Introduction to the Board as a wrestling fan

What's up guys, Christian here.
I'm 24 years old, born and raised in good ol' Germany. I've been a fan since about early 1999 when I saw a Monday Nitro on DSF.
I can't remember all the details, all I remember is that I saw an unmasked Rey Mysterio in a Cow jumpsuit and I thought that was the coolest sh*t ever.
Since we didn't get WWF at the time I was a WCW fan growing up. I remember hearing that Kevin Nash beat Goldberg and thought that Nash must be the most badass guy since he beat Goldberg (never seen Kevin Nash before, just heard about the match). When I finally saw him on TV I was wildly disappointed, because he sold for some guy who I didn't even know.
Now I'm mostly watching all of the stuff I have missed, which means mostly 80's and 90's stuff. The current stuff WWE, TNA etc. put on doesn't interest me anymore. If anything worthwhile happens I watch it, but it's mostly reports for me now.
Anyways I'm just happy to have found this place, and please go easy on me, I'm not an expert on old wrestling but I'm trying to learn
Living in England, we could get WCW via DSF on analogue Sky on the ASTRA channels. I could never get the DSF WCW PPV schedule correct and I always missed them. As hard as I tried, I could never find a reliable source for listings, no matter where I looked and when I did find a TV guide-mag which had listings, they were never correct, as stupid as that sounds now.

DeNucci & Victor Rivera vs. Blackjacks - WWWF TV
I've never heard this one talked up before.
Is it worth tracking down?

No, not at all, but after starting with that cartoony 94-95 WWF product, the two are quite contrasting. I guess it's part of growing up.
Nothing odd about enjoying southern pro wrestling.

After my interest waned by 1993, bounced back from 1996-1999, then waned again when I began to realize that the matches had become unsatisfying to watch. It was then that, having recalled that the little bit of Japanese wrestling that I had seen had been decent, I decide to buy some tapes and see what it was all about. I ended up enjoying some Joshi and becoming a big fan of All Japan. In particular, I've really enjoyed the mid-70's stuff I've seen and the late 80's to mid 90's All Japan. I've also dabbled in a bit of shootstyle from the UWF/UWFI and some 90's New Japan--moreso the heavies than the juniors.
School and work limited my time for wrestling during much of the past decade, and I didn't care much for the WWE during the aughts, but I've been enjoying a decent amount of WWE (with the aid of a DVR to fast-forward through the mountains of crap) for the last two years or so. I've also been revisiting the old puroresu and enjoying that tremendously.
