    I started watching the pro wrestling around the age of 7.

    Back then, I loved Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka. He was one of the first to ever jump off the top ropes with a Superfly head-butt.

    After Superfly, I enjoyed the Ultimate Warrior, he was one crazy dude.

    I quit watching that stuff starting high school and got interested in Nascar.

    Who did you guys like?

    The one I thought was the best was Goldberg. I'd run if I had to face him, lol.

    I was going to say George but deep down I have to go with Jackie Fargo..I really liked Don Morocco, of course Hulk Hogan, and Andre the Giant..I watched a show on the old wrasslers the other night and honestly, I think a tear welled up in my eye..(I didnt let my wife know of course..):wink:

    It's between Andre the Giant and the American Dream Dusty Rhodes.

    For Tag team it was Olie Anderson and.... Dang it I am gettin old (can't remember his brothers name)

    UFC it's the head of that Brazilian Jujitsu clan... again the name escapes me.

    Boxing.... Jack Dempsey

    you're showing yer age, gramps:smile2:
    when i was a boy we didn't have tv. i would stay all nite with my paternal granny on sat nite, and on sunday morn she watched WRASSLIN:big_smile:
    i clearly remember "The Medics"...lol...that was a looooong time ago.

    andre the giant was a hoss.....that guy used to sit down and drink gallons of liqour and eat pounds of meat at supper:eek:oooh:

    but i liked dusty rhodes too....i don't watch it anymore. used to a little, but when chris benoit died i stopped completely...it is an entertainment venue that is out of control. the death rate for pro wrestlers is sky high.

    It's gotta be the Nature Boy, Ric Flair.

    No other comes close. Slick Ric beat everyone that was anyone in the business over the last 30 yrs.

    "To be the Man, you gotta beat the man....woooooooo"

    I'm a Rock fan,when I was younger though I was hooked on Hulkmania.Likes Rick Flair till he was at Salem Speedway and wanted to charge my son $20 for an autograph.He didn't understand at the time why he was charging and the ARCA drivers were free.
