I’ve not watched wrestling since around 1998.. Got into it in the 80’s.. Went to a wrestlemania in Toronto in like 90 or 91…

Who’s your fave ?

Obviously for me it’s Ravishing Rick Rude….

I was big into wrestling with my late older brother in the 1990s. I think I stopped watching it around 1998 as well. Got into MMA instead.

I loved Shawn Michaels.

The Legion of Doom/Road Warriors was the greatest tag team duo ever.

Also, the coolest costumes.
Money Incorporated begs to differ.

Actually, it is amazing how unstable the lineups were in the early-90s.

The contracts those guys signed were often short so dudes would just disappear.

Like RW did right after losing the title to MI. Which is the reason the lost the title.

For those of you who loved Attitude Era WWf, I highly recommend you check out Lucha Underground, which is free on Tubi.


It was produced by Robert Rodriguez and all of the backstage stuff is shot like one of his films rather than as live interviews. It reminds me a hell of a lot of the Attitude Era mixed with some dashes of ECW. There's crazy nonsense, hardcore matches, blood, sex, and just a wonderful sense of insanity that is mostly missing from the modern WWE product. A lot of the guys from the show are either in WWE or AEW now, and older guys like Chavo Guerrero and Rey Mysterio pop up as well.

Shit like this:

Lucha Underground >>>>>>>AEW

All time favorite: HBK. Incredible worker. Great mic skills. Excellent heel because he was a junkie ass hole.

2nd stint match quality was routinely an A+. Lots of what ifs had he not gotten hurt.

Alberto Del Rio?

Yup. And John Morrison, who I think is back in WWE right now, although I haven't really watched any wrestling the past year or two outside of NXT Takeovers and a couple of WWE's big shows. I caught a few AEW PPVs too but it's tough for me to get into wrestling without crowds. Maybe now that they're coming back it'll be more palatable for me.

20 years as an active duo trumps a tag team that lasted a year. I barely remember IRS, Dibiase was the only one that had staying power.

80’s was Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat & Mr. Perfect for me.
The Attitude Era was incredible as well.
I was a huge Al Snow fan, as well as Edge and the Hardy Boys.

I think I'd probably take the Dudley Boyz as my favorite tag team ever. They've got the longevity and were part of some of the most insane tag team matches of all time in WWF.

And they have the best tag team finisher ever...
