Re: Golden Era vs Attitude Era, Which do you prefer?
Attitude all the way. I hate the Golden Era, not a fan of the style of characters they had back then, and even as a kid I hated Hulk Hogan, so to have him in control of an era pissed me off. Never understood why a single person would like him, I was an Undertaker guy. Now I started in late 1990, so I'll freely admit I didn't live through the Golden Era at its peak but still, looking back on it I've always hated it.

We can't believe that someone with your skin color has the level of education that you have, so your gimmick is just gonna be that we put you on tv and brag that you went to school. Cause that's basically the gimmick that they gave him, how much more racist could his gimmick have been? Am I missing something here? What was the reason that the people were supposed to get behind him, other than the company just saying "phht, well, he's...in school".
