and witness ANY pay-per-view, RAW, Smackdown, etc.. ringside, which one would it be?

I would have to choose Wrestlemania 20 because the atmosphere was awesome and I wish I could have experienced that.

Your thoughts?

WrestleMania III, because there'd never been anything like it.

You can say that again. I watched Wrestlemania III on closed circuit tv at the Long Beach Convention Center and it was amazing. Unless you were actually able to get into the Silverdome, there's nothing like watching a PPV on the big screen with a few thousand other marks. The only other show I can think of would have been that Canadian Stampede In Your House...

I get the feeling this thread's gonna get nuked, but why not put my two Canadian cents in beforehand...

...and to be honest, I'd much rather revisit the glory days of wrestling that I remember as a kid, back in the early 90s.

I remember taking an exciting trip to downtown Toronto three weeks before the day, to the Maple Leaf Gardens to pick up a $25.00 ticket to see WWF wrestling there...and that would get a damn near close to ringside seat.

No fireworks, no special effects, nothing. Man, what a good time that was.

Nowadays, $25 won't get you bleacher seats.



The SOK has seen the following cinematic masterpieces so far this year:

Eurotrip; Scooby Doo 2; Shrek 2; The Ladykillers; Spider-Man 2; Anchorman.

I've been to 2 Wrestlemanias, 2 Great American Bashes, ringside for houseshows, other events. I'd say Wrestlemania, my dad and I went to one together. I know it is corny but it was a connection we had. It wasn't so much the matches at times, it was the feeling in the arena. My father died in February of 1998, the last thing we saw together was a WWF PPV on TV.I forget which one.

If you're gonna list, at least say why.

I would have gone to Wrestlemania instead of going to see it on CCTV. CCTV was really cool - I saw it at the Star Theatre in Merriville, Indiana and paid about 15 bucks or so, as I recall. The food was bad and expensive and if I had really gone, it would have been MSN and New York and the whole thing.

I did go to see wrestlemania 2, which was very, very cool. I was at the Rosemont Horizon part, which included the Battle Royal, which was my only time seeing Andre. I also go to see the Bulldogs live, another cool thing. But that was the last live Wretslemania I got to see. Turns out the only one.

I guess if I had to pick a show in the past I hadn't seen but should've, it would have been whatever show that Hogan and The Warrior had their good PPV match. Was that like WM 5 or 6? That one. Love the Hulkster, even now.



Now, is it ok for me yell THEATRE! in a crowded fire?

This isn't a 'list thread' just a statement of what you would have liked to see live, but obviously couldn't.

Hey those are the shows I'd want to go back and see for obvious reasons...they all are significant in their own way...

Capitol Combat! ROBOCOP RULES! Oh wait, I was there, nevermind.

Actually I would like to have been ringside for Lawler v Kauffman.

ANd whichever PPV had Paul E's Dangerous Alliance v WCW in the WAR GAMES cages.

I think that I would have liked to be at the WCW PPV (Starcade 98 I think) where Goldberg lost his first match, losing to Kevin Nash. I know that it would have been quite a "holy shit" moment for me, but I don't know if I would have cheered out of pure surprise. I do know that while I didn't care for either guy, it would have been cool to see the reaction from the crowd there.

Plus, IIRC, that was the show with Kidman (a favorite wrestler of mine back then) lasting through two great matches to get the Cruiserweight title. So this would have been a PPV to see live.

Part of me would say Wrestlemania III...but I was actually there on the aisle about halfway back, so at least I got to see it, ringside or no ringside.

I'd say WM 18, mostly because of the Hogan-Rock crowd reaction.

*edit - spelling*

Reunion Arena Dallas on X-Mas Night '82 to see Kerry vs. Flair turn into the night the Freebird/Von Erich War began.
Omni in Atlanta September '85 to see Nikita vs. Flair become the night the Horsemen began to ride.
And, as long as I was properly armed, in either Puerto Rico or the Dominican Republic on one of the nights Flair dropped the belt in order to get out of the building alive, just to experience that sort of atmosphere at a wrestling match.

In no particular order:

Wrestlemania III: Just watched this again last week. Just seeing Hogan slam Andre would have been worth the price of admission, if you ask me.

Wrestlemania VI: I was a huge Warrior mark, and pretty much hated Hogan. Seeing Hogan lose would have made 1990 a great year, in this kid's eyes.

I wanted to see that main event soooo badly. And I always had to wait a few months, for it to come out on video.

I would have liked to have seen some of the notorious ones: King of the Ring '98, Survivor Series '97, just to say that I was there.

I agree totally about not wanting to see Austin/Hall...at least yet. Austin should have gotten Hogan or Nash for such a big event.
