I don't watch it but i don't think it's changed for years, Raw's still on at 2am on Monday nights, and SmackDown's on on Fridays but i don't know what time.

Thats awesome. For us, we got everything live, but before DVRs and that shit, you had to choose. I got back into it right around the time Vince and Austin started in. But WCW is what brought me back first. The NWO was interesting and WWF just went crazy :D

I didnt get to watch both though. I used to switch back and forth during commercials or shitty segments. Right around the time of Corporate Rock/Mankind's Super Bowl thing, I stopped switching back and forth and was pretty much was WWF-only from that point until the war was over. I did switch occasionally and I would always watch the first hour of Nitro because it was unopposed. Nitro was 3 hours here and live.

It was also on Monday. So that kinda sucked espc if I had morning classes.

lol yeah, i used to watched the first two hours of nitro (unless my dad wouldn't let me) then watch raw. i remember back then as well, if for some reason i missed to first 5 or 10 minutes of raw i would stay up till 2am when it was repeated and watch it. that's how into it i was!

I got into wwf in 97 just as dx started, i used to be literally on the edge of my seat when the dx music come on, hbk will forever be a legend in my eyes for his dx days.

the first ppv i watched was badd blood, that hell in the cell match was epic!

Bad Blood? Isn't that when Kane first turned up? Ripping the cell door off and destroying The Undertaker? Classic stuff.

i started getting into wrestling in 91/92. we didnt have sky buy our local video rental shop had tons of videos and got in all the ppvs as they came out. i started off with wrestlemania 6 and then got a different one each week from then on.

once id caught up and seen pretty much every ppv to have ever taken place, i started getting my uncle who had sky to tape all the ppvs for me, i think summerslam 92 was the first, i remember collecting the trading cards for it and everything.

this combination of my local video shop and my uncle continued for quite a few years until my parents finally caved in and got sky at home in 97. it is therefore 97/98 thats my real golden era of wrestling too simply because it was my first real time being able to watch raw every week and of course what with hbk always being my favourite anyway, even going back to his sensational sherri days, i absolutely loved dx.

it felt like a time where wrestling was more popular amongst everyone anyway, the first few smackdown games on the ps, everyone seemed to own and be talking about. and i reckon just about everyone at my school watched royal rumble 2000 on channel 4 with mae youngs tits and the street fight between foley and hhh.

is weird how when i was at school there was only about 4 or 5 of us who were proper wrestling fans who stuck with it through thick and thin and watched it all the time. the rest of the time it seemed to flick between being really popular and everything liking it and then it being sad and being ridiculed for watching it.

KIDS EH

Well if we're going all the way back, my first foray into wrestling was as a child. I was like 7 or 8 when I started watching. It was during the run to Mania 2 was when I got into it. Went to a house show in 1988 and then I stopped watching again until I got into it with Attitude and all that. I missed most of Bret as top dog.

Wrestlemania six was my first one, amazing times was into it for years until papa shango and yokozuma became big stars then I had grew out of wrestling cos it was gay innit. Then at school everyone was on about it again years later i couldn;t believe it, tuned it and it was amazing, had missed all the early austin 3:16 shit the Rock was just making a name for himself, great times

me and balldog used to spend friday nights round mine, no wonder we never got any shags, then they added smackdown which was on saturday night :D big times

:D :D :D

He looks like he's had a few pints tbf. The Undertaker's always been a massive MMA fan, i reckon there'd been a bit of bad blood between them in the past, looks like Brock said something to him just before he came on camera and The Undertaker responded to that. Brock's a cunt anyway :-X
