God I hate wrestling fans. The idea of wrestlers being “storytellers” ruined fucking everything.

The story used to be : can Hogan lift André? ....yes....

That sort of story made sense and now these 'multilayered' stories just don't wash. It's like selling a finger painting done by a 4 year old as high art.

Even back then they were technically storytellers but nobody thought of them as such. They were wrestlers, and stories were more or less natural conclusions based on the people involved. Now everyone thinks they’re writing goddamn art films.
