    Can't remember what year exactly, and I am probably off on the matches, but

    AWA
    Nick Bockwinkle (c) vs Da Crusher in a cage (this may not have been my first card, but I do remember seeing this main event).

    Might be a different card, but also saw Billy Robinson vs Masked Superstar (or maybe one of the Destroyers) in a coalminers glove match.

    All at McNichols Arena in Denver.



    Let the old jokes begin...

    My first show was a WWF house show in 1991 in Las Vegas at the Thomas and Mack Center. I was 8. Don't remember much about the show except for Ultimate Warrior vs. The Undertaker. I also remember Ricky Steamboat, Earthquake, and Jimmy Snuka wrestling, but I don't remember who they wrestled.

    UK. Sheffield. Was about 8 or 9. Taker vs Ken Shamrock is all I remember. Pretty sure Taker beat him in an ankle lock or Ken had Taker in the ankle lock and the ministry ran in to stop the match. No idea about the rest of the card.

    Wow thank you! What an amazing card.

    I nailed it too. I was 8 1/2 at that point. Owen Hart died just a few weeks later too? Ergh.

    My first was as an adult. I was well and truly lapsed - maybe for 13 years. A couple of friends brought me to a WWE house show. Cena beat Ryback in a table match. Ugh.

    Everything I've seen since has been infinitely better... Though I did get to see Aksana that night.

    The first wrestling cards I attended were in the mid-70s in Augusta, GA at the Bell Auditorium. I can't recall any specific matches, but I saw the likes of Andre the Giant, Ole Anderson, Tommy Rich, Harley Race, Killer Khan, Pak Song, Mr. Wrestling II, Ernie Ladd, Thunderbolt Patterson, Stan Hanson, Rick Martel, Abdullah the Butcher, The Superstar, Super Destroyer, The Spoiler, Iron Mike Sharpe, and many others I can't remember off the top of my head. My dad took me to it many, many times. They had the matches every Monday night as a part of the Georgia Championship Wrestling NWA promotion. It was always a lot of fun. Especially being 7-9 years old and not knowing that it was all scripted.

    Edit to say that the one I regret missing out on the most during the time that my dad took me to those Monday night events was the one when Harley Race lost the NWA World Title to Tommy Rich. It was a very short lived title reign for Rich. I think it was back in the hands of Harley by the following weekend. I sure do wish I had been there to see it. I've watched it on YouTube and it looked to be a very well done match. No surprise there as Harley Race was easily one of the best in-ring performers of that era and young Tommy Rich was pretty good in his own right.

    Tommy Rich and Mr. Wrestling II were easily the biggest faces in the Georgia Championship Wrestling promotion during that era and as a kid growing up then, they were my favorites for sure.

    First show I saw was in December of 1991 a few weeks before Christmas at the Arco Arena.

    - Before going to this event, my two favorite wrestlers were Hulk Hogan and Ultimate Warrior. Watching it live, I somehow found myself enjoying Bret Hart in his match against The Mountie. Hart was the IC champ and this was when I started to notice the difference in "skill" in wrestling.

    - Recall seeing The British Bulldog wrestler Barbarian and just thinking "Wow, these guys are HUGE!"

    - Also, loved seeing Macho Man live, thought he had the best entrance and music and he beat Jake the snake
