Bring Back The Attitude! 42 Things We Miss Most About Wrestling In The 90s

When we talk about golden eras in sports, no era was more more legendary, more electric and more epic than the Attitude Era in the WWE.

Unfortunately, that ended in 2001 when the WWE became a publicly-traded company — introducing the PG Era — but the Attitude is still something we'll never forget!

Long gone are the days of actually beating the sh*t out of each other and objectifying women. No more inferno matches, Hell in the Cell or Debra's puppies.

We'll never go on to see see another buried alive bout, an oiled up divas match or even a mandible claw. But what's even worst is no more D Generation X, no Stone Cold Steve Austin — and where the hell has Shane McMahon been for that matter?

These are all the epic things that made the billion dollar company so great and what it is today. The memories you have will be stored forever, only to be opened when you finally decide to buy the WWE Network.

How sad is it to know that the kids growing up now will have no idea what any of this is?

Whenever you used to see this little guy…


…You knew it could only mean this…


…Or this.


Back in the day, referees used to fight back…


…You could tell that wrestlers were giving it their all…


…And, yes, that included the ladies!


Val Venus made us all feel uncomfortable watching with our parents at home…


…Rikishi was doing everybody's favorite finishing move…


…Eddie Guerrero was pulling up on his lowrider…


…And Lita was breaking everybody's heart.


Back when you could only win by burying your opponent alive…


…And set them on fire in an inferno match.


When barbed wire bats were acceptable weapons…


 …And these were the best thing since sliced bread.


Whenever these two legends used to take the ring together…


…It legitimately made us feel like this.


Back in the glory days, they used to show ass…


…Hell they showed everything!


Remember when Scott Hall was Razor Ramon…


…And when Mankind was having an identity crisis?


When D Generation X was in their prime…


…And this was the greatest tag team in the world…


…It's not like they didn't have any competition either!


From when The Rock was the leader of The Nation…


…To when he became the “Great One”…


…He was delivering the most epic insults you've ever heard.


Back to when Stone Cold was the baddest motherf*cker alive…


…And caught people with the stunner, even after they won.


When Vince McMahon could be your best friend…


…Or your worst nightmare.


Nothing was cuter than when Shane tried to be like his dad…


…Unfortunately, The Rock had to lay the Smackdown.


The poor guy caught a stunner, too!


Nothing was crazier than when we realized Stephanie was hot.


Back in the day, there was more emphasis on the tables…


…Okay, this was a little too much.


But nobody used to use the ladders like the Hardy Boyz


Did we mention DX was the sh*t?!


This was the original Brady Bunch!


And this is what a Monday Night Raw card is supposed to look like.


We miss wrestling in the 90s!


But know your damn role Mankind and shut your mouth!


Bonus: This was the greatest Super Bowl commercial of all time!
