What was the first wrestling PPV you watched as it was happening?

For me - Survivor Series 1990 with the worldwide unleashing of the Undertaker and the slightly less impressive Gobbledy Gooker.

I had seen PPVs before but only on video cassette.

How about you folks?

Die hard fan since 2002, didn't see a ppv until SS 2007.

Yeah I had no Internet and was poor.

Didn't have sky tv and shows here start at 1am so they were always taped for me. First one I remember live was sneaking down with my friends at his house to watch royal rumble 91

Re: What was the first wrestling PPV you watched as it was happening?

WM13: Watched it for Undertaker vs Sid.Though also enjoyed Rocky Maivia(my second fav wrestler then behind Taker) vs Sultan and Austin vs Bret was amazing as usual

Great memories of this show,which also happened to be the first PPV which I watched

THE ROCK: The biggest star and draw of pro-wrestling industry EVER.

1.Holds the record of drawing most major shows with 10,000+ attendance on top in one calendar year.[Broke Hogan's(1986) and Austin's(1998) record in 1999 and set a record of headlining over 100 shows with 10,000 plus people in attendance in year 2000.A box-office drawing record that is unsurpassed till date.]

2.Holds the record of main-eventing almost 17 PPVs that have got over 500k buys(again,a feat of inimitable drawing power that is unmatched by anyone in pro-wrestling history)

3.Drew the highest cable ratings during the AE.

4.Sold more merchandise than anyone active between mid 1999-2001.

Royal Rumble 2000. It was the HHH vs Cactus Jack street fight that got me into wrestling.
