    Killer B's, Men on a Mission, The Sheepherders (that was their WCW name, forget their WWF name), Demolition, Tony Atlas, Chief J Strongbow, those were the names when I watched. I don't give 2 craps anymore, the storylines back in the days were much better than the crap today.

    agree.....when wcw was a separate company they pushed each other to make each other better. Every week they did what they could to out do each other. I hate that I got my wish for them to combine. That was the worse thing that could have happen to that sport/entertainment.
    With out pure competition there is no story or no match to put on in order to out do the competition.
    So in essence wrestling is dead to me.

    I was a fan of Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and of course THE HULKAMANIA! (sorry caps). Its great looking up the old youtube videos of The Hulkster referring to us as the Hulkamaniacs. I thought it was at its prime when Stone Cold and The Rock were the competing superstars. My roommates still watch it, but its just not the same...

    Wrestling was much more entertaining back in the day.

    It's always been a big fake soap opera but now-a-days it's absolutely ridiculous.
    There aren't the big names like back in the day, the great rivalries, and the simple story lines.

    Now it's way too over the top for me to even give a rat's hind quarter's.

    PLUS....

    Now there's UFC... who wants to watch fake fighting when the real stuff is available?
    I'll watch the NFL if I wanna see some juice monkeys flying around :)

    Which golden age of wrestling. The old time stuff Hogan, macho man, ted dibiase, steamboat, muta, even the cheesy old NWA interview set with the four horsemen.

    Then I thing the era that surpassed old time... Hall, nash hogan with the NWO. the start of the stone cold, rock era concurrent. What good times.

    All in all the old days was much better than today's rotating talent to keep two different brands alive. (ECW, WWE). Miss the old times and hate to see the bigger names passing away or killing themselves.

    i hate WWE. I loved WCW. I watch occasionally now TNA where you can find Hogan, Bischoff, Big Sexy, Scott Hall, Six Pock. They just signed all the old ECW wrestlers for those of you who enjoy tacks being stuck in somebody's face. And they have some great young talent.

    The best era? It may have been before WWWF (that's not a typo) existed, when it was all small promotions. I was a kid then and I believed it was real.

    In Los Angeles we had the WWA with Pedro Morales, Mark Lewan. All before Vince McMahn came around.

    NWA with the Horsemen were great. Flair and Steamboat. Great matches.

    I really liked WCW. NWO 4 Life. They almost took McMahan out.

    I wouldn't give UFC the time of day.

    For those WWF watchers back in the days, do any of you remember the animated show? Don't know what it was called, but I do remember watching that as well. :)

    That wasn't only one of the first WM's, it was also the largest audience to see an indoor sporting event of all time. Not sure if it still holds the record.

    It was WrestleMania III and it was 93,173 people. Yes the record stands today. My mother took my brother and I, truly one of the main highlights of my childhood!
    My brother and I are actually currently re-collecting all of the LJN WWF figures. We've got 2 rings (1 in the box) and 1 cage (in the box) and many loose figures. We are almost ready to start collecting the MOC (Mint On Card) figures once we get a few more loose ones.

    I almost died in a car accident in September. I will be 36 August 8th. After making it through, my brother and I had many long discussions about life. Growing up the WWF was our favorite thing in the world. We are collecting these figures so that we can look at them and reminisce our lives a bit. It's a damn shame that Vince took them in a totally different direction and ruined wrestling. Yes us fans know it was/is fake, but that didn't matter. I have fond memories of the good old days of the WWF and I will always hold them in my heart.

    I sort of got into WCW during the Monday Night Wars, but I had given up on the WWF around 1993 or so and never looked back. I tried to watch it several times but ended up feeling like I wasted my time. For me, about 1984-1993 was the best years of the WWF. I know some will have their own opinions, and that is fine too. I think we can all agree it is pure junk now though, very sad.

    Oh and Joker: It was called Hulk Hogan's Rock N' Wrestling. I watched it faithfully every Saturday morning!
