I've been rewatching the Monday Night Wars (WCW Monday Nitro vs. WWF Raw) via the WWE Network, and those viewings reminded me of the first full wrestling match that I watched.
It was September 4, 1995. I turned the channel to TNT and saw "Sting" and "Ric Flair" getting ready for their match. I was so amused with their performance, I started watching WCW Monday Nitro on a weekly basis.
If I didn't watch that particular match, I might have not gotten into wrestling until years later when Stone Cold Steve Austin was raising Hell in the WWF.
