Being negative is very easy and it isn't hard to find things that stink, but wrestling is really, really great right now if you are looking in the right places.

Yeah, I'm in agreement. It's easy to feel spoiled in this environment. Whenever I'm feeling "meh" about the amount of good stuff I want to watch out there (sometimes it gets overwhelming), I take a step back and appreciate the variety, the ease of access (barring a few exceptions) and the affordability of it all. Like, if you were your watching your NJPW World yesterday and got curious about Ospreay, you can sign up for RevPro's online service or Demand Progress and watch some of his best work (his storyline in Progress was awesome, and I highly recommend it, btw). And you could get both for under the price of one DVD.

I've always said the only people who think wrestling sucks these days fall into two categories:

1) People who only watch WWE

2) Fans who live and die by what Jim Cornette says

There's no way wrestling these days can be worse than anything in the past simply for the fact the so much is available. There's going to be a live Dragon Lee vs Kamaitachi match in 22 hours. For free. Wrestling IS awesome.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

If anything there is too much great wrestling I can hardly keep up.

I have to add Wrestle-1 into my rotation now. WRESTLE-1! I hate that company! That's how good they are right now, though. Shuji Kondo vs. Yuji Hino in a few weeks - YES PLEASE. Add that onto Dragon Gate, New Japan, the Strong Lads, NOAH, some British stuff, ROH, PWG, EVOLVE - fuck, wrestling is so good right now.

I keep discovering great wrestling, I love it! I've finally gotten into joshi and I'm slowly getting better with CMLL 2/3 falls matches.

Pro wrestling is only getting better and better. It is constantly becoming more athletic, more diverse and more creative.

As a "old timey" wrestling fan from the early 80's, I truly miss the storytelling and some of the great, long series of matches you use to see. The drama of the Steamboat/Youngblood vs. Slaughter/Kernodle series was incredible and there really hasn't been anything like that since. The 2 year plus feud in GCW of Tommy Rich & Buzz Sawyer was incredible and to me, nothing beats that. I do like some of the NJPW stuff and want to get into the Rev Pro & Progress matches soon, as it seems to have elements that I might like. I really hate wrestlers like the Young Bucks, who really only do "spot wrestling". That's not wrestling, that's gymnastics.

I beg to differ. It's certainly not that creative and I don't know on what you mean by diverse. Athletic doesn't mean it's better by a long shot. Magnificent Muraco didn't fly through the air, but his matches had heat.
