Where is WWE going

<rant>Well I left watching WWE a few years ago when it became a kids entertainment program. I recently was switching channels and WWE came on and I realized a "superstar" named Sheamus is the champion.

He became the champion 2 months after he came to WWE. There were *wrestlers* like Stone Cold, The Rock who proved that they deserved the championship. They wrestled for years to get a championship shot. I mean look at that picture above and then these

These are the real champions. And now Vince McMahon says that the type of wrestling and story line they showed in older days (Attitude Era) was inappropriate. Those story lines are the reason WWE is standing today. They were forced to show hardcore wrestling to compete against WCW. The funny thing is, they get 3.5 Rating on the crap that they show . Even their championship belt look like a toy

</rant> Its a good thing there's TNA for *wrestling* fans

On a similar note, M&Ms just haven't been the same since they took the tan ones out.
