    He first came around when I was really into WWF.  Crazy that he has been in it all these years.

    Taker is the GOAT. Been a main eventer since day 1 and Is still 30 years later. Handed a gimmick that’s almost as cartoonish as any in wrestling history and made it legit.

    The Undertaker thing was great.  Having Paul Bearer with him was lame.

    i remember being in gym class in grade 9, our teacher had us pick basketball teams, and we were allowed to pick a team name. 

    i named our team The Undertakers. one of my classmates said "someone watched wwf superstars on saturday". it had been his debut, and i was hooked.

    I loved what Paul Bearer added to the Kane and Mankind feuds. That turn in the boiler room brawl match was epic. Also, distinctly remember the Taker vs Taker storyline and how Paul Bearer basically sold the whole think by himself.

    I know this will be unpopular given the last few posts, but I thought the Undertaker was boring as shit for the first like 7 years. Around 1997, he became entertaining for me (underrated title run from the Dead Man that year by the way, along with the two masterpiece Shawn matches). But before that, I wasn't into it at all. I admired his acting ability to play the zombie character. But otherwise, everything the Undertaker was involved with from his debut up until Mankind's debut kinda sucked. The Hogan title change in '91 was sort of interesting I guess. Feuds with Giant Gonzalez, Kamala, The Million Dollar Corporation, the fake version of himself, and Yokozuna? Not so interesting.

    i can see this side of it. I think i honestly at that point in my life (angry young teen), the undertaker spoke to me. in the same way at the time heavy metal spoke to me. 

    if he had appeared as a character later than that, i may have had the same opinion.

    I'll say one thing though about early 90's Undertaker, while I wasn't too into watching it on TV, I used to attend a lot of live events and TV tapings as a kid, and it was cool as hell to see him live. And speaking of his good acting, I once saw a match at TV taping between him and Jerry Lawler (probably around '93). Dude, you would have thought Lawler was in a horror movie. He was visibly trembling throughout the match, always running and hiding, and begging for mercy. Not that any of that could stop him from getting tombstoned and pinned lol. 

    1997 saved him for me. By then, Austin was on the rise, the nWo and ECW were running hot, and it seemed like something like the Undertaker could have seen it's time pass. But no, they let him on the mic, they made the great Kane storyline, and I can't stress how many great matches he had that year. Some really good PPV title defenses against Mankind, Austin, Vader, and Bret (where he loses the title with Shawn as the ref). And then his first match with HBK followed by the Hell in the Cell match with HBK. He transitioned well from the hokey early 90's bullshit to the great late 90's stuff.

    Anyone have this weeks wresting numbners?

    I'm curious on how AEW did.  Main event was my Boy Orange Cassidy vs Le Champion.  Fantastic match.

    Watching WWE Extreme Rules. 3 things. 1. The eye for eye match was the worst thing ever. 2. The Woman are continuing to kill it. Both in ring and over all entertainment. Sasha and Bayley are on fire. 3. If I’m paying for a subscription to WWE network why am I watching an Applebee’s commercial. Where’s the commercial free option? On Ziggler match now. 
    Peace,Love and Pearl Jam.

    I've been saying the commercial thing for years. It was happening before the network

    I missed it. Pretty much just home from work. Yeah i did hear the eye for eye match was bad, but also heard the Strowman/Wyatt match was also real bad. Glad Cesaro and Shinsuke won the tag team belts.

    AEW put on a good show last night. 
    I love MJF.  Such talent.
    Thoroughly enjoyed the tag team match w the Young Bucks and Butcher and the Blade.  

    Highlight was seeing my boy Cassidy at the end.  It looks like AEW is promoting him hard now.  Fan favorite I guess?

    I wore out this VHS as a kid. Loved the venue. Bret’s my all-time favorite so of course I love the main-event. And I’m probably in the minority, but I like this Warrior/Savage match more than their WM7 match.
