Huh? When the hell did this happen
I can't even remember the exact time frame. I just remember he was being an ass to Steph and she had to do what he said or something. So he made her wear one of those concession trays things with all the snacks and later on they were in the ring and she was *****ing at him about it. So he said she could take it off and she was trying to put got stuck so he went to help her but it ripped her shirt off with it. Totally blew my mind at the time.

definitely HBK breaking with Jenetty.
The Snake biting on Macho Man's arm has to be my most holy **** moments as a kid.
One other spot i loved besides the obvious Hell in a cell moments, was Angle vs Shane in a King of the ring PPV.... that was crazy intense lol. I remember angle trying to put him through a glass several times and it wasnt just working. He kept bouncing on the glass and on the floor. it was so good.

I had forgotten about that, somehow. I totally agree. That freaked me the hell out.

Montreal Screwjob

Shane Douglas throwing down the NWA World's Heavyweight Championship and proclaiming himself the ECW World Heavyweight Champion

Steve Austin defeating Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania XIV for the WWF Championship

Steve Austin's blood-covered face as he screams while in the Sharpshooter vs Bret Hart at Wrestlemania 13

Edge's spear off a ladder to Jeff Hardy who was hanging from the Tag Title belts down to the mat at Wrestlemania X-Seven

The final Nitro where Vince appeared on WCW Television announcing that he had "bought his competition"

Steve Austin's promo at King of the Ring 1996 "Talk about your psalms, talk about John 3:16...Austin 3:16 says I just whipped your ass"

Goldberg's first loss to Kevin Nash at Starrcade 1998 (Not a fan of the finish, but I was so sick of Goldberg at this point I was just hoping he'd lose in some way, shape, or form)

Bret Hart becoming the first ever 5 time WWF Champion

hmm

The Montreal Screwjob
Hogan joins the NWO
Austin 3:16
Randy Savage destroys Ricky Steamboat with the ring bell

And the winner

I was sitting in the crowd at the Stampede Pavilion watching the returning British Bulldogs facing off against Karachi Vice. 10 minutes into the match I think Gamma Singh hit Dynamite Kid in the back, Kid turned around and saw Davey Boy Smith standing there and Dynamite lost the match.

Later in the night Davey Boy was in a singles match and was getting beaten down by Karachi Vice. Dynamite comes down to help out his partner but instead suckers Davey Boy and then comes off of the top rope with a heavy chain busting his former tag team partner open. This sparked an incredibly bloody feud and was one of the last great runs by the Dynamite Kid. What we didn't know was that there were real life problems and hatred between Smith and Billington that caused the breakup of one of the great tag teams.

It is comedic gold, to say the least.

Chris Benoit killing his family in cold blood is also up there considering the after math has regulated un needed brutality to get over.

Hogan -Andre

Bruno- Superstar

Rock- Hogan

Any Kobashi match from the 90's.
The Dynamite/Tiger Mask matches truly do stand the test of time , phenominal.

Goldberg/Lesnar match at Wrestlemania is another one I will never forget , not because it was a good match but because of the crowd reaction , never seen anything like it at the time.

Not "defining" but memorable all these years and still one of my favorite moments. I was 7 when this happened, and I loved Demolition:

I'd like to add -

Shane'O'Mac doing anything. He was an awesome character, either as a suck-up to his dad, or as a rebellious son, or even as a businessman. Within the context of matches, maybe 2nd only to Mick Foley in terms of full-on hardcore spots in the WWE/F.

Cool thread. I think all of mine have been mentioned. Lol. Don't know if I remember one specific moment (because I was so young) but the stuff with Hogan, Piper, and Mr T. was really cool to me at the time. Then Hogan-Andre. Also Hogan-Warrior. When Scott Hall first appeared on Nitro. When Nash beat Goldberg. I SO wanted that streak to end, and I liked Nash, so it was perfect. Seeing Mankind get thrown off the cell was just amazing. I could not believe that when I saw it.

80's-90's wrestling:

Steamboat-Savage WM3
Andre the Giant having a hart attack when Jake Roberts put Damien on him
Brain Busters winning the belt against Demolition
Bret @ KOTR (best performance ever by a wrestler)
Owen-Bret
Cobra biting Savage on the arm
Undertaker debut

Attitude era:
Bret-Stone Cold I quit match
Taker-Mankind HIAC
Rock-Mankind I quit match
The Edge spear off the tall ladder but every TLC or ladder matches involving the Edge & Christian, Dudleys & Hardys were awesome.

PG era:
Nothing, it sucks

Agreed completely. Two of my favorite matches are Vince/Shane at WM X-7, and Shane/Kurt at King of the Ring in June 2001.

Underrated is the Shane Vs Test match at Summerslam.

Great call. This was (slightly) before my time, but my friends and I get together on a regular basis to watch classic wrestling matches and I nominated one of their matches recently. Here is the list of matches we have watched: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...J14/edit?pli=1

As for defining moments, I'll try to keep this personal:

1. Wrestlemania 2 ad - This is my first wrestling memory that I can still vividly remember.
2. Randy Savage vs. Tito Santana (2/24/86) - First match that I can remember watching (there were others, but this is my earliest memory). I remember crying in bed about the ending.
3. Savage crushing Steamboat's larynx. Totally horrified me.
4. Hart Foundation defeating British Bulldogs via Danny Davis. Again, tears.
5. Formation of the Mega Powers.
6. Monday Night RAW on USA Network. I didn't have cable tv so this signaled the first (93-96) of the many wrestling hiatus' that I have taken.
7. Hogan joining the NWO (first time I ever seriously considered WCW).

I believe you are talking about Chigusa Nagayo vs. Dump Matsumoto: Hair vs. Hair - AJW, August 28, 1985. We watched that during the last Cinco de Mayo party. Fantastic match. I don't have a copy, but I could probably get one from someone in our clique. It's on youtube. Highly highly recommended match.

Thats it!!!

The Girls were so ahead of their time back then. The emotion of the crowd. The entire crowd as crying when she was cutting her hair off. Nagayo was so damn good.

Interesting that you would mention that. When we watched it I had no knowledge about the match going in, and, from the aesthetics/quality of the video plus the sheer level of violence, I was under the impression that it was from the mid/late 90's. Afterwards, when they told me it was from 1985 my mind was blown and I honestly didn't believe them until I looked it up myself.

Around that time frame Meltzer was going off about the girls in Japan and how they were basicly on another level in terms of ring work. Now, this was when the E was in full Hulkamania mode. There was one tape made that was three hours long just filled with some of the best wrestling I have ever seen, one of which was a 60 minute broadway that was just spot after spot after spot with no rest holds, just a complete spot fest from the second it started until it ended and you could tell at the end they were both borderline stroke ready. I know Nagayo was on of the wrestlers in it.

I gotta find that tape.........
