I loved it! From about 1987 to 1996 or 98. That was my wrestling time.
-As a kid (about 10 years old), I remember watching UWF, WWF (and sometimes glow wrestling), on this little 15 or 18 inch tv we had. Might have been 20 inches, but very small today. You didn't need much though to be happy with wrestling as a kid.
Loved all the stars. Did anyone pretend to use wrestling moves on their GI Joe's as a kid?
Some of my favorites as a kid,
Big Bubba Rogers
Steve Dr Death Williams.
All the WWF guys...Hogan, Macho, Ricky Steamboat. Loved all the tag teams. Killer Bees? Demolition? The WWF had an incredible tag team roster from about 1986/87 to the early 90's.
Hart Foundation. Islanders? British Bulldogs. I loved the managers like Mr Fuji.
-Lost some interest in the early 90's.
Didn't see much of Shawn Michaels, Yokozuna, early Razor Ramon or Diesel.
-I think it started going downhill in about 95.
The belts got diluted.
Turning it into entertainment, not sport.
Plots got stupid! Etc.

Under appreciated for his revolutionary scientific technique, Andy Kaufman was the undisputed inter-gender champion and could have seriously challenged the top male wrestlers if not for suffering a serious neck injury at the hands of the treacherous Jerry Lawler, but not before first man-handling Lawler in their first match-up.
iF the promoters would have cooperated with each other instead of bickering and looking out for their own interest things w ould have been different. Plus Mcmahon should not have been so bloodthirsty and predatory. He tried to play the victim when wcw started getting big but he was doing the same thing 10 years earlier.
Watching Raw's 1000th show,great show but i'm surprised not a mention of Hulk Hogan, in my opinion a wrestler who was a major player in the rise of WWF/WWE.
I never did hear the story on why the Hulkster is never spoken about and is basically ostracized from any historical significance in the WWE.
