Last updated:

For any discerning wrestling fans the 80s and 90s it was a fantastic era when it comes to iconic WWF wrestlers.

Every family had their favourites whether they were the same or not (in our house it was between Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior)  and the weekends used to consist with a bowl of popcorn and settling down to watch your favourite WWF wrestlers duke it out, believing that the whole performances where the real deal and watching with excitement when your main man won a Royal Rumble or a coveted WWF title belt.

Retroheadz takes a look back at who we think are the real WWF Wrestling stars of the 80s and 90s, many of whom also starred in some awesome action movies too.

These are the ones that we have never forgotten and what we think were there best moments in wrestling.
