Default How many of you watched Wrestling prior to the WWE era?

I see a lot of people with join dates of like 2010 etc saying Cena is one of the G.O.A.T, which nobody who watched wrestling prior to the PG era would think. Also just a massive lack of historical knowledge, hatred of any attitude era guys who appear etc.

It's pretty easy to tell to be honest, so don't bother lying.

Haha, I don't think I've ever heard anyone say Cena is the Greatest of All Time. Perhaps, rightfully, most popular at certain times than anyone but the big 4, but never anybody seriously saying the GOAT. Also, if they did and weren't trolls, I would accept it. Nothing wrong with liking John Cena if you're a wrestling fan. He's a wrestler. Just because the consensus is that he's stale doesn't mean it should define opinion.

Me personally, as I'm only 25 I can't say I watched in the 80s but I have older brothers who used to watch video tapes from then, such as early Wrestlemanias. We're English so perhaps in that time the WWF wasn't as easily accessible for kids, but my earliest memories are sitting watching those tapes probably the early 90s. I'd say by the time I was 5 I had seen at least a few PPVs, then by the time I was 10 I had seen the first 9 WM and most of the other big 4 shows that had been upto that point.

By the time I was 15 though, in 2002, I had watched every WWF PPV. Even now, I can't say I've watched anything earlier than perhaps the first Starrcade and matches on Youtube/in sets etc.

I don't think age really matters with what we have now, everything is at their fingertips and just because they didn't live through it, doesn't mean a 15 year old is lying when they say they've seen it. It's impossible to have been watching something that occurred at least 10 years or so before you were born, but wrestling is different; I would say the majority of wrestling fans have seen at least every WM. Don't really get that anywhere else.

I can't click on one of your options as I began watching in the early 90s, watching the older stuff as well as the current article.

i stopped from 06 onwards cus i felt it was getting boring+had no free time whatsoever to, well, do anything besides school and work but started watching again last year when i had more time to do stuff. right around the time when the rock was facing cena for the first time.

I got into wrestling in the very late 90's watching WCW. Then I slowly moved over to WWF and was watching that full time by mid-2000.

So far 100% of voters have watched since at least the start of the attitude era (1997)

Lets say they must have been what... 8 years old minimum to be watching a show like that.

So that means 100% of voters must be at least 24 years old, interesting.....

Or, were little brothers of people who watched them so started younger. I have cousins who were born in 1995 that I can specifically remember as Stone Cold/AE fans.

And I can't really say At least the Attitude Era, because that would like start watching in 2003 and saying AT Least the PG era. I was watching in 1991, and was watching WM 5/6 as well as the shows from before then. I can happily say I was a fan before the AE, and before 1997 I had seen at least 90% of the big PPVs WWF had put on as well as a lot of WCW/ECW, UK wrestling and various others, and read magazines for at least 5 years and I was 10. With what is accessible now, I don't think we can ever look at people of a certain age anymore and treat them differently for being younger as they've possibly seen more than we have.
