    Saturday afternoons as a nipper: switching between Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks on ITV and the football scores on Grandstand before Final Score came on.

    Occasionally there'd be a double episode of Knight Rider or Airwolf and I wouldn't have to watch wrestling.

    The Ultimate Warrior body pressing Hulk Hogan: the bestest moment in fake sports eva!



    A close second would be Hogan body-slamming Andre the Giant.

    I remember watching Kendo Nagasaki getting his mask taken off, live on World of Sport, Saturday afternoon with Dickie Davis..

    My world was complete. Guy was even scarier without it.

    The first game of Rugby League (at the SCG) I saw was the final between the great St George side and Canterbury Bankstown in 1967.

    Canterbury won 12-11 knocking St George out after 11 consecutive premierships and then losing to South Sydney in the Grand Final.

    I still remember that Bob McCarthy intercept.

    Sorry wrong thread. When you mentioned Jack Gibson I automatically though NRL.

    Was probably 8 or 9 at the time. Great toys.


    Went to see the WWF on tour with my dad, while he dropped my older teenage sister off to see AC/DC as they were playing in a nearby city on the same night.


    Looking back, she did get the better deal.
