When we got cable, I was introduced to the world of the (then) WWF. One of my earliest wrestling memories is seeing the Iron Sheikh Win the belt from Bob Backlund, and dropping it to the "Real American" Hulk Hogan soon thereafter. Andre, Junk Yard Dog, George the Animal Steel, Ricky Steamboat, Jimmy Snuka, Polish Power Ivan Putzki, Piper's Pit ...man the early '80's were my Golden Age of wrestling.

The WWF ended up signing most of the mid-south guys so I got to see most of those characters. Don't remember Jones or Humongous.


God bless each and every one of you

Watched it with my dad a lot in the 1960's. After getting to be around 15 years old or so, I stopped watching it because I couldn't stand how fake it was. I guess I just don't like having my intelligence insulted on a regular basis, as often as wrestling does.

I told my dad one time, those guys have pitiful boxing fundamentals, because they slam their foot down on the ground as they're hitting the other man. You'll never, ever, at any time, see a boxer do that, because it would cause a loss of energy transfer.

I understood they did it though, because they thought it made it look, and sound more realistic. Yeah...maybe to a person who hasn't got the slightest idea of how to throw a punch!

Finally, I just decided that WWE wrestling is about the stupidest thing in the history of mankind! ...not including liberals, that is!

Mid 80's in N.J. wrestling was on once a week.
Hulk Hogan was big at that time.
Myself and Billy G. would get stoned on pot and watch it.
We knew it was fake as hell but the weed made it really fun to watch.

So you only watch documentaries?
You know most movies and weekly television is fake.
Of course rasslin’ is (and was) fake. You had to know how to have fun with it.
There was always a villain, a hero, sometimes a heroine, and lately there is sometimes
an anti-hero, someone like Steve Austin, after her was Stunning Steve, and there is
always comedy. They are basically soap operas for guys. Of course they are fake, but
they’re fun. Just take it for what it is and don’t complain “‘cause it ain’t real”
It’s not a real sport, it’s a melodrama with some athletic components, and it goes good
with a couple of beers on a Friday night in your local arena.

Mom suddenly jumped up, ran to the ring and stuck her cigarette on Dory's back. He jumped up and was going to chase her, but fortunately the other wrestlers restrained him.

I got to watch a lot of wrestlers throughout the years. From Verne Gagne and Nick Bockwinkel's time to John Cena and everything in between. I lost my friend who I watched wrestling with every weekend for years a few years ago and it just isn't the same, so I've finally retired from being an avid fan. God bless them all, they provided a lot of entertainment over the decades!

Dad took us to see wrestling live a couple times at the teamsters hall, Baton Rouge. Most of the not quite top tier wrestlers made it through there with the occasional big name. I remember the Funk brothers when one had a national or world title, they invited my brother to their table when they were out partying later that night. Mostly the usual theatrics but occasionally somebody really lost their cool. I laughed when a wrestler got clobbered with the edge of a steel chair! That stretched him out.

I moved up to Rapides Parish later. Wrestling was huge. Fewer competing forms of entertainment, the huge airbase, cheap living expenses, a lot of the wrestlers lived in the area. The reason I responded to your post is your mom reminded me of an old friend. He was at the matches at the coliseum. Like many of those country boys, he dipped. It was some big super event and he had been using his spit cup for hours. When the bad guy of the moment came out the ring and was headed back in, Paul threw the entire contents of his spit cup across the guy's head and back! Another BIG unhappy camper when he spun around and tried to see who had done it. Paul pretended to drink from the cup!

Hacksaw Duggan was one of the locals, had to leave the area and the association when he was caught smoking pot in his giant four wheel truck. It wasn't the pot that did it, he was smoking and palling around with his arch enemy, the Iron Sheik!

Those guys are a lot bigger than they look on TV! The Sheik was going out a door as I was going in and he pretty much filled it, width and height. That was long before the admission that it was all a show so it was clandestine that a house on a country road I went by every evening was where the wrestlers and referees met to work things out. I never went inside but one or two days a week the driveway and yard would be packed with the wrestler's vehicles. I was told they had gutted the place and it had a full ring in it.

Lots of memories. Real or fake, wrestling was still fun!

Movie and television actors don't tell you that they aren't fake! Did I hurt your feelings that I stated what I honestly felt? Complaining would more aptly be if I continued to watch it, but complained anyway. Since I decided that it was too stupid to watch, I simply stopped watching it. All I did here was give my honest opinion. You might want to toughen up a little more and not get so defensive when someone doesn't see things the way you do. It's all part of growing up!

No hurt feelings here, but I think yours are. You still seem to be complaining, and you
stopped watching when? Feelings still smarting though, eh? maybe you need to toughen
up and quit whining, that’s part of growing up.

I used to speak to Jake's dad, Grizzly Smith a little. He was fond of a girl that worked in a bar with a couple pool tables in the side room. He never showed any interest in the pool tables though. Nice soft spoken easy going guy. There was a really obnoxious little fellow pestering the girl one night and Grizzly spoke to him a couple times. Would have been like a real grizzly swatting a fly and Smith wasn't advertising who he was so nothing happened.

Very original of you there...I guess that was predictable though. Judging by the tenor of your words previously!

I grew up near Memphis as a kid and we could only get a few channels until cable vision came along. The old school good-guy "rasslers" from that Mid-South Wrestling area were head lined by some old fat dude by the name of Jackie Fargo and then Jerry Lawler became the KING.

My grandmother was a wrestling fanatic and it was hard to keep her away from the TV when it was broadcast on Saturday mornings. She's be in front of the TV and cheering on Jackie and hollering at the ref if some "bad guy" was doing something "illegal" to Jackie.

A few years later, I learned that a big fat young guy who lived across the street from me was a "bad guy" wrestler on that circuit who always wore a mask, so I never knew it was him when I had seen him on TV.

It the early 80s, when I lived in Japan, one of my beer drinking and pool shooting buddies was Brian Adams, who was a young guy in the Air Force at the time and he was from Hawaii. He was training with the Japanese version of WWF and got out and became a superstar over there. He then became a superstar in the US. He died before I ever got to catch up with him again after I left Japan.

Back in the 80s, at a popular Holiday Inn bar, one of our local tough guys mouthed off to
Andre the Giant....Andre was standing on a lower level...he reached up and picked the
guy up by the face....his hand covered the whole face....

I saw Yukon Eric mentioned...how about Whipper Billy Watson...Sky High Lee...
...Jean Kiniski
They all came to our small town arena....us kids liked the entertainment....
...everybody knew it was a show

Wrestling has carny origins hence the attempt to sell it as real to people. TwinkleToes, in what region did you grow up? You mentioned watching in the '60s.

So many to mention: Paul Orndorff, Ricky Steamboat, Mr. Perfect, Rick Rude and Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase. Women got a little shine too w/ the likes of Velvet McIntyre, Princess Victoria, Leilani Kai, Rockin’ Robin, Judy Martin, Sherri Martel and Glamour Girls (Kai/Martin). The depth in the tag division was insane: Barry Windham/Mike Rotundo, Iron Sheik/Nikolai Volkoff, Greg "The Hammer" Valentine/Brutus Beefcake, British Bulldogs, Demolition, Hart Foundation, The Islanders, Killer Bees, The Rockers and Fabulous Rougeau Brothers.

Yes, I remember that fight. Anoki stayed on his back and kept kicking Ali.
Bockwinkel and Stevens were AWA mainstays though Stevens did come East for a few shots in WWWF (most notably against Pedro Morales).

I remember Killer Kowalski (who had a wrestling school in N.J. in the 80's)
Haystacks Calhoun
Antonino Rocca.
Thats about all I remember and I probably misspelled all the names.
Not even "Nature Boy" Buddy Rogers? Some other regulars I know of were:

Ricki Starr
Johnny Valentine
Chief Big Heart
Amazing Zuma
Cowboy Bob Ellis
Karl Von Hess
Vittorio Apollo
Bob Orton
The Fabulous Kangaroos
Tolos Brothers (Chris & John Tolos)
Mark Lewin/Don Curtis
The Bastien Brothers (Red & Lou Bastien)
Sailor Art Thomas/Sweet Daddy Siki

You must've started watching in the '60s b/c that's when Apollo last worked WWWF. Did you get to see Waldo Von Erich? Or Cowboy Bill Watts? I know he had a good money program w/ Sammartino and was co-holder of the WWWF US Tag Titles w/ Monsoon. Speaking of tag teams, the '70s are under the radar - The Valiant Brothers, Tony Garea & Dean Ho/Haystacks Calhoun/Larry Zbyszko/Rick Martel, Chief Jay Strongbow/Billy White Wolf, The Mongols, Mr. Fuji/Prof. Toru Tanaka and Yukon Lumberjacks. How about the midget wrestlers Sky Low Low, Fuzzy Cupid and Little Beaver?
