It has been known that wrestling fans could shape the scope of who they like and don't. In the 80's, they routed for Hulk Hogan and cheered and booed for Ric Flair, they know who to cheer for and who to boo. It was black and white, their was no shades of grey. There was a balance.
I usually identify with the wrestling fans as an indicator of culture and cultures values. They will listen to a chrasmatic leader. They are the indicators of change and have predicted many things in society. They choose their heroes.
What is going on now is scary because Bray Wyatt is becoming popular like a cult hero. He reminds me of Raven, but Raven was booed. However, Bray is cheered. And they cheered him Rowen and Harper as they beat and won against John Cena all was legal. This society rejects the heroes they push down on us. They reject the phony heroes who live well even though they work hard. No knock on John Cena, he has done a lot for the business and has kept it going when wrestling wasn't popular, but maybe they think of him because of that. He held on to the throne and he has given many people a shot. But still, he has been good for too long in a society that is mixed on him and a wrestling world that is changing. John Cena carried the weight and now a whole company can is capable of carrying the weight.
Bray Wyatt is anti culture. and Anti Culture is big right now. Where John Cena is equivalent to Captain America, Bray Wyatt, Daniel Bryan, CM Punk are equivalent to X Men. It's societies celebrities are Lady Gaga, Johnny Depp, and Miley Cyrus and they are big right now. We are changing and counter culture is becoming big because the world is not right and it's rebelling against what is right.
We are a society that has turned Batman to the darkside and in a way it's fitting because the heroes are the villains in society. I know this to be true because they cheered when three guys beat up one man and perhaps they did they during the nWo days. And they cheered for DX.
The fact is our society is changing and they are more blatant in their cheers. And this generation coming up values what I value. I cheer for The Shield and Daniel Bryan and I even like Luke Harper. Their is no doubt they are great performers and they become the standard and have become big. They fight for a purpose. They had to turn the heat up in order for everyone to perform better. The Shield is like DX and Daniel Bryan is like Stone Cold. The only difference they are doing more right now.
What happens with societies values and why is it rebelling. Maybe because we are told what to think and the rich have all the money, they don't know how to work everything seems that it is easy for them. Someone who has an honest job can't make it any more. Someone with two jobs can't do it either and we have a problem on our hands. People are rebelling and want change. They want a better way of living.
It reminds me of what The Shield said about Evolution on the post game show. Their heart's aren't in it as they were before and their minds are everywhere else and sitting on their millions of dollars. This is what is wrong with the world. The rich have made it, but don't know how it is to be poor and hungry. This is why their is change in what is wrong with the world and why the fans have changed. I don't think it's wrong. I think balance needs to be restored in this world.
