What is your favorite card or match from MSG golden era?
Starting in my early teens, we had a 10 foot fiberglass satellite dish which eventually allowed me to watch wrestling every day/night of the week. The MSG Network was on one of the Satcoms, and one night while flipping past, we saw wrestling. We didn't regularly watch MSG, so we thought it was just a matter of limited commercials. Turned out we were watching the live event as it happened. When they took intermission, you would either see an empty ring or backstage where someone was cutting a promo.
I honestly don't have a favorite memory from it, but just thought it was great to watch from the fabled arena from over 700 miles away and see the same matches my family in Brooklyn had gone into the city to see.
I do remember how dark the arena used to be. If you view WWWF/WWF/WWE events over the years, you can see how it went from the one light over the ring to the bright lights everywhere that we have today.
