Default Attitude Era

Stone Cold Steve Austin, Vince McMahon and the Rock were the leaders of the Attitude Era. If not for Stone Cold starting the Attitude Era who would have filled his shoes? Bryan Pillman? Ken Shamrock? would the Rock have arrived earlier at the top? maybe even Foley?

What is your thoughts?

According to Loose Cannon, as the Attitude Era was about to happen, Brian Pillman was dealing with serious injuries, an addiction to painkillers, and mental instability. Not only that, but he was never a main eventer. Great overall wrestler, but not a potential leader of the Attitude Era, unfortunately he never even lived to see it.

Ken Shamrock? Not a main eventer either, and never really looked at as a great worker.

About The Rock... well, Austin was a symbol of the Attitude Era, but that's just how it worked out, truth is, Rock was on the same level. If Austin wasn't around, we'd probably look back at the WWF Warzone cover and see Rock raising his arms.

I think Mick Foley could've been a leader of the Attitude Era if Austin hadn't of already claimed the spot. He was arguably a leader nonetheless. The same thing can be said about Undertaker and HHH.

Austin broke the mould at the king of the ring with his victory speech, without the cussing and the Austin 3:16 says I just whupped your ass speech that he gave chances are it would have been a long time before boundaries were pushed like that...

even now the WWE is not as extreme as it was durring the "attitude era" cause they got nobody with balls...

Yes, HBK was attitude with the invention of DX. All the great segments with Sg. Slaughter and the Nation. Beyond that his character has been an attitude of cockiness.

Dick Biggs is correct no one today has the balls to make it as good as the Attitude Era because of wanting to cater to a more youthful crowd.........Cena fans.

Austin brought the attitude to the WWF.

Mick Foley brought the stunts into the WWF.

The Rock brought comedy into the WWF.

They all helped, when it came to the attitude era but Austin was the main cause and the leader.

DX was really just two Main Eventers and a bunch of losers.

Chyna...chick with a dick = loser

Billy Gunn...chick with a dick = loser

Jesse James...trailer trash no talent loser

X Pac...

Seriously. DX was nothing if not for HBK, HHH and the booking. Other than that, it was a bunch of slacking stragglers who would've been more at home working as Carnies than as wrestlers.

Yes, indeed, the real DX died after Shawn left. All was left was Trips and some want to be stars, who never made it.

Eehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...the McMahon-Helmsley Era was AWESOME. Sure, it was mainly HHH, Steph and The Rock...but it was unmitigated AWESOME, despite the gay hanger-ons that made up the rest of "DX."

Thats all that was on my television in mid- late 90's, back then wrestling was on 7 days a week

Monday- Raw
Tuesday - Nitro (aired on tuesdays in Canada)
Weds - Thunder
Thursday - SD
Friday - I think thats when ECW was on TNN back then?
Saturday- Superstars and Shotgunn (Basically the same show one canadian and one american)
Sunday - Heat/PPVs

point is, I know what I saw on my TV in the 90's HBK was really gay then, especially pre- DX when he was dancing around Big Daddy Cool Diesel like a homo wearing rindstones and womens earings...oh yeah and dont forget the white leather biker hats and chaps... He may of had some amazing matches, you cannot deny that talent ...but gay is gay dude and you ain't going to change my mind on that issue.

but hey, if the guy floats your boat...then whatever man

and as far as proving that Shawn was gay goes, don't forget he did Playgirl back in the mid 90's.

Not too many chicks reading that.
