Stuff that makes you feel old

I like The Miz. He's generally decent at all aspects. But for 16 years, if you asked me to pick out a good Miz match, I could barely tell you one. Only the ladder match with Lawler comes to mind. Even for moments or runs, the only things that I can think of are THAT promo on Bryan on the Smackdown after show, him dressing as John Cena for that total Divas knock off, him calling out Cena in 2009 (?) and the cash in for the title. 

I'd say anecdotally that I like Miz & Morrison and his angles with Riley and Sandow but none of it is more memorable than that.

16 years.

For me it's the fact it's been 9 years since he was WWE Champion. It really feels like nothing's happened with him since then. 9 years!

Some weird backstage documentary appeared on my Facebook video feed today covering the debut of the Dude Love character in WWF. Him and Vince Russo discussing the character, Russo in the crowd watching the debut. I'd never seen it before, but I'm assuming it's maybe an extra from Beyond the Mat? Either way, it was fun to watch and it was amazing how vividly I remember seeing that debut.

Then I did the maths and realised it was twenty three years ago. Fuck, I'm old.

Clearly you've forgotten that time he came back with a slight bit of stubble and Cole spoke to his new "aggressive streak".

The above sentence works for most of the undercard from the last decade too, mind you.

Beyond the Mat is the most likely answer. There were "special editions" on both VHS and DVD, each of which had (different) extra unused footage.

That Vince podcast with Austin was over five years ago. 

"Grab the brass ring!" 

Never did light that fire under Cesaro, did he?

Hogan-Warrior is closer to Buddy Rogers-Bruno Sammartino than to today.

If you started watching in 1991 or earlier, you've been watching the WWWF/E for most of its existence.
