I'm much more of an old school NWA fan.  Nothing like the mid-atlantic and Georgia promotions in the late 70's thru the 80's. 

Amen...I grew up in Roanoke,VA (same hometown as Tony White aka Tony Atlas)...loved Mid-Atlantic Wrestling and was in heaven when we got cable and I was exposed to Ga Championship Wrestling w/ Gordon Solie...I still call the suplex "Su-play" in honor of how Gordon pronounced it.

NO QUESTION.  Nobody else is even close.  He could get me interested in Ron Rossie vs. Buzz Sawyer. haha

Or the all time classic Charlie Fulton vs Mike Feber (in kayfabe neither had ever won a match...I think Fulton won this one).

The man can barely walk today.

I'm sorry to hear that.  He still looks tough, though.

Yeah i heard its great. I read a story that when Davey Boy thought he was taking his first injection, Dynamite put milk in the syringe. Guy sounded like a horror story.

Not true Stu Hart used to have them in his promotion all the time in Canada before Shawn and razor were even wrestling

It's good. Bret was a great worker, but he is such a mark for himself IMO.

Yes I did I thought it was good.   I thought Beyond the mat was good also.  My family is very close with Terry and Dory Funk Jr.  The part about Terry was good.

I have seen Sid looking a lot worse.   He was one of the nicest wrestlers I got to meet when I was a kid

Anyone got any pics / info / stories of The Texas Tornado (Kerry Von Eric)? Guy had a great build (better than Ultimate Warrior and Lex Luger) but died while he was quite young :-\

Yeah thats why HBK totally smoked him in the Ironman Match. One of the greatest entrances ever. Then the kick heard round the world to end the match. Hitman is top five greatest ever though in my book.

Shawn Michaels is one of the few wrestlers I have seen be a ass hole in the locker room to some kids the other is Kevin Nash
Thats the thing about HBK. His whole career you can tell he's a jerk off. The guy is just so great in the ring you cannot not like him. He's terrible on the mic. Now with this whole God thing? Either way P4P he's the best wrestler to ever put on a pair of tights. Every match he's in he's 150%. Sweet Chin Music.

I was about 7 or 8 my dad Bobby Heenan and Kerry were all talking backstage at a WWF house show and out of no where Kerry said   " ya I think I'm gonna take my wife to see that movie" and walked away.   They were talking about the Dallas Cowboys ha ha.
