Today's Superstars and who they compare to.

Cena - Hogan
Morrison - Rick Rude
Jericho - Mr. Perfect
Khali - Giant Gonzales
Santino - Disco Inferno
Vladimir Kozlov (when he was serious) - Nikita Koloff

The Leg-end Killer
08-12-2010, 03:35 AM
Jack Swagger - Kurt Angle (Sucessfull amateur wrestler with Anklelock submission, I am begining to warm to him)
HHH - Randy Savage (Sleeping with daddys little girl)
I want to find one for Ultimate Warrior but can find someone that talks absolute Bollocks and wrestles like a madman!

i think Ziggler is more of a mr perfect than Jericho
Swagger and Angle is obvious
Ted Di-Biase is obviously becoming...Ted Di-Biase lol
Morrison will eventually be moulded into a new HBK unfortunately, i'd rater see him become his own person
I also think they're moulding Sheamus or possibly McIntyre to be a new version of HHH
and i'm sure Cody Rhodes's new 'dashing' gimmick is based on someone form the 80's or 90's, can anyone find who it is?

If you ask me Dashing Cody Rhodes and all of his vanity could easily become more of a Gorgeous George character. He's well on his way!!

I can't agree with the John Morrison/Rick Rude comparison, sure, both of them had the best Abs of their generation but thats about as far as it goes for Morrison, Rick Rude had absolutely everything, brilliant Wrestler, tons of Charisma, awesome on the mic, could work heel/face perfectly and could work as a double act or on his own.

John Morrison can do flips, can't talk, has little charisma, isn't the best wrestler and only really looks over with the crowd when he is playing partner to someone

I think Malbotia the Devil has it mostly right. The miz is trying to act like a young cocky shawn michaels. Morrison although being wasted with R-Truth is the future of the WWE. I think he has the body type of Rick Rude, but lacks the charisma lately. Jerrico is a definite Mr. Perfect. Cena no wrestling talent, total match with Hogan,(kid magnets). My six-year-old daughter even likes Cena. CM Punk = Bret hart. Shamus = Mid career HHH. Daniel Bryan = Bob Backland. Mark Henry=Ted Arcidi Zack Ryder= buff Bagwell and disco inferno combined. Vladimir Kozlov = Ludvig Borga

I was just thinking about the comparison of Daniel Bryan to Bob Backlund! $10 haircut, red trunks, submission specialist - you are right on the money there
