like what other people have said, i grew up/1st started watching wrestling in the AE so that would probs have to be part of why i have voted for that.
plus based on watching wrestling before and after AE, i really do find it the best
Internet - A means of connecting a computer to any other computer anywhere in the world via dedicated routers and servers
[Professional] Wrestling - the occupation of athletes who compete for pay
Community - Society at large
the IWC: A society that connects via computers talking about athletes who wrestle
Obviously, most of the people on this board were either born during the Golden Era, or slightly after it, so it's hard for us to pick that over Attitude because we're bias.
It's funny how the people on this board and the people you see in the comments under Golden Era vids on YouTube are too completely different demographics...those guys aren't even the 'IWC' for the most part. You can learn a lot about wrestling history watching those vids and reading what those older guys have to say about the match, the wrestlers, the culture of the period, etc.

Re: Golden Era vs Attitude Era
I hated "Attitude Era" WWF. I was a WCW guy, if anything. I mean, Stone Cold & The Rock were cool but the rest of the show sucked and the top heel was fucking Vince McMahon. I hated it. I was mostly into ECW at the time, honestly, but I voted for "Golden Era" because even the mid-card was stacked & jacked back then. Rick Rude, Jake Roberts, Randy Savage, Mr. Perfect, Ted DiBiase...it's a no-brainer for me.
When talking about best eras in WWE, I think we should have a poll WITHOUT attitude era or ruthless aggression era, cause those are 2 leaders all the time in polls(attitude era obviously leading of any era).
I think results would actually be surprising/close if we didn't include those 2 eras in polls
I didn't get started until late 1990, so obviously I'll say the AE. I've seen plenty of 80's WWF, but honestly, I think it blows. The only people who were wrestling in the 80's who I found interesting to even the smallest degree were Flair, Savage, Dibiase and to a very small degree, Roberts, everybody else can go piss up a rope. I have absolutely hated Hulk Hogan from literally the moment I saw him, the thought of watching him control an era literally frightens me to no end. I know kids are supposed to love Hogan but he did not work on me at all, I cheered when Taker Tombstoned him, lol.
