1993, the year of WrestleMania IX and Yoko v Luger main-eventing Summerslam? Really?

 

1992 was a better year (Royal Rumble, WrestleMania and Summerslam were all better in 1992 than 1993) and, for me, it was the best year of the period you mention. 1998-2001 was a better period in general though (for me at least).

90, 91, 92. Hogan, savage, warrior, perfect, rude, l.o.d., slaughter having to wear a bullet proof vest. 93, 94 and 95 were really bad for them I think. it started to pick up in 96, shawn michaels had some great matches. michaels vs mankind at mindgames is still one of my favourite matches to this day.

There was a great little skit (during the release of the Rise & Fall of WCW DVD) where Dusty Rhodes was with DX shilling the product and looking at some bad ideas in the company, when it was brought up that WCW overtook WWE and ran a lead from 1996-1998 (when Shawn was on top) and then WWE started the fightback after WrestleMania XIV, which was the day after Shawn's last match.

I know its all opinion based but 93...wow, that was one of the worst years of that era.

 

The mid to late 80's for me, hard to pick a year...I'd probably have to go with the entire 88/89 Mega Powers arc, it was awesome. Best year of the 90's was 1990. Warriors championship win and run, the best Rumble, Mania, SummerSlam & Survivor Series EVER all in the same year? Thats unreal.

I think it must have hurt his pride that the Attitude Era really kicked off after his first retirement, when he, as part of the original DX, laid the groundwork for that mentality, but had to miss out on the whole thing.

i think it was out of shawn,s hands staying around in WWF in the attitude era [ injury or not ] , everyone in the locker room hated him and wanted him gone

I understand why you say WWF 1993 was lame but that was the year of change....Hogan was history and new stars were shaping the future....thanks for replying, I,m grateful

If he wasn't injured, he would have remained a major part of main-event scene and the leader of DX, although I believe The New Age Outlaws and X-Pace would still have joined after WMXIV.

My favourite wrestler ever is Hogan, so Hogan being history and a bunch of mid carders taking over didn't fill me with excitement I'll be honest.

 

And an massively overweight Shawn Michaels vs a washed up Mr Perfect in a match with a lame finish at SummerSlam wasn't anything to write home about either.

true what your saying but shawn,s attitude had become unbearable in WWF ....check out BAM BAM BIGELOW SHOOT on youtube, shawn was in trouble with everyone so I can,t see how he could have stayed in WWE/F

What I will give 1993 credit for is the great King of the Ring PPV; three really good Bret Hart matches and a better-than-expected Hogan v Yoko rematch (which Hogan deserves credit for in relation to the amount of offence Yokozuna had and that he appeared outmatched the whole way through - essentially, Yokozuna was the one who killed Hulkamania in the WWF).

Because he was the top dog, DX were a merchandise-selling machine, the rematch with Austin would have been huge business and Shawn had been displaying that attitude for over 2yrs at the point he left, so it obviously didn't come into play then.

Why would he change his opinion of the SummerSlam match based on a house show event that is completely separate?

Perfect was washed up after he retired in 1991. He had good matches occasionally, generally when he was carried by other good wrestlers, but he was done bro. Shawn may have pulled a good match out of him on a house show just like Bret did at KotR, but overall, he was horrible after 1991.

:lol Mate, are you actually reading what I'm writing or are you ignoring it? Yes, he was horrible after 1991 but he could still have the occasional good match with the right guy, thats what I just said...so you're agreeing with me!
