Well, what was your favorite? I know Kane put on a good one after SummerSlam, some of the Nexus segments have been gold (at least in my opinion), and Ric Flair and Mick Foley had a great one before their recent match on TNA, but I'll tell ya, the video I posted undoubtedly takes the cake imo. As I was watching this on youtube I remembered just how good this guy can be if he is given a chance to shine. So if you want to be entertained by a good ole fashioned clinic on how to put on a heel promo, do yourself a favor and watch the video I have below:

Cody Rhodes' dental hygiene promo in the UK. I especially loved the "God save the queen and God save your teeth!" line. Pretty hilarious stuff.

There has been any. The great promo/segment days ended when Rock, Austin, DX, Jericho & so forth left.

Oh come on, there have been plenty of good to great promos that have been made since those overrated guys left. Yes, I said it, they were overrated. The Rock had like 5 catchphrases and that was about it, Stone Cold was a one-trick pony who's gimmick got old, DX were better promo-wise as singles wrestlers and Jericho is still with the WWE.

earlier in the year during the Edge vs Orton feud, Orton was a guest on the cutting edge. edge did a little bit of a shoot, possibly from real life frustration from his failed face run.

also i loved when daniel bryan had his two segments w/ michael cole on nxt. that was captivating.

Just about evey Chris Jericho promo :)
The two that really stand out are when he runs through every wretler he's wrestled and when he's sitting in the ring waiting for the laptop to put him back in the 6 pack challenge, absolutely OWNED Cole!

Seeing as 99% of the words that come out of most of the guys mouths on Raw and SD is scripted I'm going with this GEM from NXT

When CM Punk first turned heel he delivered some great promos on Jeff Hardy, but my favorite one is the one on the 900th episode of Raw.

Your joking right? :rolleyes:

Come back when you know what your talking about, unless you have just started watching wrestling, if you watched it during that time you wouldn't speak so much crap. All the Rock's/Austins promos were off the cuff not the scripted talentless nonsense today when they just learn the lines and read them out like robots.

What was so great about that CM Punk promo?, The crowd were pretty much dead throughout it and he had to refer to The Rock and Austin to get himself heat, so what does that tell you?

The best promo I have EVER seen would be a split choice.
1.) 2005 ECW One Night Stand-Paul Heymans promo. That was the most intense promo EVER!You knew he felt every word
2.) UNSURE OF DATE Ring of Honor-CM Punks old man and the snake promo. Punk had just won the ROH belt and then turned heel and OMG the promo was epic I have never been into Indy wrestling but after I saw that promo I started to keep my eye on Punk.

There are other great ones sure but when I hear BEST PROMO. I will always think of those two.

HONORABLE MENTIONS:
HBKs I lost my smile
Hogans first heel promo at Bash at the Beach
Vince McMahons chair promo on SD bringing in the NWO <----Grade A

Samoa Joe shoots on Hall and others. It's probably more valid today than it was back then! Classic promo!

Daniel Bryan's shoot style promo on NXT. So true and the segment actually gave me chills. It's the best thing I've seen WWE do in years, but instead of running with it they brushed it aside like it never happened.

It's not a recent one because IMO there haven't been any worth mentioning. This to me is what a shoot promo should be.

You see, this is why some people shouldn't have computers. I'd be willing to bet that I've been watching wrestling longer than you have buddy, and I was definatly around during the Attitude Era. Why would they have to script their promos when they said the same exact thing every time? Attitude Era was OVERRATED. We only remember all the good stuff about it and forget that most of it was crap. Why do you think NONE of the really talented wrestlers want to go back to it?

CM Punks promo was perfect. He delivered every line of it with excellent timing, and anyone (apparently besides you) can tell that the crowd was ready to rip his head off throughout the entire thing. The crowd was dead? WTF were you watching?? The crowd was more up for that promo than anything else that has been put out in recent memory and that includes Nexus. Btw, he also insulted the crowd, HHH, Orton, Cena, Lesnar, and the Big Show, and he got massive heat for it. Ya know what, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that he IS in fact better than The Rock; In the ring (obviously) and on the mic. The Rock also had the benfit of having other guys in his feuds that could talk, where Punk is put in the ring with saps like The Big Show, Mysterio, and Jeff Hardy. He has to carry every promo he's been on to try to make the match interesting, something The Rock rarely had to do.

Can't find it but the promo by Miz at Summerslam was the only good bit of the PPV

You know Rhodes' promos on being Dashing, well I thought last night Miz can do some on being Awesome (Miz made it so good I had to give it capitals).

Chris Jericho shaming Michael Cole on RAW before NoC was the best.

Jeff "The Joker" Hardy has some funny promos lately. Talking about giving back to the fans. giving out chair shots and them being free.

Y2J's will always be the best to me.
The Miz will get there soon.
And the only other real person who pulls promos recently is Cody Rhodes, not to bad for him either.

Christians promo before his last ECW Championship match was awesome.
