Bruno Sammartino is my first memory of wrestling. I watched as a kid, and I do remember him losing his championship to Ivan Koloff which stunned everyone, and then weeks later Pedro Morales beat Koloff.

First memory. Kevin, Kerry, and David Von Erich vs The Freebird (Michael "P.S." Hayes, Buddy Rogers, and Terry "Bam Bam" Gordy). Back when world class championship wrestling still existed.

Best memories. The whole time ECW existed.

and the Main Event which was a handicap match featuring Hulk Hogan and Ultimate Warrior against Sgt. Slaughter, Col. Mustafa, and General Adnan.

Oh... and who could forget the wedding of Macho Man Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth that was disrupted by Jake The Snake Roberts .... great feud that was.

Plus you had the Bushwhackers, Koko B. Ware, British Bulldog, Big Boss Man, the Mountie, Irwin R. Scheister.... oh and it was Andre The Giant's last ever PPV appearance in his lifetime before he passed away.

Good stuff... brings back great memories.... that pay per view put me over the top as a big wrestling fan as a kid.
We are not huge followers of wrestling, but I used to love to watch in on TV as a kid: I am going back to the days of Gorgeous George and Artintina Rocca, Gino and Leo Garibaldi and Barron Michele Leone.

OMG, someone on here is as old as I am. We used to go to Muscle beach in Santa Monica and watch them workout or strut around. Our high school didn't even have a wrestling team.

Kenny Jay - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


"The Very Capable" Kenny "Sodbuster" Jay was a neighbor and still lives in my hometown and fought the best there ever was to a standstill.
