    ~Jim Cornette talks about what’s wrong with the concept of professional wrestling today~

    Wow, there’s a switch. 🙂 Seriously though he’s right. Too many matches today resemble more of a gymnastics floor-exercise than a wrestling match. It seems like they are trying to get points for how many spectacular moves they can do, rather than telling a story and letting a spectacular-move here and there be part of that story.

    Way too many false-finishes in matches to where no one is even selling each others moves anymore. Especially in the independents. There are some that still do it right and it all depends on the promotor. One of the local independent feds where I live (Brew City Wrestling) ran by Frankie Defalco, they really give it 100%. I’ve always been highly entertained by their matches and they still do good story telling.

    One problem though is that the attention-spans of people nowadays is very limited so they don’t have the patience we did back in the 80s and 90s to see good story-telling in a match.
