Okay I will admit I am one of those professional wrestling junkies from way back. I watched Georgia Championship Wrestling every Saturday Night when it was on. Yes, this post may not be as sports related as I usually talked about, but I wanted to talk about the decline of this once popular sport. OMG did I just call it a sport. Okay, sports entertainment is the more proper term as do not want to offend anyone. I have over the years watched professional wrestling go downhill and it looks like there is no end in sight.
During the peak of Professional Wrestling stars like Hulk Hogan, Randy "Macho Man" Savage, Superstar Billy Graham, and Ric Flair were megastars. Most of these have retired or died, and some just do not wrestle anymore. Of course there was a lot of names I did not mention and in the comments mention your favorite wrestler as I would love to know who you cheered for. Fast forward today and you have professional wrestling without the stars anymore. The wrestlers like The Undertaker, and Triple H are just getting to old to do it anymore.
The WWE and others have struggled to find those big name stars that fans have come to expect from them. Fans instead are being treated to wrestlers way passed their prime and that is a shame. During the 80's and 90's when wrestling was at it's peak new faces could always be found, but that is not the case anymore. Yes, professional wrestling is in decline and I do not think it will ever get back to where it once was anytime soon.
