Over the course of wrestling history many philosophies have changed and many of these change were attributed to the idea that everything evolves. The idea that everything evolves or changes has worked to perfectly describe the happenings within the wrestling business for the last 100 years. However thus far in the century the same philosophy or idea that has worked for so many decades previously seems to have hit a wall. The ratings are down, buy rates plummeting, and overall popularity just keeps finding way to moving back to the underground.
Many people thought that wrestling would never become so unpopular or so culturally irrelevant again after the tremendous success the sport endured in the late 1990’s along with a popularity spike. However, everything changes or evolves and sometimes not for the better as wrestling is one of the only sports in which more people used to watch it then do now. Various wrestling personalities have stated that fans normally phrase things either in the past tense when referring to their favorite moments normally because they don’t watch anymore.
Now I don’t feel as though the PG switch is too blame for the downswing in popularity as much as ignorance by promoters who somehow managed to believe that anyone can either run a wrestling company or book a wrestling company is to blame. I’m not going to be like everyone else and just say that the writers are too blame or one name in particular is to blame, because in doing that not only would I be hypocritical, but also I would be displaying extreme ignorance. This series will take you on a ride down memory lane and hopefully teach you some new details of the past and what has made the present so different.
