Excellent article here that I wanted to share. http://www.wrestlezone.com/editorials/2 ... ith-twenty
I agree mostly with what the author says but this part really stuck out to me the most:
Which brings me back to my initial point…I watch to be entertained. I also have been watching wrestling for a substantial period of time, meaning that I do have an understanding of the business and a desire to see an intelligent and successful direction for the product. I simply choose not to allow this desire to overcome my ability to enjoy the moments that evoke an emotional response. The day that this becomes the case is the day that I stop watching.
In the end, I have no problems with anybody expressing their opinions or disgust regarding the direction of the product. I only ask the same respect for those people who prefer to watch as a fan rather than a critic.
That last line really struck a chord and hit home to me. I really think that the majority of most of the so called "IWC" fall into that category, and I myself was there at some point to where I was being so overly critical of the product that I was thoroughly unable to enjoy it in anyway. Now watching with my son, who is just so into wrestling that it's not even funny, I am watching purely as a fan again, right now I am loving wrestling as much now or even more than when it was in it's "prime".
