    @Bawb
    How dare you have your own opinion that differs from some of the other people on this website and put your input in when clearly the coment section is here for just making stupid coments from those who are the only ones allowed to be wrestling fans how dare you bawb your are truly not a wrestling fan. Now i have to stop becuase im typing to much and it may offend some of the real wrestling fans

    @Bawb

    I agree with you about a new era calling for a new type of character. That was the beginnings of the period where the anti-hero replaced the hero in terms of consumer interest. It was reflected especially in comic books, where suddenly characters like Wolverine, The Punisher, and The Dark Knight version of Batman exploded in popularity.

    I don’t know if I would call the SCSA character revolutionary, but it definitely resonated with the times.

  • El Dandy

    Surely he means he couldn’t give a rats ass?

  • poko

    jeeze Bewb, one question? would u just “shut the helllll up!!” clearly u are new here, but long winded, un-intelligent, in-coherent ramblings are characteristics of a few other people on this site, they know who they are! So yea, earn the respect before you put us all in the walls of text.

  • Bawb

    Yeah, Bruno ODs a bit with his comments. His obstinacy is way too strong concerning what defines wrestling and, for him, it’s basic technical wrestling with safe boundaries on both the good and bad characters. That’s OK for his era, but things change with the times. Austin was indeed a solid wrestler and his character was nothing short of revolutionary, pushing the envelope at time when it was necessary.

    Not too go so deep into this topic, but if you look at the mid-to-late 90s, things were changing in entertainment, especially with TV, like NYPD Blue, Sex and the City, Sopranos, etc., with music, like Hip Hop (vulgarity) and Pop (skimpy/sexy female artists and love themed stories), and with video games with such themes (Goldeneye, Resident Evil, Duke Nukem, GTA) Preteens, teenagers, and adults were all being exposed to this mold-breaking in entertainment and they all had somewhat easy and equal access to it depending on the medium. Vince and his performers were smart enough to take it a step further with it and pull this off with live televised theatre. Yes, it was taped too, but you get what I mean. And, yes, it was ECW that paved the way for them, but they had access to more homes at a significant timeslot, democratizing it more and showing it to more people.

    Bruno’s stuck in the past and probably a bit envious people succeeded just like him, if not better.

    And that’s the bottom line, because Stone Cold said so.

  • “Bad Man” Bigelow

    That deserves a HELL YEAH!
