Hey Lance, nothing about your favorite statement is true. While you yourself have the reputation of being the easiest to work with, your generation does not. In fact, except for the mid 2000s when strong style was all the rage...
your generation is known for being the stiffest pricks around. How quickly we forget your generation had large numbers of people refusing to take powerbombs because they were very sloppily getting dropped on the back of their heads...
Your generation is when Bret Hart had his career ended by a super kick, your generation is the one that told all the youngins to "tighten up" their forearms causing them to get rocked on a nightly basis. Your generation hit us so hard in the head with chairs that they bent...
and we weren't allowed to complain about it. It was the sloppiness (and this is coming from the botch master himself) from your generation and the stiffness from the Strong Style folk that caused wrestling to go through a change that has made pro wrestling MASSIVELY safer today
than ever before. All my big bumps I have walked away from, how many careers were cut short because of the stiffness that came out of your generation? Hell how many wrestlers were butchered from your generation because some petty prick in the locker room put out a hit on them?
except for in Mexico, hits don't even happen in wrestling anymore. So cut the crap with these tall tales of how things used to be. Us old-heads who survived the shit your generation gave us are not gonna stand by and let you shovel it on the youngins now.

I keep seeing stuff like this and honestly, we haven't. There is 2 hours to fill and they don't want to have 2-3 minute matches just to stick more people on TV, so there is going to be some downtime as new people are rotated into angles. Cont'd...
Part 2: On top of this there are little things the fans aren't privy too, for instance my ring cardio was at such a low point (I have improved it 200% now) that in my match with Kenny we had to cut a good 5 minutes out because I was done, or other little things. Cont'd...
Part 3: For instance, to the annoyance of @AngelicoAAA I have been pulling schitz styles on everything from in-ring character, gear and all the way to if we need to do more or less "cool moves" as a heel team. Finally on-top of it all... cont'd...
