Now, that was my favorite era of the WWF...1984-1988! I have many fond memories of watching Championship Wrestling (WOR Channel 9, New York City) on Saturday nights and WWF Prime Time Wrestling (USA Network) on Monday nights with my dad!
The good thing about the old days is that they seemingly had an angle for everyone on the roster. These days, that's certainly not the case.
I've always said the day WCW went out of business, that was the day wrestling died. WWE is a hot mess now, but at least there's some great independent promotions (namely Chikara) putting on outstanding shows.
