PostSubject: Pro Wrestling Topics: UK gets WWE Network October 1st!!!!!!!!   Tue Sep 02, 2014 10:29 am

First please allow Me to commentate on one of My favorite subjects  Smile

Are you a big wrestling fan? If you are discuss all your fond memories and why you are the big wrestling fan you today!

Why I love it: It all began in the late 80s, as a youngster I just loved how big and tall those guys were and the way they acted and looked. I watched WWF and NWA/WCW. I loved Hulk Hogan, the Ultimate Warrior, Macho Man Randy Savage, Ric Flair, Lex Luger, Sting, Sid Viscous and many others, My Grandparents loved it especially My Grandpa. My Mom liked it sometime ago because she digged some of those guys. Hulk Hogan quickly became one of My childhood heroes along with Jesse Ventura. Wrestling was just fun and just plain cool! Wrestling figures was a must for Me even until recently.

A little commentary: I loved the 80s to begin with but the 80s wrestling was just so good. As the 90s came wrestling was really changing with the Monday Night Wars and of course the Attitude era. Loving the 80s so much it was kinda hard to grip the later 90s. After the demise of ECW & WCW I stopped watching it. Come to the late Summer of 2010 I started watching TNA Impact Wrestling then started watching WWE in the Summer of 2011. It was difficult to know and like new guys like John Cena, Randy Orton, CM Punk, The Miz, Daniel Bryan but I was already used to guys like The Undertaker, Kane, HHH, Mark Henry, and The Big Show. Come now in 2012 I like the new guys a lot now and like many of the things that is currenty going on in WWE but sometimes I think back and miss the 80s, early and middle 90s and even the Attitude era. Wrestling is like Life, constantly evolving.

For You to Do: Are you kinda like Me and is old school and like the older wrestling stuff or also like Me and like it all? Do you currently watch WWE or TNA or both today? Tell Me who is your favorite wrestlers and why and what was your favorite matches and so on.  Do you have dream matches that you wish had taken place but never did? Ask Me questions of who I like and so fourth, lay it all down on Me, I'd love and appreciate thatWink

Here is 15 moments of things I'm currently thinkin' aboutHappy

The Event that got Me hooked on Wrestling!



Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior





Andre the Giant




The Times of Ric Flair








Abdullah the Butcher and Terry Funk






Yokozuna

I am a huge Corey Graves fan, I cannot wait till he makes it to the WWE from NXT, he would add so much to the current roster and bring a new and much needed level for entertainment!

The WWE, or as it was years ago the WWF !, good family entertainment cheers . It has of course changed over the years. I remember as a kid when the Saturday morning wrestling would come on tv, with Big Daddy and the like ! lol! , he never lost a fight, that I can remember Suspect Rolling Eyes ! Then occasionally they would highlight a match or two from the WWF as it was then.
Usually it was always the Hart foundation against the British Bulldogs ! it was always very good. Later as I got older and sky sports first pop up, the main events were broadcast ! Even now I still look forward to watching Wrestlemania with my son, but my favourite event is still the royal rumble Very Happy
It is a shame that all the old faces that I remember have nearly all but retired now, but the new generation seem to hold their own. I must admit I have not seen a show now for a few years (apart from aforementioned wrestlemania and Rumble), but you are always entertained with their shows.
The dark side of it of course is the amount of stars that have died recently, as good as the WWE is, tragedy does seem to plague them Shocked Sad .

I remember this stuff a lot Dal and it is such a shame that many great wrestlers have passed on, I will miss the Ultimate Warrior so much:( I just hope that Jake the Snake Roberts is going to recover fine. I love the Royal Rumble too as well as the Survivors Series and King of the King!

Well Dal, you can re-see ALL of your favorite WWE, WCW & ECW events thru the WWE Network in October! Just sign up, it is only $9.99 in the US a month and will be available in the UK October 1st! It it truly a great way to watch the legendary stuff and even the recent events AT ANY TIME you want INCLUDING ALL Royal Rumble events!! If you got questions, I am the one to ask dude:)

Believe Me Dal, WWE Network is totally worth it! Yeah, Davey Boy was great, My favorite time of his was in 95 - 96, I feel he was great as a heel or bad guy.

An intresting post, Brandon Smile

For me, it was the 'Undertaker' he was a fave of mine, this was back in the late 1980's, early 90's. I remember buying a Nintendo (SNES) game with him in it, my nephews at the time loved all that U.S wrestling, they had the WWF figures and ring for one Christmas. I like it, the over acting and stuff is hilarious!

I'm also a big fan of NASCAR and INDYCAR, especially the 'Daytona 500' & 'Indy-500' races. I also like the short Bristol and 'Dover - (Monster Mile) race tracks'.
I haven't been following it recently though bounce I recreate some of those races on my 8 lane analogue slotcar track Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy The MAM figures are ideal for WWF kit bashes and customs Wink bounce

I'm now trying to find out where I stored my early 1990's NASCAR videos that I recorded bounce

Thanks Clivvers Smile YES, The Undertaker was truly great back then and that game you were talking about was WWF Super Wrestlemania, a classic indeed! Those WWF figures were great too!

One thing that I must mention here which is a very important note of Mine: Back in the blossoming age of the Internet way back in the 90s, I was a wrestling reporter for many web pages that no longer exist and I had retired in the early 2000s. It was a fun job but man it could be very hectic and frustrating and I am glad that I retired from it. I just wanted to share that with you guys Smile

Nice one, Brandon! bounce

I bet it was hard work gathering all the latest news and editing the data for those websites.

At the moment I'm working on a project which is taking longer than I anticipated. I've been using my CAD program day and night for the last 3 weeks. My cameras have been out on photo-shoots for 5 full days over the last 4 weeks! I've taken hundreds of pictures, each photo file is 40-45 megabytes in size, and out of all those photos, only about 50 good ones will be used Embarassed

I remember one time many years ago some friends and I went to see wrestling just shortly after the Road Warriors first started wrestling... Around 1983...

I had a friend who was 6ft 5 inches tall and bulky...
Anyhow the Road Warriors knocked a sign out of his wifes hands when they came down to the ring.
After the match my friend held that same sign and told the Road Warriors to knock it out of his hands.
Well a struggle broke out and my friend actually punched one of the Road Warriors!
Big Mistake! lol... I think it was Animal but Animal knocked some of my friends teeth out...lol
My friend said it was like hitting a brick wall when he hit Animal...
I'll never forget that...

Anybody see Hell in the Cell on the Network? IMO it was a so-so PPV. The Ambrose-Rollins match made up for the whole show though, possibly the match of the year IMO!
