Started watching in late '80's/early '90's and Ultimate Warrior was a cut above everyone in my eyes, back then. I couldn't stand Hulk Hogan & how he dominated and always seemed to manage the victory. I'll never forget watching Wrestlemania VI & saying to my friend 'Hulk Hogan never loses, Warrior won't be able to beat him.' I was just happy that Warrior was going for the WWF title. When he did indeed win I went apeshit.

There seems to be a lot of comparison for my hatred of Hogan as a child to my hatred of Cena now as an adult.

That's exactly how I felt! I dunno what it was, but I think one of the first guys I saw wrestling was the Ultimate Warrior and since that moment he was my staunch favourite. I knew Hogan was a good guy, but I always cheered Warrior over him.

Damn I'm 29 and feel old as hell Lol. I've been watching wrestling since i was a baby. I remember being fascinated with Ricky Steamboat. That fire shit had me in awe. Randy Savage always took precedent in my heart over hogan ugh i just couldn't stand him for some reason. My first crush was bret hart...i cried when he lost to the british bulldog. Undertaker legitimately scared the shit out of me with the eyes rolling back and the caskets and stuff...*sigh* memories

Brock Lesnar in late 2002 early 2003 and then Golberg later that year. I loved badasses as a kid.

Yeah, I'm pretty similar to you in the way that gradually Bret started to become my favourite. Always loved him in his Hart Foundation days & then he started getting his singles run while Warrior was in and out.

I was drawn to the energy & the colours. Something that I always have been (& always will be to an extent) from Sonic the Hedgehog on the SEGA Mega Drive around the same time, 1991, to my music tastes (happy hardcore). Ultimate Warrior was the perfect guy for me to cheer on, especially compared to Hulk Hogan who was always rammed down our throats. (having said that, so was Warrior but I didn't care)

Hulk Hogan. Without question. He's the reason I started watching wrestling.

In hindsight you notice the flaws, but I just roll with it. He was appropriate for the times and a big star, that's all I really care about. With Savage I can really respect and appreciate him looking back, but with Warrior I just let the child me mark out.

I think Bret being from my city and country really reignited my interest in pro-wrestling, in a selfish way. It kickstarted my fondness for the more mat based styles and to this day Bret remains my favourite.
