    I've been watching wrestling off and on since 1984. Back in the day, wrestling was real.

    My all-time favorite is Randy "Macho Man" Savage. My favorite wrestling personality is Bobby Heenan.

    Shawn Michaels became my favorite when Randy retired.

    The only wrestler I truly disliked was Brett Hart. There was just something about him that was like fingernails on the chalkboard.

    Right now, I don't really have any favorites. I'm glad that the Undertaker is coming back but I am saddened that Booker is leaving.

    Oh yeah. I forgot about him. I never really liked him as a wrestler but I loved his "Piper's Pit" segment where he got everyone pissed off. THAT was classic WWF!

    I always liked Jake the Snake Roberts and Hulk Hogan. I must admit though that I always liked cheering for The Big Boss Man :D

    Jake was cool but I never got into Hulk Hogan. He was too sugar sweet. BBM had a number of great shows.

    Ted DiBiase was one of the better wrestlers back then. I liked how he'd kick your ass and then shove a $100 bill in your mouth!

    Ack!

    Stone Cold Steve Austin hands down. Shawn Michaels is second.

    I wonder if he will come back? There have been rumors about it for some time now.

    I remember when Steve was in WCW and sucked. It was quite a re-invention of himself when he jumped to WWF.

    I just remembered my favorite wrestling match.

    Big Bad Mama (of G.L.O.W.) versus Al Bundy. That scene where he is on his back in the middle of the ring and and is trying to run away is PRICELESS! :D

    Hacksaw Jim Duggan was also pretty cool, in my book :D

    Aww... this thread brings back memories of my childhood in the 80s and early 90s :p

    Dusty Rhodes and his bionic elbow were king when I was a kid... but I'd have to say Sting was my favorite in the 80's before his 'identity crisis'.:p
    Now it's all about Big Sexy.:cool:

    Dusty was okay, I never really got into him but I could see his charisma... now his son... Golddust... wow. That was a strange character.

    I used to watch wrestling on a Saturday afternoon with my dad. Great fun. As well as Kendo I particularly remember Mick McManus.
