The Impossible WWE Quiz Part 2: The New Generation Era

"In the end, the good guys always win..."


At least, that's the line Vince McMahon gave back in 1994, when he was dramatically acquitted of all charges at the climax of the steroid trial that had cast a shadow over the World Wrestling Federation for at least two years.

That scandal is a significant reason for the WWF's switch to relying on less inflated physiques and performers to front the newly national brand. The New Generation Era was the result.

Generally considered to run from the summer of 1993 (when Hulk Hogan, the face of the company's Golden Age, upped and left) to 15 December 1997 (when Vince McMahon officially announced the beginning of the Attitude Era on Monday night RAW), the New Generation Era was characterised by an increasing reliance on significant talents like Shawn Michaels, Bret 'Hitman' Hart, Yokozuna, The Undertaker and Razor Ramon.

Less feted than either of the stellar eras that bookended it, the New Generation Era is an untapped goldmine for those of you with a WWE Network subscription and a few weeks to kill. So let's see how much you remember!
