Re: How old were you when you started liking wrestling
I was in 7th grade / early 1999. Just turned 13.
I was new to my school and the first group I clicked with were all big wrestling fans. I'd talk video games and music with them, but every Monday (after a PPV) or Tuesday (after Raw) morning, I'd be the odd person out. No idea what they were going on about.
So I watched one week and was hooked. The promo bit reeled me in. Corporation in the ring, people interrupting each other, drew me in.
Enough of big slow guys, 'da look,' and goofy catchphrases. Hated the Rock, Austin, etc... then. Hate Cena now.
Much respect for CM Punk, Dean Malenko, Chris Jericho, Chris Benoit, Seth Rollins, Eddie Guerrero, Daniel Bryan, John Morrison/Johnny Mundo, Adrian Neville, Antonio Cesaro, Tyson Kidd, and all of the other "Vanilla Midgets" who make these shows worth watching.
