Please allow me to give my infinite wisdom on this matter. Without a shadow of a doubt the greatest promo guy ever was THE MOST ELECTRIFYING MAN IN SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT, THE ROCK. Here is a sample of his infinite greatness.
# You will go one on one with the Great One!
# Who in the blue hell are you?
# Finally…The Rock…has come back to (whatever city he’s in at the time)
# If you smell what The Rock is cooking!
# The Rock will take you down Know Your Role Boulevard which is on the corner of Jabroni Drive and check you directly into the Smackdown Hotel!
# It doesn’t matter what you think.
# Who is this roody-poo?
Layeth the smacketh down
What do you think? …It doesn’t matter what you think
I’m gonna take this (object), shine it up real nice, turn it side ways, and stick it straight up your candy ass!
Know your role and shut your mouth!
Do you like pie?
If you smeellllll….what the Rock…Is…COOKING!
The Rock is gonna go through HHH like ex-lax goes through his fat-ass mama!
Who knew, that a man with 24 inch pythons would have half inch testicles!
I could go on forever but this is the last one.

The jabroni beating, pie eating, trail blazing, eye brow raising, the best in the present, future and past, and if ya’ll don’t like me you can kiss the people’s ass!

Damn, I miss the ROCK....... For once I'm MAD.

Teamwork is essential – it allows you to blame someone else.

I think without question The Rock was the best promo guy ever in wrestling. The Rock was a one of a kind.

Greatest Promo Guys In Wrestling

Wow it is tough to come up with a list of the greatest promo guys ever. I'm sure 5 minutes after I post this list I will completely disagree with half the guys on my list, think of a ton I forgot, and want to change the order of most of them. But at least it's an attempt. I excluded tag teams (Road Warriors, Motor City Machine Guns, Dudley Boyz, New Age Outlaws might deserve the list), managers (Heenan, Bearer, Fuji, Albano, Blassie, etc) and female wrestlers. Here are my top picks based on promo material, skits, interviews, etc.

1. The Rock
2. Ric Flair
3. Roddy Piper
4. Steve Austin
5. Nick Bockwinkel
6. Dusty Rhodes
7. Terry Funk
8. Santino Marella
9. Edge
10. Kurt Angle

11. Gorgeous George
12. Jesse Ventura
13. Arn Anderson
14. Kevin Sullivan
15. Ken Anderson
16. Hulk Hogan
17. Billy Graham
18. Tully Blanchard
19. Chris Jericho
20. Jake Roberts

21. Jimmy Valiant
22. Mick Foley
23. Shawn Michaels
24. Vince McMahon
25. John Cena
26. Nigel McGuinness
27. Rick Rude
28. Sgt. Slaughter
29. Ted Dibiase
30. CM Punk

31. Jerry Lawler
32. Triple H
33. The Miz

I made it a top 33 list because I thought of 33 guys and top 32 lists are too common.

The Rock
Jake the Snake (check this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaDxp_NV34s)
Brian Pillman
Steve Austin
Jericho (especially in WCW and early WWF days)
Big Poppa Pump (in his NWO days http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSFTyFoxbHI)
Golddust (during his first run, before he turned into a comedy character)
Santino
Carlito
Kevin Nash (NWO days)
The Road Dog
Bubba Ray Dudley (not so much now, but in ECW he was awesome)
Ted Dibiase Senior
Bobby Heenan (if we can count managers)

I think Wade Barrett will make the list eventually too.

I'm going to list my favorite promo guys currently in WWE. I'd be here all day if I would list the all time guys!! But some of my favorites of all time are:
The Rock,
Stone Cold,
and Scott Steiner

in the WWE today (in no order)

Chris Jericho,
CM Punk,
Santino Marella,
The Miz,
William Regal
I also quite enjoy Big Shows face promos. The ones he cut on Jack Swagger (Swaggie etc) were very funny. Kane's promos during his WHC reign have been good, and Undertaker can also cut a good promo. I also have hopes for Alberto del Rio to bee a good promo deliverer.

Surely the Ultimate Warriors promo's were the best..... lol I'm joking of course.

Mr Perfect had a great talent to promo's, can't believe he hasn't been mentioned. Flair also was great.

Please allow me to give my infinite wisdom on this matter. Since someone had to bring up the the d-bag A.K.A. Ulitmate Warrior I had no choice my SHOWERHEADS want it and I deliver.

I actually don't enjoy any of the current stars' promos, bar Christian, - that includes Edge, Jericho, Cena and CM Punk. Although Alberto is starting to impress me.

Maybe it's the PG thing, I'm not sure, but The Rock followed by Stone Cold were great promo artists. When The Rock did that quick promo on Raw a few months back; he proved in those few minutes he is better than anyone out there NOW. Cena should've been embarrased to follow that.

Stone Cold as well - his promo skills were what build him up before the Stunner made an appearance. His sing-along with the Rock was hilarious.

Now it all seems just like angry men making angry (long) speeches - with no sense of irony or fun. Give The Rock or Stone Cold thirty seconds and they can blow the likes of Edge or Cena away. Both who spend all the time, up till the first ad break, making boring promos. God they are soooo boring.

Well, from the looks of it...it seems The Rock is the all-time favorite promo guy which in all truthfulness he should be with Stone Cold coming in second.

I will say there is no one in today's business that comes remotely close to The Rock's promos let alone Stone Cold's promos.
