"The wrestling industry is looking for something to spark it again," said Hardy. "It's looking for the next act to make it exciting. In the 80s it was Hulkamania and Rock n Wrestling. In the 90s it was the Attitude Era with Stone Cold, The Rock and DX while on the other side WCW had the nWo.
"What I would suggest to the promotions is to make a sophisticated product that doesn't insult fan's intelligence. For many, many years various promotions have had the attitude that 'It's just wrestling. The fans will buy it.' I don't think wrestling competes with other wrestling programs now, it competes with the great dramas on TV now: Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy, The Walking Dead. Sure it's a fictional show with zombies, but it sets parameters so you know how the Walking Dead universe works, and they stay very consistent mythos. It's good storytelling that does not insult the fans' intelligence and I think wrestling has to follow that lead."
- Gemini Sportscards will be hosting an autograph signing with wrestling legend The Honky Tonk Man tonight at Big Lou's Toys and Collectibles, 5413 Sepulveda Blvd, Culver City, CA from 4pm - 7pm.
