    Okay, who was the guy that no-one could beat he was about 7 foot tall, brick shithouse (obv) and had a tight blond perm. Mean as fuck looking, around the Nasty Boys era.

    Sounds like Mr Perfect only he wasn't that tall. His perfect plex made him stand tall among the giants though.

    Hush you ponce

    Anyway, he snapped he leg on a live PPV and I've not seen him since. Video of it is available on YouTube.

    Demolition were mentioned on the previous page, weren't they the guys who wore leather S&M gear and painted their faces to look like Kiss?

    Out of an hour show now you get 10 minutes of wrestling and 50 minutes of half naked, oiled men shouting at each other down a microphone.

    Also, speaking of the golden age, I remember getting one of my rich mates to record me wrestlemania off sky.

    The bastard also had a long play video recorder, so when i tried to watch it, I spent an hour and a half watching wrestlers run about like benny hill.

    The Ric Flair face-plant is one one of the funniest things in wrestling.

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    I do think there's a lack of personalities nowadays though. It's quite telling that they've brought back everyone from Hulk Hogan to Shawn Michaels in recent years.

    This is the attitude era when I last watched it.

    Doing some reading looks like it had a lot more competition from WCW around 10 years ago but has none now, so Vince Mcmahon doesn't feel the need to push the show to the extremes like he used to for ratings.

    I'm pretty sure it's dying a slow death as a form of entertainment.

    Now the UFC is providing real combat sports with big personalities to boot, it's time is short.

    My Dad took me and my brothers to see the wrestling in Kings Lynn (Corn Exchange?) just after my birthday in 1979 and I saw Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks on the same bill. I got really upset that they were hurting each other and my Dad told me that they weren't really trying to kill each other and I remember being really shocked that these men got paid to pretend to fight. There was always bluster though. That was the fun. Ritualised combat ftw.

    The American version of it is like many american analogues (amerilogues?) - bolder, fatter and louder. I never really liked it much, too much play, not enough fight. But I know there is a subset of UK males aged 27-33 who fucking loved WWF.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    I find the outfits in MMA and it's various half-bred offspring to be disapointing.

    I watched a seemingly recent match between Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker a few months ago. Well, I watched the whole PPV, but this was all I was interested in, having not watched Wrestling in nearly 15 years. I have to admit, while everything else was rubbish, but I very much enjoyed watching too old men going at it. It was ridiculous and entertaining at the same time. As if Shawn Michaels would normally survive 3 tombstones and 4 chokeslams. Maybe nostalgia had a lot to do with it, but I loved it.

    Wont be bothering with it as a whole though. To state the obvious, it's just after my time really.
