When you stop to think about it, the WWE has some of the strangest fans in the world. We love wrestling, yet we seem to complain about the product more often than we enjoy it.
The bulk of us over the years seemed to have become a little too smart for WWE's own good. By now, we know what we do and don't like. So when the machine shoves wrestlers down our throats who we don't really care about, *cough* Roman Reigns *cough*, it's sometimes difficult for us to keep watching every week. Not that there's anything wrong with Roman Reigns per say, but when fans have been vocally clamoring to see someone else in the main event and WWE blatantly ignores it, we're going to lose interest fast.
Yeah, we may stop watching every now and again, but hey, Daniel Bryan could return next week and guess what, we'll be there to see it. That's the beauty of WWE. Our opinions can change on the flip of a dime as long as they do something cool.
As much as we may harp on the WWE, there's still millions if not a billion fans around the world. So obviously they have to be doing something right. But for the hardcore wrestling fan, the product seems to have become stale ever since the WWE went PG back in 2008. Back in the Attitude Era, we had moment after moment week after week that had us in awe. Now, these moments seem a bit few and far between and I'm not sure whether or not this is on purpose since WWE doesn't have any real competition anymore but I think it's time WWE creative starts getting, I don't know, a little more creative? But I will say this. When wrestling's good, it's amazing. And if you're a true fan of the WWE, there's always going to be moments that draw you back in. This is why we bring to you...
The Top 15 Moments that restored our faith in WWE.
15 Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels Make Amends
14 The Nexus Takeover
13 The Pipe Bomb
12 That Other Pipe Bomb
The storybook ending every fan wanted to see, Daniel Bryan overcame the odds by defeating Triple H in the opening match to earn himself a spot in the main event in which he would win the WWE championship. To Daniel Bryan fans (which is pretty much most of us), this night will forever be known as Yestlemania and it was great to see WWE was finally willing to listen to its fans and put the title on someone different for a change.
9 SummerSlam: Brock Lesner vs. John Cena
8 Sting's Debut
7 WrestleMania 31
6 Kevin Owens and John Cena
John Cena brought prestige back to the United States Championship when he decided to defend the title each and every week by issuing an open challenge to anybody willing to take him on. And when Kevin Owens made his debut to the WWE roster, we were treated to not only one, but three amazing matches over a period of two months. Every single one of them became instant classics, and it wasn't until those matches that Cena finally broke the five moves of doom, doing some crazy impressive stuff we weren't expecting.
5 The New Day
4 Divas Revolution
3 NXT Takeover: Brooklyn
2 The Reality Era
1 The Debut of AJ Styles
TNA's poster child and the King of the Indies finally made the transition to the WWE, debuting in the 30-man Royal Rumble match last month and though he didn't win, he was the Superstar everybody was talking about. It'll be exciting to see AJ Styles meet up with some of WWE's finest, and the possibilities for new opponents and feuds are endless. AJ's signing proves the WWE is willing to bring in stars who have made a name for themselves elsewhere, and with the rumored signing of The Bullet Club, we all have faith that the roster can actually be the best it has ever been in a very long time.
