I was a child of the Hulk Hogan era then stopped watching, came back during the attitude era then took a break until a few months ago when a girl I was seeing got me back into it. Super excited to see the Rock back on, also hoping I can go to Wrestlemania this year. It would be my first live event since Royal Rumble 2000.

Finally The Rock has come to Ebeans.

Been waiting for this thread to pop up for a few years but didn't dare make it myself through fear of ridicule.

Travelling from the UK to NY in April for my first Wrestlemania. Can't wait.

I haven't really kept up with it in years, but I used to be a big fan. I grew out of it i guess, stopped watching it right around when John Cena first started. you know, before he became a gangsta. lol. My favorites always were the hardy boyz. I loved the TLC matches.

The first 2 TLC matches are amongst my favourite of all time. TLC II especially. Wrestlemania X7 was just incredible throughout.

Yeah, I stopped for a while after the attitude era ended. Picked it back up when CM Punk came in. John Cena's still pissing me off every week though :x

I've only been to one live wwe event, and that was Vengeance in 2002. I got to see hulk hogan, the rock, undertaker, Jeff hardy, Kurt angle, rvd, lesnar, and all of my favorites that night. I've never needed to go to another event. Haha

I was into WWF/WCW in the mid-late 90s. The one event I attended was In Baltimore and featured The Undertaker vs Mankind. Not sure why I got into it or out of it, just a passing thing I guess.

I was way into it as a pre-teen - Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka was my boy...the Iron Sheik...Hulkamania was running wild brother!

But yeah, if you're into this as an adult, I gotta say, you are right to be kind of ashamed of it. :D :P

Huge Superfly Snuka fan as a kid growing up in the 80's..I remember those classic battles w/ Don Muraco & Rowdy Roddy Piper :notworthy:
I even remember when Snuka was a bad guy and fighting Bob Backlund :shock:

I used to follow in the 90's a bit. Went to Backlash in KC where Owen Hart fell from the rafters and died.
