The Elite Saga: The Best Storyline In Wrestling History Finds Its Ending


Once in a generation, there is a wrestling storyline so involving, so emotionally compelling, that it completely redefines the way that stories are told inside of a wrestling ring. The Mega Powers exploding, Steve Austin defying Vince McMahon and the corporation, CM Punk rattling the foundations of heaven in the Summer of Punk. Each times these stories take place, they fascinate an audience far beyond the usual ones that tune in each week because wrestling is a rare art form that has the ability to communicate to anyone who watches it. It is comprised of body language and physical chemistry, and is born of the base tropes that define every society. It’s really, really, really goddamn cool, and we never see these storylines coming, because how could we?
