Judgment Day 2000, at the end of the Iron Man Match. The Rock was getting punked out by the collective of Shane, Vince, Triple H, and HBK.

Suddenly, those creepy little girls hit the Tron and out rides our first look at the American Bad Ass Undertaker, and thousands upon thousands of 'not-all-there-teeth-wise' Kentuckians went crazy.

Mine is small potatoes next to some of these, but I did have the privilege and honor, in early 2000, of participating in a standing ovation for THE NATURE BOY WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

It was fun.

Oww! Steve - O, it looks like you could use a little help, like maybe a tag- team partner. Now Steve- O, I don't blame ya for not wanting to team with that scraggy looking Mankind but you never said nothin' about teaming up with the hippest cat in the land. Yo Steve- O, it's me- Dude Love and I'm coming to save the day. Oww! Have Mercy!

Then Dude walks down the ramp and the place EXPLODES.

Best. Pop. Ever.

It was an episode of Smackdown last summer - the first one after the Invasion PPV. Shane, Stephanie and Paul Heyman opened the show, introducing the long line of WWF and WCW champions that were in the Alliance at the time (Austin, Booker T, O'Haire and Palumbo, Billy Kidman, Rob Van Dam - and this was where they put the US Title onto Chris Kanyon.)

Austin took the mic and started cutting one of those great heel promos he was doing last year, bad-mouthing the WWF and Kurt Angle who he had just turned on at the PPV (and who he was about to head into a four month long fued with)... when Kurt Angle's music hit.

Now, this was Kurt Angle's first show in his hometown, Pittsburgh, since his face turn a month or so prior. If there's one thing I can say about Pittsburghers, it's that we've got a *fierce* hometown loyalty. Angle always got a mixed reaction here, even in the peak of his heel days. (Which is why he usually fights Rock when they're in town.)

But this time, coming out as face, the ovation was INSANE. I swear the pop went on for up to five minutes, the entire arena erupting into a sustained "ANGLE! ANGLE!" chant. Looking genuinely touched, he eventually got us to quiet down, and said something about being in his hometown - and the whole thing started over again. (This was edited way down on TV.)

And this was the show where Kurt Angle won the WCW Title from Booker T, so it was only the beginning... (When he actually finally beat Austin for the title here at the Unforgiven PPV, that was pretty big too, although pretty much everyone was confident he was going to win that one, between 9/11 and the fact that we were in Pittsburgh and all...)

Someone's got to cite the Montreal RAW right after WMX-8. Anyone remember the first free-TV MASSIVE Rock/Hogan pop and then the Naa naa naa naaa... naa naa naa naaa... Waaa-aaaa-aaave... gooo-oo-d-byyyyyye... chant?


Wish I could have been there, but a friend says it was INSANE.

I was there the Radicals debuted in Pittsburgh, while that place went crazy. The only pop I heard louder in that city was when the Penquins eliminated the Caps in overtime last year. Bar none that was the loudest pop, I have ever heard in that arena and I was there for Angle winning the WCW belt on Smackdown and all of Unforgiven 2001.

As for as wrestling goes, I went to Smackdown where Steph was introduced as the new GM and the crowd for Hogan, Edge and Rikishi was deafening. I don't know why but Hogan brings the eight year old kid out in you.

A Fan- Waiting for my next loud pop at Raw's 500th show.

    'not-all-there-teeth-wise' Kentuckians went crazy.

Ouch. That one put my eye out.

I was at JD 2000 and the pop was loud, but not near as loud as the one I heard Hogan receive ot KotR in Columbus in June. Thats the loudest I ever heard a wrestling pop in my life and I have been to over 20 WWF/WCW/NWA events in my life. Absolutely electric.

WIENER OF THE DAY! July 6, 2002!

The reception that Flair gets whenever he's in one of the old NWA towns (Charlotte, Richmond, etc.) is always pretty special.

I was born in a manger, like that other guy. You know, he wore a hat?

i gotta definately go with the hogan - rock wmx8 match. it was almost a 20 minute long sustained pop, and the crowd went absolutely NUTS for everything in the match. the biggest pop... when hulk hulked-up. the place just went absolutely BONKERS (me included). still is a great match to watch today, workrate be damned.

honorable mention to christian vs the rock from raw on september 3rd (i think) of last year. the crowd was divided on who to cheer for, and there were super loud "CHRISTIAN!" chants for the whole match, something i've never witnessed before! more honorable mention to the christian heel turn that happened later that night, as it was HUGE heel heat.

non-wrestling, i'll give it to the maple leafs awesome third overtime victory over the senators in this years stanley cup quarterfinals. i had never been to a hockey game before and holy crap, it was great. 8th row seats behind the net and an amped, electric, JACKED 18,000 ontario hockey fans made it a damn crazy atmosphere. i jumped out of my seat (as it was right in front of me) when gary roberts scored the goal. too bad the great victories were so short-lived.

this is a good topic, i like to relive awesome memories like the ones above.

... you always remember your first:

In 1987, one week before Starrcade, the NWA put on what I believe was their first-ever show in the New York area, at Nassau Coliseum.

Keep in mind that these were guys who up to that night we had only seen on TV, AND that this was my first-ever live event. That being said, I'm here to tell you --

The wall of noise that exploded with the first notes of "Iron Man" was the loudest thing I've ever heard in an indoor arena, and it lasted all through the Road Warriors' entrance and introduction. End-of-the-world loud.

I was at Wrestlemania x-7 and the pop Austin got when his music hit was just insane. But even better was the even more insane pop he got when he won the title, especially considering he had just truned heel.

Loudest ovation for a wrestling event I've ever been to was probably during the introductions of Team WWF in the main event at Invasion.

People were singing along to "No Chance In Hell." People counted down with the Y2J countdown. And when the glass finally shattered and Austin came out, the place just LOST IT. That was a hell of a lot of fun to a part of.

Hogan's seven minute standing-O in Montreal where he wasn't allowed to speak...

Bret at Mayhem, after winning that belt...

And, on the last RAW before the deadly game tournament in Dallas, I think it was when they used to tape week A Raw live and then tape the next week's Raw the tuesday after (week B Raw). Anywho...I'm in Dallas, and this is when Vince was trying to make it seem like he no way no how wanted Rock-O in the deadly game..So he had to to be in the tourney. I was loving, Rock was positioned as a major hand and a super face for the first time, and he got an okay match out of Bossman, and got a mega-pop, but when the allegedly crippled VKM got out of his wheelchair and freakin' slapped the Gr8 one, and got R. Bottomed...The place went bananas, to quote Gorilla "Will You Stop" Monsoon. Then...It goes up another fucking octave when he PPL's ELBOWS Vince...Your ears were bleeding when that elbow made contact

My top live pops had to be (descending order):

5)The sustained heat for Jerry Lynn and RVD at ECW Hardcore Heaven 99'(? don't know the year) where the crowd seemed seriously split as to who to cheer.

4) The Austin gun incident with Vince at a RAW I went to. And the numerous amount of stunners Vince received once the cameras turned off.

3)When Chyna pinned HHH on the RAW before Summerslam which heralded the return of Mankind, the crowd was in shock and didn't realize there would be two more matches with the number 1 contendership on the line that night.

2) When Hogan fought Flair at a WCW house show and "won the title" only to have it stripped by Lil' Naitch who then subsequently got taken to school by the master, Hollywood.

1) The Honky Tonk Man hitting Adrian Adonis with a guitar at an indie show...


1) The Stone Cold .vs. Dude Love OVER THE EDGE 98 match. I was sitting third row, and they brawled right next to me. That match was one of the most emotionally charged pieces of Sportz Entertainment I've ever seen. The crowd was seriously drained after Undertaker chokeslammed the Stooges through the announce tables and Austin retained the title. Great match, great experience, great live crowd.
