When asked about how he viewed the wrestling business, Ric Flair once said, "For me, it's about camaraderie. My whole life is like, if something's going on, nothing ever preceded fun. I always put my friends and the fun and the business ahead of everything."
Flair's comments perfectly describe the wrestling attitude of the 1980s, as the sport went from a regional entertainment event to a cultural phenomenon, and there's little doubt that the wrestlers enjoyed going along with the ride.
Besides, one of the main reasons the Golden era, as many call it, came about was because of the superstar status of the wrestlers who were pushed to the forefront of the industry. Thanks to the WWE's desire for national exposure along with the other promotions who followed suit, wrestlers like Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan and "Macho Man" Randy Savage were able to use the wrestling boom to become household names, giving the fans who piled into the arenas each week more and more of the action they desperately wanted.
Are you familiar enough with the wrestlers who were pushed to the forefront of the business in the 1980s to ace this quiz, or will you crumble beneath the weight of some of the questions asked?
