Before there was the WWE, there was the World Wrestling Federation which saw the likes of the most famous wrestlers ever to crack a chair on another dude’s back. Wrestling icons like Hulk Hogan, Randy Macho Man Savage, Jake the Snake, The Ultimate Warrior and more, were big draws in the ’80s, when wrestling began to really catch on around the country. WWF was full of huge guys, crazy wrestling moves and lots of drama. A testosterone filled soap opera starring bigger than life wrestling characters that would, talk smack to each other and fight ever weekend. The drama would usually come to a head in the form of a Pay-Per-View event where you’d finally see all the wrestling beefs get settled (for a small price) via a flying elbow to the face.
Here’s six classic WWF match-ups that were pretty epic.
