Re: Is there a wrestler you liked as a kid but dislike now?

Was a primarily a WCW fan throughout mid-late 90's and a big fan of Nash & Hogan.

Nash - Not as much of a fan these days (although I was jumping around like a kid when he returned at RR 2011) - can see now he can't wrestle, although the man does talk a lot of sense for the most part.

Hogan - got to respect everything he's done for the business, but I just wish he'd get out and stay out of the spotlight now.

For some reason I also liked Buff Bagwell, Tank Abott & Mike Awesome, although I'm not very sure why looking back on it

Mike Awesome was a tremendous wrestler until he went to wcw during it's crazy demise and they gave him that ridiculous gimmick. I was a big fan of nash too and still am (away from the ring) Hogan I never liked and Bagwell.....I'm kinda with you on that one, there was something about him when he turned heel and was in the nwo. As a teen I quite liked his arrogance etc, hated him as a babyface in his earlier years

Nash, simply talks sense. Buff, I have absolutely no idea why I liked him, but as you say just something about him.

Oh, I know now, seen the vast majority of the ECW stuff and wish I could of seen it more frequently live. I just meant, following WCW, I don't get why I liked Mike Awesome given the shitty gimmicks he had there.

Jake Roberts (he was my top fave once), Vince, Jerry Lawler, Angle, Undertaker (not a popular choice here I know, but I used to love him and now he is a tired old man who needs to not come back)

John Cena - for the same reason as everyone in the last 7 pages.
Randy Orton - I used to love his "Legend Killer" gimmick, he's boring now though.
Rey Mysterio - Loved his matches but as I'm not 8 any more, it's obvious what's going to happen whenever someone conveniently falls on the middle rope.

When I was a kid the Hardy Boyz used to my favourite wrestlers. But roll forward to the present day and Matt Hardy is a fuck up and Jeff I'm just indifferent to.

Jeff Hardy.

Used to think he was pretty cool until I found out about his drug issues and lost all respect for him, no sympathy for drug addicts.

My sister was a big fan of his as well and when she found out, it broke her heart.
Which in seeing this made me hate him even more.

Cena used to be ok too, until Wrestlemania 23, that did it for me ; I'd had enough of him after that.

Cena, Nash, Hogan, the Hardys, and Goldberg. I was 10 when Cena debuted so I'd say I was a kid.

I've never understood the hate for The Game. I watched the entire 2002-2004 years and damn he was that damn good.

I really can't think of anyone who I liked as a kid and then later hated, though. Maybe John Morrisson.
