Yes The Wrestling Was Fake, But Did You Watch It And Who Was Your Favorite?

A few weeks ago I was in a restaurant in Greensboro, NC and while I was in the restroom I noticed a signed autograph picture of "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan. I’m not sure if Hacksaw is still on the wrestling circuit as a professional wrestler.

Seeing the autographed picture made me think about growing up and watching professional wrestling on TV. Thinking back I remember watching World Wide Wrestling Federation’s All-Star Wrestling with lots of wrestlers like: Andre the Giant, Bob BacklundThe Undertaker, Bret Hart, Big John Studd, Mick Foley, Bruno Sammartino, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Ravishing Rick Rude and Jake "The Snake" Roberts. All great ones growing up. I must admit over time I watched the show because I think Vince McMahon is a marketing genius. I was always impressed with the way he ran the company, the story lines and how he marketed the "sport".

I think my favorite was Macho Man Randy Savage. He was funny, got really excited when he was doing interviews, was a crowd favorite and always was in the biggest matches. 

  • Did you watch wrestling as a kid?
  • Who were your favorite wrestlers?
  • Did you ever go to the live shows?
  • Do your kids watch it now?

I look forward to reading your comments.
