Agree. At that point, no one was really into wrestling. Not just WWF but any promotion for that matter. Than Hulk Hogan caught the eye of many and that's when it became one of the most popular sport in sports entertainment.

I don't know, I wasn't around then but when I watch wrestling from those years I don't enjoy it as much as later years.

It was very good as far as the fans that lived in The Mid-Atlantic States and New England States, since that is where the WWWF ran live events. In my opinion, there were better Professional Wrestling Promotions in The United States, Mexico, Canada, Puerto Rico and Europe. The WWWF was one of the better Regional Territories and made more money than almost any of the others, since they ran shows in more large cities than any other Wrestling Territories. The WWWF had Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Washington and Balrimore among it's cities.

I disagree. our cable system would show WWWF wrestling once a month from Madison Square Garden and had some very good matches. I was able to see stars like Superstar Billy Graham, Bruno Sammartino, Pedro Morales, Stan Stasiak and others. I actually was able to see Bob Backlund beat Graham for the title















Of course it was nothing like today. Back then you rarely saw specialty matches like ladder matches and even cage matches were rare but you still saw feuds and bloody matches and of course the wrestlers today are known worldwide but overall the wrestling back in the 70's was some of the very best days for the WWWF/WWE
