Oh man, flashbacks ... must have been '85 or so. Went to the Cap Center and saw Jessie "the body" Ventura rassle Hulk Hogan. Andre the Giant and Sgt. Slaughter were on the card too. Sat about 6 rows from ringside. Had a buzz goin' on that day
That's really stacked. I saw one of the last events ever at the Cap Center. In fact, it was probably the last wrestling event. House show in '98 around Unforgiven.
I didn't even realize at the time how incredibly stacked that was with legends.
Dude Love (Mick Foley) vs. Steve Austin was the main event, and Kane vs. The Undertaker was the penultimate match, and Triple H vs. Owen Hart was on the card as well.
I saw four Hall of Fame bound guys, and two more greats. It's like when I saw Mike Mussina vs. Randy Johnson and didn't appreciate it until later.
I remember that freaker Marc Mero flipping everyone off. I was so pissed.
That's what made the attitude era so fun/unique. Definitely a far cry from those wrestling shows in the 80's.
