You might not guess it to know me, but I was a huge pro wrestling fan back in the day. And by “the day” I mean the mid to late 1980s, what I consider to be the Golden Age of the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). It was fun, it was exciting, it was everything a pre-teen boy could want to watch.
Those days are long behind me now, but every once in awhile I pine for the salad days watching strong but pasty guys like Rowdy Roddy Piper, Big John Studd, Andre the Giant, and Paul “Mr. Wonderful” Orndorff compete in the squared circle. Oh yeah, not to mention less pasty guys like Hulk Hogan, Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, the Junkyard Dog, and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat.
To help remember those wrestling titans of days gone by — as well as some before my time — here’s a gallery of 20 vintage pro wrestling magazine covers featuring these showtime gladiators in all their colorful glory.
