Modern wrestling, and what makes wrestling modern

What makes modern wrestling modern?

What makes non-modern wrestling dated?

What wrestling is so advanced as to be postmodern?

I feel like I need an education as to this matter, as I have clearly not sufficiently modernized my tastes in professional wrestling.

Re: Daniel Bryan/Bryan Danielson Announces Retirement

So to be clear: If wrestler X is injured 18 months into a 3 year contract, WWE can only extend the contract up to 18 months? That is the way the contract reads. An alternative, and also hard to enforce, way of reading the clause is that they can extend the term until the injury is healed, though th...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

As an aside about Lucha Underground: The "regular TV" trappings have led to their fans treating it like it's a prestige drama, and it's made said fans insufferable, worse than ROH fans ever were back in the day. That casts a shadow over the enjo yability of the show, like with Justin LaBar's weird ...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

Point is Jim's argument about the purity of wrestling and it being real is hogwash. Its also not like he has steered away from it himself, from commentating on this to wrestling a Ninja Turtle in SMW. He really should stick to discussing old wrestling as he is usually entertaining and knowledgeable...

He also happens to be a massive hypocrite. When you decry realism in wrestling or the lack thereof and yet have this on your resume: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EH-fV9szTs I'm just going to assume you didn't watch the video and just saw that it included both Jim Cornette and a wrestling bear i...

Re: Rumored WrestleMania card, New Beginning & Lions Gate, Intergender Wrestling & more!

Lots of good points made here. The frustrating part is that the pro-intergender crowd doesn't understand "this is for dudes who want to beat up women for anger and/or sexual fetish reasons" thing is NOT conjecture. Besides John Thorne (I think it was him?) talking about intergender matches getting a...
