WWE, ECW (B4 Vince Mcmahon bought it) UFC or Boxing ...

Is there any bad movie people here that like any of those?

If so, Thats great I do too, do you have any favorite wrestlers or fighters? Favorite Match?

My favorite wrestlers- Ultimate Warrior 90's, Undertaker mid 90's, and Hulk Hogan 80's.

My favorite MMA fighters- Frank Shamrock, Lyoto Machida, and Kimbo. (for entertainment only)

My favorite ECW wrestlers- Tazz, Sabu and The Pitbulls. 

My favorite Boxer of all time- I only have one ... Iron Mike Tyson "Kid Dynamite" 80's.

I have some trivia if you think you know your old school WWF, How did Undertaker turn babyface in the 90's? hint - Macho Man" Randy Savage. Thats all I'm saying. Do you have any trivia? Ask away.

Some favorites- Undertaker vs Ultimate Warrior - Rampage 1991.

BTW- Like I said, I like Kimbo for entertainment only and I can't believe Dana White signed him to UFC.

If you know Kimbo I know about this right? LOL.

Well I still watch WWE although I often wonder why. My fave wrestler is C.M. Punk nowadays. Like him even more he's turned into an intense heel. But really I've liked him since around 2004 when he was in ROH. The best wrestling I've seen the last decade has come from ROH and NOAH (JAPAN) most consistently aside from the scattered great match on a WWE PPV.

I prefer wrestling the way it used to be..kayfabe..played a though for real. I grew up loving 80s wrestling...the WWF (Randy Savage and Ricky Steamboat were the best), the NWA (Ric Flair, Road Warriors, Koloffs, Dusty, Midnights, Rock 'n' Rolls), the AWA (Nick Bockwinkel, Rick Martel, Curt Hennig, Larry Zbyszko, Jimmy Garvin), Calgary Stampede (young Owen Hart, Makhan Singh, Cuban Commandos, Great Gama, Dynamite Kid), World Class Freebirds, Von Erichs, Hernandez, Brody), the UWF (Eddie Gilbert, Steve "Dr. Death" Williams, Sting, Terry Taylor, Chris Adams), Canadian International Wrestling (King Tonga, Dino Bravo, Rougeaus, Garvins). Today's wrestling makes me sad it bares so little resemblance to what I grew up with yet I still watch it as every now and then, a few of the competitors still surprise me.

ECW, pre the crap they're panning as it now, was magic in the ring.  Out of all the wrestling matches I went to in my life, the two house shows for them in Worcester, MA go down as my favorite.  Myself, my father and a bunch of my friends went and it was nothing like I had ever seen before.   

ECW however got to the point where it couldn't outshock itself anymore with the violence factor.  Its sad too because they had some damn fine technical wrestlers grace their ring who put out some fine bloodless matches. 

Being an 80s guy, I can spin yarns with you about the promotions back then.  WWF, NWA, WCW, AWA, GLOW, etc.

I was a fan of both wrestling and boxing when I was a kid in the 1970s.

Wrestling:  Some of the big names of that era were: Ivan Putski (my favorite), Chief Jay Strongbow, Sgt. Slaughter, the Golden Terror, Bruno Sammartino, Andre the Giant, the Wolfman, Professor Tanaka, Mr. Fuji, and Killer Kowalski.

Boxing:  I watched a lot of good fights with Ali, Frazier, Foreman, and Spinks.  Boxing was so much better in those days.  Many bouts actually went the distance.

My nephews were really into wrestling a few years ago, so I took them to a couple of events.  Saw guys like the Undertaker and Rey Mysterio.  Ho-hum (yawn).

I watched wrestling up until this last year, when we got rid of cable. I started watching when I was in grad school ('88-'91) because it was the funniest thing on TV. Roddy Piper, Bobby Heenan and Randy Savage would get into some classic battles of wit (though Savage came to the fight only half armed  Twirling).

My favorite wrestlers are Roddy Piper, old-school Undertaker (w/Paul Bearer), Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho. These guys are/were always entertaining to watch.

Taker and Rey Mysterio are actually really decent.  Don't know what show you saw them on, but I've seen them have great matches.

lester1/2jr- I've been watching that too, a match with the late great Curt Hennig aka Mr Perfect.

Derf- Roddy Piper was awesome. I really miss the 80's ... Bobby Heenan, Randy Savage. WWE now, Its just a bunch of pretty boys with tattoos imo. Fact - you cant replicate 80's wrestlers. (never ever)

Burgomaster- Ivan Putski Polish Power. finishing move- Polish hammer! I'm 35 but I remember that, my Grandpop let me watch wrestling when I was really young. Also I have a photo from a signing appearance w/Sgt. Slaughter and Slaughter put a mini (fake) Cobra Clutch on my son. But I think my son was too young to know wth was going on though lol.

The DarkSider- I was at 3 house shows 90's, maaan let me tell you I loved it! ... "violence" was not the word. I remember Buba was fighting with someone in the crowd and started choking him to the ground, police came and everything. (good times)

BTW- the answer to that Undertaker trivia- Undertaker turned babyface because Jake "The Snake" was waiting in the back with a chair ready to hit the late great Miss Elizabeth over the head. Something like this - Macho man opened the back curtin for her and Jake had the chair ready to go ... but wait ... whats this? Undertaker's hand grabbed the chair (stopping the chair). Jake said what are doing man!? Undertaker then gave Jake a bad cold look ... lol (sorry for my bad story tellings), the rest was history.

Edit- The DarkSider Yes!!, I remember G.L.O.W. ... Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling! (good times)

Sad but true.  I started watching it at the ripe old age of 3, back in '87.  Only Kindergarten student to have a Rowdy Roddy Piper lunchbox (I liked the 'heels', I guess.)  But, I gotta say, the WWF did have a great run from '96 or so until around '01.  They still had some older guys involved, like HBK and Undertaker, plus Stone Cold Steve Austin (my all time favorite wrestler), as well as HHH, Rock, Dudley Boyz (followed them in ECW), Edge and Christian and Kurt Angle.

Recently, I did attend a WWE house show.  I finally got to see Tommy Dreamer in action (I was always a ECW fan, but due to age constrictions I couldn't get in at the ECW arena here in Philly, and they went out of business.)  It was an okay show, for a house show.  Cena, Big Show, Christian, Rey Mysterio, CM Punk and Dreamer were pretty good in their matches.

I was a devout WWF/E supporter from 1993-2000.  I loved it, even though looking back on some of the early 90's stuff after they started losing all their all stars was pretty weak.  Some of the people they pushed into main event spotlights back then were pretty questionable.  It wasn't until the late 90's that WWE really took off, but just before they bought WCW it all started going way downhill. 

I still like watching some of the old matches on Youtube, mainly anything with Bret Hart, Yokozuna, or Undertaker.  I also do find the Elimination Chamber matches kinda fun to watch, even if it does feel like it's just a lame excuse to sell toys.

I used to watch Pro Wrestling, but once Hulk Hogan came along in the mid/early-80s, it became very monotonous. I watched a little in the 90's, and promptly quit when Hogan came back on the scene. Once in a while I watch the old AWA matched others spoke of, which were actually AFTER I lost interest.

I watch lots of MMA, I really don't have many favorite fighters, I'm more of a fan of the fight. There are some that I don't care for though, but more for their behavior outside of their fights (I can't stand the Diaz brothers, don't care for Diego Sanchez, liking BJ Penn less and less every day, don't care for Matt Lindland at all). There are also fighters I root against simply because their fans are so annoying (Wand Silva, Fedor, Shogun, Penn). There are also a couple that I don't look forward to watching because their fights are often boring (Machida was for a long time, Tim Sylvia). But, I look forward to anyone that gets in there with the intention of getting it done, way too many of those to list here.


Also, there was a web site I saw several years ago that had a HUGE list of pro wrestlers, whet their real name was, when they died and what they dies of. If anyone knows of a site like this, let me know. I've googled everything I can possibly think of and haven't come up with it. It was very interesting.

Here is a list of Wrestlers who have died and the cause if known
http://www.pwwew.net/people/dead.htm


Of course my favorite wrestler of all time is LORD HUMONGOUS. Lots of people donned the hockey mask over the years as Lord H, most notably Sid Vicious who in the video below fights the "Master of Pain". The two would go on some years later as a tag team called The Skyscrapers, "Master of Pain" becoming Mean Mark Callous. Callous would go on to later fame as The Undertaker.

On a side note former exotic dancer Gorgeous George (Stephanie Bellars) who was Randy Savage's girlfriend/ringside help in the 90s eventually married Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein AKA Paul Caiafa, former guitarist for the Misfits. They have a daughter whose name is, I kid you not, Boriss Von Frankenstein.  Thumbup
