Top 5 Wrestlers
« on: July 16, 2011, 05:02:17 AM »
Top 5 Wrestlers as far as talent, mic skills, promos, matches, and gimmicks.

1) Stone Cold Steve Austin
Saved WWE's ass.

2) The Rock
One of the best on the mic and at playing the crowd.

3) HBK
The showstopper was one of the best pure wrestlers of all time and sparked the Attitude Era that took wrestling to a whole new level.

4) The Undertaker
Til this day one of the best wrestlers and best gimmick of all time!

5) Rick Flair
He was HBK before HBK and the best promo guys of all time.

Wow, five would be tough for me.  I may have to go with ten.  I'm not necessarily going with most talented, but maybe most entertaining?  My top ten, not necessarily in this order:


Hulk Hogan
HBK
Steve Austin
Macho Man
Sting
Undertaker
The Rock
Ric Flair
HHH
Ken Patera (well, ok, maybe not him, but I always liked him for some reason ;-) )

WM III Macho Man vs Steam Boat one of the most entertaining matches ever!

I love Mach Man, Hogan is ok I appreciated him more as a adult than a kid. Another favorite of mine is Bret Hart, but now that I see he was just an asshole it ruined it for me, kinda like finding out santa clause is not real.... =(

I think you could argue that without Hulk Hogan, you would never have heard of anyone else on that list.  It took a special character for Vince McMahon to build around.  If not for him, I think wrestling is still a regional thing being performed in Bingo Halls.  He was really bigger than wrestling and really set the table for everyone else who's come along since, by acting in movies, and being in cartoons, and being featured in WWE Ice Cream Bars!  We need those back!
