Let’s Say Nice Things About... WWE in 2011

Now more than ever, the world needs a good dose of positivity. We here at Cageside Seats will do our small part to bring that positivity on a daily basis. Throughout the entirety of 2017, we’ll say something nice about wrestling and everything around it, past, present, and future.

As a reminder, only positive comments are allowed here. No negative comments, no troll comments, no back-handed compliments. None of that here. You have the rest of the site for that. Any comments that are not in the spirit of this feature will be flagged, deleted, and posters of said comments may be subjected to a ban.

Today’s subject: WWE in 2011, generally regarded as one of the most disappointing years in company history.

For better or worse, 2011 began the era of the part-timer. I know I’ll be in the minority when I say this, but think how many more people would have lost interest sooner if it weren’t for them. Or how many people wouldn’t have returned to the sport they once loved if if weren’t for them.

Seriously, who DIDN’T pop for the return of The Rock?

Or CM Punk’s moment of triumph: winning the WWE Championship and leaving with it with his trunks on.

And his epic return eight days later.

We also got The Miz, Wrestlemania main-eventer and R-Truth, main-eventer of TWO PPVs. TWO.

Ok, your turn. Say something nice about WWE in 2011.

Got a suggestion for a future “Let’s Say Nice Things About...”? Hit me up on the Twitter gimmick @notoriouseddie. I may not always respond, but I will read it.
