericho (drink it in, man) and the very personal feud with the HBK bought me right back in. I was a huge fan of Jericho and was gutted when he left in 2005 after finally getting the chance to get stuck in to something worthwhile with Cena. I was disappointed to Jericho seemingly spinning his wheels at Mania 24 with the MITB mid card and seeing the suit wearing character evolve and lead to bloody brawls, Jericho decking Mrs Hickenbottom and a great ladder match bought me right back in. Mania 25 season then went on to be probably the dullest in the last 15 years outside of 2015 and the Orton stuff outside of the Vince punting led to a lot of fast forwarding but when Smackdown seemingly got the upper hand in 2009 draft, I had a new weekly must watch show. Jericho, Punk, Jeff Hardy, Rey Mysterio, Edge and what felt like a John Morrison on the rise led to a really solid and enjoyable time to tune in. The Jericho vs Rey feud and Punk vs Hardy of course being the standouts. Since this point I've always at the least kept tabs on week to week and probably watched every pay per view. There's always something worthwhile amongst the shite and I think the Jericho-Michaels feud shown that if you're a fan of the WWE - there is probably something going on that you would really enjoy even if in the modern day you are greeted by a Stephanie promo. Does anybody have a new specific memories of storylines or specific wrestlers bringing them back? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
