I started watching the WWF right after his feud with Snuka. For me, he's right up there with Hogan and Piper in terms of defining the wrestling of my childhood.

A friend and fellow wrestling fan asked me the other day, “What is your all time favorite wrestling promotion?” My knee-jerk reaction was to blurt out WCW, but I told him to give me a day or two.
