4th Golden Age

Recommended Posts

When I read about the history of wrestling, there are 3 "golden ages." The first Golden age was wrestling on TV. Second, was wrestling becoming global in the 1980's. The third was during the Monday Night Wars of the 1990's, and wrestling expanding as a whole. Do you think there will ever be a 4th golden age? If so how do you think it will happen.

There would need to be legit compertiton in the TV market from a company who could compete with WWE on a finacial basis and atleast 3 or 4 wrestlers who have massive amounts of charisma and ability to connect to the wider audiance not just the wrestling fans

 

Its a very long shot that that will ever happen and while it is never be 100% guarenteed it won't I can't see it happening in my lifetime personally

It will only happen if two other things happen;

 

1) WWE get's a genuine WCW level competitor, not TNA, not ROH, a genuine threat to it's ratings.

 

2) A wrestler comes along and recieves a push who appeals to an audience outside of wrestling, like Hogan, Austin or the Rock.

 

Then it MIGHT happen.

 

It won't happen again IMO. The mainstream attention seems to be drifting towards cage fighting now. Plus every angle has pretty much been booked so often that you can figure it out beforehand. Austin / Rock were breakout stars because they arrived at exactly the time that wrestling's audience changed.

 

Hogan was the first guy to reach that sort of level, and a lot of that was the way he was booked (his movie career bombed) Of the three Dwayne Johnson is the only one to have made a successful career in the mainstream.

Yeah, and that's only by distancing himself from WWE as much as possible.
