Grandest era for me, with the WWF and NWA.

My dad used to record the NWA programme on itv for us to watch the following morning, before primary school.

The Road Warriors being a favourite from the NWA.

Well, in the 1980s, it was the WWF and WCW that I mainly remember. I didn't know the NWA was around then though. Interesting.

The NWA has been around a long time, and WCW was under their banner before Ted Turner bought them from Jim Crockett Jr.

I watched both WWF and NWA, but watched WWF more and was also a little bit more familiar with the wrestlers. Wrestling was great back in the day. I watched wrestling whenever it came on, all the way up to the Attitude Era. Just when you think Hulk Hogan is the greatest wrestler of all time, you run into this guy called Stone Cold who quickly changes ones mind. Stone Cold is absolutely the greatest of all time. Nowadays, I don't really watch wrestling, I will click through the channels and pass it, but get bored with it and move on to the next channel. I sure do miss the days of the Attitude Era.....good times.

Vince missed a trick by not signing Jeep.
