Hi guys, i have just realized its been a year since i started watching WWE. I have never seen the Attitude Era, so what I thought I'd do is give you some of my opinions on the talent this year. Also I have a few questions to ask. Right, I'll get started by giving you my top 3 champions for each belt over the past year!

WWE champions:
1) John Cena
2) CM Punk
3) The Miz


World Heavyweight Champions:
1) Daniel Bryan
2) Christian
3) Mark Henry


U.S Champions:
1) Zack Ryder
2) Dolph Ziggler
3) Santino


Intercontinental Champions:
1) Cody Rhodes
2) Wade Barrett
3) Ezekiel Jackson


Tag Team Champions: Honestly? Who cares about that mess! Evan Bourne messed up any chance of a revival

Right Now for my fave 5 and the 5 I can't stand:

Fave 5: 1) John Cena
2) Daniel Bryan
3) CM Punk
4) Cody Rhodes
5) Zack Ryder



Cant Stand: 1) Randy orton
2) Jack Swagger
3) Lord Tensai
4) The Miz
5) David Otunga

Also, Im sort of new to this, and it sounds a bit stupid, but what does IWC stand for?
I really want some of you guys who have been watching for a long time, to compare your favorites to mine!

IWC = Internet Wrestling Community. Basically people who read dirtsheets and/or posts on here, generally percieved to know more about wrestling as a whole than the casual.

And you're in the same boat as me - only been watching since late 2010, although i've been starting to watch full episodes from '97, watching the Attitude Era in full (slowly).

I agree with your Intercontinental and US championship list - WWE title, i'm not a fan of Cena, so I guess i'd run with Punk, Miz and ADR (although Cena and ADR are interchangeable as I don't like either of 'em). WHC title - Henry, Bryan and Orton (hated Christians reign - love the guy but his reign was shite..)

Overall, current fav 5: Punk, Ziggler, Kane, Rhodes and DBry.
worst 5: Cena, Miz, O'Tunga, Sheamus and ADR.

Pretty much what i'vedone. Think I know 3 results from 1997 to 2010 at the minute, and that's the ones that are costantly discussed on here (Rock/Austin, Rock/Hogan and obviously Taker's WM matches).
Started watching at KOTR '96 and currently at IYH: Ground Zero in September 97. Fun ride so far.

Pirate Bay. User names WAZZ (I think) has full years of RAW from '96 onward. Just search raw 1996' . Take a whileto download due to low seeders but well worth it. Think I got it in around 10 hours. Pretty decentquality considering it was '96.

You talk about it as if you know what tag teams used to be like... Are you sure you've only watched for a year?

Also, Bourne wasn't the saving grace. Primo and Epico are, the WWE just need to book it so. (Y)

I think some of the members of this forum might have influenced that decision! But I'm a big fan of Bourne, he shares my first name and I like his style! Primo and Epico have a lot of potential I agree, but they cant make a tag team division by themselves!

Be careful with that Pirate Bay shit of you try that. I don't know what your download speed is like, but if you get carried away with that shit, your parents will end up talking to unpleasant men in flashy suits at your front door. Use at your own risk.

Haha fair enough. Well Attitude Era was from (roughly) autumn of '97 through to the start of 2002. Many will tell ya they were the good days of wrestling. That's what i'm watching ATM :)

I think I might stick to trying to find classic matches on youtube, its just a shame that after you've watched part 1; part 2 isn't in the related videos so it takes half an hour to find!
