Best Pro Wrestler of all timePage 3 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
I would agree that Hall and Nash were the stuff when they were a team. One of the greatest teams. Flair was also on top of the "Cool meter" when he was in his prime...whoooo.
I would have to argue with the greatest moral wrestler being Hogan. Preached a lot of eating your vitamins and saying your prayers, then would go in the back and shoot up. hmmmmm. Kinda like Madona telling girls to not have sex, then hooking up with Dennis Rodman...dont ya think?

For a variety of reasons, those are some of the most entertaining wrestlers I've ever seen in my time. And I know I missed some.

That is because they were standard bad guys, with nothing real special about them other than their matches with Hulk Hogan. It is real easy to play a bad guy character because all you have to do is insult people. Playing a good guy is much much more difficult. The most difficult is to pull off what is a heal character but have him come across as a face, such as the Rock, Stone Cold, Undertaker. That is one of the things that makes those characters so great...they have so much diversity because they can be either the heal or face, or both, in matches. Right now I would say the best characters that rides the gray very well is Eddie Guerrero and Kurt Angle. They are both fantastic at pulling switches. Even when acting in the heal character, they play a great comedic role.

I'm surprised that nobody is talking about guys like Million Dollar Man or Shane McMahon.
Million dollar man was the ultimate heel for a number of years back during the heyday of wrestling. His role was so popular that Vince himself took it over to make the whole Austin vs McMahon thing.

And Shane had some of the most memorable matches in wrestling history in his very brief time in the ring. His match against Kurt Angle, the match where he jumped off the Jumbotron to elbow Big Show. Unreal.

And how about The Rock???

Go to any video store that carries VHS tapes. You are likely to find some old NWA or AWA tapes to watch some of the older wrestlers. Don't expect all of the pyro and theatrics that you see these days...but as far as individual performances, they put on quite a show. You gotta check out Sting before he went all Crow on us. He and Flair had some truly classic matches. And the Legion of Doom....if you liked them with the WWE...they are ten times better when they were in their prime. Also suggested...Hall and Nash put on a great show as the Outsiders. I enjoyed the whole NWO angle until they split into Red and White.

Ladies and Gentlemen - The Shiek and Bobo Brazil had to be 2 of the greatest ever. Their matches are legendary. Shiek became the only wrestler to wrestle in 7 different decades and finally retired at age 72. I don;t think anyone today could match up to either one of those 2.

Far and away the best pure wrestler of all time was: Paper Gomays...

Other categories:

Best blond bomber (tie): Buddy Rogers, Freddie Blassie and of course, Hulk Hogan

Best terrorist: The Sheik

Best Latino:.... 2nd only to Paper (above): Antonino Rocca, who also started female calisthenics with the abdominal stretch hold.

Best Asian Villain: Kinji Shabuya

Best Boxer who ever ended his career in a wrestling ring: Muhammad Ali, who attended a wrestling match in Chicago, started shouting and threatening and putting on a show and got thrown out of the ring and landed on his head... was taken away in a stretcher and was never the same. The cause of his condition was said to have been an accumulation of punches to the head taken over the years in boxing, but whoever's seen the tape of this knows better...

This is a forum that I actually enjoyed reading. Personally, I put Chris Benoit at the top of my list. It is unfortunate that his mic skills are not in the 'Hogan' or 'Rock' range, but in terms of selling the in-ring product he is great.
