Stuff that makes you feel old

I did a Twitter thing on this a while back, so I'll just recycle most of that...

  • Shane McMahon is the same age that Sgt Slaughter was when he was named WWF Commissioner
  • The Undertaker is older than Sgt Slaughter was when Sarge was in the Gimmick Battle Royal at Wrestlemania 17.
    I used the Gimmick Battle Royal as a key point because it was a time when all the talent involved were presented as washed up relics of a previous era, the idea of pushing them in the present day seemed demonstrably absurd...
  • At the time of that Battle Royal: Bushwhacker Butch and Nikolai Volkoff were the same age that The Undertaker is now
  • Typhoon & The Goon were younger then than Triple H is now
  • Hillbilly Jim was the same age Triple H is now
  • Earthquake was younger than John Cena, AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, and¬†Shayna Baszler, and only a few months older than Finn Balor
  • Brother Love was younger than John Cena
  • Michael Hayes was the same age as Cena.
  • One Man Gang, same age as Brock Lesnar
  • Kamala, younger than The Undertaker
  • The Repo Man was younger than Matt Hardy
  • Duke Droese was¬†33 years old. Younger than¬†everyone¬†already mentioned. Younger than Roman Reigns.

I saw yesterday doing the rounds on twitter which follows on from the above post that there were 18 WWF Wrestlemanias and next years will be the 18th WWE Wrestlemania

It really does only seem like a few years ago we were told "get the F out" but it was almost 18...18!!!! Years ago

MJF was born seven months after Nitro started.

I'm so out of touch and living in New Gen era WWF that I don't even know who MJF is, what MJF stands for and if he/she is in NXT or AEW!

I posted that in the off-topic version of this thread early Tuesday morning so I'm claiming credit if it was on Twitter yesterday.
