I use to be a pretty big wrestling fan back in the day and I can't help look back at the past because it was so fun to watch then. I can't get into today's wrestling but anyways what are your favorite moments in wrestling history? here's mine.

  • The start of the nWo in 96 I still have a vivid memory of watching Scott Hall show up on WCW nitro for the first it was one of the biggest jaw dropping moments.
  • Watching ECW for the for the first time and seeing RVD and Sabu as a tag team it was amazing seeing their move set for the first time I never seen wrestling like that I was use to WCW and WWF style at the time so it blew me away when they started using chairs and tables.
  • Austin 3:16 promo at KOTR nothing like it at the time
  • When the New Age Outlaws pushed Foley and Funk off the Raw stage
  • Tyson and Austin on RAW
  • WWF from October 2000 to April of 2001 in 1999 I took a break from wrestling I started watching again back in the fall of 2000 and really got into again goofy heel Kurt Angle was hilarious I love his backstage segments with him and Edge&Christian this time in wrestling I miss so much WWF at the time was on fire. When WCW went out of business and the invasion angle hit for me it was the start of the wrestling downfall stopped watching around 2006.

I haven’t watched wrestling in years. In my youth though , I loved it . My favorite moments would have to be Andre the Giant challenging Hulk Hogan to a match at Wrestlemania and the moment they “met” at the Royal Rumble just prior . I also loved Pipers Pit and how he treated his guests . Loved the NWO and Degeneration X . The Undertaker was cool when first introduced .

Loved how the Hart Foundation stole the belts from the Briitish Bulldogs thanks to Danny Davis ( I think that was the refs name). There are many more fond memories but that’s all I can think of at the moment.

The AWA/WCCW unification match with Kerry Von Erich and Jerry Lawler. The match almost failed to materialize moments before they both came to the ring.

Watching Seth Rollins cash in Money in the Bank at Wrestlemania. Used to watch him wrestle in front of a couple hundred people in community gyms in ROH and it was so cool to see him win the WWE title at Wrestlemania.

Most everything involving Sting and the nWo up until his match against Hollywood Hogan actually started.

There was a great fued for the tag team titles between The Hardyz, The Dudleyz and The Wolves they had a trio of matches.

Hell yeah! 80's was when wrestling was at it's best. WWF (it's real name) was on after Saturday mornings after cartoons. WWf even had a Saturday morning cartoon.

My favorite moment had to be when Bobby Heenan and the islanders dog-napped Matilda from The British Bulldogs. The next week Heenan and the Islanders came out with an invisible dog on a leash.
