As a kid: Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, Legion of Doom

In high school: Sting, Shawn Michaels, Ultimo Dragon, Lex Luger

In college: Goldberg, Scott Steiner, Rob Van Dam, Buff Bagwell

In my 20s: John Cena, Batista, Chris Benoit, Edge

In my 30s/current: AJ Styles (TNA), Jeff Hardy, Shinsuke Nakamura, Braun Stroman

Started watching in the mid 90’s so 

as a kid: Stone Cold Steve Austin, Chris Jericho and DDP

stopped watching in high school, you know chasing girls and what not

got back into it around 08-09: Beer Money, AJ Styles, and Samoa Joe

now at 31: AJ Styles, Danial Bryan(still really enjoy watching him in ROH as the American Dragon Bryan Danielson) Chris Jericho, and Adam Cole 

Eddie Guerrero, Bret Hart and Undertaker are always great to go back and watch but really where great during times when I wasn’t watching

Back in the 90s, Sable and Steve Blackman.

There was also this other guy. I believe he was called the Godfather or something. He was a black guy who's somewhat racist gimmick was that he was supposed to be a kind of wrestling pimp. He would come to the ring surrounded by these beautiful, scantily clad women ( his "Ho's"), and always extend the same offer to his scheduled opponent. They could either fight him (". . . and make no mistake, I WILL kick yo' @$$"), or forfeit the match and choose one of the "Ho's" to spend the night with. (Yeah, the Attitude Era was basically soft-core porn at times).

Nowadays, I'm mostly about the female wrestlers: Pre Heel-Turn Bayley, Ronda Rousey (all-time favorite), Charlotte Flair, and I'm starting to get into Sonya Deville.

I have been watching and a fan since around the Royal Rumble that was before WrestleMania 4.

I'm too old and been watching too long to remember what years were what and who was around. These days I look back at who was around in the past and I like more wrestlers now than I did then I think just because I respect past wrestlers for what they did.

Some I remember liking early on were Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Ultimate Warrior, Texas Tornado, Bret Hart and then I kind of skipped to WCW and Liked Dean Malenko a lot.

My all time favorite would be Trish Stratus. We kind of know each other and have stayed in touch a bit since she retired years ago.

Today, like Mako, I'm more into the women. I really like NXT. I check out AEW here and there. I at least keep up on Impact, ROH, MLW, New Japan and some others.

I have done a lot of wrestling fan art in the past and still do some in the present.

as far as the current product, I don't watch a lot of raw or smackdown, I keep up with results online. NXT is an easy watch and full of good performers. I wold like to see more AEW but just haven't carved out the time.

Question: whats everyone's favorite submission match?

Drew McIntyre won the Royal Rumble last night

Brock Lesnar came in at #1 and threw out the next 13 entrants

Edge came back as a surprise entrant

I'm glad Drew won the Rumble but was a little disappointed about Charlotte winning the Woman's Rumble, I think they should of given it to someone up and coming, maybe someone from the NXT roster.

Really happy to see Drew get the win. He seems like he could be a good matchup with Brock. Seeing Edge come back was great and after Raw I can't wait to see how things unfold with Randy on the way to Wrestlmania.

Edge and Randy Orton, former tag team partners but Orton gave Edge a RKO outta nowhere and a Conchairto.

Raw sucked last night. 3 matches lasted less than 90 seconds, Asuka won again and Ricochet won Triple Threat for a title shot against Brock Lesnar even though he has been jobbing for months now. They also kept talking about the Super Bowl and the snowstorm outside the arena.

In Saudi Arabia, Goldberg beat Bray Wyatt with 4 Spears and a Jackhammer to win the WWE Universal Championship. On Smackdown, Roman Reigns challenged him for a title match at Wrestlemania. Goldberg? Main eventing Wrestlemania in 2020?

These empty Performance Center shows are unwatchable. There is no live audience to dictate what they want, so now it is up to Vince McMahon to decide what to give the fans and thats not a good thing.

Especially In this type of entertainment sport it’s really the audience (fans) that dictate the tone of the spectacle. No matter how hard the body slams are if there are no audible reactions, then it’s like watching without audio.

There was a good Jacksonville Street Fight on AEW Dynamite Wednesday with Kenny Omega & Matt Hardy vs Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara.
