Wrestling thread

Post by Dunderhead99 on February 29th 2016, 12:44 am

I have been a wrestling fan all my life and still love to talk about old superstars of the sport as well as the newer ones. Who are some of your favorites? Any favorite matches? Favorite tag team duo?

I'm a Hulkamania guy myself and also love Macho Man, Mankind, Undertaker, Andre the Giant and Hillbilly Jim. And the old Four Horsemen of the NWA.

I quit watching wrasslin' in 1999 because it turned to garbage, like a fucking soap opera. Everything was becoming way too predictable and and got to be pretty ridiculous. But I will always love wrasslin' from when I was a kid.

I started off watching WWF and then NWA/WCW (it was NWA when I started watching and then later became WCW. I liked NWA/WCW better because it wasn't as popular and I liked the wrestlers more and the announcers. I also used to watch WCCW every day after school at my grandma's house. I remember watching the Von Erich family, Sgt. Slaughter and a whole bunch of others in that league. I also watched AWA, which was founded by the great Verne Gagne.

OHHH HEEEEEEEELLLLL NOOOOO!!!!!!

Haha. I never liked Hulkster. Always thought he was a fake. Which, of course, he was/is.

Ultimate Warrior defeating Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania 6 for the World Heavyweight title AND Intercontinental title was my favorite match of all time. I'm trying to find a video of it on youtube. Can't find the entire match, but here is part of it...

I remember that match clearly. That was a good one. That was when wrestling was all about wrestling and not the drama. Yes I do know it's fake lol.

Those were the days! I was a huge wrasslin' fan back then. Lost interest in 1999 when it became a damn soap opera.

I go way back to wrestling 67 -68 ? the present day sport sort of got its start in St Joe MO and KC but was not much of a fan from mid eightys on
Can I get a shout out on the Macho Man Randy Savage his post interviews were killer , others I liked Sergeant Slaughter , George the Animal steel, who was the guy that took folding chair beatings to the head and Chest for real ?
From when I was a kid in the 60's watching on NBC 11pm Sat and rerund 2pm Sun they were Bob Giegel ,Bulldog Bob Brown, Handsome Harley Race ,Rick Flair
I wrestled Handsome Harley Race once.. ha ha

He was very popular for a time

Love this thread! Don't go messin' with a country boy a country boy a country boy.

I'm a Macho Man guy myself but I also liked the Warrior and Sting. Mick Foley and all of his different characters were cool.
