Golden Era vs Attitude Era

Here it is. Which era was better? I'm more of an Attitude Era fan, because I wasn't aruong during the Golden Era, 80's Boom. So, what do you think?

Same here. I wasn't around for the Golden Era either and I love the Attitude Era, but from what I have seen of the Golden Era on youtube and on DVDs I really enjoy it. Not as much as the Attitude, but still good.

Re: Golden Era vs Attitude Era

Again I lived through Attitude so im probably biased and I would say that it was better than the Golden Era but I have gone back and watched some stuff, their's no question the Golden Era was very good but It reminds me of what WWE is trying to recreate today but in a very poor fashion in all honesty.

I've never really had any lingering appeal for the Hulkster and he really did dominate the industry back then for so many years but atleast back then you had other genuine megastars in the likes of Randy Savage, Roddy Piper, Mr T, Ultimate Warrior, Andre the Giant and so on.

The thing that appeals to me about the Attitude Era looking back is, it was never truly dominated by one person for anywhere near as other era's have. people point at 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin, yes he dominated 1998 and I'd say part of 1997 and 1999 combined make him the stand out guy as he was the main for that time period but then you look at it and its fair to say Shawn Michaels and Undertaker carried the ball for the early part of it, then 1999 and beyond you could say Austin along Mankind and The Rock and Undertaker carried it and 2000 it was The Rock and Triple H who took the ball and and then Stone Cold has his 'swanswong' heel run in 2001.

So all in all I just loved the variety of the Attitude Era and the fact I actually liked nearly everyone who they put in those spots, from The Rock and Stone Cold, to Kurt Angle and Jericho.

exactly.

everyone will come in and vote for the era that they grew up in, the one that it was still real to them throughout and marked out for. No era is perfect and everyone has a bias for theirs.

Re: Golden Era vs Attitude Era

I was a kid during the Golden Era and a teenager during the Attitude Era and I like the Attitude Era better though I like the Golden Era as well. I loved Hogan and Piper and Savage and Flair and Sting and the different territories. It was an awesome time to be a wrestling fan, but the Attitude Era was unique and kind of the peak of the whole industry that had been building up since the Rock N' Wrestling thing started.

The variety of wrestling styles you saw during the Attitude Era was a lot more diverse than the Golden Era and that's one of my reason for liking it more. The enthusiasm from the fans was off the charts and the rebellious and unpredictable nature made it the best, IMO. Love 'em both but I'm going with the AE.

Re: Golden Era vs Attitude Era

I grew up with the attitude era but after watching both eras on tape...I gotta say I like the golden era better. I just loved the over the top characters, the main events felt really special. No stupid McMahons covering up the tv or over the top gimmicks/endings...just the way wrestling should be.




****edit**** by over the top gimmicks I meant the cheesy Jerry Springer like characters: Val, Mr ass,Mark Henry etc...I liked the cartoonish 80s characters

Re: Golden Era vs Attitude Era

Golden Era, all the way. What got me into wrestling as a very young age. That being said, I still loved / love the Attitude Era.

Re: Golden Era vs Attitude Era

Was a little kid during the ending of the Golden Era(87-91) and I didnt really watch much of the actual events outside of the Wrestlemanias, but I loved what I saw of The Golden Era then with Savage, Piper, and Dibiase. Hogan was also a semi-favorite, but I have to go with Attitude Era man... Austin, Rock, Foley, HHH, edgy storylines, amazing promos, weekly programming(RAW and SD), the biggest boom in the business? I'll go with the AE, but The Golden Era and AE are two of the greatest eras of all time.
