That’s what made wrestling so awesome for kids, they didn’t worry about what was possible or fake, they didn’t keep up on all the latest rumors or spoilers via the internet, if there was even an internet around back then. Kids could just enjoy the shows each week, pick which wrestler they were going to be among their friends, and usually, beat the heck out of each other until Mom came in and shut that nonsense down.
So let’s go back in time and revisit some of the things that all young pro wrestling fans probably thought about at one time or another, some of these beliefs may pertain to the 80s or 90s, while others will be considered timeless.
10. The Undertaker Was Terrifying
Back at the 1990 Survivor Series, Undertaker made his debut as the mystery member of Ted DiBiase’s survivor series team and he was not one to mess with. Kids in the crowd stared as this giant creep slowly slink by them and proceeded to destroy the other team. Fast forward to the 1991 Survivor Series were Undertaker defeated crowd-favorite Hulk Hogan for the WWF title, and kids could be seen crying in the crowd, as their beloved hero was destroyed by this dead weirdo.
Lightning, caskets, graveyards, and being buried alive, Undertaker has always been considered one of the creepier wrestling gimmicks and amazingly, one of the longest running gimmicks ever, currently at 25 years.
