    My earliest memories are mid to late 80s. I vividly remember WrestleMania 3. So I would have been 6 or so. I have a picture when I was a baby sitting on my dad's lap watching WCW.

    Early 90s me and my brothers would watch WCW & WWF on tv for dinner.

    Saturdays were WCW always.

    Its crazy but as an adult I tend to look more fondly on the villains of my youth. Of course I still like a few babyfaces from back in the day, but I truly appreciate guys like Vader and Rick Rude now a days. It's a shame they don't really get their due until their gone. Nobody worked a guy over in the corner like Vader...nobody.

    Born in 1994 and my family used to watch it a lot, so I can't remember. I remember getting put in a lot of sharpshooters, and being chokeslammed and rock bottomed though.

    Yeah lol. I was happy that I got to see the end of Eddie Guerrero and Benoit’s time. But yeah all the attitude era I was catching bits and pieces when ever I could at friends places.

    Around 1982. I was a Hulkamaniac big time. My brothers used to tease me that it was fake but they watched too. Once I discovered NWA and WCCW I was far more into Ric Flair, Larry Zybsko, The Von Erichs. Loved all that shit. Even watched WWF still. Stopped after Ultimate Warrior got big and beat Hogan. Started watching again towards the tail end of the Monday night wars because my younger brothers were way into it. Then got sick of it about a year before Benoit done what he done. Now I'll maybe catch some Japan action at 3AM flipping channels but the American stuff is regurgitated soap opera crap now.

    The only things I can remember Jack Victory doing in WCW was being part of the Original Midnight Express with Paul E Dangerously as the manager, then he was a Russian Assassin but that was under a mask and then he was part of the Royal Family
    Is it possible youre mistaking Lord Littlebrook for Mr Fuji? lol
    He did carry a cane

    Earthquake squashing Damien was definitely first. That happened late spring of 1991 for sure while Shawn kicking Marty Jannetty was in January of 1992.

    PS, the first match I saw was Hogan/Warrior at my cousin's house and it got me hooked. The most memorable Hogan match, to this day, is still Hogan/Slaughter. Hogan has had many more epic matches and even more "memorable" matches but the Hogan/Slaughter match is etched in my brain. When I think of Hogan, I think of Hogan/Slaughter. And by 1992, I was tape trading as an 8 year old lol

    I remember the match made in heaven and the match made in hell and the mountie going to jail

    I wonder if maybe summer slam 91 is where I got hooked. if eq killin the snake is my earliest memory and that was spring 91 I think that lines up

    Its like concerts man its been so long and seen so much it all jumbles up

    Dude Thanks!!!! I've thought about this match over the years but never thought to look for it. Pretty cool seeing it again after all these years.
