Leaving a Mark: 5 times pro wrestling gave me the feels

Five moments that shaped me into the fan I am today.

Leaving a Mark is a look at some of my favorite and not so favorite moments from pro wrestling when I was growing up. They may not all be good memories, but they stuck around for one reason or another. Each week, I look back with a modern perspective on the times I cherished so much as a kid.

Still, it is capable of delivering extreme moments of emotion.
