I actually have started watching bits and bobs of pro wrestling recently. Even went to a TNA house show with my mum and sis. Had a great time. There was no tough guy mentality, no nasty energy, no tossers wearing tap out t shirts and the like, just a bunch of different people chanting well known wrestling phrases and enjoying a good show. Ironically enough it felt more honest than a MMA show. I'd go again. Not sure about WWE because I find the Macmahon's distasteful, but TNA is quite good.

I think the last 3 post on the last page have brought up great points. Removing the "Dominate Champion" does make things more interesting for those divisions.

There is a sense that some of the novelty has worn off over time.

Also the video game analogy is terrific.

Good stuff.

I'll only admit it here, but I'm a closet pro-wrestling fan still. It's hard to let go of the Hulkamania even in middle age years.

MMA is great, beside a few trolls, haters, fanboys and rogue teenagers who believe they know all and are unable or unwilling to review their positions we have to withstand from time to time.

WWE and TNA are like Rap and Hip Hop.

WWE=HipHop. Mainstream and rated E.
TNA=Rap. Dirty and underground.

I have not watched WWE in over 10 years.
I watch TNA every week.
The best TNA PPV of the year is this weekend. Lockdown.

TNA+Bellator. A match made in heaven
(A very violent Heaven)

But for some is it about falling out of love with MMA? Or falling out of love with UFC?

I think watching some other orgs like Warning suggested may help, CWFC (MMAJunkie stream their shows), BAMMA and Bellator may intill some faith in the sport.

That's the measure I'm taking. Forget their joke of a LHW tournament...Bellators other divisions are actually pretty damn good. And it's a refreshing break from UFC.

I hate having no alternatives to the UFC like the WEC and Pride and Dream and even old small bit ones like the IFL and Affliction.

You left off Legacy Fighting Championship. Aren't you looking forward to Holm fighting for the title next month?

I meant legitimately good ones not other orgs filled with boring fights and cans. Pride rivaled the UFC and probably were beating them until they folded, WEC was owned by zuffa but even before then they put on great fights. Affliction only lasted 2 events but they were fun and dream was fun while it lasted too.
