Anyone catch the Bill Watts interview JR did?
Watts regurgitates many of the same answers he's been doing on shoot interviews over the past ten years, but he really hits the nail on the head  on one time.  He talks about how losing the territories killed wrestling to some extent.  Perhaps that wasn't the case until  WCW was gone, but he says people get sick of the same shit every month no  matter how good it is (he uses the analogy of eating chocolate cake every day), and he's really right on the ball.  Think about Cena and Randy Orton.  The shelf life of guys like this in the 80s or 90s would have been a fraction of the time.  Now, today, they have nowhere to go to get fresh.
It's a good, long interview, and JR is able to ask some damn good leading questions.  Check it out if you get a chance.

I listened to it yesterday and enjoyed it too. Well worth the 60 minutes. Agree Watts says much of what he has in the past but I think he was even more candid than on shoots I've seen.

This one is actually almost two hours, but it flies by.
