I've been enjoying reading the Wrestling Observer flashbacks on your blog, especially since we're now into the Monday Night Wars.
This got me thinking. As a lad in his teens living in the UK, I grew up on World of Sport wrestling and then, when that vanished in the late 80s, the WWF.
I wasn't able to watch RAW at the time, but I never used to miss Superstars. I was aware of WCW, hell I even had a WCW LCD game where you could play as Arn Anderson or Sting, but I didn't follow it, for me, it was the WWF.
WWF was the only wrestling I had available at the time and therefore was the only one I watched.
Truth be told, I wasn't even aware of the “War” and took the Huckster skits as jabs at the older, now gone, wrestlers. Think was probably 2001 when I first heard the term (which coincides with when I got internet access)
My question is, was this the case for most people outside of the US, or was it just me living a sheltered life?
