Anything involving McMahon/Austin or Rock/Foley was golden. I liked WCW too, but almost entirely for the cruiser-weights. ECW and AJPW were my main loves during the late 90's.

Also, anyone else just love Kaientai? Really wish they would have been utilised better, rather than turned into a comedy act.

This. Some of the stuff they did was insane, Tanaka took a beating like a boss.

I especially liked the fact you could watch most WCW matches and not have to worry that somone would get DQ'd or the random badass of the month wouldn't run into every major match and do his finisher on everyone in the ring. That's a gross over generalization, but it felt like it was rare you'd actually see a legitimate major match with an actual pinfall or submission in the attitude era.

It's weird that you described what's wrong with TNA today, which is run by the same people from WCW lol

Unfortunately the only show I managed to catch during this time was WWF Heat, but around 2002 a friend let me borrow his VHS tape of Wrestlemania 17 and wow. I still go back and watch it every now and then because it's just that good. Probably my favorite PPV ever.

I seem to remember one specific night where WCW had an event somewhere where there was a pool surrounding the stage area. I think Booker T might have gone in the water. Still couldn't convince my dad WCW was better. Of course I switched quickly during the early Rock/Stone Cold days.

I went to a pay-per-view recently with my dad and brother because I thought I'd enjoy it for the nostalgia factor (I was wrong, it sucked). It was that 4-way cage match they had in Milwaukee.

Best Era. Hasn't been the same since. Most of my favorites getting too old or dead and the WWF/E buying out the ECW and WCW pretty much killed my interest. The last straw for me was the whole "Vince McMahaon is dead" storyline which was cult short by Chis Benoit's real life murder-suicide.

The WCW cruiserweight division in the 90s was absolutely amazing. Billy Kidman, Rey Mysterio Jr., Juventud Guerrerra, Psychosis, Ultimo Dragon, Dean Malenko, Chris Jericho, Eddie and Chavo Guerrerro, the seemingly endless supply of Mexican talent... it was probably the most talented wrestling division ever seen. It's a shame that it became so marginalized. Ideally, they would have had the cruiserweight title as an occasional main event. That is one thing that TNA actually did right, at least before Russo arrived. TNA's X-Division acted as an alternative to the heavyweight division and was often featured in the main event of a PPV.

It's such a shame. It's what got me interested in wrestling. All the trick moves and air.

Then the stroylines and heavyweight personalities made me a fan of wrestling.

I wish I was smart enough to at least record RAW and watch it since they overlapped or whatever.

I think I would catch the last hour of RAW or something and missed a bunch of stuff.

I also think RAW's last hour was after my bedtime, and had to wait until I got a TV in my room.

Uploaded by me years and years ago, the storyline around Survivor Series 1998 that turned both Rock and Mankind into main eventers.

If you believe (wrongly) that Vince Russo is incapable of good writing and the Attitude Era was only successful because it had big names, watch this.

Check out this movie if you haven't already. It's a great documentary even if you aren't a wrestling fan, but it also documents a lot of the events leading up to and including the Montreal Screwjob.

I loved wrestling during the late 80's - early 90's, then I was a very casual fan during the attitude era. Was more interested in videogames and girls. I have to admit though that NWO was an awesome angle, even bigger and better than the Four Horsemen of the 1980's. Had some fun times at a few live events and ppv's. Goldberg could have been as big as Hogan imo.

The Attitude Era. I loved it. It was my weekly "soap opera". I don't remember exactly when I started watching, but I gave up on it all around 2002. It went completely downhill from that point. Cena was like the final nail in the coffin.

But ya, I do kind of miss tuning in every Monday night to see what would happen, and chatting about it on IRC.

The whole WCW with Shane and the ECW invasion stuff while fun for a while is when I started to loss interest though. I started watching less and less as the months went on. Sometimes rarely finishing entire episode. Around the time they were doing the whole Randy Orton the legend killer thing is when I finally stopped watching for good.

you both took my (joke) answers. Read to Rumble is a movie I can watch whenever. I love it.

I always thought the triple tiered cage match was the coolest thing ever but it was pretty ridiculous (and it was also in Ready to Rumble!)

Anyway, Stone Cold being Stone Cold was probably my favorite thing ever during the entire period. Chris Jericho as well in WCW.

Stone Cold pretty much got me through that era by himself. I couldn't get enough of that stuff as a kid.

Though undertaker vs mankind in hell in a cell was and probably still is the most brutal thing I've ever watched. I don't know how he didn't break his neck that night.

Very Best of WCW Monday Nitro - Edited version of the WWE DVD release looking at Nitro memories, hosted by DDP.

This DVD sucked out loud the only match that I remember that didn't suck was the Eddie Guerrero match. He put a great match on and the crowd was dead the entire time. One of the reasons I liked ECW was the fans, they actually had a pulse and appreciated a good match.
