    I haven't watched any wrestling since the end of 2006. I think the first half of December to Dismember was the last event I watched.

    I think the last Wrestlemania I watched was the Rock vs Stone Cold for the title and McMahon came down to the ring, knocked out the Rock with a chair and draped Austin over for the win....I think. I remember at the time that was very much a WTF moment, but I haven't really watched it since. Was pretty big on it around that time for a couple of years but I finally became dissilluisioned with it I suppose.

    If I still had Sky Sports, being a late night guy, I'd probably still watch it these days. Say what you want about Wrestiling, it was still Prime Entertainment. Like Hollyoaks, but with 'men' haha

    I saw Hulk Hogan once, at the start of the 90s. And quickly realised that it was all just an act, there is no real sport there at all. That's why I still occasionally watch a boxing match, but haven't seen a wrestling one in 18 years.

    To be fair, the WWE dropped the pretense of it being an actual competitive sport a long time ago. They now call themselves number 1 in Sports Entertainment, which roughly translates to being Hollyoaks for men. I sat through all the matches bar the last one and I have to say, WWE sucks now. I don't know if it is because they don't have the big personalities that they used to have or its because I am now the same age or even older than some of these wrestlers, that all the stuff they spout out is more than a little ridiculous.

    Also, all the people that I used to enjoy when I was younger, are now really old and decrepit. I saw Brett Hart (52) beat up Vince McMahon (64). An old man beating a pensioner. It was like 'The Wrestler' was actually real. They had a segment with the 2010 Wrestling Hall of fame inductees, and you will not have seen a sorrier bunch of people. £15 well spent.

    NOT!

    It was Vince McMahon's insistence on getting in the ring that pretty much killed it for me 10 years ago lol
