Welcome back to the wild world of pro wrestling! Honestly, this is the greatest time to be a fan. WWE has never been better with an incredible roster backed by NXT and bolstered by the arrival of the Network. New Japan Pro has struck a perfect balance of character building with incredible in-ring work, and its even easier to get into thanks to online communities and international streaming options.
And most importantly.. Wrestling just feels cool again, and in a way that isn’t super-cringey like it was in the Attitude Era. When I see people wearing CM Punk or Daniel Bryan hoodies, I think that’s awesome. Remember when dudes used to walk around wearing shirts that said “Suck It?” Or how about “Slap Nuts?” Wrestling will never be high brow entertainment, but at least now as fans we can actually blend into the fabric of society.
Thanks for picking up the game, I hope you enjoy it. Enjoy just being a fan and don’t try and get too caught up in what the “smarks” think about the current state of things. If you like it, keep watching. If not, it’ll always be around to lure you back in eventually.
