I am partial to collegiate and freestyle.
Was: Mostly WWF, with a little NWA, which I didn't really appreciate until I got older, naturally.
Am: Still some WWE (Punk, Bryan, Cesaro, Rollins, Ambrose, etc.), but a heavy focus on regional independents (PWG, ROH, CHIKARA).

What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
Many say this was the most shocking heel turn of all time, even more shocking the Hogans heel turn in 1996 ( I have to agree because I knew that Hogan was going to be the 3rd man a month before the match).

Hogan's heel turn was the biggest of all time.
Purely because of who he was, it will always be the biggest of all time.
Look at the words I said. Barry Windhams heel turn in 88 was not expected at all compared to Hogans. People knew about Higans heel turn 6 weeks before it happened, Windhams heel turn was something no one saw coming
Okay, so I have a question for those in the know, cause I wasn't and never made an effort to really find out. I remember way back in the day I used to root for Sting and he would have short blond hair with neon clothes on. I lost interest in wrestling, and one day I turn on the TV to see that Sting transformed himself into the creepy crow version, carrying around a bat etc. So what happened and why did he change all of a sudden?
The nWo created a fake Sting to make WCW wrestlers think that he had joined them Lex Luger who was his kayfabe best friend (and actually in real life) accused Sting of attacking him although it was the fake Sting, the real Sting went into hiding for almost a year and at the suggestion of Scott Hall started wearing black and white face paint to make him look like The Crow movie character. Sting felt WCW betrayed him because they believed the nWo Sting was really him so that's why he went into hiding.
WWF: Mid-Late 90s. Bret Hart, Undertaker, Mick Foley, Shawn Michaels, Razor Ramon, Diesel, etc.
And then the up and coming Stone Cold, Rocky Maivia, Hunter Hearst Helmsley.
1995-1997 was actually one of my favorite periods. Loved the 'In Your House' PPVs, King of the Ring, Survivor Series, Royal Rumble, Summerslam, and of course WrestleMania.
Loved 1998-2001 as well but the period leading up to that got the ball rolling when WWF finally started to get the confidence to push younger talent.
One of my favorite pay per views of all time was SummerSlam 1997. Incredible opening match between Mankind and HHH in a steel cage, Stone Cold against Owen Hart was incredible and then Austin walking out after breaking his neck. Bret Hart against Undertaker with Shawn Michaels as guest referee.
The good old days of my youth.
Yeah, I think you're right about the CC. Maybe I was thinking of the local boxing circuit being at the Armory.
Lol define "many". When you have a fan at the live event try and climb into the fuckin' ring (non-kayfabe) and the entire crowd litter the ring with trash...something tells me that most didn't see it coming.

Ring of Honor
All time favorite wrestlers:
Currently enjoy watching New Japan Pro Wrestling the most.
How do you watch New Japan? I've been intrigued by it, but never really found a good source
And if the good Lord’s willin’,
I’m a keep on chillin’,
refillin’ and flyin’ high
How often did Big Time Wrestling appear in Lansing ? Detroit typically ran about every three weeks it seemed in the 1960's. Although that seemed to vary somewhat when The Sheik and Dick The Bruiser had their promotional battle in the early 1970's.
whoa sounds intense. thanks

I would love to see some American Dragon stuff. I only know his reputation pre WWE. The little I've seen of him seems awful.
I miss the Saturday morning wrestling tourneys.
Early ROH Dragon: http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/bryan-danielson-american-dragon-2-disc-set
Or "Danielson vs. The World": http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/bryan-danielson-vs-world-2-disc-set
Hard to go wrong with either.
A lot of shows/matches posted on Youtube. This show blew my mind, the first two matches suck but the rest is gold (the whole vid is 5 hours but lots of extra crap you can skip, about 3 hours of wrestling).
Edit: Skip the dark matches. I meant the first two matches of the actual card aren't great.
First 20 minutes: dark matches

He doesn't get to wrestle in as many long, good matches in WWE as he is currently stuck with Kane. He had some great matches with CM Punk in WWE.
Here are some of my favorite ROH matches of his.

Bryan Danielson vs KENTA
ROH World Championship Match.
Since I'm "out" as a wrestling fan on here in this thread, here's my 3 favorite matches ever:
Match 1 has a 2nd part you can find in the related videos to the right.
Match 3 is very low quality video but I can't find a better one right now...I urge you to seek out this match in better quality or try to get through this one because it's a great match.
From NWA WrestleWar 1989 Part One.
Intercontinental Championship - Champion: RandySteamboat

The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels - WWE Wrestlemania 25
Last one for now. If there is a demand at all I will post MOAR great matches.
Oh crap how did I forget about this recent classic? Rated 5 stars, match of the year and very easy to get into. Whether you love Cena or hate him (I'm not a huge fan), this is a great performance by he and Punk.
Fans young and old, casual and hardcore love this match.
I love this match! Enjoy!Heres a Download Link if you want it!: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=L5630CUJ
why am I not shocked that you consider yourself an authority on fake wrestling - the single most pathetic form of "entertainment" man has ever invented?
