    Bring back the Rock n Wrestlin cartoons with current WWE wrestlers… Cena= hulk. Kofi=JYD. CM punk=piper. ADR=iron sheik. etc….. For those that do not know what I am talking about YouTube it young ones. I have been a fan/mark since I was 3 years old as I am 37 now and have seen this wonderful sport that we love go thru the lows and highs. The one thing that will always be is that everyone will not be happy all the time. The problem with today’s wrestling is that we have been use to seeing the HHH, taker,HBK and many other legends that there is little for other wrestlers to grow because the 95% of you that are reading this would love to see all the older guys of the 90′s on TV right now then the product of today with the newer guys. CM Punk got super over last year because he gave us 5% of what Stone Cold gave us every week during the 90′s. I know it is hard to grasp this product that they feed us, but at the end of day, we have to eat what is infront of us or we will go hungry.
