I will always remember watching Hulk Hogan slam Andre the Giant at WrestleMania III. I will also always remember the Ultimate Warrior beat Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania VI. Every Monday Night was filled with epic drama from these larger-than-life characters. Monday Night Raw and Monday Nitro always started at 6pm (pacific time) and ended at 8:00pm. At least they were supposed to, but they always ran over time. I will never forget flipping back and forth trying not to miss any of the action, especially when 8pm rolled around, because both shows would reach their peak at the end and you couldn’t get stuck watching one show or else you would miss the end of the other one. This was back in the day before there was this little thing called TiVo, so once you missed it you couldn’t watch it later at your leisurely convenience.
The other memory I have of wrestling is when my dad and I went down to rent the little box to put on top of your TV, so you could get the pay-per-views. We didn’t do this a ton because it cost money, but we would occasionally do it, and that always meant it was a big deal. The last pay-per-view we ever ordered together was WCW’s Bash at the Beach in 1996. The day Hulk Hogan turned heel. I will never forget when he came out and it looked like he was going to save some wrestlers from getting beat up, but instead he joined in the attack and thus, became a bad guy. Afterwards, he was talking on the mike and the entire crowd was throwing their food and drinks at him. They hit him in the middle of the ring. Thus, birthing what became known as the NWO or New World Order of Pro Wrestling. This was the last pay-per-view we ever ordered. My dad refused to watch Pro Wrestling afterwards and to this day, is still disgusted with it. From then on, it was banned in the Carriker household. I missed a good five years of wrestling because of it.
