Wrestling

Since we're on the topic I wanted to know:

Who are your favorite wrestlers?
What events have you been to?
What are you all time favorite matches?

When I was a kid I was a big Randy Savage fan. He made everybody he got in the ring with look 10x better than they were. Early Taker, Warrior, Hitman, New Jack, and most of all RVD are some other favorites.

When I was young I went to Royal Rumble '94 which was sweet.

I used to love ECW, stopped watching WWF in 96 and tried to get back into it but it's pretty much a shell of what it once was. A castrated, crippled, shell. Living in CT I have to think a lot of it is attributed to Linda's senate campaign.

I always like WCW...favorites were Goldberg and Sting. Haven't watching in probably 12 years though.

I've been to three events

03Oct2000 - Smackdown Taping - Baltimore Arena
30Jul2001 - Raw is War - Philly
August 2001 (there's no date on the ticket) - ECW Arena TV taping, didnt know it at the time but it ended up being the last show at ecw arena

Dont watch anymore, but i got a ton of enjoyment out of it in the late 90s/early 00s

Haven't watched any since the early '90s, but SummerSlam '92 (which I believe was actually held in London) was outstanding and I watched it over and over on VHS.

Always was a fan of Undertaker and Warrior back then. The unnecessary theatrics pissed me off after a while and I stopped watching any of it around about when McMahon took over and it all got real silly real quick. I don't miss it.

The Undertaker is the only wrestler I've ever followed, and I've kind of been off and on with him even. Before, during, and directly after the whole Chris Benoit fiasco I was really into wrestling though. I don't really have any motivation to get back into it.

Damn you stopped watching WWF in 1996? You missed a lot of good stuff.

My favorite wrestler of all time is The Undertaker. He has been for a very long time and no one will ever top him. Some of my other all time favorites are Randy Savage, Mr. Perfect, Roddy Piper, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Steve Austin, Mick Foley, Chris Jericho, HHH and Chris Benoit. I know what Benoit did to his family and himself was terrible but it doesn't change for me how good he was in the ring.

My dad first started taking me to WWF shows in the mid 80s when I was a kid. I've been to televised shows, non TV shows, PPVs etc. I was at wrestlemanina in Toronto in 2002. Triple H beat Jericho in the main event for the WWF undisputed title. This was also the wrestlemania that had the epic encounter between the Rock and Hulk Hogan. It was awesome being in the crowd for that match.

Wrestlers i've meet before:

The Hart Foundation (Bret Hart & The Anvil) sometime in the late 80s at an autograph signing. They had the tag title belts with them and everyone got to touch them.

Rady Savage and Elizabeth- At an autrograph signing sometime before wresltmania 4 when Savage won the WWF title.

Ric Flair, The Big Show and Chris Benoit - WWF fan acsess wrestlemaina weekend 2002. I have all their autographs still.

I still somewhat pay attention today because some of my favorites from the attitude era like Undertaker, Kane, Jericho, HHH, Edge and Christian are still around but the newer generation doesn't have anything too special and doesn't get me excited at all.

Favorite wrestlers: Mick Foley and "Sick" Nick Mondo (CZW)

I've only been to one live event and it was an XWW show in my area. Not a big fan of wresling anymore, except for the indys.

As for matches... I'll get back to you guys on that later.

Yeah, I tune into TNA every now and then, but I'm really disappointed in the product. They became the new WCW, but for alll the bad reasons.
