Shame he quit the business. Davari is a very underated talker too!!

CM Punk is the best promo guy to come out of the indys.
His buddy Colt is one of my favourites too!
Superstar Billy Graham was an innovator and inspired so many.
Like the Hulkster and Jesse Ventura.
Arn Anderson's ability to cut a wrestling promo is head and shoulders above MANY of today's talent.
Obviously I never have the foggiest idea as to what he's saying but Hiroyoshi Tenzan's promo's seem epic!!
Jerry Lawler talked hundreds of thousand's of people into arena's in his heyday.
Raven is a genius at work when he's focused.
But Cactus Jack's anti-hardcore promos in ECW were the best I've ever heard.

I'm sure I could go on forever but I'll give the rest of you a chance lol

We've touched briefly upon those anti-hardcore promos on this boad before, absolutely incredible. Enough to send shivers down the spine.

Steve Austin's anti WCW promos in ECW were out of this world, too - possibly the funniest promos of all time

Fuck yeah!!

Great thing about ECW. They let them be themselves more than any other federation.

Brilliant promo.

Definitely, the guy keeps you waching, doesn't he?

Can't believe no one's mentioned HBK yet, these vids are gold

Shawn was a great talker. I think one of the reasons he get's left out of these types of discussions is his lack of catchphrases. Shawn told it like he saw it and rarely minced his words.

Moving on to someone closer to home. Englands own Alex Shane is one of the best talker's anywhere in the world today.

Here are the promos for his match with recent WWE signee Martin Stone. The shoot style of them really gives the build up to the match a real and edgy feel. Alex really lets Martin have it in the third video. Watch these and theres no way you wont want to watch their match. Guaranteed!

Brian Pillman was solid gold on the mic. Such a shame he went so young.
Ted DiBiase was also awesome to watch.
The Rock.
Rick Rude.
Ric Flair.

On the flip-side, some really bad, annoying or just completley boring talkers were;
Bret Hart (Yawn)
Chris Benoit (No Personality)
The Ultimate Warrior
Lex Luger
