Random, but this was the first WWF Hasbro figure I bought:

My first figure was the LJN Jimmy Snuka figure. I ended up with most of that first run of figures (I don't recall having Andre.)

Regarding the first run, I didn't get this one:





I was waiting for the later Warrior ones as I wasn't keen on the green trunks.

Thinking back, there was little playability value with the solid plastic Hasbro figures. Sure, they all had a special move, but good luck trying to have, say, Bret Hart put the sharpshooter on Warrior!

With the later Mattel figures, at least you could move their arms, knees, legs, etc. Bret Hart putting the sharpshooter on Warrior wouldn't have been a problem.

I can honestly say I never owned any wrestling figures. But I was tempted to buy some of the WCW ones circa the nWo and Crow Sting era.

John Hennigan (aka John Morrison, Johnny Nitro, Johnny Impact, Johnny Mundo, etc) is on the current season of SURVIVOR.

"Dirty" Dick Slater passed away this week.  He's one of those guys that old timers have all sorts of crazy stories about.

Oh, that's awful. Horrible disease (as are all diseases, of course). 

I know scientists are trying, and we've all lost someone to cancer, but the sooner that fucking bastard cancer is wiped from this planet, the better.

Best wishes to him.
