Both Andersons or just Arn? What about Lex Luger?

That reminds me: What was your biggest mark-out moment ever?
Because mine was -definitely- the debut of Brock Lesnar.

How much money did they spend on the plastic surgery, man?!?
That was a great two years or so there. I miss kayfabe.

Probably the biggest mark out moment for me was the first wrestling event I ever watched, because at the time I could not comprehend it wasn't real. It was a flag match on RAW of Steve Austin, Dude Love (Mick Foley), and Taker as Team USA vs. Team Canada of Bret & Owen Hart, and British Bulldog. Given that I was 11 or 12 and didn't know jack squat about wrestling, needless to say I was quite pissed that Team USA lost. I laugh at it now, but I still remember that match and there was just a genuine electricity that whole night given the storyline and it being in Canada.

Recently, when the Rock made his comeback. I sort of jumped up and down like an 11 year old seeing Hanson in 1997. Not sure why especially since we all knew it was coming...but when that music hit I marked out like crazy.
In terms of Ernest the Cat Miller, I always thought that him and Norman Smiley should have had a tag team of ridiculousness.

My biggest mark-out moment as an adult was definitely the return of Mr. Perfect at the Royal Rumble. Hennig was pretty much always my favorite wrestler, particularly as that character.
As a kid - not sure - have to chew on that one for a while!
And definitely agree with MikeAD - Miller and Smiley the Hardcore Wiggler would have been a fantastic tag team.
Actually, I will add that while the Smiley character got stupid after a while, that storyline was pretty good too. He resisted the hardcore bouts claiming to be a scientific wrestler, then won the championship in a fluke, then started to embrace the hardcore style.

Most recently, Punk winning the title at Money in the Bank, in Chicago. I thought for sure Cena would retain and was the most genuinely happy I've been with a wrestling result in quite awhile.
As a younger fellow, the first PPV I ever got live was the 98 Royal Rumble. I had started to love Stone Cold at this point, so when he won the Rumble, I went crazy. Also, I don't believe I saw it live, but whenever Undertaker threw Mankind off the top of the cell, I went nuts.

They recycle so much over and over. Visera/Mable recently had a storyline that was about the same as Mark Henry's Sexual Chocolate WHILE he was feuding with Mark Henry...
