Corey Graves On What Parts Of The Attitude Era He’d Like The WWE To Revisit

During an episode of “After The Bell”, Corey Graves discussed the good and bad parts of The Attitude Era. Here’s what he had to say:

The Attitude Era was awesome because you had a bunch of Superstars who were allowed to figure things out, allowed to be themselves, allowed to connect and weren’t pigeonholed or forced into these garbage circumstances. And every once in a while there was a terrible storyline but people made it work because you could laugh at yourself. It was tongue-in-cheek. The talent made each other better. It was a competition, night after night. You talk to Stone Cold,” Graves said, “you talk to Triple H, anybody who was on top during that era—you had to figure out how to survive. It made everybody better, it made the product better.

Yeah, there were a ton of awful, horrendous storylines. Mae Young gave birth to a hand, there was Katie Vick. I mean, some of the worst storylines in the business’s history took place in the Attitude Era,” Graves said, “but as a whole, the business was on fire because everybody had to step up. Even if you were in a garbage circumstance and a terrible story, you had an opportunity to make your own path and I think that’s what we need. That’s what we as fans miss from the Attitude Era. Not crude storylines, not lewdness, not ‘puppies’ and jokes like that. We need more action and guys who are badasses, allowed to be badasses, allowed to be entertaining, which I think is the goal for Rusev in this entire scenario, to make Rusev entertaining but also be a badass. But give him somebody to fight, give him some circumstances that allow him to be a star and show what he’s capable of.
