What's the best year for wrestling and why is it 2000?
>>
that match was awesome
>>
>>817672
Any wrestling before I started watching is absolute shit

FACT
>>
Why is it 2000, you ask?

Because literally every PPV (aside from Wrestlemania) was great, with high quality matches and memorable angles and moments. Every single one. No other year came close to that level of consistency.
>>
'98.
>AJPW at its peak with Kobashi as champion
>good Best of the Super Juniors tournament
>FMW was going well
>WCW was chock full of great cruiserweights, nWo wasn't too stale/out of control
>joshi had: AJW, GAEA, JWP and Arsion
>BJW and DDT were starting up
>Michinoku Pro was doing quite well
>shoot wrestling was still alive
>WWE was actually entertaining
>>
>>817672
From Mania 00 to Mania 01 desu fammmmm
>>
2000
>kurt angle's push
>foley getting fucked over and over again
>triple h pre-burying years
>american badass taker
>stone cold returning

It was pretty comfy. Too bad the invasion angle was botched thanks to Vince's writing and Goldberg and Sting's reluctance to come aboard.
>>
>>817672

2000 was actually one of the worst years for wrestling
>>
>>818598
WrestleMania was shit.
>>
>>818625
Also a great Benoit v Jericho rivalry and the GOAT tag team division.
>>
>>818740
Because there was no taker
>>
Also at one point in the rumble 2000, rikishi is in the ring with a bunch of dead wrestlers. It's literally rikishi vs the dead.
>>
TABLES
AND LADDERS
AND CHAIRS
>>
2015 is the best. Indies thriving and WWE tanking hard, best year by far.
>>
>>818608
This Tbh, AJPW was still GOAT, WCW was a year before shit fell apart completely, Joshi was at the end of an era filled with GOAT joshi wrestlers, WWE was good, literally a bunch of promotions doing decent/just getting their start
>>
>>818608
Also ECW reached their peak with Heat Wave 98.
>>
>>817672
Peak of the best era
>>
2002 was the greatest wrestling year ever
>>
It's because you were a child and yet to be exposed to all of life's crushing disappointments
>>
2001 was the best year.
>>
>>818608
1998 was the best. WWF, WCW and ECW were all at the top of their game
>>
2006 or 2011 were GOD TIER.
>>
What about the worst year? 1995 in the middle of the Steroids Legal Process, Diesel being one of the worst champion ever, a ton of wrestlers that made the 80s and early 90s left for ECW and WCW. The only good thing was Bret Hart in the mid card hell.
>>
2025 was great. Loved seeing to roman vs sheamus for every ppv for 10 years straight.
>>
>>819371
Worst year = 2015 tbch family
>>
>>819366
2006-2009 were pretty good if you were a TNA fan. If not it was shit tier
>>
>>819377
>2006 GOD TIER feud John Cena vs Rated R Superstar Edge also Mcmahons vs DX
>Shit tier
Pick one
>>
>>819381
McMahon & DX characters were pretty stale by that time, the awful Big Show was part of that feud and DX with Michaels is the worst DX. Don't even remember the Cena/Edge feud
>>
>>817672
2004
>>
>>817672
>Championship Street Fight Rules Triple H

When did he change his name to just Triple H?
>>
>>819371
2012 has gotta be up there.
>>
>>819875
Around the time DX started, maybe a little earlier
>>
>>817672
> triple h and steph show
> good
>>
>>819366

>2006
>2011

Hahahaha underage
>>
2001 was the most solid year for wrestling.
ECW's last PPV was actually good.
WCW's final three PPVs were solid.
Every WWE PPV was above average (except for Vengeance).

Epic fucking entrance

>2001
>WW'e'

What the fuck
>>
98. WCW had Goldberg, and the nWo storyline was still tolerable. WWF had Rock and Austin start to come into it's own, and ECW was at its peak as well. Wrestling has been on a downturn since WWE monopolised it in 2001.
>>
>>819396
>DX with Michaels is the worst DX
Nigga u what
>>
>>820596
When DX came back a few years ago, and it was basically Michaels and HHH as a tag team, that was some of the most embarrassing shit they've ever done. Pair of old cunts making DUDE COCKS LMAO jokes.
>>
1999-2001
2012-2014
>>
Either 1998 or 1999 is the objectively correct answer. Russo, the greatest booker in the history of wrestling, is at the height of his powers with pieces he's designed lined up in all the right places.
>>
>>820596
This is the best version of DX

https://youtu.be/VnsKKBD06Ys?t=3m38s

>>820616

>>
1999 is the best year in wrestling, period.
>>
97 or 98.

97 would probably be my pick but then again I don't exactly have opinion about Japanese or Mexican scene from that timeframe.
>>
>>820713
>break up of The Corporation
>break up of DX
>break up of NWO

u wot
1998 is the GOAT
>>
can this be a WWF thread now gtfo wwe babbies pg shit

attitude era THE BEST 98-01 was the rasslin GLORY days

just recently watched RAW 292 omfg what an episode, the writers where GODS back then hype out the ass.
except all the weird undertaker shit wtf.
>>
>>831390
slow mo test
>>
>>831391
SLAM OF THE WEEK
>>
It's either 98 or 2000 for me.
98
>Austin McMahon on fire
>HHH and The Rock become headliners
>DX vs The Nation was hilariously racist
>Goldberg
>Jericho was funny as fuck
>ECW peaks
>RVD git good
>Kane was still an unstoppable Michael Myers monster and not a gimp with a Tori fetish
>Japan was banging out 5 stars for fun
>Kawada dropping people on their heads
2000
>Actual great PPVs
>The Rock becomes top guy
>Foley bumping like a nutter for HHH
>The Radicalz
>Kurt Angle still fresh and healthy
>GOAT TAG TEAM DIVISION
>ECWs mid card trio of Tajiri, Guido and Super Crazy
>RVD becomes the face of ECW
>here comes the money stuntman matches
>Taker and Austin HUGE returns
>>
>>831390
>>831391
>>831428
Vince is lucky he didn't die. Forgot how bad that looked.
>>
>>818625
>kurt angle's push
Worst when he got the title

Should have been Rock retaining until WM 17, would have made the feud make sense Austin was out and Rock was the man now
>>
>>831451
2000 undoubtedly, it was fucking crazy for me, watching raw, smackdown and PPVs religiously
>>
Wrestling peaked in 1998
