I was just wondering what you guys have stashed away in terms of anything associated with wrestling. How many T-shirts do you have, whats your DVD collection like or if you recored shows how many tapes/hours of programming do you have just to see how it compares to mine. I've been lucky since my Dad's job entails getting loads of blank video cassettes. I have estimated my collection at around 500 streching from 1995-2004. I never watched ECW or WCW but i'm sure some of you have loads more footage.
Tapes: - Beyond The Mat - Royal Rumble 2000 - Wrestlemania 2000 - No Mercy 1999 - Judgment Day 2000 - Best Of Wrestlemania (I-XV) - Best Of Survivor Series (87-98) - Summerslam 98 - the occasional Smackdown that I end up taping over
Action figures: - Chris Jericho - Chris Benoit
Toy belts: - Smoking Skull belt - old Lightheavyweight title belt - Undisputed title belt (current WWE title belt)
Welcome to Wienerboard. Anything by Diane Warren will result in your death.
T-shirts: 1 Raven ("Quote the Raven Nevermore" shirt, I actually got extra credit for wearing it to English class one day) 3 Rock 2 nWo red and black (one is just the nWo logo in read, the other has all the member on it 1 Sting (it actually could be considered nWo also becuase it's the red face painted Sting) 2 Stone Cold
Action Figures 5 Chris Benoits (one is the old WCW crappy figures, the rest are the more recent more realistic looking WWE ones. One came with a jukebox that plays his theme, one comes with a medal because it was when he was feuding with Kurt Angle over his medals. One is Benoit givng the Crossface to Jericho, and one is Jericho putting Benoit in the Lion Tamer 3 Chris Jerichos - Jericho putting Benoit in Lion Tamer, Jericho putting Angle in Lion Tamer, and Benoit putting Jericho in Crossface 1 Kurt Angle - being put in the Lion Tamer. 1 Raven (WWE) 1 Eddie Guerrero (WWE) 3 Scott Hall (two WCW and one when he came to WWE in the nWo) 2 Kevin Nash (WCW) 1 Buff Bagwell (WCW) 1 Curt Hennig (WCW) 1 Stone COld (WWE) 1 Bret Hart (WCW) 1 Edge and Christian (I don't know why but they came with a guitar, umbrella, a couple of hats and a video camera) 1 Molly Holly 2 Rocks (one is in scuba gear and one is a really really muscular figure, he's as big as my Incredible Hulk Videos/DVDs -Ric Flair Collection -Shawn Michaels from the Vault -Mic Foley's Greatest Hits and Misses -Monday Night Wars -Best of Chris Benoit, best of Chris Jericho, and best of Los Gringos Locos VHS that i bought from some webpage -about 120 6 hour VHS tapes, probably about 90% is episodes of Raw and Smackdowns -about 100 CDs, mostly ROH and TNA shows

Does this constitute a "big list"? Ah, hell, I'll give in:
1 WWF T-Shirt (in the bottom of my drawer): "Punishment is a far better thing to give than to receive"
1 OLD WWF Ring Figures (all old ones unless otherwise stated): Shawn Michaels (minus one arm), Marty Jannetty, Luke and Butch, Ax and Smash, Honky Tonk Man, Roddy Piper, Jake Roberts, Virgil, Big Bossman, 2 Ted Dibiase's (one in full suit, one in just tights), Randy Savage, Razor Ramon, Ultimate Warrior, Brutus Beefcake, Warlord, 2 Jim Duggans (one with just tights, one with singlet), Giant Gonzalez (how rare is THAT?), Bret Hart and Mankind (both Jakks). I used to play with those figures until a year or two ago. I've spent countless journals and pieces of paper writing the results on them.
DVD's: Flair Collection, Monday Night Wars.
Tapes: None. There might be random shows that I've taped in between TV movies or episodes of CSI or something. I think I may still have the Smackdown! in Iraq episode. I used to have the Owen Hart RAW tribute, but I just found out a few weeks ago that I must've taped over it.
Books: Goldberg's auto., Both of Mick's autos., Dynamite Kid's auto., Wrestlecrap, Sex Lies and Headlocks, Long Bomb (well, it kinda has to do with wrestling), Pro Wrestling: Sport and Spectacle (kinda weird book that I've only managed to get half-way through).
On 1wrestling.com, they have a story about WWE spending 8 million on a ad agency to develop a campaign to draw back the older fans in the over 30 demo. Could this mean the return of the older stars for one last run?
