The very first wrestling match you saw?

I was thinking about this and damn, this is actually pretty hard.

I'm pretty sure it was a Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels match on Raw in summer 2004? I'm at least positive one of the guys involved was one of them, at least. And not to long after that episode HHH and HBK were meant to shake hands at the end of a Raw episode, but Kane then came and assaulted Michaels.

Either that or a JBL match on SmackDown that aired on Velocity and then had Eddie come out afterwards and JBL saying "no, I'm not gonna fight you again" or something like that. No idea who JBL faced, though. Can't remember.

What about you?

Re: The very first wrestling match you saw?

No fucking clue. It was 1998, and my memory is spotty. I know the first PPV I watched was the 98 Royal Rumble though.

Met Dean/Mox on March 28 2015/April 2 2016/August 20 2016/April 1 2017/April 7 2019!!
Met Roman on April 2 2016/April 7 2018!! Met Seth on March 31 2017/April 6 2019!!

MOX LIVES.

Re: The very first wrestling match you saw?

British Bulldog vs some jobbers back around mid 80's I'm guessing. I thought wrestling looked stupid as some classmates had wrestler posters of guys like Hogan and Slaughter. I started to tape shows for a friend and finally watched a match and was amazed by the Bulldog's athleticism and double team moves. Became a hardcore fan and remember watching WCCW back in the day on the weekends as we had a satellite dish and got channels from Texas. I ended up hating Hogan and generally enjoyed the heels more. Also remember my first Wrestlemania which was the third one on the old system they used back in the day (can't recall what but remember it was really cool to be able to see the event at a local high school). Great days of the past!

A gentleman never reveals his age.












But nah, the first thing coming to mind is Tatanka vs. Bam Bam, sure it could have been something with Dusty or Papa Shango, don't remember timelines.

Re: The very first wrestling match you saw?

Sometime in 2003. I just remember it involving RVD but don't remember who the opponent was.

Coincidentally the first match I saw live 10 years later involved RVD too, RVD vs Big E. When WWE came to South Africa in 2013. Wasn't the Capetown show, so I didn't see the infamous Randy Orton low blow

Re: The very first wrestling match you saw?

I remember it clearly, Goldberg vs. Hugh Morris. Goldberg got me into wrestling.

Then I was shocked one night when I stumbled across Too Much vs. The JOB Squad because I had no idea there was more than one promotion.

Re: The very first wrestling match you saw?

I remember seeing Hulk on TV when I was 3 and I was hooked ever since.
I remember him walking down to the ring.

First match... god I don't know. I THINK it was Duggan vs some jobber on a Superstars or Main Event.

WWE Champion CM Punk vs Ryback vs John Cena. Can't for the love of me remember when that was, though.

Pretty sure it was Nash/Hall in WCW, staying up late as a kid taping WCW onto VHS tapes. The good times.
