As a kid, I was a fan in the late 70's through the 80's (WWF from around 78 and World Class when it got syndicated here in Boston) that read the Apter mags. Fell out when I got to high school in the late 80's.

I didn't watch again until I watched ECW one late night on the Spanish station in Boston. I really enjoyed the show, and started taping them. That led me into becoming a fan again (I started attending many ECW events in New Hampshire when I moved up there), and would also start watching WWF and WCW during the Monday Night Wars.

Still a fan today, but due to work, I am not watching as much as I used to. I read more about it than watch lately, but still keep up on whats going on.

I have ordered most PPV's up until recently... now, I read the recaps that lobo provides here, and search out the matches that he says are worth it later on youtube.

This kind of fits for me.

In other words, he goes to the library and does the actual grunt work.

I've got to say I've got strange taste buds.  Love Mitsuharu Misawa matches but could care less about almost identical quality matches by Ricky Steamboat. 

I enjoy Ole Anderson promos but am 'eh' while listening to an almost identical quality Harley Race.

I would think I am an old tyme fan.

If WWE didn't releases DVD collections and the documentaries they do, I would have stopped watching wrestling a long time ago.  The same is said for WWE On Demand.  That gave my fandom a 'reboot' back in 2005, and I've been forever grateful for the DVDs and the on demand channel ever since.

I have zero interest in the current product.  And I'd never watch anything 'new' if it wasn't reintroduced to me via these DVDs or channel.
