As for my introduction...

Let's see. I'm 26. Got into wrestling the RAW after WrestleMania 20. My dad wasn't really a wrestling fan but he happen to have that on (maybe nothing else was on). I watched from 2004-2011 pretty consistently. Favorite wrestler is Eddie Guerrero hands down.

Hmm, I guess I could mention i preordered my first ever theater ticket in my life. December 15th Star Wars here I come!

Hey there. Guess I've been around since TEW 2005 came out so that's 12 almost 13 years ago now.

My name is Simon I'm almost 41 and I'm from NYC.

I have a day job (or really super early in the day job) with UPS to cover the bills. But I'm a published photographer for NY Magazine. I'm a published author of 3rd party work for Pathfinder/D&D, and I've been a professional wrestler for nine years now, although not even really popular enough to be known by anyone outside a small group of people in NYC.

I like this a lot!

29, was born on the east coast, live on the west coast. I came here when I got into TEW 2013, and since then, I've participated in several TEW drafts and tried to do several diaries that have flamed out while also dealing with some pretty awesome people.

I work in horse racing and handle digital media for a company based in New York (I telecommute from the west coast, which is awesome). I'm a huge sports fan, I own a small cat, and my hobbies include twice-a-week trivia at a bar frequented by Norm Macdonald.

Ahhh, well like I said I've been on this forum for almost 8 years but my first game was Extreme Warfare Deluxe. So yeah, very old school.

lol Yeah, I just post a random screenshot and updates on what is going on in my game. Pleased to meet y'all. Lurked for a long time then finally decided to join.

Older than 30 younger than 35. My name is Alan. I'm working in a call centre part time at the minute. Been a salesman, coach a junior football team from time to time.

I started off with WWE in the late 80's. Can still remember how it all started. Was at my Cousin house and his neighbour had a big collection of Nintendo games and videos. I ended up borrowing a lot of them. Left his place with one of those best of Hulk Hogan compilations, Wrestlemania 5, a Jerry Lawler and Kerry Von Erich USWA video. Became a Hulkamaniac right then, dude. There was a pre-match Savage promo that will never leave my mind. Telling Elizabeth she is in the wrong place at the right time, yeah. haha

Watched all of WWE till around late 2014, that is when it finally started to lose me. Wrestlemania and Survivor Series are the only pay per views I watched live this year. Been jaded for a long time but it seemed to get worse. Now I just get what I can. Was funny, I never thought it would ever get to that point.

Kurt Angle is the best I've seen in terms of in-ring work. My favourite now would be AJ Styles. All that experience elsewhere made him what he is today. But damn, just thinking WWE missed out for so long. It was a shame they don't want none, they don't want none. I can remember that time there was no interest in him before he went to Japan. But again, the experiences in Japan obviously made him even better. Would have loved him to be there sooner, though, back when I was still a super fan.

I've been playing this a long time. I know I mentioned how I won a powerslam contest for a copy of that tnm7 wrestling simulator game. The dream, watching wrestling, you wanted to book wrestling. I can remember being disappointed with it. Then one day I found EWR. Rest is history.

Been posting here for just over 12 years, but didn't really post much in the first few. I don't really do forums and this is pretty much the only one I come to. TEW brought me here, but I have sampled a few of GDS' other games.

Some info... I'm ageless, like God. I used to be a huge fan of WWE, watching it religiously but over the last few years I have lost interest and watch it now and then when there's nothing else on TV. Still always watch Wrestlemania and Royal Rumble though. Favourite wrestlers currently are probably Trent Seven, Christopher Daniels and "Session Moth" Martina My favourite of all time has to be Bret Hart, Rick Martel and Shawn Michaels.

I'm a Derby County fan (football) and also love to see Dunfermline Athletic do well (my surrogate team from my time living in Scotland). Football is pretty much my #1 love in life. My favourite player to ever pull on the Derby shirt is Igor Stimac who played for the Rams between 1995 - 1999.

I'm into super hero movies, graphic novels, gaming, I'm just a massive (old) geek to be honest!

Same here. I still have my copy of both EWR and TEW 2004 in an old drive somewhere.

We sound kind of similar. haha Superhero movies all the way. Wish DC would get their act together.

Get Jim Smith back in. Make Derby great again.

What deity did you annoy to end up with Dunfermline as your surrogate team? (Says the forever optimistic Kilmarnock fan _)

I guess there are a lot of casual WWE fans like me out there. I consider myself to be a causal fan now because I never watch their PPV's the last one I watched was the Takeover War Games one (It pains me to even call that match a War Games match, I was not a fan.) and I hardly watch RAW and I never watch Smackdown. I cannot even recall the last Mania I have watched but it has to be over ten years now.

If I am being honest I haven't been a huge fan of the WWE since the mid-90's. Even during the Attitude Era I was more team WCW than anything else. I also kind of felt at the time that the Attitude Era was ripping off (That might be a strong word, copying is perhaps better) ECW.

I have been a wrestling fan going back to 1986 (man I am old). I started watching wrestling shortly after WrestleMania II. I think think the first show I went to was a Saturday Night's Main Event taping.

I have found myself not watching wrestling as much anymore. I think I may have gotten to the point where it does not really interest me as much as it used to. A few years ago I was an avid TNA fan (yes a lot of the stuff they put on TV was crap but I just liked the roster more than the WWE) and I would not miss an Impact. Now I watch it during commercial breaks while Supernatural and Van Helsing are on.

Same thing goes with ROH. I was a fan of them up until early this year but now the roster lacks to star power it used to have. I also feel that the company puts far too much focus on the Young Bucks and I despise the Young Bucks.

What was the point of this rather long diatribe? Nothing really.

I thought it was interesting. Supernatural will outlive us all.

I lived in Dunfermline so they were the easiest games to go see. Saw them beat Motherwell 3-1 twice in the space of two weeks. That must have been 2001/02 season. Most of my family are Rangers fans so its good to be unique!
