Best wrestling program ever! Enjoyed and grew up on as a kid!
6 April 2019 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

Remember growing up in the 80's and was a big wrestling fan, enjoyed the character and circuit that the "WWF" had and time to time every few months the league would put on a late night prime show at 11:30PM a special type on "NBC". Being young and to little to stay up late I would record the event on my VCR and watch later with great excitement it was like opening up a "Christmas" gift! And the shows did not let me down as the matches were top notch with feuds and grudges and it was hosted by the team of Vince McMahon and Jesse Ventura. Featured in all shows was Hulk Hogan mostly in the main event as always the championship would be on the line! Plus from time to time a cage match or tag team match would be featured. And the before the match interviews always got everything in the mood. This was so classic "World Wrestling Federation Entertainment" that it is an everlasting gem classic memory for me!
