    WWE/WWF

    Notice I'm putting this in the 'General Chatter' forum rather then the 'Other Sport' section, because I know some smart ass will come on and say "Its all fake..."

    But I see 'The Rock' has returned to WWE this week.

    I haven't watched it in years but I grew up watching WWE/WWF and 'The Rock' was certainly one of my favourites.

    I MIGHT be tempted to give it another go and see how my impression of it's all changed over the years.

    Any closet WWE fans out there?

    I must admit that a good few years back, my two lads watched it. They liked Brett "the hitman" Hart, The Ultimate Warrior, and of course "The Undertaker"

    Though I never owned up to it, I did like "Doink the Clown"

    And you two were ELECTED moderators?!

    Shame on you.

    As The Rock would say - 'I will lay the smack down on your roody poo candy ass.' Whatever that means.

    The Rock
    The Undertaker
    Stone Cold Steve Austin

    They were my favourite three. I remember watching a match as a kid when The Undertaker beat Hulk Hogan who everyone absolutely loved. There were kids crying in the audience and you could hear a pin drop.

    I don't really want to bring up this phrase so soon after the demise of a certain sub-forum... but 'those were the days'

    I liked the Ultimate Warrior when I was younger, as well as The Undertaker. Andre the Giant and Earthquake were great bad guys, as well as Kane. I am sure it is a great night out but the idea of PPV for wrestling is just bizarre.

    Ted Dibiase the Million Dollar Man
    Brutus the barber Beefcake

    Jake the Snake Roberts

    The Hart Foundation
    Mankind

    I would have thought you, like me, would have been more of a Mick McManus and Jackie Pallo man.

    Mountie? Defo before my time. I know most of the wrestlers mentioned above from watching old cassette videos borrowed off various mates as i was growing up. A few of them were still wrestling when i first got in to it but most of them were done, dusted and knackered I'm afraid! I guess my 'era' included the rock, stone cold, kurt angle, rikishi, eddie guerrerro, chris jericho, triple h, chris benoit, big show...

    Yes. Then there was Kendo Nagasaki, who I think came from Kingswinford or somewhere similar, and Bert Royle and Vic Faulkner who fought as The Royals tag team.

    I wouldn't mess with him. Fake or not! By all accounts, I remember him on Jonathan Ross a year or two ago when he'd just hit hollywood and he came across as an extremely polite, well mannered and amusing bloke. Which can't be said for most Americans...

    I've been instructed to respond thus "YES...BECAUSE STONE COLD SAID SO!"

    Was it the British Bulldog who sadly passed away following an accident in the ring? They really do push their bodies to the extreme.

    Can't believe noone has mention Hulk Hogan or The Bushwakers. I was about 15 when I used to watch it.

    Frank/Doog, Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks? I used to watch them with my gran when I was about 7.

    The old grey matter has just clicked into gear. Anyone remember "The Berserker".. Totally insane, but Mrs Frank and I laughed at his antics.

    Owen Hart - he fell from the rafters of the stadium. Bulldog died of an heart attack (even god uses irony).

    Loads of them are dead.

    Eddie Guerrerro.
    Chris Benoit shot all his family and then himself.

    I'm sure plenty of the older guys mentioned above have passed away too.

    I used to love it, reenacting all the moves at school the morning after. I remember that pre internet the big events like Royal Rumble used to be shown a couple of days after on Sky (prob just when it launched).

    But if you wanted to know the results there was premium number that you could ring. Racked up a few pennies on my parents bill. They must have thought I had a 0898 chatline addiction!

    Like Jinky haven't really watched it for years although I'm kept up to date with goings on from younger relatives.

    Like I said on the Autograph thread met all the mid 90s stars in Birmingham.

    Bizarrely as well through a friend of a relative of Codsall boy Darren Matthews (William Regal) I got to meet Stone Cold Steve Austin who accompanied Darren on a flying visit to the area.

    My youngest will be attending his 12th consecutive Wrestlemania this year!

    Personally I preferred ECW.

    Forget Stone Cold and his faux Bud Lite beer spraying. The Sandman wrestled with a few cans in his tracksuit pants.

    I've seen Chris Jericho fronting his band 'Fozzy'.

    As some have posted a fair few wrestlers have passed away,

    The Von Erich (some of you will probably remember 'The Texas Tornado') and Hart families suffering the worst, even Brett Hart had a serious stroke.

    There are a lot of familiar names in there. I didn't realise 'Test' had died!

    Years of steroid abuse will do that to you...
