I agree, they did get some new acquisitions though picking up Jeff Hardy, Mr. Anderson (formerly Mr. Kennedy), and RVD (who is their champion. But yeah, they are the new WCW, they have Hogan, Kevin Nash, Ric Flair, and Sting still going.

My favourite match of all time has to be The Rock vs Hogan at wrestlemania 18
It wasnt even that good of a match wrestling wise but the crowd response more than made up for it, i still get goosebumps when i watching it.
And i agree with you all saying TNA is the new WCW, why Hogan, flair and Nash (who shouldnt have ever been in the ring to be begin with) are still in the ring in 2010 is beyond me. If you had told me ten years ago that these guys were still wrestling i would have laughed, but its beyond a joke now.

I remember that match, it was funny all the fans were cheering for Hogan.

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.

I became disenchanted with a lot of the attitude era bullshit. I did catch some things like the Mick Foley hardcore fights and a couple other things, but at the time I couldn't stand all the bullshit. I went back and watched what I determined to be the necessary matches years down the road. I have copies of every Summerslam and WM, as well as several other compilations.

The current WWF format is garbage. A bunch of no-named idiots who look like they were fratboys turned underwear models turned "wrestlers." The gimmicks are terrible and the writing is shameful. Both TNA and WWF rely way too much on dinosaurs.

We didn't know how good we had it with the real ECW. I miss the RVD/Tommy Dreamer fights among other things.

My main disappointment with TNA is that they seem afraid of making any money. They have the money to sign popular former WWE champs like Kurt Angle, RVD and Jeff Hardy and have popular vets like Sting yet a lot of people have no clue who they are. I think they have a better roster and put on more exciting matches than the WWE does right now. But they don't market at all and let people know about them. I'm not saying they should be playing the same arenas WWE does but they should at least be able to play in 5-6 thousand seat arenas with no problem instead of playing at the Impact Zone every week.

Hogan is an "on air athority figure" so I don't mind that he's around. Sting, Nash and Flair do the job of being serviceable verterans. It's not like they're hogging the world title scene anymore so i'm OK with them still being there.

I was at that show live and the crowd was insane for Hogan and booing the shit outta the Rock. It was awesome, the crowd was like 90 percent in Hogans favor. Everyone was in shock when the Rock won but it was the right call since Hogan has had enough big wins and it helped the Rock further his legendary status.

I don't think the WWE is relying too much on the old guys. They do have a decent youth monvemnet going right now. Unfortunately the only guy among them who has the wrestling skill and charisma to be a star for years to come is CM Punk.

I miss the old ECW as well but they've got a ton of DVDs of that out there now and you can relive it any time you want. Which is better because I don't wanna see those guys, who are all 40 or better now, try and wrestle like that and kill themselves today.

I watched a little in the late 90's early 00's thanks to a friend who was a huge wrestling fan. I even went to Wrestlemania 17 in the astrodome. Other than that, I saw WCW, ECW and WWF Raw roll through Dallas.

I haven't watched it in years. It got too stupid and was the same story lines over and over.

Wrestlemania 17 that was a pretty good one they had The Rock/Austin, HHH/Undertaker, and Edge/Christian vs. The Hardys in a TLC match. You're lucky you saw that live man.

Yeah. Don't forget that Motorhead was there as well, playing HHH's theme.
