I DVR WWE/AEW/NEXT, watch maybe 15 minutes total. Haven't really watched anything "live" since NJPW left AXS TV. I catch AJPW/NOAH/BJW on various channels and occasionally watch 80's GCW every once in a while.

I still watch Raw, Smackdown, and the PPV's.  The shows struggle to keep my attention because of the length and all of the replays, etc.  Not to mention the repetitive story lines.
I still watch Golden Era stuff like the old PPV's, tv shows, etc.  I watch Prime Time on the Network.  I wish they'd load some more Golden Era house shows.  It's been years (probably since 2014) since they've done that.

What *current* wrestling? None. It's not some kind of moral statement, and I'm happy people still watch. It's just not for me.

That said, I still do watch old wrestling. I have hundreds of discs in my collection. Over the past seven years, I've been rewatching Prime Time Wrestling and the NWA Saturday Night show. I have a bunch of Wrestlemania dvds I still need to watch. I'm going back and rewatching the NWA/WCW PPVs from the late 80s/early 90s. It seems like there's an unlimited amount of stuff historically that's out there to be consumed or re-consumed without even diving into any of the stuff that's uploaded to Youtube.

With work and dad/husband duties, I get about an hour a night to myself. Between occassionnaly watching wrestling, all of the books and comics I want to read, watching baseball in the summer, card collecting, occassionally playing Strat-o-matic baseball, I'm a total nerd.

Unfortunately, the current product doesn't fit into my schedule.

Only one I make a point to watch is AEW. Sometimes I'll have RAW/Smackdown on in the background if there's nothing else on.

Live is usually only AEW because that’s the only show that doesn’t seem to drag for 10 hours. Everything else is on my DVR and I’ll spend as much time scanning them as necessary. But I do try to watch a little of every available show including NWA and MLW.

Current era - MLW on my own and bits and pieces of the E with my kids.

Wrestling in general - I’ve been watching 1994 / 1995 WWF and WCW. A bad time in wrestling but a time I really enjoy.

1991 / 1992 AJPW; 93 and 94 are my favorite years but I’ve been trying to expand my horizons.

I watch on youtube- I subscribe to many channels and manage to sift between the 2 minute clips of promos and find whole shows. I like the variety, but sometimes the quality is poor due to the age of the tapings.

Nothing current. I was watching NJPW on AXS, but quit when the guys left to form AEW. I watched AEW for the first seven weeks, but never got into the habit like I had on Monday nights. I watched a half dozen episodes of Impact since thanksgiving, it’s better than it was but nothing worth watching and I can’t deal with a woman as men’s champ. Sami Callihan should challenge for the female strap if he can’t beat Tessa Blanchard. And I catch up with the NWA once a month on my lunch hour if I have time. Nothing is must see. The most I watch now is daily at lunch I look at old stuff on YouTube or listen to the shoot interviews. Arn has a good podcast on YouTube and I will always be entertained by Cornette. That guy up in Canada that got AIDS from Abby is boring as fuck and his shoots always sound like they are recorded in a men’s room, so I avoid him. But there are some timeline shoots that are cool with the guy that likes to talk about who has the biggest cock in the locker room and which hole got the most meat pumped into it. If he played it straight, he would have the best shoots out there because he does homework.

Omega was a main eventer, but the Bucks were mostly fodder in New Japan.

Arn is really good. I find myself listening to those short clips on a YouTube also.

Once a year my buddy invites me over to see WM, and I still get a kick out of it. It still has a special feel to me.
Other than that, I do not watch anything current, and rarely watch the old stuff anymore.

Watch youtube clips of the 80's and 90's. 70's if I can find them.
