Michael "The Benchwarmer" Zuidema of Grand Rapids Press had the following blurb about how he was disappointed with the recent wrestling show at Van Andel Arena:

The WWE came and went at Van Andel Arena. And speaking as someone who was an avid fan as recently as five years ago, I couldn't believe how depressing it was. Maybe it's the nostalgic in me talking, but everything seemed so predictably boring and routine.

It was like watching a rerun of "Everybody Loves Raymond." It's times like these that you realize just how much pro wrestling misses The Rock, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and Doink the Clown. "Memories, like the corners of my mind. ... Misty water-colored memories. ...Of the way we were." Sigh.
