If you are familiar with the 4 horsemen
If you're entertained by the sight of Jimmy Snuka leaping of the top of a steel cage
If you remember Tony Atlas like this instead of the laughing jackass sidekick from the Abraham Washington show
If you know the history of the Muta Scale
Then this is the thread for you.
Any other wrestling fans in the house? Surely I'm not the only adult that still enjoys this stuff. :biggrin:

To this day I still watch WWE (at times). When I fully got into wrestling, I was a pretty big Hardy Boyz fan (really dug the high flying crazy moves they did).
And my BCP name is actually taken from wrestling stable Too Cool (Scotty 2 Hotty, Grandmaster Sexay and Rikishi). Favourite wrestler was Grandmaster Sexay, he was pretty awesome with the dance moves. Too bad Too Cool got disbanded, I miss 'em. Good ol' days.
Wrestlers I like watching are:
Maria (go figure).

Rikishi was hilarious, What ever happened to him?

I mainly watch TNA. My favorite wrestler so far is The Pope D'Angelo Dinero he reminds me of The Rock a bit.

Kofi Kingston is the best! :biggrin:

When I watched wrestling, my favorites were the Rock & Roll Express, Doom, Steiner Brothers, Ricky "the Dragon" Steamboat, Sting, Muta, and Lex Luger.
The Steiner Brothers were definitely my favorites of the group.
OH, man! And the Road Warriors! Probably my second favorite group.

I don't like TNA. TNA is even more fake than WWE.
Rikishi was dropped for drug charges I believe. The Rock was awesome. I also miss Stone Cold Steve Austin. I remember the time he fully killed Booker T in a grocery store.

I loved this as a kid but grew out of it. But my roots go back to the late 80's. I even watched GLOW. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gorgeous_Ladies_of_Wrestling
I watched this hillbilly kind called Country Moutain Wrestling and something they did in Orlando, Maybe called TNT. I liked a tag team called Thunder and Lightning. WCW had Sting and for whatever reason I think he still tries to wrestle now. Maybe that was just a legends match, But I know Rick Flair is 92 yrs old, I'm glad he finally retired.
Where's the love for the Managers like Jimmy Hart :p

Around the 7:30 mark, the Nature Boy provides one of the funniest moments in WWE history

OT: I sat next to the Nature Boy one time at a sushi bar and dude has the hugest head I've ever seen in real life

TNA was being shown on T.V here. Ended up watching Abyss and Hulk Hogan vs Ric Flair and A.J Styles. It was horrible. Abyss can't wrestle for crap, even Maria (she got released *sadface*) could wrestle better than him. Hell, even the Great Khali could. Hulk and Ric were so old and slow it didn't even look good. Hulk Hogan "tried" to hulk up and looked like a tool. Simply too old. A.J Styles was crap. Entire match was full of fail.
