When did you start watching and how you discovered wrestling
Started watching in about '99. Dad got me into it. Well actually he was watching and i just sat next to him.
If there was a time you stopped watching,why
I stopped watching in about 2002/2003 round there. The very last thing I could remember was Lesnar bearhugging Hogan. Although, funny thing, at the time I didn't even know it was Lesnar lol. I just remembering sitting there in horror as the blood came out of Hogan's mouth. I really don't know how I stopped. At the time I was moving, so maybe the process of moving out was just overwhelming for me at the time and I just forgot about it.
But I didn't completely forget about. I remember little bits and pieces of WWE when I first moved in the new house. I remember the night of Kane's unmasking, Eugene playing up with the damn pyrotechnics but I don't know what happened. There was a time, where I completely stopped.
I started back watching in '06. I made some new friends in school and they were big into it. Strange story actually, how I got back into wrestling. Now, the previous months before I used to check through the TV guide and I'd always see "WWE Monday Night RAW" but it had no effect on me really. Like, it never really struck me "Hey, wrestling! I used to watch this shit1" I read the words "WWE Monday Night RAW" like I would "Spongebob" or any other show. It never occurred to be to check it out. It didn't ring a bell.
The one day, I'm in school hanging out with friends one evening and one of them says "Man, I can't wait for RAW tonight!" and everyone starts talking about it. So, I went home and checked it out and I was hooked immediately. This was in '06 btw, around February. It was then that I saw my all time favourite, John Cena. Unless he's facing Edge or CM Punk of course, then Cena sucks lol.
Another funny thing, many when I started back watching I was so lost. Last time I checked Edge's theme song was just the words "You think you know me" running on an endless loop. When his intro hit,I quickly realized that I was singing the wrong thing. Then, I also realized there were whole bunch of new people like Benjamin, Carlito, Masters and Spirit Squad. Seeing RVD was a markout moment though. I didn't recall him to well at first but the name and rolling thunder were the "Holy shit! This guy!" moment. I'll never forget when he did the rolling thunder on the ladder. Yes, I know there were countless moments but I knew which one I was talking about.
Anyway, that's my story really. As for my all time fave. Yeah even though I grew up watching during the days of Rock and Austin I never really cared for them. I'd be lying if I were to say Austinis my all time GOAT or Rocky. John Cena is just so much fresher in my mind, plus I can remember tons more from him than I do Austin and Rock. I guess he was my true idol after all I was 11 in '06 and only 5 in '99. My faves back then were Jericho and Lita however, I never really looked up to Austin and Rock. Jericho and Lita however, were my childhood idols.
