That question is on the Torch's Facebook page and I had to stop and think for a moment.

I'm more of an old-time fan, but I'm still "in touch". I probably "know more" than the typical fan.

I'll label myself as "smart mark" because I don't think "die hard" or even "casual" fits anymore.

WWE 84-92 jerk: can't get enough.

WCW 96-99 punk: really like the nWo stuff.

I can't describe me.  Here are the books I read (off the top of my head). Maybe that will help:

Hulk Hogan
Jimmy Hart
Bret Hart
Ted DiBiase
Shawn Michaels
HHH
Superstar Billy Graham
Jerry Lawler
Ric Flair
Steve or William Regal
Bobby Heenan
Roddy Piper
Wrestlecrap
Wrestlecrap - Death of WCW
Andre The Giant
Vince McMahon - Sex, Lies, and Headlocks
Eric Bischoff
Hulk Hogan - My Life Outside the Ring
WWE 1980's
Chyna
Freddie Blassie

I wanna read Duggan's book I think.

I don't watch too much anymore. Mostly old stuff on youtube. This forum is pretty much my only link to the current product. If I hear about something interesting happening I will look it up on youtube. Right now I've been checking out the Wyatt Family.

Not. I watched as a kid, did some tarding about 10 years ago, and lost interest rapidly.

Should I bring my TNA championship belt collection?

Fan in the 80s and read the Apter Mags. Returned to watching during the Monday Night Wars and became a message board poster. I was a casual fan for a short time after.

I have no interest in the product currently.

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.

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.
