Wrestling was magical when you were a kid, right? Post some of your fondest memories of when you were a kid.

I just remembered how I used to sit at my friends computer screen and yell out caw attributes so he would be able to make someone that had just debuted on TV in Smackdown! Shut Your Mouth.

Had the walmart WWF championship belt but then I intentionally cracked it and put duct tape on random spots to make it the Hardcore title.

IMO the Hardcore title was more popular than the main title

I used to run my own wrestling league using my WWF action figures and my Marvel action figures and would write down the results of each show on pieces of paper while I watched WWF or WCW on TV. Good times.

Same started my freshman year of HS in late 2012 right when the shield debuted. On one hand it sucks I missed out on a lot of shit in my youth but on the other hand the amount of content available kind of counters it.

Same, though I started about 8 months after you; I came in right after Summerslam so I watched that show for context and so of course between that the following month or two of TV I loved Bryan, The Shield, and the Rhodes Bros.

I remember rushing home from a weekend-long school band trip to catch Mania XXX in the Tubes (I had discovered /wooo/ around 3-4 months after I started watching).

The 24/7 rules made it the most exciting since literally anyone could go and beat Crash Holly for the title, including some kid watching it

I thought that they actually sold the Hardcore title though? Like... you could have bought it, I think

I broke a kid's arm with a Rock Bottom when we were 10 year old yard tards in 99. Deserved it though, his mom forced us to invite him to stuff and he was basically a real life Cartman. Think he's extremely obese now.

I don't remember there being a toy replica of the Hardcore title when I was a kid, but apparently they sold one at some point.

As much as I loved the Hardcore title as a kid, all of the replicas looked pretty bad.

As a jimmy i couldnt f'ing stand the 1-2-3 kid. I thought it was the dumbest name ever and how he beat razor ramon in his first match. I was so mad that razor had to waste time fighting him in that baby carriage match instead of being world champ that i continued to hate him most of his career. Im pretty sure "Xpac" heat was derived from jimmys who lived through the new generation era

The earliest PPV I recall was WrestleMania IV, needless to say I became a huge Macho Man mark. All of my friends were Hulkamaniacs but I always insisted that Savage was the best. I remember being heartbroken when he turned heel but I blamed Hogan for the longest time and was the only little jimmy rooting for Savage at our WrestleMania V sleepover. Luckily, I had a new favorite in the Ultimate Warrior by then...WrestleMania VI was a dream come true.

WrestleMania VII was my first live experiance, my Dad told me we were going long in advance...before the Rumble had even taken place. I was beyond excited, couldn't wait to see my favorite wrestler defend his belt...only for my previous favorite wrestler to screw him out of it at the Rumble. Savage had betrayed me again and now my boy The Ultimate Warrior was a defeated man. WrestleMania VII was bittersweet, I was on pins and needles for what I felt was the main event in Savage vs Warrior. Hogan vs Slaughter was an afterthought, my Dad told me years later that I had asked to leave after Savage "retired" but we stayed. Got to meet Andre the Giant that day...or at least I got to meet his knee. Pretty sure the rest of him was up there somewhere but my head couldn't crank back high enough to see him.

I remember having a ton of the little hard plastic WWF figures with the gimmick "action features." I had broken the ring early on and my parents refused to buy me another (I guess it was punishment or something), so most of my matches were street fights or no-rope matches. I came up with a number of gimmick matches and I was pretty impressed with my ideas. My favorite was the "king of the mountain" match...which was basically just a match on my couch and the floor in front of it. Started as a battle royal on the couch and at any point a wrestler could be tossed to the floor in a spot that I felt was pretty impressive. Once on the ground they could brawl with others (carpet was hardcore rules) and ascend to the cushion if they dared. Only way to win was to hold the cushion alone for 5 minutes. I was so proud of this match that I remember writing out the rules with some helpful diagrams (including Polaroids of my figures in action) and sent it to The WWF. Never occurred to me that this match would probably kill a handful of wrestlers, considering the drop was close to double Mick's infamous HIAC spot years later.

Also, I remember having a trampoline fighting league in our suburbia territory. 3 friends had trampolines and we "toured" depending on who's house we were staying at for the weekend. We also had the dreaded pool matches and the always injury inducing literal in-your-house events. Even once convinced them to have a king of the mountain match on a rather steep dirt hill...turned into a real fight between two of our friends when one shoved mud into the mouth of the other. Oh well, my figures had never resorted to such cheap tactics.

We discovered ECW just in time to have rose bush trampoline matches...until one of the mom's banned us after destroying her aforementioned rose bushes. Still shocked to this day that nobody died in all of our stupid shit...thank god we couldn't figure out where to buy barb wire.

I remember how The Rock always lost against Chris Benoit, again and again, and I was getting really upset.

Also this one time Shane McMahon had to fight the Rock in a steel cage and I thought its unfair for Shane.

Also I remember how Triple H hit Rock with a sledge hammer and "broke his ribs", but Rocky kept fighting. And how utterly humiliating it was when they grabbed Rock and Stephanie slapped him.

Yeah I was (and still am) a Rock mark.

I got in to wrestling in the summer of 1999 and the first show I saw was Summerslam with Austin/HHH/Mankind for the title with Ventura as special guest referee. I was 10 at the time. I started watching because all kids would talk about in school was Stone Cold Steve Austin, so naturally I wanted to see what he was like. Watching the show I was convinced that Austin would win and was devastated when Mankind won until I realised the crowd was cheering so I said to my sister, "he must be ok then." Then that bastard man HHH crippled Austin with a steel chair.

I remember marking out for the Big Show at Survivor Series that year, when he won the title. I didn't even care about Big Show before that. It was literally only because he had won the title. Also I remember being extremely amused by the Big Bossman because I'm from Liverpool and the word 'boss' is an equivalent to 'awesome' so Big Boss Man.

When Smackdown 2 came out on playstation, me and my friend would binge the fuck out of it. The Invasion was on and Kronik had just turned up, who my friend thought were the coolest thing going. He created them on his roster but misspelt their names as 'Brain' Adams and 'Brain' Clarke. Which you would forgive a 12 year old for doing, only his dad's name was Brian as well.

It all began with recorded tapes of Saturday Night Main Event. Metal TV trays that featured Hogan, Macho Man, Ultimate Warrior, and the Big Boss Man were routinely brought out to have dinner and watch with my dad and bigger brother.

When the attitude era began, I was still enthralled with Ultimate Warrior pressing dudes over his head and feeling confused and outraged when the fake Hebner counted the pin on Hogan; to which Andre handed the belt to the Million Dollar Man. But when Smackdown! came to UPN and local TV I had to latch onto new characters and situations. The Hardcore division with Crash Holly, Mankind, Al Snow, and Steve Blackman was the best part of the show whenever it came up, yes, even over The Rock and Steve Austin.

Big Boss Man defeating The Mountie from SummerSlam 1991.
I was 7 years old.
I fucking loved Boss Man.
I fucking hated The Mountie.
That match was such a fucking rollercoaster of emotion for me as a little Jimmy.
Boss Man fucking won.
They kept cutting back to Mountie throughout the night getting in-processed at the jail house.
I seriously fucking hated The Mountie.
Boss Man is love, Boss Man is life.
Honestly one of the best summers of my life, and that entire night was pure magic.

I remember that I wasn't allowed to watch WWF because it was "too bad" so I was a WCW kid. I remember watching Hollywood Hulk Hogan vs Sting in early '98. I was incensed because Sting looked to be winning and I was a Hogan jimmy to the end.

I remember watching more WCW later that year seeing the Hitman apply to Sharpshooter to someone and thinking that I could do that. My sister and I took turns applying the Sharpshooter, but I really found out it could hurt when my sister sat down with it.

I remember my dad being a massive Goldberg mark. I hated him when he beat Hogan for the title. My dad in turn hated Scott Steiner, saying that he was way too vulgar especially with the line "BIG POPPA PUMP HAS GOT YOUR HOOK-UP!"

Good times.

Born in 1987. My dad recorded every PPV on VHS so I watched those over and over. The 1994 Royal Rumble for some reason was my favorite PPV. My dad even had some old tape of Gorgeous George and some other guys from that time period.

I remember the big moments more than I do the matches. Jake the Snake getting Damian to bite Macho Man was absolutely terrifying when I was a kid. So was Rick Martell spraying Jake the Snake with perfume and Jake having to get bandages on his eyes.

I liked Crush and I have no idea why. I was so fucking pissed at Doink the Clown when he brought out his midget clowns to beat Crush. Also when Crush got lefting hanging upside down in MSG.

Finally, I distinctively remember watching the match where 123 Kid beat Razor Ramon and thinking it was the coolest thing ever that a jobber beat a big name guy.
