i grow up on wcw so i went with that though attitude era was probably the best of the 4
I actually think WWE losing so many headliners to WCW really allowed for some lesser talent to grow so that was cool. Also WCW vs WWE(F) made both companies work very hard.. which made for some stressful times for the heads i'm sure but for fans.. some sweet entertainment!
i agree man, wcw's nwo era and later on the ecw hardcore era definitely pushed wwe to have to rethink and reinvent themselves. it makes perfect sense that now that there's no real competition, the wwe has drifted from creativity and is now focused on being kid friendly to sell merchandise. we need another promotion (or tna) to actually threaten wwe (very unlikely to happen but...) for them to reconsider adding more edge to their productNWO era.
That was the lift-off and beginning of the Attitude Era.
great point. the characters and promos back then were like no other!Late 80's - Early 90's, well actually I'd go as far as saying late 80's - mid 90's to be honest (before it got stale at this point), simply because the gimmicks, the storylines, the talent, the promo's, shows, things they'd do, the PPV's the lot was all completely stacked, there was never a dull moment and always something going on, all the talents were being showcased and it was just a good, good period for wrestling history.
All the larger than life characters, the persona's and the talent was just on a whole other level back then, not that it isn't now (we have some immense talent in the WWE right now!) ... but back then it was just unreal, most of those mid carders would be main event now.
Attitude Era was great! But it didn't have much substance behind the rawness and edginess it brought, not as opposed to previous era's really though the AE did bring us some of the greatest talents also!!!
wrestling will never be as good as it was back thenfuck I can't even choose. well actually I can but it's a tie between EVERYTHING LATE 90'S.... From WCW ECW AND WWF..... Holy fuck I wish I could go back in time and wrestling was still as good as it was in the late 90's
true, i think wwf really ushered in the use of gimmicks, cutting brilliant promos and working the mic. whatever happened i the mid to late 90s was a culmination of the revolution wwf started in the late 80s to early 90sI absolutely love the New Generation. 1993 - 1996. Especially 1994. Bret was the fucking man.
true, though one could argue the revolution began as far back as late 80s but the mid 90s to late 90s took it and ran with it and ushered the sport into a new generation. shame we will likely never see that again, the PG era absolutely blows1995-2000 Revolutionary years in wrestling history!
^ yup. appreciation of the late 80s and early 90s seems a bit lost on some of the fans nowadaysAbsolutely, I think that's without doubt the best period, a lot of people here haven't watched previous to the AE really in enough depth I don't think and this is why this era gets slightly overlooked.
I'd say around 91/92 time it became at it's best, but definitely those era's you mentioned were absolutely on point!
