Same reaction here, Rigs. I dropped off from watching it in when around 14. In the 80's, I watched it a few times for comic relief (George "the animal" and all that) but found the modern stuff from the 90's boring. All steroidish looking, no clear-cut heroes/villains, and I had far outgrown really enjoying it anyway. Those were magical times for a kid, in the earlier eras.

BTW, on YouTube there's a clip of the first professional wrestling match ever fimed, around 1929, if I remember that right. it was strange, because it looked like they were actually WRESTLING :-).
