I got the chance yesterday to meet Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka. He is a very nice person, and fun to be around. He has been around wrestling for 34 Years...And boy can he still wrestle too!

Hogan - when it comes to mic skills he doesn't have to wrestle to get the fans over.

Bret Hart - One of the best technical wrestlers in pro wrestlings history.

masterblaster666, ok well when a 7'5 500 pound guy like the big show comes up to you, try say the same thing you said on this board.

I don't care what martial arts background someone has if one of the guys gets ahold of you, your done.

Kent Shamrock once said even know wrestling is scripted it's one of the hardest sports in the business because due to the constant work out methods and dangers stunts they have to preform. He should know considering he was in the WWE.

To give you an example during last years Tough Enough challenge a former UFC fighter by the name of Dan Puter one of the Tough Enough contestants was smirking during a shoot style interview that The Big Show was giving to them in the locker room, so the Big Show walked up to him and ask him what was funny and Puter didn't say anything, then he asked him again and Puter still didn't say anything, so the Big Show slapped him and when you got a guy like him and his hand is the size of your face slapping you it's going to feel like a hard punch. Then he throw him against the lockers, picked him up buy his shirt and tossed out side of the locker room with one hand. And this Puter guy was 6'1 215 pounds and the Big Show was tossing him around like a rag doll. And no it wasn't some big act it was real.

So yeah wrestler like him you kind of don't want to mess with unless your life is on the line and you have no other option.

There are so many great wrestlers through the years I think you would have to put them in seperate catagories.

First of all it kind of amazed me that one of my favorites was not on anyone elses posting... "Superstar" Billy Graham.

Greatest Entertainer and Enfluence opn the Business... Has to be "Hulk Hogan"
Greatest Villian... Tie Between "Ox Baker" & "Abdulah the Butcher"
Most Exciting... "Bruiser Brody"

Through the years there were so many that left their marks and had great runs, some short runs, some long runs. I don't think you could say who was the best..., the best at what?

What we should be discussing is the Greatest Matches ever seen!

Now you could get some great memories going!

I seriously dont nkow how anyone can just name one...and of all time ...They've been great in their time...Hulk, Hart, Beniot, Nash, Show, Vince, Micheals...the list goes on...They've made the sport great to watch for years...the heels, and all the rest...

Even though I dont always like the story lines...There are many greats...I couldn't name just one..

Best wrestlers of all time would have to be Shawn Michaels ( The midnight rockers ), Brett Hart, The Road Warriors and Hulk Hogan. He wasn't a good wrestler, the leg drop COME ON! Hulk was more an entertainer then a wrestler. Ive met Booker T and let me tell you his hands are HUGE, but a real nice guy. And we can not forget Catus Jack, what a character!
Wresting is not the same as what it use to be. Too much smack ( talk ) it wasnt like to the good old days.

Ric Flair... Antonio Inoki... Hulk Hogan... Bret Hart... Bruno Sammartino... Buddy Rogers... Lou Thez... Outback Jack... Answer too hard..... Brain melting..... the Rock... Stone Cold... Pedro Morales... Arachnaman... Dusty Rhodes... Harley Race... Way too hard to really answer, must stop thinking about it...

Here is my opinion

Hulk Hogen (grew up watching him and is inspirational)
Bret "the Hitman" Hart
Goldberg
Kevin Nash "Big sexy"-"Big Daddy cool" Diesel - can't believe it's 10 years now since he was the wwe champion.
Sting
Scot Hall-Razor Ramon
Many others

Flair is ok too but not particularly a fan of his.

oh and by the way Hogan sucks....always has, he could never wrestle and to complare him to guys who wrestled 200-300 times a year every year is a joke, he was a great showman no doubt but a wrestler?? pfft sorry not even close

Another vote for Brett Hart. Not only was he a great entertainer, he was greatly respected by other wrestlers, and understood that the fans came first.
Regarding the old debate of Flair vs Hogan...I would have to say Flair was a better all around performer where as Hogan was completely reliant on his charisma. He has no actual wrestling ability.
Most under rated wrestler: Dean Melinko.

Yes everyone, Hogan's not a great wrestler, but regardless, the man is still a wrestling icon, no doubt. I just dont see why everyone is hating on him lately...

Anyways, im still goin with my previous vote-Bret Hart will always be number one as far as being great in all areas of wrestling. The man can talk it and prove it.

Hulk Hogan definately in his prime the most entertaining and exciting wrestlert watch. And AndreThe Giant. Saw him live he was HUGE.
