LOL! If you're not supposed to know about them, why do you pretend to know them?
And it is not like anyone stopped you from doing research by watching vids or reading legit text before posting here. And i um 21, but know much more about this business than you





Another lie. I always show proofs and links. However, it is not my fault that you did not read certain biographies / autobiographies which i mention many times. And not my fault that you did not watch the videos / documentaries that i mention as my proofs




i say Rock > Austin
Don't agree? It doesnt matter whether you agree or not!
1.Did you know Ric was one of the all time greats when you watched him in 2001 as Raw GM or something like that?

Don't tell me for a Rock fan,as a 12 year old fan you knew this senile old man was a great wrestler 25 years back.

2.You show proof?
Oh!Please.

I put up links which you conviently don't bother to see and your friend has an excuse for everything.No one has questioned me for my proof since I already I put up legit links.

While you quote some wrestler and have other users asking you where's the proof.You quote some random autobiography or DVD without giving the links.

I honestly would pick Lou Thesz. I go with Lou Thesz simple because of everything new he contributed to wrestling, including moves/styles and others. Not to mention his 10 years total reigns of NWA championship.(3 time) I have not got a large amount of knowledge for this timeframe, however he would be my pick.

Thanks for posting the info about yourself OP I now understand your point of view and your background.

Just for your information the "Golden Age" I repeat, was not in your lifetime. I totally 100%respect the fact that you are interested in the history of wrestling. But you need to understand that the Golden Age was the age when television was invented and became the primary broadcasting vehicle for the sport 1950's-1960's.

You would do well, like BC Hunk suggested to look into Dave Meltzer's site. I think you would really enjoy it. Although I will say to BC Hunk I am not a fan of your demeaning posts.

I am reading lots of wrestling articles about wrestling recently

Golden Age-1950's
Golden Era-1980's

I meant Golden Era but typed Age instead

But seeing how so many people thought my question referred to wrestling before 1984,I don't think it is a problem here
