Damn...this sucks :(

Most of the greats from the 80's and 90's are passing way too soon...R.I.P "Anvil"

I think it's awesome that Roman Reigns (Joe) is going to fight Leukemia with all of his might.  It increases the chances that he'll beat it.  And it'll be inspirational for others with this form of cancer.

I was surprised to read that Jim Neidhart passed away.  I was even more surprised to read that he died in August, as it's now October and I didn't know about it until today.

Neidhart was one of my favorite wrestlers from back in the day, even though he didn't have as much success as a singles competitor as Bret Hart did.

R.I.P "Mean" Gene Okerlund...

Another legend passes...him and Bobby "the brain" Heenan were THE voices of pro wrestling back when it was worth watching.

RIP Scott Hall

Out of all the "wrassler's" that have passed too soon through the years,this one hurt!

This guy should have been world champ at some or any point in his career,but even without it...Hall changed the game in many ways with a brilliant mind,and actually made pro wrestling COOL for about 5-6 years!

Glad I got to grow up watching him from "The Bad Guy" to one of the"Outsiders"/NWO 

R.I.P Bad Guy...

I noticed the first time I ever watched roadhouse,I knew Terry Funk better than I knew Swayze :lol:

I got to grow up during the best times to be a wrestling fan...

Was really little during the "Golden era" 80's,then the "New generation" era of early 90's was rough,but I was 12 when the Attitude Era hit...and it was glorious :lol:

Things got too carried away for a while and they had to tone things down for safety which made it seem lame.  I’ve been watching again for a year or so and there are some pretty good storylines and that’s really what it’s about imo. Good guys vs bad guys. The action isn’t as real or violent but when I go back and watch matches from when I was a kid in the 70’s things were comparatively tame but exciting because you loved the good guys and hated the bad guys. 
Growing up here pre WWF locally we had Piper, Ventura, Snuka, Adonis, etc. basically half of the early WWF was filtched from my local scene. And it was all nothing compared to the attitude era but that era was so extreme it ruined wrestling because suddenly wrestlers lifespans were about 32. Now they have dialed it back to a safer level and you can either blow it off as inferior or appreciate it for drama.

The only ones I recall are from the 60s and early 70s and they were local "celebrities" only.  Cowboy Bob Kelly and Mike "The Hippie" Boyette.  Both are long dead, I'm pretty sure.
