BTW, this thread really should have been in "Classic Wrestling." It concerns the history of the WWE which, contrary to what many out there believe, began long before the "sports entertainment" era. It stretches back 52 years!

you really need to get off your ass and write a book on this stuff man id love to read about guys like Haystasks Calhoun, Lou Thesz, and of course Buddy Rogers and Gorgeous George. To me those two seem similar to an untrained eye, what is your take on their similarities? differences?

My top 5 Greatest:

1. Undertaker
2. Austin
3/4.Flair/Hogan
5. The Rock

My 5 Favorite

1. "Stone cold" Steve Austin
2. John Cena
3. Kurt Angle
4. GOLDBERG
5. Undertaker

Honorable mention goes out to CM Punk and Samoa Joe

Proud Cena Mark

Honorable Mention: New Jack: The Original Gangsta!

A documentary should be done and put on the WWE Network or something, that way more people might take an interest, which may make places like here a better place also.

I don't really know much about the wrestling back then and barely recognise a few names, many which I've learnt from here.



Don't worry Heff, we can still have a nice Thanksgiving. I bought us a nice big vegetarian turkey. It'll be delicious!

Why is this a thread? Can't you just Google, or wiki this?

There is a correct number. WWE does not recognize them, Wikipedia does not recognize them. And it is WWE's title, so if they so no, no is correct. They didn't forget to add these reigns (like RVD's European title reign), they did not want them to be added to their title histories.

I think wwe.com has a section that shows every champ

It is officially Paiges house now. We are all lucky to just be a part of it.Think Paige is going away? Well Think Again. mark:
