this thread kinda died. I haven't been keeping up to date on wwe much, as I only watch ppv's, but everything Kevin Owens and Sami from what I've seen is great. Looking forward to Clash of champions and then road to wrestlemania begins!
I started watching WWE when I was a kid during the attitude era and grew up watching the rock and stone cold etc. and I remember the invasion era quite clearly. Then when I started comp I gradually stopped so around 2002/03, but I would still occasionally see some things, I remember seeing Khali debut and Santino Morella doing something. Also back in the early days of youtube I just to look up wrestling videos then got into hardcore compilation videos of stuff from japanese death matches and czw.
But it wasn't until I saw THAT pipebomb CM Punk video trending on youtube that I got back into WWE so it sucks now he's gone, to me it's like when rock or austin left. But since then I also got into indie wrestling, a lot of which is thanks to Grado and ICW, I first watched the Vice documentary on him and then BBC did a couple documentaries on ICW.
I wish I went to a WWE show as a kid but never did. So the first wrestling show I went to was ICW in london in 2016 and I've just delved deeper into the british indie scene ever since, which is more popular than in years and has been amazing, not just to watch but I've also met lot of new people through going to local shows. I started training to be a wrestler last year as well but time will tell if it's just following through on a pipedream I had as a kid or if it'll be a good career choice.
if it DOES work out just remember the name Walshy McWalsherson
