I know it's all scripted and is just basically ballet for big guys, but just wondered if there were any WWE fans in the zone? If so, what are your favourite ever wrestlers and/ormatches?  I love the old school WWF, and my favourites have always been the likes of Rowdy Roddy Piper, Million Dollar Man, Ric Flair, Sgt. Slaughter and (zombie) Undertaker.  Right now, it's Santino Marella, 'taker is still there, Edge and Del Rio. 

My favourite match from back in the day was when Undertaker beat Hogan for the title at '91 Survivor Series (always hated Hogan), but the greatest match I've ever seen was a Parking Lot Brawl at the 2008 Bash, it was between JBL and John Cena, which was won by JBL (hahaha).  You?

Btw, out of all the live shows I've ever been to (including Wrestlemania 25 where I finally got to see Piper and Flair), the wrestler with the greatest technical skill I've ever seen was Jimmy Wang Yang lol (although Ricky Steamboat was close).


It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit: how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!

I was keen on WWF when I was growing up in the early 90s.  I remember all the good wrestlers from that era: Razor Ramon, Papa Jungle, The Bushwackers, Gold Dust(more if the late 90s), The Undertaker, Yokosuna, The 1-2-3 Kid, The Macho Man, Jerry The King Lawler, Brett the Hitman Heart. Lex Luger, and more that I cant remember their names for instance this one big fat white guy that had a flame tattoo on his scalp and he would always come out to the ring with his wife or something who looked all hicked up.  

My favorite matches that I remember are the ones where Lex Luger bodyslammed Yokosuna after like 10 wrestlers tried and couldn't.  And My favorite one was when Razor Razon was fighting The 1-2-3 Kid and there was money on the line and Razor Ramon took the money in a case to the ring.  During like the middle of the match, The 1-2-3 kid ran towards the money, snatched it, and ran through the tunnel into a limo that was waiting and I remember Razor Ramon with his face like WTF!!!


Darling, Im not going to be a rockstar, Im going to be a LEGEND!!

been a fan since Wrestlemania 3 aired here in the UK and been to many WWE/WWF events over the years,i was even near ringside at Summerslam 92 at Wembley so my fave match may just have to be The British Bulldog v Bret Hart at that event.
fave wrestlers,Ric Flair in his prime was untouchable esp his matches with Ricky Steamboat in NWA/WCW in the late 80's and Roddy Piper was just superb on the mic.
also went to see an ECW event at Walthamstow in the mid 90's and am pleased to say that Sabu used my xmas tree to whack the Dirtbike Kid over the head to score the pin :-D
John Cena..dont get me started...
although i would love to see Cena v The Rock at some point..

ps,wish they would have a Wrestlemania here in the UK :-[

Favourite match for me was the Hart vs Soul match at Summerslam 1997. If  Bret lost he wouldnt wrestle on American soil again.

Thought the whole America vs Canada thing was really good, especially with Canadian Stampede. The WWE's gone to comical now.

Heels rule!  Almost forgot just how good the Mountie and JBL were as well.

Had the privilege of meeting Ted Dibiase snr at WM25 Fan Axxess and it was a great moment for me, he was actually a really nice guy and didn't play the heel at the meeting- I proudly told him that Money Inc (him and IRS) were the best tag team I ever saw and that nobody played the villain as well as he did.  He actually thanked me for that - Dusty Rhodes was right next to him, and he also signed my hall of fame book.  Great day!

Had a wee tear in my eye afterwards....

if we are talking greatest matches ever then The Undertaker v Shawn Michaels at the last 2 Wrestlemania's have to be high on the list and so should the Hell in the Cell from 98 with Undertaker and Mankind when Mick Foley decided to become a human bump machine..

who could forget them lol?  That 'taker V Foley match was awesome.  In fact, I actually BELIEVED that the Foley fall from the top of the cage wasn't planned, and that he was lying there dead.  His tooth was poking up through his nose and everything.  Yuck.

Oh yeah, and they should have WM here in the UK.  Preferably in Scotland as London always gets the good shows - not fair,

I used to watch WWF a lot when growing up in the '90s...even caught up on all the earliers fights from the 80s on VHS tapes. Undertaker used to be my favorite, and I hated Bret Hart's guts.
So my fav fight would have to be this one-
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2L4V9L8sGg

It was also the fight that actually made me think that things were really going out of hand at WWF...and only fools would still be passionate about it. It was so obviously set up and farcical.
Now I dunno any of the new folks. I do remmeebr a colleague of mine at the office becoming very sad when someone called Eddie Gurrerro died in the ring I think.

Eddie Guerrero passed away in a hotel room from "heart failure".  Which I guess really means it was drugs related.  I remember when he was being inducted into the hall of fame, it was actually quite sad.  Reminds me that I also miss Curt Hennig, aka "Mr. Perfect".

===================================
Owen Hart died in the ring when a stunt went wrong.
Eddie like Brian Pillman died in a hotel room on the day of a PPV.
there isnt much of a long life expectancy involved for pro wrestlers,if you watch The Royal Rumble from 1991 nearly all of them in it are dead now.. :-p [even the ref!]

Haha, don't sound so excited about it.

I have HBK tattooed on my hip. Just to show my loyalty, it precedes my Freddie Mercury tattoo...'cause I'm too broke to get that one just yet. Soon though!

Monday Night Raw is actually coming to my town in less than 24 hours. I think it's the third time in the past three years. I went to one, lucked out and got amazing floor seats cheap. Since my man is gone, I'm not gonna chance it. Plus I just spent $100 for two tickets to see Gary Mullen and The Works.

^the problem with having floor or ringside seats is that you can see close up when the punches dont land and everyone laughs at the wrestlers..
you reading this Jim Duggan and Kamala!? [1993 tour Wembley Arena]

ps,dont call Lex Luger "a knob" when he walks past you at ringside,he doesnt like it.. :-D

Lex Luger is a knob.  Didn't he have a hand in the death of Miss Elizabeth?  Shame, she was so beautiful.  Actually, under all that witchy make-up, Sherry was quite neat, too.  Nobody beats Kelly Kelly though, what a sexy little thing she is!
