You know over the Years we've missed plenty of Wrestlers Careers whether it was due to us not watching Wrestling at the time, or before your birth, or you just wasn't watching that Company's Product. For whatever reason you have, I know for sure when I watch a Match from the 80's or 90''s that I might of missed I'm like damn I wished I saw them in their prime and experience how great he or she was. Here are a few off the top of my head I wish I got to see.


Bruno Sammartino. Their isn't a day when I talk to my Parents they don't bring him up even before Pedro Morales being both proud Puerto Ricans. Bruno represented the working man, and the people who came from nothing and made something of themselves. Humble, tough in the Ring, oozing charisma from head to toe, for sure I would of been a Bruno fan so much if I was in his era.


Shinsuke Nakamura in NJPW. Yup when I started watching NJPW again, he was just signed by the WWE so imagine how much greatness of I missed from him over there at that time. When I stopped watching he was up and comer, so it was to my great surprise that I see him again and he looks and feels different. When I saw him in the Thriller Jacket for the first time my heart flew away to the Heavens wondering damn I missed alot.​

Considering I was born in '96 and I've watched as much wrestling as I have, there's a LOT that would qualify here for me, most of the Attitude Era stars while I remember watching them, I was too young so I'd throw them in there. Then of course you got Flair, Macho, Hogan and stuff. Top ones would probably be Bruno as well, Vader, and Misawa

Yeah Misawa era's too. I got to see KENTA and Kenta Kobashi later in the 2000's, but boy their stuff early on was damn near amazing especially Kobashi. Joe vs Kobashi still one of my favorite Matches ever.

Can I just say the territory days as a whole? Mainly so I could go to shows every week and see big stars.

My dad talks about it all the time and how awesome it was. I saw some of the stars later from that time, but watching them back then in what was their prime AND getting to see some of them live. Oh god sign me up.

Sweet Daddy Siki....would've loved to witness a guy so brave he'd play a flamboyant black man in Klan Kuntry.

Stu Hart to see if he really was any good.

Ernie Ladd just to hear his promos.

Danny Hodge, just to see if he was as great as Jim Ross describes him as.

Mox's pre WWE run. I had shitty internet back before he came to WWE, so I didn't even know he existed cos there was no way for me to watch other wrestling companies. I actually had some loser tell me I wasn't a real Mox fan cos I didn't know him before WWE lmao. Like, I'm sorry for not having any possible way to know who he was before WWE? :lmao

Speaking from Moxley fan before his WWE Days and still I'm today, but back then woof his work in the Ring chaotic to say the least, but his Promo work especially was mesmerizing. I feel on the level of someone like Raven or Jake the Snake Roberts. He has improved alot since then. You see why we went to AEW so he can get back to who he was.

I just mentioned it in the Shawn Michaels thread, but I started watching WWF/E regularly around the time after WM14 when Shawn left so I missed his 90s run, I wish I could go back in time and watch all of his stuff live when it was happening then.

Bret Hart is another one for me, I wasn’t introduced to him until his WCW run and while I did enjoy it from what I have seen it doesn’t compare to his WWF days.

CM Punk.

I was around when he was big but I only really started following wrestling like a year ago, lol. I had watched individual bits and pieces when I was younger but never actively followed wrestling.

I only ever remember Punk as a heel back in the same days that Dolph/Vicki was a thing. WIsh I'd been following around the time of his leave-the-company angle.

Also, D-Bry when he won at Wrestlemania.

From the older days, I'd have loved to follow the entire attitude era - Stone Cold, Rock etc.

( I say older - they were still active when I was young but were the generation before Punk and co.)

I also kind of wish I'd been around during the early undertaker days to see how they built his character to where it is today.
